Our Team


Hey Ya'll!! My name is Chelsey and I am thrilled to join the FIT4MOM family here in Chattanooga. Growing up as a military brat, I have always struggled with the question, "where are you from," so I decided one day just to choose a place. I chose good ol' San Antonio, Texas. It is where I spent my glorious high school years and met my five dearest girlfriends. After HS, I went on to study sports medicine at nearby Texas State University and then took a graduate assistant position at Clemson University (go Tigers!), where I met my husband of 7 years.

Fast forward to December 2015, my husband got a job offer that would move us to Chattanooga, TN. We accepted, relocated and welcomed our son, Austin and daughter, Devyn just 10 days later! New city, new house, no family, no friends and first time mom to twins...to say that I wasn't in desperate need of SOMETHING to look forward to was a huge understatement.

That is where FIT4MOM entered the picture and saved me. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time (funny how that happens), just as they were launching their Grand Opening. I jumped at the opportunity and IT. WAS. A. GAME. CHANGER!! Nowhere else was I able to get in a good workout (while bonding with my littles), squeeze in some girl talk (which is practically therapy), and have countless convenient playdates. Did I mention the Moms Night Outs?

It is a win-win situation and I hope you will take that leap of faith and join "Our Village" of encouragement, strength and inspiration. I look forward to seeing you in class!more

Hi I'm Elizabeth! I was born in Nashville, TN. I mostly was raised in Nashville with the exception of a short 4 years in Fort Worth, TX. Although I have lived here for over 15 years, Nashville will always be home to me. I love all kinds of music! So growing up in a city that is alive with it everywhere you go makes my heart happy! After high school I moved to Chattanooga to attend the University of TN at Chattanooga for my freshman year of college. I decided I wanted a career in the dental field, so I transferred to Chattanooga State for their dental assisting program. I became a registered dental assistant in May of 2004. I met my husband shortly after moving here in 2001 and we married in 2008. We have been blessed with two beautiful kids, Nathan(7 years) and Ella(15months).


We are a very active family. Whether it is fall, winter, spring or summer you will catch us on four-wheelers, boats or at a sporting event. We are avid Tennessee Vol fans. If we aren't at football games then we are on the ballfields watching our son play. My other ball moms out there...I'm sure you feel my pain! I'm hoping soon we will be at dance class with our daughter.

After 11 years of working in the dental field, I decided to stay home with our children. I feel very fortunate to be able to do this. It's not easy and it's all new territory for me but I'm loving it! I was looking for something that Ella and I could do together but I wasn't sure what. We had taken music class. It was fun but it was only one day a week. I found myself looking for ways to fill our days. That's when I found FIT4MOM. An advertisement came across my Facebook page about the Grand Opening. It was the very next morning and we had nothing to do. So I loaded everyone up and ran there! It was exactly what we needed! I want to emphasize WE! Because it's not just a workout for me. It's teaching my daughter the importance of being healthy, active, and social. I've also watched some of the older kids learning letters and how to count. We aren't just a group of women that get together for a quick workout...we are a team, a Village as we call it. We help each other. We give advice and we encourage each other! What mom doesn't need that?

Hi, my name is Rachel McClellan. I was born in Jackson, TN and grew up in several locations across the states of TN, GA, and SC. Where I’m from, Tea is usually proceeded by the word Sweet, summertime is all about being outdoors, and someone’s heart is always being blessed. What can I say, I’m a southerner!

My parents were both college athletes. After graduating from high school in Spartanburg, SC, I accepted a volleyball scholarship to the University of Illinois. For the Fighting Illini, I was an all Big-Ten performer and earned a bachelor’s degree in Speech Communications.

After college I spent several years, playing professional indoor volleyball in Puerto Rico, Spain, the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, and South Korea. All of that travel made me miss home. My boyfriend, at the time, had relocated to Chicago. When I returned to the United States we settled down, got married, and had a family. We lived in Chicago for 9 years, and boy did I miss The South. I’d slip away whenever possible to soak up my Mother’s good food and company. In the last few years, I was blessed to become a proud mother to two wonderful little girls. Adelynn is 4 yrs. old and Avery Kate is 2. Immediately after Adelynn was born, and because I was among the first of my friends to have children, I began seeking out a new set of Mom friends. I happened upon Stroller Strides, went to a class, and was instantly hooked. I became an instructor and knew at that moment that I had found my tribe. By the time Avery Kate was born, in November 2014, I knew I wanted to open a franchise. 8 weeks later my Mother and best friend, Dianna, passed away unexpectedly. She was 55 years old. There isn’t a day that goes by, that I don’t wish I could call her.

Shortly thereafter, my husband took a new job that gave us the option of relocating anywhere in the Southeast. In less than 5 minutes, I knew that I wanted to go back to Chattanooga, TN. Some of my best years growing up were here in this town. I’m fortunate to have a few friends, from back then, that I’m still close with today. Additionally, this town is consistently ranked as one of the best outdoor cities in the United States, and is one of The South’s hidden gems. I can’t think of a better way to begin my new chapter than launching a Fit4Mom franchise in Chattanooga. This company created the community, which has changed the trajectory of my life. My hope is that I can facilitate something that will do for another Mom, what FIT4MOM has done for me.

Hello! I'm Sara Hendley. I am PUMPED to be a part of the FIT4MOM movement! I was born in Minnesota and moved to Atlanta for high school and college. I attended the University of Georgia and studied Kinesiology. I met my husband second semester of Freshman year! We got married while I finished my Master's in Kinesiology and lived near Athens, Georgia.

In January 2016, Justin took a job in Chattanooga AND we found out we were pregnant with our son Jack! Moving away from friends and family while pregnant was tough!! After Jack was born I googled "mom fitness Chattanooga", discovered FIT4MOM and have been hooked ever since! After 10 years in the fitness industry, I have the fitness part down but I need help with the mom stuff! FIT4MOM has saved me in so many ways! I love being able to keep Jack with me while I get a great workout AND I am teaching him to exercise regularly and have LOTS of fun while doing it!! I thank God for letting me be a part of this fantastic growing group!!

I hope you join us for class!! If it's not the fitness that you're looking for, you will find something you need with "Our Village"!

Hi I'm Whitney Sink! I am originally from Lubbock, Texas but moved to Georgia when I was 8 years old. I graduated from Ringgold High School in 2005. I attended Kennesaw State University my freshman year but moved out to Utah my Sophomore year. I attended BYU and was married to Ryan Sink. We moved back to the Chattanooga area and I finished my Bachelor's degree in Marketing at Dalton State College in 2010.

We are the parents to Emaline (7), Bennett (2), and Nala (8, our fur baby). We love to travel as a family and have been able to visit some amazing places. We enjoy being outdoors and summer is our favorite season. You can find us at the pool 90% of the time. I love trying new, healthy recipes mixed with some sweet treats although my baking skills are lacking. I love fitness and trying new activities that keep my body strong.

When I first heard about Stroller Strides I was eager to try it out. I had never heard of the program. It's been a great way to stay active while involving my children. Bennett sings the songs from class throughout the day and I'll find him doing squats and other exercises. Not only is it adorable but it makes my heart swell knowing that he's watching my good habits and will hopefully always value good health. It is so rewarding watching moms come together to bond over fitness, motherhood and all that it entails, and build a village they can rely on during this phase of life.
