Aileen

Aileen Hunt

Owner & Instructor

Teaches: Prenatal Aquafit, Stroller Fitness, Mom & Baby Fitness, Mom & Baby Barre, Postnatal Core, Infant Massage 

With a bachelor’s degree in modern dance, Aileen has had a lifelong love for movement. She has never considered herself a sporty person and fondly remembers signing up for the third grade softball team just to get the cute hat. She's a non-typical fitness instructor who loves moving and being outdoors. 

Aileen taught Aquafit classes for several years, including throughout her twin pregnancy. When she became a parent in 2008, she decided to become a certified Manitoba Fitness Council Group Fitness Leader and Pre & Postnatal Fitness Specialist and bring specialized pre/postnatal classes to Winnipeg in 2009. She benefitted from her own programs through her second pregnancy in 2012.  Her classes focus on the joy of movement and creating connections with each other and our families.  

Aileen is also a self-proclaimed Winnipeg booster, who loves our community and is enthusiastic about making it a better place for us all.  Prior to teaching pre/postnatal fitness, she worked and volunteered for several art organizations.

Her love of fitness, community connection and the outdoors drives her desire to help Winnipeg families stay healthy and strong, all while having a good time!

Ashley

Ashley Fenske

Instructor

Teaches: Stroller Fitness, Prenatal Fitness, Mom and Baby Fitness, Parent and Baby Bootcamp, Prenatal Aquafit, Mom and Baby Aquafit, Prenatal and Postnatal Personal Training.

When Ashley became pregnant with her first child health and fitness took on a whole new meaning. Eating well and getting exercise was no longer about losing weight or looking a certain way - it was about being healthy for herself and her baby.  
 
She joined our Prenatal Fitness class in 2013 and hasn't looked back since. Ashley was a participant throughout her first two prenatal and postnatal journeys, and became an instructor after deciding not to go back to her "9 to 5" in the spring of 2017. Her growing list of certifications include Sport Conditioning, Pre and Postnatal Fitness, AquaFitness and Group Cycle. 
 
She loves the community of like-minded women and parents and when asked if she likes her job, she will quickly answer "yes, because I never feel like I'm going to work!"  Her main goals are for her participants to feel comfortable in class and to challenge themselves safely.  
 
When she isn't teaching you can find her busy with her three kids. Ashley's favourite family activities include bike rides and hanging out at The Forks.

Hailey March

Instructor

Teaches: Parent & Baby Fitness, Stroller Fitness, Prenatal Cardio + Strength

Fitness has been an important part of Hailey’s life as long as she can remember. Ever since she was young, she has loved trying new activities to stay active. Hailey grew up dancing, competing and coaching in gymnastics and rock climbing throughout Manitoba with her family. She has played volleyball, ultimate and even tried cross country. It wasn’t until she had her first baby in 2017 and she attended stroller fitness that she found an activity that she truly felt part of a community. After her second child in 2020, and many more Fit Together classes, she knew this was more than a fitness class for her. She wanted to find a way to continue (without necessarily having another baby), which brought her to instructing!

Hailey is certified through Manitoba Fitness Council in sports conditioning and pre- and post-natal, and is looking forward to expanding her training as she moves forward.  

Fit Together not only helped her with her physical health after having kids but also her mental well-being. This was the major driving force behind her perusing a career in fitness. She is motivated to help other moms keep active and healthy through this transitional time in their lives.

Hailey would love to welcome you to her class soon!

Setting aside intentional time for oneself as a mom or mom to be is important.
