Hello! I am Bridget Hall, from Durham, NC but currently living in Pittsburgh, PA while my husband, John gets his MBA at Carnegie Mellon University. We have two sons, Connor (4 years) and Logan (2 years). My husband is active duty army and we have lived in Fort Bragg NC, Fort Gordon GA, Columbus GA and now Pittsburgh, PA. I graduated from the College of the Holy Cross with a Bachelors Degree in Spanish and continued to get my Masters degree at James Madison University in Speech-Language Pathology. I currently stay at home with my children and LOVE being a mother.
I have always led an active lifestyle. I played field hockey, swam on the swim team, and ran distance in Track and Field in high school. I went on to play field hockey for a few years in college. During college I found my passion for hot yoga. I felt and still feel as hot yoga has kept me continue the run. Over the last 5 years of being pregnant or a mom of young children I have realized how important it is for women to encourage and empower each other in their goals. Stroller Strong Moms of Columbus, Ga was my first insight into this. It was completely life changing. Yes we get an awesome workout, we do some yoga to stay injury-free and we all encourage each other in our races or fitness goals. Not only do we encourage each other, but are great role models for the sweet babies we have in our strollers.
I cannot WAIT to bring SLAM to Pittsburgh, PA. Over the last year living in Pittsburgh, PA I thought somehow I could live without SLAM and it is just not possible. I have an undying passion for hot yoga, running, and fitness. After living in Columbus, GA for 3 years and teaching yoga to Stroller Strong Moms Columbus, I knew I needed to get fitness certified and start my own community here in Pittsburgh. I LOVE sharing yoga, but I also know what is means to be a new mom. The benefits of the Stroller Strong Mom community is not only a wonderful fitness class, but community of women who motivate, empower and befriend one another. I missed the community in GA so much that I participated in the Run Across GA, a 260 mile run, for the second year in a row to raise money for House of Heros, Make a Wish and Camp Abilities. I am a certified Bikram yoga instructor, 200 hr Rolf Gates Power Vinyasa Flow, ACE fitness instructor and CPR/First Aid certified. I am ready to BRING IT to Stroller Strong Moms Pittsburgh!!!
