Sandra Maloney: This amazing Mama has got some serious spunk that is contagious! I dare you to workout next to her. Besides being an all-around bad ass, she is one of the realest Mamas we know.

Tell us about your family: My husband, Brent and I met in Manhattan in 2008 and were married two years later. Since then we have had three vivacious boys, Xavier 5, Samuel 3 and Elias 1 and a dog named Logan. We recently moved to Westlake Village because of a job opportunity Brent could not refuse. We had always joked about moving to California because of the weather so when the opportunity came up, we knew we had to take it. It wasn’t easy leaving our family and friends but we love the idea of taking our boys on this wild adventure across country.
Current/Previous Career: I worked with college students as a Career Counselor for 11 years and stopped working full time two years ago. Now I work from home for a restoration company managing their human resources.
What was your childhood ambition? I always wanted to travel and see the world. I have been so lucky to see so many amazing places.
What is the furthest you have been away from home? I have traveled on vacation to far off places but California is the farthest I have lived from home.
How did you find Fit4Mom? I was at the playground at Triunfo Park when I saw a Stroller Strides class end and just asked one of the moms.
How has Fit4Mom impacted your life? This group has given me a constant. Every day I can find a community with a common goal; be stronger, healthier and better moms for our babies. As a counselor I know that there is no greater act than empowering others. Women and moms have the power to do anything but it is hard to remember that when we are exhausted and overwhelmed by the daily “mom duties”. Fit4mom helped me to see just how strong I am for myself.
What's your favorite exercise? Maniacs! Because who doesn’t love to just let is all go wacky sometimes?
What's your proudest moment? Besides having my three beautiful boys and marrying Brent, I would have to say completing the NY Marathon. Not many things come close to the thrill of running that city I love so much.
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us: I am a Jersey girl who loves country music!
