Elizabeth Trindade was a former ballet dancer from Seattle, WA. She moved to NYC in the mid 80's to pursue her dance career. She garnered her SAG (Screen Actors Guild) card because of her balance skills as a dancer and walked a tightrope for a commercial. She managed as a Working Observer at The Screen Actors Guild and soon discovered Acting was not her thing. Too much Drama!
Knowing that dancing and hoping for a commercial was not the money making career to truly support a life in Manhattan and to hopefully meet a husband, she retired as a dancer/actress to focus on life and met her husband while waiting tables in a swanky Upper Eastside Italian Restaurant.
Deep inside Elizabeth missed dancing, She decided to bring her tight rope and dance experience to her style of training. With that she called herself an alignment trainer and opened up Aline Fitness, Inc. Located in midtown Manhattan she and her husband became a strong fitness duo! The two trainers grew their business to a premier training company. Elizabeth became personal trainer to Dr. Henry Kissinger, Anthony Quinn and many top stressed out C.E.O's in Manhattan.
Life was Fit as a Fiddle and with that baby #! was born and Lizzie became a New Mom. I think this is where the story really begins. It was NOT easy to be a New Mom in NYC. Let alone a once Fit Mom. Trapped in her 4th Floor Walkup with a their first baby, Doberman, Kyzer and the New Baby Girl, Trindade felt her life as she knew it Fancy and Free was Gone. Depressed she dragged her four wheeled large pram, her newborn, the dog down four flights of stairs. Crying, feeling alone, as her husband was working. She put on her Madonna music and while rolling up Park Avenue at night, she held the handle of the stroller and saw it as a ballet barre. She began to dance. Strollercize was born.
More of the story of those first months as a UNFIT Mom are in the book, Strollercize, The Workout For New Mothers. It was published when most people did not understand fitness with a stroller. But after she was discovered in Central Park with her Moms and Members of Strollercize, the Media Blitzed her and folks began to see that a Mom can get fit behind a stroller.
You can see the Press and Media Clips of the history of Strollercize. Lizzie is now a Older FIT MOM. She has strolled the road for New Moms who will be taking that journey. She is excited to train these Moms in her New Online Club. She will also be training and Certifying her team of fitness professionals so they can go ONSITE and gather Moms together to get fit with a Stroller.
Strollercize officially starting running classes under the Aline Fitness Personal Training umbrella. It took five months to get Moms to believe in the idea!
Channel 7 came to video the class and we had to get Moms, Non Moms, stuffed animals and borrowed kids to create a class of seven. We were NOT ready for the Press. But after it ran on the news, The answering machine was ringing all through the night.
Being a choreographer, Lizzie quickly realized that a line of Moms and strollers and needy babies required a system. So she created the Strollercize System and put a language that Moms could understand to all of the exercises.
This is probably what makes the program unique. She completed Strollercize New Fitionary of all the terms used in the program and is NOW part of the new 2020 Certification and Training program for her Independent Contractors.
