I am Heidi Aarestad and I have been a Stretch-n-Grow coach since February of 2012. I love my job! It is so much fun to go visit all these great kids, teach them a thing or two about health, and get those little bodies exercising to some fun music. Plus, I get to influence them to form healthy habits that could last for their lifetime. It is truly meaningful for me.
I always knew that I wanted to work with kids, so my degree is in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I have worked in a variety of settings with a variety of age groups. Over time, I have found that I prefer working with toddlers and preschoolers. They are little bundles of energy, curious about the world, and so candid with their feelings- I just love them!
I live in Eagan with my husband, Tom, and our two sons, Cole (20) and Luke (19). I teach most of my classes in Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, Mendota Heights & South St. Paul.
My name is Krysta Meisberger and I am so happy to be a Stretch-n-Grow coach. I have a passion for fitness and nutrition and I am so happy to be able to share that with all of your little ones! I love seeing their excitement to play and learn all about how to make healthy choices. Their smiling faces bring such a joy to me everyday. I hope that I can inspire them to live a healthy life in the future.
I live in Apple Valley with my husband Josh and our two boys Jonah (7) and Eli (5). In addition to fitness and nutrition, I have a huge passion for interior design and home renovation. I love to stay busy and active, so if I'm not outside hiking or playing with the kids I am working on the house. I also love music and painting and anything that gets my creative side going.
I am so happy to be a part of such a wonderful and inspiring team and can't wait to coach your wonderful little children!
