About Chad Van Herpe
Baby Steps Perinatal Fitness started in 2008 while my wife, Juliann, was pregnant with our first child. With a degree in Kinesiology, and over 15,000 personal training sessions under my belt, I was inclined to further explore the correlation between exercise and pregnancy. What I discovered was an abundance of information in overwhelming support of exercise throughout pregnancy.This inspired me to become certified as a Pre/Postnatal Exercise Specialist (AFPA) with the goal being to positively influence the health of both mother and baby during this exciting, yet challenging 9-month journey.
At any given moment you'll find me training, surfing, body-surfing, skateboarding, golfing, hiking, camping, taking photos or hanging with my family.
