About The Instructor, Bethany Learn

Beth Learn, founder of Fit2B TummySafe Fitness at fit2b.comHi, I’m the founder of Fit2B Studio, and I became interested in fitness at age 16 when I showed up in a dress to my step aerobics high school PE class. Wow, ! I had no idea what to expect, but I was instantly hooked on moving to music and how it made my body feel! Even as a child, I was interested in bodies and how they adapt during pregnancy and birth. My mission here on Fit2B is changing lives one tummy at a time and making movement meaningful for women who want to be stronger contributors to their families, communities, and world!

What happened after that first step class I took? Well, at just 18 years of age, I certified as a group fitness instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) and headed off to college at Oregon State University, graduating with honors with my bachelor of science in Exercise and Sport Science & Pre Physical Therapy in 2001.

I used my group fitness certification to pay my way through school, teaching up to 14 classes per week! I remember studying at the club on a recumbent bike in between classes! My knees and linea alba would pay the price of all that overexercising later…

I maintained my AFAA certification for 16 years with a wide variety of courses and workshops. I now maintain a certification through Yoga Alliance which requires that I complete at least 30 hours of continuing education every 3 years. In 2019 alone, I completed 53 hours of training.

Some of the workshops and additional certifications I have held:

After graduation from college, I was hired as a full-time assistant manager at a federal fitness facility. My job responsibilities for “Club Fed” – yes, that’s what it was called – included all aspects of management and customer service as well as personal training, designing and leading exercise classes for all demographics, writing and editing the club’s newsletter, speaking at group luncheons, designing and implementing new group fitness formats, and creating member retention programs.

Throughout my fitness career, I’ve had the pleasure of teaching just about everything: step aerobics, cycling, water aerobics, group weight lifting, senior fitness, pre/post-natal exercise, and dance aerobics as well as Pilates and Yoga. My love for choreography and rhythm contribute to my unique and flowing joyful style in all the content that you will find on this site. You will discover that I enjoy sharing and learning any technique that improves your desire and ability to move more, not just during your “workout” but throughout your everyday, walking around life! Thus, my diverse approaches to teaching creates great variety. My radically different brand – Fit2B – is also known for its diastasis friendly workouts!

Bethany recording a workout for Fit2B StudiosMy goal is getting you “fit to be” chasing your kids, your dreams, your goals. I never stop learning {there’s no way to record all the countless hours I’ve spent reading, talking to colleagues around the world, sitting in on lectures, picking the brains of trainers and physical therapists, shadowing mentors, all the things} plus – and most importantly – I have a real passion for making fitness accessible to everyday people, especially those who find even the simplest movements daunting. Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone who was afraid to move START moving! Most of all, I love helping busy parents and those with limiting diseases and disabilities approach exercise with confidence and enthusiasm.

How Motherhood Changed Me…

Bethany Learn - Founder and Instructor for Fit2B StudiosOnce I became a mother, I began lessening my workload outside the home, focusing on my children, not going crazy, and relearning my body’s new landscape. My niche in the fitness field shifted from trying to make everyone sore to helping people regain their confidence and strength from their deepest core outward. I developed a heart for true beginners and people starting over.

As a mother myself, I felt like I was starting over – reclaiming territory, if you will – and I could deeply relate to others who are trying to find their fitness groove again in bodies that feel unfamiliar.

My diastasis-aware workouts are designed to help women {and a lot of men} connect with and use their bodies at a higher level. My goal is to help people unmuddle their middles without ripping their bodies apart. You will love my soothing voice, down-to-earth cues and the heart I have for YOUR WELLBEING as my client and member of Fit2B.

From 2.5 to 1.5

“Yay! I’m so excited! I had an appt with my physiotherapist today and my Diastasis has gone from 2.5 to 1.5 fingers!! Thank you so very much, Beth Learn!”
