Fitness Coaching For Females
“Strong As A Mother”
Our MomFit classes are designed for women just like you. Pre- or postnatal, we want to help you keep moving safely and in a supportive community. Plus, you can bring your little one(s) with you to class!
Every woman’s body, pregnancy, and delivery is different. Let’s work together to assess how your body is feeling and how you’d like to keep exercising during your pregnancy or after the birth of your child.
Breathing strategies, specific movement modifications, returning to exercise plans, and any specific questions you have can be addressed during the movement portion of your 1-on-1 consultation.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does a MomFit class look like?
All classes are led by a coach which means that you are never on your own figuring out what to do. The coach will lead a group warm up and explain what to do and set-up for the strength and conditioning portions of the class. They will help you find movements/modifications that make sense for you. The best part is that you can bring your little one(s) to class with you!
Is it normal to pee while I workout?
Incontinence is one of the most common symptoms for women during exercise. Although it is common, it shouldn’t be the norm. There are pressure management strategies and breathing techniques that can be taught to mitigate these symptoms.
I haven’t had a baby but have pelvic floor issues, can you help?
Yes! Many women experience symptoms related to their pelvic floor that are unrelated to child birth. We can go over breathing, bracing and pressure-management strategies in a 1-on-1 consultation to get you moving without symptoms.
What if my baby cries during class?
This is totally normal and expected! If your little one needs some extra attention during the class, you are always free to give it to them! We can modify the workout so that you can hold them or you can just take a break to give them what they need.
Is it dangerous for me to exercise in my 3rd trimester?
Every woman and every pregnancy is different. I believe that movement is safe and important throughout pregnancy but what that movement looks like will differ for everyone depending on how they feel and any symptoms that might be present. In a 1-on-1 consultation, we can find movements that work for your body as it changes.
How soon can I workout after I have the baby?
Just like pregnancy, every delivery and recovery is also different. There is no one-size-fits-all plan to get back to activities you love. Recovery can depend on your delivery, sleep, eating, stress levels, and your support system. Some women can start walking in the first few days while others need a couple weeks to go around the block (I was one of them!). Regardless of where you are starting at, there is a way to re-connect to your core and start moving your body in different ways again.
