Pre/Postnatal

Making and birthing a new human is hard work for the female body. It's work it's perfectly designed to do, but it's still work! And it doesn't end at birth. Taking care of a newborn is more physically demanding than one might think, and it starts right at a time when the body is in need of rest and healing. Research has shown that physical fitness during pregnancy can be a tremendous help to alleviate some of the aches and pains that come with pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period, and the right fitness program will prepare you for the demands of childbirth and being a mom.

Fit For Life

Fitness is not just for those who are already fit. Or those who are young. Or those who are slim. Fitness is simply a habit of moving your body in a way that makes it stronger, gives it more stamina, and a tremendous wealth of health benefits. Being fit and engaging in physical activity literally slows down the aging process, both physically and mentally! The best way to do that is to keep moving every day, in ways that give you joy. And for added benefits, incorporate resistance training and some form of cardio into your weekly routine. Some like to do this on their own, some like to do it with others. I can guide you by designing a workout program that you can do on your own; I can be there with you, one on one, in person or virtually, if you prefer that personal support; or you can purchase one of my pre-designed workout programs that give you
ll my expertise to help you reach your goals on your own.

Blog

Whenever I feel strongly about a fitness related issue, I blog about it. Topics I feel particularly passionate about are (you guessed it) women's fitness, pre/postnatal fitness, stereotyping and body image in the fitness industry and in general, misinformation and the latest "fads".
