I've got a lot to chat with you about.
I want you to know more about me and my story as I think we are very similar. I want my story to give you hope and motivation that you can get great results too.
I am so grateful you are here. Thank you. I see you and I want to help you succeed with your issues with your core.
Here's more about me because I am very similar to you a few years ago.
There I was, a horrified, embarrassed, lost, scared new mother and fitness trainer with tummy that made me still look pregnant even though I wasn't.
I was trying to get myself working out again to gain my strength back and get back to feeling good in my body again after having a baby.
The thing is, at the time I was this lower belly pooch that made me look pregnant and it wouldn't go away.
My belly felt like play-dough.
I am a small framed women so this belly that I had was noticeable and very embarrassing for me.
The big problem was that I realized I was suffering from an ab separation also known as diastasis recti. That meant suddenly I felt like a failure as a personal trainer and as a mom.
- What was important to do?
- What was safe to do?
- How long does it take to heal?
- What should I be doing for workouts?
- Could I ever workout normally again?
Then, as if by chance, something amazing happened...
I discovered other professionals teaching on diastasis recti and had plans for how to heal it.
I read so many articles and watched so many videos, even got certified in pregnancy and diastasis recti trainings to have better understanding of it and how to heal it.
I learned more about what was important to fix this ab separation that was causing my belly to look "pregnant" even though I wasn't anymore.
Instantly it became crystal clear to me on what I needed to do to heal and then to teach other moms how to do the same!
My plan was to start fixing my daily alignment, start engaging my pelvic floor and TVA muscles properly to strengthen them to close the gap.
I healed it!
Then I got pregnant again... this time I was smarter about everything.
I worked out differently during pregnancy and I trained my deep core muscles every day.
I focused more on simple lifestyle habits that helped me tremendously.
I felt amazing during my second pregnancy plus...
I had a MUCH faster labor and push time and better postpartum recovery.
I was ALL BELLY for both pregnancies so my core strength and my daily life (like sitting, standing, sleeping, holding my child) were all very important in my journey.
My core was so much stronger during my second pregnancy that at one month postpartum I had a smaller ab separation compared to my first pregnancy where it was over 4 finger width and very deep!
I was so excited.
What I was doing was paying off.
Everything was so different and better after my second child.
I started doing safe core specific exercises that were designed to heal diastasis recti, to get rid of lower belly pooch.
But I didn’t stop there.
I then focused on my daily life habits in terms of my alignment.
I had no idea your alignment was playing a MAJOR factor in getting and healing any diastasis recti or weak core issues.
After that, I started to create workouts that continued to help strengthen my entire body and my core...
Building on that success, I decided to
create a program that was specifically made for moms.
For MOMS who have diastasis recti or weak core like I did after having kids that wanted to heal it.
To create an inclusive program that gave them all the necessary tools, exercises, workouts, lifestyle and mindset tips...
With Retrain Your Core I can now:
jump without peeing in my pants
wear tighter clothes without looking pregnant
feel more comfortable when my husband touches my stomach
go out in public and not have people saying "congrats, when are you expecting?"
feel more confident, strong and happy in my body after having 2 kids
And after my second child I was successfully able to workout differently during pregnancy and followed this exact plan inside Retrain Your Core and had a much smaller gap at the one month mark postpartum!
And that's why I'm so excited to share this with you so you can get these types of results too!
Retrain Your Core is the exact program that I did after both my pregnancies with great success.
I know you will too.
