I have literally told every mom I know about this program!
Before I had my two children, I had been an avid runner—an activity I got a lot of joy out of. However, after having my children, I went from someone who could run 8-minute pace in my sleep, to someone who struggled to run 11-minute miles.
After my son (baby No. 2) was born, I saw a pelvic floor physical therapist, and this helped me immensely. It healed the damage done during my births and pregnancies, as well as helped me fix my diastasis recti. However, while the damage was healed, the core and pelvic floor strength were still lacking. My stomach was basically a bag of Jell-O that was barely holding me upright. What was more disconcerting is I was trying every core regimen I could get my hands on, but nothing worked. In fact, some of the programs I tried even seemed to make things worse.
I cannot tell you how much this program transformed my body! This is the first program I have found where I feel like I actually regained significant core and pelvic floor strength. I feel like a whole person again, as opposed to someone who is walking around with a gaping hole in my midsection. I am happy to report that I have been able to start building up my running miles again, and I have noticed a HUGE difference in my running. I am beginning to hit some of the paces I ran before I had babies—something I had pretty much given up on! My core is so much stronger, and I’m recruiting my hamstrings in a way that I never have before—even before I had children. Also, because the class focuses on posture, I am able to use better posture when I run, and I have noticed that my hips no longer hurt after I run, and I don’t feel beat up after my long runs like I used to. I feel like I am now able to recover from my runs as quickly as I did before I had children.
There are so many powerful aspects to this program! I feel like taking the class precipitates a lifestyle change. Not only are you able to regain your core and pelvic floor strength and improve your diastasis recti, but you are able to make adjustments to your posture in your everyday life, which helps alleviate back and hip pain. Plus, as a bonus, I lost my “mom paunch” after completing this class. This was not a goal of mine, because I did not think it was possible (nor did I really care if I ever lost it), but I am happy to say that it is gone
I have literally told every mom I know about this program! It is worth the time and effort, and it’s worth every cent! You will feel like yourself again, which is why I recommend it to any mom I meet who is struggling with her post-partum body. This class has taught me that with a little commitment, it is possible to get your body’s functionality back. You don’t have to struggle with pain or give up the things you love. I am able to run again—which is an activity that gives me great joy and a sense of peace. Thanks Catherine!
