"After doing the first workout, I was singing Aretha Franklin's Natural Woman.You make my life so much better! " ~ Jennifer
"More women need to hear your message of being proud of becoming a mom and all it’s left us physically, while also remembering that we don’t need to settle for incontinence or constant pain." ~ Jeanelle
is a mom of two and best known for her no nonsense approach to postnatal fitness. As a postnatal fitness expert with over 15 years experience as a coach, Christy had dedicated her coaching career to helping moms become fit, empowered and symptom free in their body after babies.
Being able to relate her own struggles with return to exercise after her daughter was born, Christy has been able to understand first hand what moms need and are lacking from the fitness industry.
Christy's passion for helping moms discover their fit-potenial after babies, shines through in every aspect of her coaching career. She helps moms redefine their #mombod through 1:1 coaching, classes, online coaching and an active social media presence.
Christy's reputation for being down to earth and her ability to produce fast results, has made her one of the go to postnatal coaches in the industry.
Moms come to me every day and tell me they feel weak, tired and frustrated about their body after babies.
And when I tell them about my own struggles returning to exercise after my daughter was born, they want to know how I managed to get even STRONGER now than I was before babies.
Many moms have tried to return to exercise, only to quit because of embarassing things like peeing when they jump or run. Often times it's a recurring ache or pain that just won't go away. These situations are much to common and there is little support for the active mom.
Some moms are simply too confused about what is "right" or "wrong" and avoid returning to exercise for fear of injury. It's not easy finding helpful knowledge on postpartum exercise and navigating the realm of fitness can be daunting.
Bad advice such as "it's just part of being a mom" or "just do kegels" is making a moms return to a physically active lifestyle harder than it needs to be.
1 in 4 women will experience some form of pelvic floor dysfunction in their lifetime. That's a lot of women who need help, guidance and understanding.
Not to mention the fitness industry is saturated with programs preying on our insecurities and making moms feel like they need to "bounce back" or "lose their mommy tummy in 14 days!".
It's awful any way you look at it, and I couldn't sit back and watch it happen any longer.
So I put together my proven strategies used when coaching my moms and seeing their results sometimes within one session. I called up the pros I trust and asked them to contribute important information on breastfeeding, stress and yoga.
Because living a healthy, fit lifestyle isn't just about exercising! It's about recovery, fueling our bodies and being the most resiliant version of ourselves possible.
"I’m thrilled to say that I absolutely love the workout from week 1 and this weeks yoga flow!! Big thumbs up!" ~ Celine
Q: As a new mom, I don't have a lot of time. How long are the workouts? A: As a mom of two I understand how precious time is! Each workout is only 30 minutes or less if done without interruption.
Q: I haven't had my baby yet, can I start the program now and repeat it after baby is born? A: MRTT is safe for any expecting moms that have been cleared for exercise by their doctor. Once baby arrives and you've been cleared for exercise, you can begin the program again.
Q: Do I need to have a gym membership to do the workouts? A: NOPE! You can do all of the workouts from home and they require very little equipment.
Q: Do I need equipment for the program? And what do I need? A: YES. You will need a few standard items such as a resistance band with handles, a set of light/medium dumbbells and a yoga mat. Some optional additions are mini bands and kettlebells.
Q: I pee a little when I run, sneeze, cough or jump. Will this help? A: MRTT will give you the tools you need to heal and recover from urinary incontinence (which is very common, but not normal). I always encourage you to seek out a pelvic health physio for additional support to compliment this program and give you your best chances at recovery.
Q: Will there be modifications for each exercises in case I can't do what is programmed? A: Absolutely. I've included regressions and progressions where applicable so that no matter your level of ability, you feel confident in completing each workout.
Q: I just had my baby; how soon can I begin the program? A: While there are many aspects of the program you can use immediately, you should always wait till you have been cleared by your doctor for exercise to begin the workouts. Typically this is around 6-8 weeks. Take advantage of all the extra nutrition, education and more until then!
Q: I have a really weak core; will this help? A: MRTT was created with a moms core strength and functionality in mind and each workout had been designed with a special focus on core and total body well being.
Q: How will I access the program? A: The entie 12 weeks of workouts and content are housed on a web portal for easy access 24/7. You can get in to your program from a phone, tablet or computer!
