Hitting the easy button isn’t a bad thing during any stages of motherhood. In fact, I would go as far as saying it’s a necessity, especially when we’re talking about exercising. ⁣

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗸𝗲𝘆 𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗲𝗮𝘀𝘆 𝗹𝗼𝗼𝗸𝘀 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘆𝗼𝘂. ⁣

For some people that means working with a coach.⁣
Others it’s having accountability from friends.⁣
Some need to go to the gym.⁣
Others love an online class.⁣
Some want a 20 min workout.⁣
Others want an hour. ⁣

Let’s face it, when things are hard for us, we often procrastinate or skip it altogether. So while I said it’s important to make exercise easy, one might argue that it’s finding the ease in everything or as many things as possible. ⁣

There is no right or wrong here. It’s finding out what works for you and what is easy for you and your life. ⁣

For me right now, that looks like meal prepping all the food on Sunday but also eating the same things throughout the week. I used to eat different things for breakfast, which was easy then, but now it’s easier to just make one thing and eat it on repeat. I used to be an early morning exerciser, which was easy then, now I get it in during the day or while the kids are getting ready for school. I used to get a 30 minute workout in and that worked, and it still works now but I have more freedom to workout longer now if I want. ⁣

As a coach, I want exercise to be easy for you and I work with all of my clients to develop a program that is manageable and realistic for what is going on in their lives now. ⁣

I’m currently taking on one more 1:1 client, both online and in person. If you’re looking to get stronger during motherhood in a way that’s easy for you, send me a message and let’s chat. ⁣

What do you do to make exercise easy for you? Or what does hitting the easy button look like for you?⁣

I am just over a month into training for the biggest endurance race I have ever tackled. ⁣

This week we reassessed where we are at in our swim, bike and run. ⁣

And in each and every one of them I have seen improvements. ⁣

If your goal is to simply move your body and increase your overall fitness, random workouts like those in the Stronger Together Membership will get you there. ⁣

But if you have a specific goal to achieve something, a straight path, with a coach to keep you on that straight path, is the best way to get you there. ⁣

I used to be the queen of hiit workouts but strategically building strength and now strategically training for the Ironman has shown me a whole other world of benefits and potential. ⁣

If you have a goal you want support towards achieving during pregnancy and postpartum, because yes you can still have fitness goals during these chapters, let’s chat. I have space for 2 more 1:1 clients, online and in person. ⁣

11/08/2022

As humans, we have differences throughout our body. ⁣

As a coach, I see this in clients all the time. An exercise is easier on one side than the other or balance is different from side to side or there is a different range of motion from side to side. ⁣

And as coach I often hear phrases like:⁣
- that's my weak side⁣
- this side is better than the other⁣
- this movement is so bad on this side⁣

And maybe it is weaker or worse, or maybe it's just different. ⁣

Our brains and our thoughts are so powerful and when we form judgements around or give value to things, it changes how we view them and it might even change how our body responds. ⁣

For example you start step-ups thinking your right side is weak, how do you then approach the movement on that side? How do you set up? How do your thoughts impact your movement?⁣

VS if you start without judgement or expectation and just move? Maybe you let each side be whatever it is. How does that movement look and feel in your body?⁣

This is something I discuss with clients all the time. ⁣
Our brains and our thoughts are powerful, why not use them to our advantage? ⁣

𝗧𝗟:𝗗𝗥 We often have differences in our body and it could be beneficial to work on making those differences less pronounced, if you want to, AND the way we think about those differences may also play a big role in how we feel in our body and move during exercise and throughout our day. ⁣

What do you think? Do you agree or disagree? Can our thoughts influence the way we move?⁣

I was having a conversation with my training partner and my coach yesterday about our progress so far and we both expressed how much we value and appreciate that we don’t need to decide what our workouts look like. We open the app, see what our coach has programmed for us and then do it. It has been a huge weight lifted off our shoulders. ⁣

𝗗𝗲𝗰𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗳𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗴𝘂𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗹𝘆𝘇𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝗮 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗜 𝘀𝗲𝗲 𝗶𝘁 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗮𝘁𝗮𝗹 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘁𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘂𝗺 𝗳𝗶𝘁𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀. ⁣

Maybe you’re pregnant and you go to a fitness class but the class isn’t programmed for pregnant people and the instructor isn’t informed on how to modify movements for you which leads you to spending your whole workout making unnecessary decisions about what exercises you can even do. ⁣

Or maybe you’re postpartum and you want to start exercising again but you don’t know where to start and everything you google tells you something different which leads you to doing nothing because you don’t know what to even do and you’re scared you’re going to do something wrong. ⁣

Or maybe your day and brain are already full and you just don’t have the time or energy to decide what to do for movement that will help you reach your goals. ⁣

This friends, if the beauty of working with a coach. You get a program that is laid out for you, in a way that works for you, so you don’t have to add to that never ending list of decisions you’re already making each day. ⁣

Decision fatigue is real but how you move your body during pregnancy and postpartum doesn’t have to add to it. ⁣

Let me help you eliminate the guess work and move confidently during pregnancy and postpartum. Hit the link in my bio to learn how we can work together. ⁣

How do you deal with or combat decision fatigue? Drop your ideas below. ⁣

10/28/2022

This conversation has come up multiple times over the past week with clients so I thought this little reminder deserved a space on the grid. ⁣

There are so many factors that play into how we feel when we move our bodies, especially during pregnancy and postpartum. ⁣
- maybe you got your period⁣
- maybe you aren’t sleeping⁣
- maybe sickness is running rampant through your house⁣
- maybe you have nausea and can’t keep anything down⁣
- maybe you’ve just gone back to work⁣
- maybe _____________ (fill in the blank with whatever you need here)⁣

And it is 100% ok to scale back or slow down when that is what your body needs. ⁣

I promise that in doing so, you will get further ahead in the long run than you ever will by powering through. ⁣

Sometimes getting to the gym can be a huge barrier to exercise during pregnancy and postpartum. ⁣

Or maybe you can get to the gym but you don’t know what to do or maybe there’s nobody in your community with the knowledge and education to support you during pregnancy and postpartum. ⁣

This is when online training and programming can be great options to help you reach your fitness goals. ⁣

➡️ to see the different options I have for online personal training. ⁣

If you see something that could work for you, send me a message and let’s chat about how we could work together, or set up a call to see if we’d be a good fit. ⁣

Helping pregnant and postpartum people feel strong and capable in their bodies, in ways that work for them, is my jam.⁣

And I feel continually blessed that this passion has allowed me to meet and work with so many amazing people, like Evie. ⁣

If you’re interested in working with me during pregnancy and postpartum, I am taking new clients both online and in person. Send me a message if you have questions or want to chat more. ⁣

Strong Mom to Be is a strength and conditioning class specifically for pregnant people. ⁣

Here’s a sneak peak at what class looks like:⁣

🤰🏽Each class starts by checking in with how everyone is feeling. ⁣
🤰🏻We then move onto some diaphragmatic breathing and core breathing in positions you may labor and give birth in. ⁣
🤰🏼Next we move onto mobility and gentle movement again to practice movements you may use during labor and in your postpartum recovery. ⁣
🤰🏽From there we move onto some glute and core work.⁣
🤰🏿Next we head down to the weights and do some full body strength sets. ⁣
🤰After that we get into conditioning or cardio. ⁣
🤰🏻We finish the movement portion of each class with some stretching, relaxation and learning how to let go of tension in the pelvic floor in different birth positions. ⁣
🤰🏾The last 10-15 minutes of class is for education/discussion around a different topic. This could include things like meditation, postpartum recovery, what the pelvic floor is, controlling your environment for labor and birth- truly whatever the group has questions about and will benefit them during this time. ⁣

You will be challenged physically and mentally during class but you will also be encouraged to do it in a way that works for you on that day and that will leave you feeling energized. ⁣

Join us Tuesday nights at 6:30pm at . The next session starts this week. ⁣

It never ceases to amaze me how much our bodies change throughout our lives but especially during pregnancy and postpartum. ⁣

The last time I got my bike fitted was when I bought it, before having kids. Needless to say, my body is not the same now as it was then. ⁣

So, today I spent some time with Eric , who is amazing by the way, and we made some big changes to my bike and how it was fitting me.

I got an entirely new saddle because my legs were rubbing on the old one. We also changed the height of the saddle, the position of my bars and the position of my seat, to name a few things. ⁣

These things make a huge difference in how my body feels on my bike now and the power I can generate when pedaling. ⁣

There is no amount of anything that will ever change my anatomy and change the me that I am now back into the me that I was before. And I’m ok with that and am so excited to see what this amazing version of me and my body are capable of. ⁣

A month ago I made the big decision to register for Ironman Canada 2023. This was not an easy decision to make. Training for and competing in any big race/event is a big decision and huge commitment. And as I’ve started putting the puzzle pieces in place to make this goal become a reality, I’ve seen so many parallels to preparing for pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum.⁣

The first parallel - creating a team to support me in this mission.

Read all about the benefits of working with a team during pregnancy and postpartum in my newest blog post. *Link in bio*⁣

Kelsey, and I believe that a team and learning from multiple perspectives is important when you’re preparing for labor, birth and postpartum, which is why we have included guest speakers and birth stories in Birth Prep 2.0.

You get the opportunity to not only learn from us but also a Registered Psychologist, Registered Dietician, Lactation Consultant, Birth Doula, Anesthesiologist and Spinning Babies professional. ⁣

Our next session of Birth Prep 2.0 starts in one week! Click the link in me bio to register and join us. ⁣

Preparing for postpartum, during pregnancy, is rarely talked about and often overlooked. ⁣

If you’re a new mom in Kelowna, this course is for you. ⁣

Join me Mondays at 10:45am for postpartum foundations. ⁣

These two, and the experience I had preparing for labour and birth, are my why for Birth Prep 2.0. ⁣

Here’s a little history for you:⁣
Kelsey and I met on Instagram in May of 2020. I had recently moved to Kingston and was looking to connect with other professionals who work with pre and postnatal people and trying to learn about the services available in the area. (Fun fact, we never actually met in person until the course was ready to launch.)⁣

A few conversations later, Birth Prep 2.0 was in the works.⁣

I wanted to develop a course that provided participants with the information I didn’t get and something that helped to remove the fear surrounding labor and birth and left participants feeling strong and capable. ⁣

Kelsey wanted to develop a course that provided participants with all of the evidence based information she didn’t have time to give them during their prenatal and postpartum visits with her. ⁣

Our first cohort of Birth Prep 2.0 launched at the end of June 2020 and since then we have supported over 100 pregnant people and their partners. ⁣

We are grateful for the people who have trusted us with their prenatal and postpartum education and can’t wait to welcome more pregnant people to the next session that starts in a few weeks! ⁣

09/17/2022

You hear the phrase get back on track all the time.

Trainers will use it to help you “get back on track” if you work with them or buy their program.

Challenges promise to help you “stay on track”.

People often say they need to “get back on track” when life or routines change.

But what if you don’t need to get BACK on track?

What if the track you’re on is exactly where you’re supposed to be, given what’s going on in your life right now?

We can’t live life at 110% all the time. Nor can we give 110% to every part of our lives. It’s just not realistic.

Life ebbs and flows, or happens in chapters or seasons and each chapter/season has different demands.

What if instead of shaming yourself for adapting to the changes life has brought on, or striving to make your life work in a particular way that just isn’t happening or realistic right now- kind of like trying to fit a square peg into a circular hole analogy- you embraced what it is you need now?

What if you leaned into what it is this chapter looks like and adapted for the demands of right now- without expectation or judgement?

Maybe striving to get back on track is serving you but maybe it’s not and you’ll never know if you don’t stop and ask yourself what it is you need now. Or stop and take a breath and think if your actions and expectations are serving you and in line with the chapter/season you’re in now.

And if you do this, you might find that the track you’re currently on is the right track for you right now.

The first ever Social Sweat is this Sunday, May 15, at 1pm at Health in Focus East!⁣ .ygk

Come solo or bring your partner and/or your littles to this sweaty 45 min strength and conditioning class. Variations will be available so you can get the workout you need, no matter where you are at in your journey. After class we’ll head over to for refreshments. ⁣

This class is free for all members and 1:1 clients and $12 for everyone else. Click the link in my bio to sign up. ⁣

Space is limited, but if 1 class fills I will happily add another one. ⁣

Motherhood is anything but predictable. ⁣

Even the most well thought out plans can go wayside. ⁣

Take today. Everly and I were going to catch the train and get to the airport with plenty of time to catch our flight to London. But in a turn of events our train was delayed, and delayed again, and yet again, until it was scheduled to depart 2 hours later. And this would leave us crunched for time and potentially miss our flight. ⁣

So we pivoted and made the drive into Toronto. And now we sit, with time to spare ready to board our plane. ⁣

Pivoting, shifting plans, adjusting and adapting are huge in motherhood. It happens all the time, especially in those first few years. ⁣

And this is one of the many reasons I love the Stronger Together Membership. You get live classes for accountability but when life happens and you have to pivot or shift, you have access to the on demand library so you can push play whenever you want for as long as you want. ⁣

No stressing that your little’s nap times have changed or that you have to clean up a blow out on the way out the door or that you have to pack all the things in the diaper bag. ⁣

You get all the benefits of sweating and moving your body in a way that works for you and your life. ⁣

And it just so happens the Stronger Together Membership is on sale right now. Use code Strong4Summer to try out the membership and do fitness on your terms during pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. Link in bio. ⁣

Packing to move means purging and going through boxes of stuff that have survived many moves. ⁣

I was digging through a box yesterday and came across my teaching portfolio- this arts and crafts type project they made us finish at the end of our teaching degree to take on interviews to show potential employers all the amazing things we’ve done, what our teaching philosophies are and who we are as people. ⁣

This definition was on the cover. ⁣

I made that portfolio over 15 years ago, and still to this day, this is my teaching philosophy, just substitute coach for teacher.⁣

I am not an expert. I am not a guru. I am not the boss. ⁣

I am a guide. ⁣
A motivator. ⁣
A supporter. ⁣
A teacher. ⁣
A coach. ⁣

And together we can work towards your fitness goals during pregnancy, postpartum and beyond.⁣

If this is the kind of support you’re looking for during these incredible chapters, send me a message and let’s chat. ⁣

What do you think of this definition of a teacher and coach? I’d love to know your thoughts.⁣

Time is flying, isn’t it? Or maybe it’s just me. ⁣

In exactly 2 months we will be moving across the country and making a new home for ourselves in Kelowna. ⁣

Before we make that move though, it’s regularly scheduled programming around here. ⁣

🎉Online classes are still running 5x a week.⁣

🎉In person classes are running most Sundays at Health in Focus East. Stay tuned to my stories for when classes are running.⁣

🎉In person training is on Tuesday in Kingston. I have room for one more person at 11am. Send me a message to claim it. ⁣

🎉In person training is on Friday in Belleville. The last six week session starts May 13. Check out their website to register. ⁣

🎉 I’m planning 2 social sweats, one for May and one for June. Bring your partner and your littles or come solo. We’ll sweat and then head over to Fine Balance for refreshments. More details coming your way soon.⁣

🎉The Stronger Together Membership is on sale for a limited time. Use code Strong4Summer to take advantage. ⁣

I’m looking forward to making the most of the time we have left in Kingston and sweating with all of you. ⁣

It’s often advised that everyone should see a pelvic health physiotherapist after giving birth. ⁣

Or that you shouldn’t leak p*e when you’re exercising or sneezing or coughing. ⁣

Or that you should or shouldn’t __________. Let’s be honest- when it comes to pregnancy, postpartum, motherhood, everyone has an opinion. ⁣

But you know what? Your opinion is the one that matters the most. ⁣

That’s it. That’s the message.⁣

If you’re leaking and it doesn’t bother you, you do you. ⁣

If you don’t want to see a pelvic health physiotherapist- don’t. ⁣

You know what is best and right for you.⁣
You get to decide what you want to do, what symptoms you choose to seek support for, when you want to get help and who you work with.⁣

My job is to provide you with all of the information you need to make the best decision for you, in that moment. And then to support you in that decision as you move forward towards your goals- with zero judgement for the decisions that you make.⁣

You don’t need to seek treatment for every symptom and you can also change your mind whenever you’d like.⁣
It’s your body.⁣
It’s your journey.⁣
And I’d love to support you as you do fitness on your terms.⁣

If this sounds like the support you’d like during your postpartum return to fitness, I have 1 more in person spot available on Tuesdays at Health in Focus east. Send me a message to claim it. ⁣

I was terrified to give birth. I took the traditional birth prep courses and I was still terrified. ⁣

Nobody addressed how my fear could impact my body and my experience. Nobody talked about how to overcome or work through the fears I had. ⁣

It’s normal to be scared and worried, especially if this is your first time giving birth. There are so many unknowns and uncontrollables. ⁣

But, knowledge and education truly are power when it comes to preparing for labor and birth and and I want to provide you with as much as we can to help you feel empowered throughout your pregnancy, during labor, as you give birth and when you recover postpartum. ⁣

So you can confidently say- ⁣
I’ve got this! And I can do this!⁣

Our next session of Birth Prep 2.0 starts in 1 week. Join us for this 4 week, online, comprehensive birth prep course. Link in bio to register. ⁣
