I hear the same story from women all over the globe. “There isn’t much available to women who have done the pelvic floor rehab. It’s rather all or nothing and I want both”
Amanda, a CrossFit Athlete with a passion for heavy lifting and training at her max, wanted to get back into the heavy sweaty stuff following the birth of her third baby.
She had worked with a pelvic floor physiotherapist who had told her she needed to stop working at a high capacity thanks to her bladder prolapse which flared and peeing her pants with every move.
There was one slight problem.
Amanda didn’t want to give up on herself or her body. So she continued her work with a pelvic floor physiotherapist and by chance, found me on Facebook through a friend.
Let’s face it, you’re done with feeling broken and batters because of your pelvic health symptoms like peeing yourself on and off the gym floor or feeling like something is falling out.
It feels uncomfortable. You feel it and it keeps getting in the way of reaching your fitness goals.
It makes you anxious with every move, making you wonder if it’s going to get worse.
It makes it hard to enjoy being active with your family. You miss out on running around with your kiddos on a summer day. And it sucks to miss out!
Regardless of your age or stage in life, it’s never too late to bring awareness to your body and take care of your pelvic floor.
I’m all about taking care of you and meeting you where you’re at. You will learn strategies to heal and to thrive in your athleticism. 3 years ago, only 12-weeks postpartum with my second baby, I was diagnosed with a pelvic organ prolapse of my bladder and urethra.
I had some incontinence during my workouts before pregnancy, but never imagined it was related to my pelvic floor.
I had no one to turn to for help. So I became that person.
Through rehab, courses, and working closely with pelvic floor physiotherapists, I became comfortable to begin training at a higher capacity. I had to put my training plans on hold, temporarily.
After a surprise pregnancy, unplanned c-section and a round of rehab that took 4-months, I signed up for CrossFit. No leaks, no sagging, no symptoms. Yes, there is life beyond pelvic floor dysfunctions like incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. I get it.
Being a mom of 3 three makes life tricky. But you can reach your goals in less time than you think.
You don’t have to be stuck lifting less than 15 pounds (um ok. I have a 30-pound toddler and a 20-pound baby. How is that going to work?)
You don’t have to stick to “pelvic floor safe” fitness programs (Oh, cause that’s fun. Squat with 10-pound dumbbells, anyone?)
You don’t have to feel stuck in a program you don’t find enjoyable. If you want to get back into Crossfit, boot camps, or jazzersize, we will make it happen.
I bridge the gap between pelvic floor rehab and fitness so you can have both.
You don’t have to give up on your lifting, running, or any other sport that presents symptoms.
And you certainly CAN lift heavier than 10 pounds, run, and be the athlete you want to be.
Make Strength Training a Priority
The focus here is on building strength strategically while incorporating your pelvic floor. The only way to build a pelvic floor that can handle high-impact training is to build a pelvic floor to handle high-impact.
You’re Going To Train Compound Lifts
You are going to learn to lift in a whole new way. Smarter. Combining breathing, alignment strategies, and lifting to take the pressure off your pelvic floor allowing it to move optimally. In traditional strength training, you are often coached to hold your breath during maximal lifts, which doesn’t allow movement, which can exacerbate your symptoms.
You Are Going To Train Your Entire Body
You’re busy, I get it. So your workouts are going to be 30-40 minutes 3x + weekly, and they can be done at home or in the gym.

You will retrain your core and pelvic floor to properly flatten your “mummy tummy” and restore your pelvic floor to function optimally. This will only take about ten minutes a day.
