FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have to be familiar with CrossFit to participate?
Heck no! In fact, this training is perfect no matter your athletic background. The movements you will be taught in your training are all functional movements. You may find many look similar to CrossFit because CrossFit itself is Functional Fitness but that is it.
What if I have no fitness background?
Not a problem. In fact, I would argue it is even more important and appropriate for you to introduce this form of training into your routine than any other. You may however want to look into the one-on-one options to get a better tailored training program so you learn to get familiar and confident in some of the movements. My goal is to prepare you for the birth experience you want. The fitter and more prepared you are, the more positive that experience will be.
Do I have to be pregnant or postpartum to participate?
Again, heck no! Everything I present in my training is fundamental to building a solid foundation and core. Certain movements will quickly highlight any dysfunction you may have as an athlete. If you have hit a plateau in your training, if you need a reset or are maybe rehabbing an injury, this program is perfect for you too. And remember Postpartum is forever!! So your kiddos may be in high school but that doesn’t mean this isn’t for you! If you are still not sure, set up a consult with me to discuss. I’d love to chat. If I am not the right person to help you, then I can help you find the one!
I pee my pants every time I jumprope, box jump, run or squat. Can this program help?
While I can't promise I can fix this problem, I can promise you that it is fixable. Incontinence, along with other pelvic floor dysfunction, Diastasis Rectus Abdominus and pelvic pain are all extremely common with women who have been pregnant but not necessarily limited to mothers. And while common, these symptoms should not be accepted as the new normal once you become a mother. They are in fact SYMPTOMS of dysfunction in the pelvic floor and can be addressed through proper strengthening of the core, breathing techniques and learning to "brace" through movements. Through my network of birth professionals, I will help you find the right individual (i.e. Pelvic Floor PT or other specialist) that can truly diagnose your issue and help monitor your progress as we work to heal and correct those issues.
