4. Returning To Running and More After Baby
Returning to your regular activities after having a baby can be a bit daunting – and in many cases, women are eager to return to their sports before their bodies have fully recovered, which makes them prone to injuries. We help women achieve the strength and alignment they need during this critical time to safely return to the regular activities they enjoy.
Are you eager to return to your running regimen, HIIT workouts, or crossfiit after having your baby but aren’t quite sure if you are ready?
Do you want to be sure that your pelvic floor, abdominals and glutes pass the tests for high impact?
Have you started your fitness routine already… but are experiencing any of the 3 P’s (pain, pressure or peeing)? This IS very common but is NOT normal!
If you answered yes to any of these questions, our workshop is for you. We will help you evaluate your current status and understand what you need to do and know to avoid the 3 P’s and safely return to run and/or high-intensity workouts after baby.
