Choosing the right personal trainer is critical to ensure you achieve results in the safest way possible. You want someone who has education & experience carrying a baby for 9 months and has also achieved optimal results post baby to shed those postpartum pounds.
Finally, I am also a pregnant yoga instructor so you can be assured that I have the expertise and knowledge to train pregnant & postpartum moms safely.
Let’s work together to design a training program just for you to achieve your fitness goals and make you a Strong Mom.
STRONG MOM™ PRE-BABY TRAINING
If you’ve started thinking about planning to make a baby within the next year, or even few months and want to get into shape or want to get your nutrition on track to ensure a healthy foundation to grow a healthy baby, you’ve come to the right place. Giving your baby the best start in life is so much more than taking a prenatal supplement. Both mom (and dad) need to be fortified with good nutrition to build a child on a fully nourished foundation. After all, if we don’t build our bodies before conception, we are choosing to build a baby that will require more work after birth to achieve full health. Whether its weight loss, or strengthening and toning, together we will support you to optimize your health for conception and reproductive health and fertility through fitness and nutrition, and build a strong body to withstand and ward off pregnancy aches and pains, and common ailments.
STRONG MOM™ FIT-TO-BIRTH TRAINING
Having a safe exercise program is important, as it will help you stay strong as you and your baby progress through the trimesters. Together we will work to increase your stamina, muscle tone and strength to reduce pregnancy related aches and pains, and help strengthen the pelvic floor for labour and delivery, as well as increase your pelvic floor and core muscles for optimal postpartum recovery.
Together we can help minimize and even prevent common pregnancy issues including but not limited to:
STRONG MOM™ BODY AFTER BABY TRAINING
In 9 months you grew a baby and birthed your baby. Your female body is incredible! Add to that all that the female body goes through during labor, and you have become a bona-fide superhero!
Having a baby doesn’t mean that your body will never look the same; maybe it will, and maybe it has changed entirely. But in order for you to bounce back after months of extreme change, the most important thing you can do is heal, repair and strengthen the core and pelvic floor muscles. Yeah you might want to get back into exercise right away and start doing sit-ups and crunches to tone that tummy, that’s the worst thing you can do. (seriously, don’t do crunches) What we will start with is corrective exercises to heal you from the inside out, build stability, strength, and muscle endurance, tackle mummy tummy (aka diastasis recti abdominus) mum bum, incontinence and back pain.
Getting you pre-pregnancy body back (or shaping yourself a new body) doesn’t have to involve gruelling workouts and strict diets. In fact, if you’re a new mom, that’s the opposite of what you want. Together we can formulate a fitness program, and nutrient dense nutrition plan to get you back on track to heal, repair and strengthen your muscles so you can get back to training like never before!

Hiring Denise was one of the best investment decisions I’ve ever made. She promotes the concept of Strong Mom and that is exactly what she delivers. 2 months postpartum I was weak and defeated and now with a 5.5 month old, I feel stronger than ever. Invest in yourself, hire Denise and you and your family will reap the benefits. Mehrnaz
Denise has helped heal my separated abs (mummy tummy / diastasis recti) but her positive attitude and genuine care has helped me heal mentally as well. Because Denise is also a mom she really does understand how I’m feeling and what I’m going through. She’s extremely knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition and fitness and always gives me great recipe ideas! Lori-Ann
Denise has great workouts and makes me feel re-energized . I’m actually making this time for myself a permanent thing. I feel stronger and slimmer too. She always has a way of making me feel like I’m catching up with an old girl friend. This quality connection puts her above other trainers.Libby
