What are our prenatal fitness clients saying about our programming?
"Gina and the MamasteFit programming changed my life and empowered me to bring my beautiful & strong baby girl into this world on my own terms. Her prenatal workout routine allowed me to feel like myself in my ever-changing body, and guaranteed I felt incredibly strong and informed as my baby, and belly, grew and grew... I cannot stress enough the wealth of information and compassion that this woman and her gym can provide to moms of all sorts. My birth was able to be all natural and exactly as I had hoped. I am 2 weeks postpartum now and I look and feel better than I ever thought possible! 10/10 recommend this incredible resource!!!"
"[Gina's] expert fitness coaching at MamasteFit throughout my second and third trimesters made me feel tremendously strong and ready for labor when it came. This training also helped me keep my weight and blood sugar under control when I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I’m convinced my third trimester would have been far more uncomfortable without her strength training. I felt very balanced, and my baby was in an optimal position when my labor started spontaneously at week 39."

Hi, I’m Gina!
I'm the head coach at MamasteFit, with my masters in exercise science. I've been exclusively training prenatal and postpartum women for the past several years, and have spent the time refining our fitness programs!
Both our prenatal and postpartum return to fitness and return to running program have been done by me personally! This has allowed me to refine our programming over the course of 3+ years, by both my own experimentation and feedback from my fitness clients.

What are our clients saying about our prenatal fitness programming?
"I’m so so thankful for the approach and reminder in ever single workout to do what feels right. It’s part of my own journey, but I feel refreshed to have a natural focus on function of my body and my health, rather than all the other messages I’ve heard and listened to in other fitness programming. It actually feels life changing and healing."
"Just did my first prenatal workout and man was that a burner. Got me sweating and heart rate going. Most I have done in awhile. I feel great! Wish I would have started this when I found out I was pregnant and not 13 weeks in."
