What are our running clients saying about return to running program?
"I highly recommend MamasteFit Postpartum Running Program. As a physical therapist, former marathon runner, and a mother to two (2.5 years, 3 months), I knew I needed a specialized program if I was going to be successful. I stopped running when I was 20 weeks pregnant with my first due to mild pregnancy complications, which re-occurred with my second pregnancy. That means my running sneakers were collecting dust for a good 3 years. The postpartum time is like a blank slate, the perfect opportunity to re-build your body. This program emphasizes dynamic core stability, pelvic floor function, and hip strength. It slowly adds in heavier weights and plyometrics. The exercises are functional, occurring in all planes of movement (like motherhood), with an emphasis on breath and postural awareness. There are so many muscular imbalances present in the postpartum period, which this program identifies and addresses. The workouts can be done with or without "help" (toddler at your feet, baby wearing, etc) which makes completion so much more realistic. Little by little, I intend to return to a marathon. Honestly, I feel like my body might be better prepared this time around thanks to MamasteFit."
