We are both moms and athletes. Having been through the transition of pregnancy and postpartum ourselves, we know there is a huge need when it comes to both education and quality fitness opportunities for moms in Santa Cruz. We want to provide a space where moms can exercise safely and effectively without judgement and with respect for the transformation they are going through. This includes women who are trying to conceive, pregnant, newly postpartum or even 20 years postpartum. Our classes meet the needs of all moms throughout all stages coming from all levels of fitness experience. Too often women find themselves unable to workout because they are “too pregnant” or injured because they tried to return to what they did before baby too quickly and without proper guidance. We aim to fix this. In addition to holding classes, we want to increase the knowledge of our personal trainer and coach community to provide a better and more knowledgable service to moms in all gyms throughout Santa Cruz County.
