I often get asked how to include kids in a workout. What kind of things do I do with my own kids to get them involved? What do they DO when I am working out?
There is something about the start of fall that feels like a fresh start. The kids go back to our school and we moms can go back to our (somewhat) normal routine. It’s like having a clean slate to start over and as Personal Trainer, I am a huge fan. I love that so many moms recommit to taking care of themselves again, rather than just looking after their families.
Becoming a mom is like being thrown into a sport that you’ve never trained for. There are so many movements that you’ll repeat over and over again, and over time, these movements can cause injury if they are executed improperly. Sometimes it’s not even a matter of improper execution, but just repeating the movement too much without counter movements.
As a new mom, your body has changed in so many ways. You have just performed a miracle. Over the last year your body has created a new life! It’s important that you give your body time and resources to heal, including optimal nutrition, lots of rest, and slowly starting to add movement back into your daily routine over the first 6 weeks postpartum.
