HAVE YOU HEARD THE FOLLOWING FROM YOUR CLIENTS?

“I’ve been doing CrossFit and running for years. Now I don’t know how to modify these activities during pregnancy.

“I thought when I got back to exercising after my baby the leaking would eventually stop. But as I progress, I notice more leaking.

"I’ve tried pelvic physical therapy before, but they gave me basic exercises and I’m looking for more advanced exercises to match my goals in the gym."

“I’m noticing that when I do pull ups and sit ups my belly bulges. How can I still do planks, sit-ups, and pull-ups and not have that bulge? I’ve already tried basic exercises.”
