Whether you’re newly postpartum, an active athlete, or starting a new fitness lifestyle; you’ll get the best and most accurate information about your body, health and fitness so you can create your healthiest, strongest and happiest life.
Phase One is your home base : developed to heal + strength train you from the inside-out.
Rachel uses breath-based core activation to rebalance intra-abdominal pressure, strengthen your pelvic floor, abs, back and rib cage and a soft foam roller to release tension and sooth your nervous system.

This phase addresses all common post natal injuries : diastasis recti, prolapse, incontinence and scar tissue adhesions while training you safely and effectively to recover and re-integrate your core into your daily, functional life.
Repeat this phase as frequently as needed. If you take a break in exercise, dip back into this 28-day series to kickstart your routine and return here regularly to infuse these foundational concepts into your athletic lifestyle.
