The postnatal program with a cult following in NYC can now be accessed from anywhere in the world. In these videos, Founder Rachel Welch will guide you through three doctor-recommended phases, from healing your new-mom (or not-so-new-mom) body to getting you into the best shape of your life. Roll out your mat. From early post partum to active athlete, we’ve got you.
Phase Two is Revolution Motherhood’s secret sauce. Unlike anything else in the postnatal fitness world, Phase Two is the bridge you need to move beyond subtle, internal work into training for higher-intensity workouts. Through increasing intensity, learn how to integrate your deep core awareness into strength and stamina challenges. Planks, sit ups and push ups begin to enter your workouts - all taught so that you can navigate your body's personal needs and injury modifications.
All the workouts in Phase 2 are sorted into challenge levels : Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
Healing + fitness are personal, so this Phase is specifically designed to continue guiding your step by step in your fitness journey, while giving you space to pace yourself. Begin with Challenge Level 1 and work your way through Levels 2 + 3. Remember that your recovery is never linear and that you may find yourself wanting to circle back to Phase 1 or move between challenge levels in Phase 2. The point is to enjoy establishing your fitness lifestyle and to begin to choose workouts that meet your body, mind and mom-life needs daily.
As you begin Phase 2, we deepen the exploration of your upper body anatomy, pacing your integration of upper body strength with shoulder releasing rotations. Explore your balance with standing glutes and arm toning with the band.
This workout bridges you from deep, 3-dimensional breathing into learning how to use a breath to recruit sustained strength. Revisiting the concept of intra-abdominal pressure with the band, this sequence trains you for effective, core - based, cardio workouts.
Isometric arm toning builds layered strength in your upper body integrated with your core and trunk muscles. This is an exceptional strength building sequence as you transition from Phase 1 to 2.

Re-calibrating intra-abdominal pressure is key to establishing full spectrum strength in your trunk. Using the soft pilates ball, we'll take you from the inside, breath based core activation into external ab challenges.
