Meet Your Coach
I'm Martine, your prenatal and postnatal fitness coach.
I'm a certified kinesiologist specialized in prenatal and postnatal fitness, with a passion in supporting womxn along their motherhood journeys, whether trying to conceive, pregnant or postpartum. I'm also a mother to 3 children under the age of 5.
I believe exercise to not only be a physical movement, but an emotional one as well, meant to help us connect with ourselves and our community. Every womxn's journey is unique and different and our services reflect these exact needs.
I help womxn of all fitness levels continue to move in ways that feel good during pregnancy in order to prepare for birth. During the postpartum journey and motherhood, I guide and support the return to exercise while considering all physical and mental aspects. I can help you manage symptoms present during exercise, strengthen your core and pelvic floor, and get you on your way to achieving your goals, whatever these may be.
I also have a passion for advocating access to the education and resources we deserve in order for us to make educated choices and feel empowered as womxn and mothers.

Frequently asked questions
Can I join if I was cleared for exercise at my 6-week check-up?
Great question! This HIIT class (high intensity interval training) will have some impact exercises as well as advanced strengthening exercises. This is appropriate for people who've already rested, recovered, rehabed and retrained their WHOLE body. Therefore this is not an introduction to postpartum exercise. Research states that people who've given birth should wait 3-6 months postpartum before returning to impact and this is with some pelvic floor and core education as well as a strength program. If returning to impact is something you're interested in, send me an email HERE, I'd love to help you out!
How long are the workouts?
This class is 30-minutes. It is meant to allow you to hit pause, and move your body in a realistic time frame!
What equipment do I need?
Suggested equipment that may be used during the workouts are:
I haven’t done exercises in years, can I still join?
Thank you for showing up Mama! This class is appropriate for people who've already returned to exercise and are looking to further challenge their bodies through movement! If you are new to exercise, I'd suggest the MAMA - Core & Strength Body
