Meet Your Coach

Martine Chiasson

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 pregnant and postpartum people on their journeys to parenthood. I'm also a mother to 3 children under the age of 8.

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 person's journey is unique and different and the services offered reflect these exact needs.

I help folks 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 honouring all physical, mental and emotional aspects. I can help you manage pelvic floor symptoms present during exercise, strengthen your core and pelvic floor, and get you on your way to achieving your goals, whatever these may be in this season of life.

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 women and mothers.

Breaking it down.

  • 2x 60-minute in-person classes/week (for a total of 12 classes) at The Mama Movement Studio
  • Tuesdays - Thursdays - 11AM-12PM (March 12th to April 18th)
  • Workouts are designed to progressively build a strong foundation - think strength!
  • Small group classes to better support and guide you

  • Talking all about the core & pelvic floor and strategies to help manage symptoms and get you feeling strong
  • Community of folks going through parenthood with whom you can connect
  • Baby friendly (I have a baby room equipped with a crib, rocking chair and sound machine)
  • Can I join even if I’m still in my first trimester?
    Absolutely! Unless there is a medical reason or contraindication, this class is appropriate for all trimesters! Women are usually fatigued or nauseous in the first trimester, but studies show that exercise can alleviate these symptoms, BONUS!
  • Is this safe for 3rd trimester?
    Unless there is a medical contraindication, these workouts are absolutely appropriate for the third trimester. We actually encourage you to be active near the end of pregnancy as it can alleviate some discomfort and achiness often felt by women.
  • What type of exercises will be included in this class?
    Great question! This class is meant to strengthen your whole body, therefore you can expect all types of different exercises such as: body weight, resistance banded exercises, weighted exercises as well as some relaxation poses and mobility work. This class is NOT a HIIT class nor does it have any impact exercises.
  • How long are the workouts?
    Each session will be 60 minutes each. The actual time spent moving will range from 30-40 minutes total.
  • I haven’t done exercises in years, can I still join?"
    YES! As mentionned above, these exercises are appropriate for all levels of fitness. We can modify exercises to meet you where you feel comfortable. The goal of this class is to strengthen your whole body, boost your mood and energy, and have you feeling confidant going into birth.
  • Is this refundable?
    This is non-refundable. I am confident that you will love this class, however, pregnancy is a journey, and we don't control all the variables of our journey. If something should happen, or you are no longer medically cleared to exercise (i.e bleeding, bed rest, loss of amniotic fluid, etc), or you feel uncomfortable moving forward with the class, please send me an email HERE and we can further discuss :)
