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 pregnant and postpartum people on their journeys to parenthood. I'm also a mother to 3 children under the age of 7.
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.
