Meet Your Coach

Martine Chiasson

I'm a certified kinesiologist specialized in prenatal and postnatal fitness, with a passion in supporting pregnant and postpartum people on their fitness journeys. I'm also a mother to 3 children under the age of 6.

When it comes to the fitness industry, you could say I’m a little bit of a misfit. I don’t coach weight loss, I don’t compare before and after photos or take any body measurements. Instead we have conversations around what it means to move our bodies and how exercise can support your whole being through all of the seasons of life, the good and the hard.

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 (inclusive of bereaved parents) and motherhood, I guide and support the return to exercise while honouring all physical, mental and emotional aspects so that you can return to doing the things you love and feeling a little bit like yourself again!

Breaking it down.

  • Meet at the École Carrefour de l'Acadie Playground (turn right)
  • Wednesdays - 7:30PM-8:15P (via Zoom if the weather doesn't comply)
  • 45-minute sessions
  • Wear comfortable attire that is appropriate for the weather
  • What you need to bring:​
    • Water
    • After workout snack
    • Yoga mat or beach towel

What can I expect?

  • HIIT and Circuit training workouts (higher intensity)

  • Workouts will include impact (or none), bodyweight exercises, and some resistance bands as well as using the environment around us (benches, steps, hills, playground, etc)

  • Every exercise chosen is able to regress or progress therefore it's suitable for all fitness levels (and trimesters if pregnant)

  • Tips and tricks if you have pelvic floor symptoms such as prolapse, diastasis recti, or incontinence

  • A community of folks navigating pregnancy, postpartum and parenthood.

  • Support and guidance throughout the 6-weeks and beyond!

  • So much laughing!
