Get Stroller Strong this Summer!
Thursday: Starting May 30, 9-10am (6 Weeks)
Tuesday: Starting June 11, 9-10am (6 Weeks)
Stroller Strong is a low-impact postnatal exercise/walking class designed by Sarah to be safe for moms from 6weeks pp. and generally aimed at <6mths postpartum. Although ALL moms are welcome if little one is willing to stay safely in their stroller! We meet at Enchanted Woods and enjoy our time outside if the weather is good. If the weather is poor we meet at Grant Harvey Centre. The class will include a warm up, walk, postnatal safe exercises including work on our core and posture, finishing with a cool down/gentle stretch. The class is first thing to try and avoid the heat of the day for both mom and baby. I recommend an outdoor stroller with a wrist safety strap, brake and also a bug net for summer months.

Specialist Postnatal Personal Training for Women with Abdominal Separation or Pelvic Dysfunction.
Following Claire Mockridge’s holistic programs Sarah works with women to empower them with more knowledge and provide a different approach towards, hopefully, improving their symptoms. These programs embrace a very different approach involving lifestyle changes and homework (as well as what we learn during sessions) therefore private PT sessions with Sarah are either monthly or bi-monthly. There are no un-realistic and promised quick fixes, therefore after an initial conversation/meeting Sarah works with her clients over a 6 month timeframe.
The BREATHE Principle™ is a 7 Step Program for fixing diastasis recti. This is a NEW full-body approach to fixing abdominal separation. We’re going north of the navel and south of the pubis here! In fact, as a Diastasis Detective I'll be helping clients in… Solving the Mystery Of Fixing Abdominal Separation!
Your Pelvic Matters™ is a step-by-step exercise and educational approach to Fixing pelvic floor problems. This is a NEW full-body approach to women’s health, function and fertility. Gone are the days when we should solely focus on the pelvic muscles in an effort to heal, nurture and fix dysfunction. We’re going north of the navel and south of the pubis here! And, we’re educating you to help you understand why things aren’t functioning optimally.
A course of 5 x 60 minute Your Pelvic Matters or Diastasis Detective Personal Training Sessions with Sarah is $350 (or $80 per/hour) You will be offered a FREE 30 minute consultation with Sarah, to discuss your concerns and aims, and suitability for PT. (A waiver will be required for this appointment)
You. Our PRIORITY.
Screening/Waiver: All of Sarah's clients will be required to be at least 6 weeks post-birth (8-10 weeks post c-section), cleared by their GP to safely begin an exercise programme, and required to fill in a comprehensive physical activity readiness questionnaire PAR-Q/Waiver. Pregnant clients must have GP/Midwife/OB approval and also complete the ePAR med-x.
The purpose of the 6 week GP check is often misunderstood; it means you can return to exercise, but correctly (i.e. safely and slowly)! Some of Sarah's clients were unaware that they were living with prolapse or abdominal separation post-birth and have now received the medical treatment they deserve owing to what they have learned in class.
Please note: it is recommended that you do not run with infants (even in specific, shock-absorbing jogging strollers) until around 8 months due to their lack of neck-strength. Current research also indicates that it is advisable not to return to high-impact exercise until 6 months post-birth, irrespective of delivery type. It is recommended that all strollers have a wrist safety strap fitted if not provided by the manufacturer. Stroller Strong class is usually based outside in Odell when the weather is good and a stroller with large wheels and suspension is recommended. I also recommend a bug net for the stroller for your stroller in the summer months.
