‘During my first pregnancy I had crippling back pain and gained 40 pounds. After I had the baby, I was still 25 pounds overweight and extremely out of shape from months of minimal exercise. Jaime was my postpartum fitness trainer starting about 8 weeks after the birth. Through thoughtful exercise design, nutrition planning and life coaching, Jaime helped me remove my mental and physical obstacles. I lost weight, improved my strength, and regained my confidence. My training days were highlights of maternity leave and I only wish Jaime lived closer so I could still see her!!” C.R.
“While recovering from childbirth, I soon got bored of long walks but was not ready to go back to CrossFit. Jaime Designed 5 workouts I could do at home or on walks/at the park with my baby in the stroller. They were easy to follow and she included links to demonstrations of movements. Jaime’s workouts really helped me start to get back into CrossFit style movements very gently. I really liked that I could do the workouts in my house or backyard too, and that I could get a good workout in with only 30 minutes while the baby was napping. During most of my maternity leave, it was really difficult to get out to the gym or be able to meet a specific class schedule, so being able to get a good sweat in at home was incredibly valuable. Working out is so important for your mental health postpartum, and I think it can be frustrating to get it in and know what to do without guidance from someone with Jaime’s professional and personal experience!” S.M.
