From August 8th - August 17th, feel a revived sense of strength and capability in your body with a DOABLE exercise routine for anyone limited on time and energy.
With the Summer Strength Challenge, You'll Complete 5 WHOLE BODY Strength Building Workouts in 10 Days - Specifically Designed for Pregnancy, Postpartum, and Parents.
YES - pregnancy, postpartum, and parenthood are SO challenging. Full stop. And, it means that your care IS essential, too. YOU MATTER in all of this.
I’m Jessie Mundell!
Your fitness, body image, and pelvic health guides – and the start of your support system here in the Summer Strength Challenge.
I am a Registered Kinesiologist and have a handful of degrees that have helped to make me a specialist in prenatal and postnatal exercise, and I’ve helped thousands of parents receive the fitness TLC they deserve.
I am focused on effective exercise during pregnancy and postpartum, rehab of the core and pelvic floor, postpartum and C-section recovery, teaching people how to exercise in a way that feels truly good, and helping folks feel capable in their bodies.
I am here to help you HEAL AND THRIVE in your body as it goes through immense changes and you move into a new season. Not shrink you, your joy, or the space you take up.
There will be NO before / after photos. No guilt for missing a workout. ZERO weigh-ins or weight goals.
You've spent enough time THINKING about getting started. You've done the Googling, saving every random workout you see on Instagram. Buying the DIY fitness plan (...that are all stashed in some folder on your computer, never to be opened again).
If you get really honest with yourself you know that you don't need MORE AND MORE options.
You know that you simply need to get STARTED. And, you need a nudge to do so.
That is what the 10-Day Summer Strength Challenge are here for. We start together as a group on Monday, August 8th.
And, I know you might be feeling a bit nervous! Unsure of what you expect, or how you'll fit these workouts into your packed life.
But here's the thing: I want to give you a gentle push you to GO FOR IT. Nothing changes if we don't stretch ourselves, right?
I'm going to be there to support you through it so you're ready to take action on Day 1. I want to see you in there, my friend.
People of all genders (except cis-men) who are in any stage of pregnancy, postpartum, or parenthood. You are DONE with the "all or nothing" mindset approach to exercise, eating, and your body image. You want to approach exercise with flexibility, YET with some structure in place.
You don't want to force yourself into an overly intense workout plan or use exercise to punish yourself. Instead, you want to move your body with that knowing that it helps you to feel your very best - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
TOTALLY GET IT. Same! The workouts take between 20-30 minutes: from set-up, to warmup, to workout completion, and cooldown.
I know your schedule is packed. I want exercise to FIT INTO YOUR LIFE. These workouts do just that.
No problem! The truth is that you likely WILL miss a workout. That's what happens when you're living a full life.
Instead of beating yourself up about it or ghosting the program, I simply want you to get back into the plan as soon as you're able to. No stress - simply get right back to where you left off.
You'll be able to complete these workouts with minimal exercise equipment from home or the gym! You'll want 1-2 resistance bands (lighter and heavier resistance), 1-2 mini bands (or hip cirles), and 2-3 sets of dumbbells (10-30 pounds, depending on your lifting experience).
ABSOLUTELY! Let's get you into the program now.
The beauty of how our strength based workouts are designed is that they are INTENTIONALLY designed for how a pregnant body changes throughout the trimesters. That means, you'll find a workout plan that supports a growing, shifting body and understands what it needs to feel supported, reduce the aches, and prepare for postpartum.
You bet! As long as you've had medical clearance from your doctor or birth provider, you can get started into the plan.
The workouts will smartly progress you over time from healing and recovery, into building strength, endurance, and improved core and pelvic floor function.
Many of our hundreds of clients are currently managing and various core and pelvic floor variations!
And while the experience is different for everyone, the goal is always for our folks to be able to strength train and challenge themselves optimally, without ramping up, or worsening symptoms.
The beauty of the SSC is that we can have constant communication in the private Facebook coaching group to modify for your body and needs, too. We will offer you coaching to help you navigate any core or pelvic floor symptoms or concerns!
While there is absolutely no commitment to continue on after your 10 days are complete, I will be extending you an invitation to continue on with us in our To Pregnancy and Beyond online fitness coaching program.
TPAB has been our long-time running (7+) years online fitness coaching program for pregnancy, postpartum, and parents. We've been honoured to work with hundreds of folks during this time. Some of our members have been with us since the very beginning, while on average, members stay from 6 months - 1.5 years.
If you enjoy the process during the SSC, we'd love to have you continue your journey with us!
