Fitness & Nutrition Coach
Nora is a certified Prenatal and Postnatal Personal Trainer at Max Kane Health & Fitness who’s mission is to help women regain their fitness through this postpartum through this program.
Nora is no stranger to Motherhood and postpartum recovery. She has had two pregnancies, with one living son. She is a strong and healthy role model for her son!
What is a typical class like?
The 60-minute class. We will have a warm up, strength movements, and a conditioning workout. The coach starts
with guided breathing and pelvic floor
work. Next, the coach will teach movements for
the strength movements and workout. Once the class is warmed up and taught the movements, the
training will begin.
What if I am unable to do all the movements?
Not possible! Every movement has multiple modification
options to accommodate every ability level, injury,
or limitation. The number one priority is safety,
followed by making sure everyone is comfortable
and having fun!
Sometimes I am exhausted. Is the class hard?
This program is designed as a gentle return to
fitness after giving birth (vaginal or C-Section). It
begins with a lot of attention to pelvic floor healing,
learning your new diaphragm, and building
foundational posture and functional movement
patterns. The intensity of the class slowly
progresses as you get stronger and feel more
confident in the movements. Even if you are tired,
come! Enjoy getting out of the house and sharing
your experiences with the other moms.
What if I have no fitness experience?
No problem! The program is designed for a gentle
return to fitness. Whether you have experience or
not, all movements can be modified to meet you
where you are at.
What are the benefits of this program?
Surprisingly, the social and peer support benefits
outweigh the fitness benefits. Picture yourself in a
loving family of moms all going through the same
challenges and milestones. The workout is a bonus!
What if my baby is fussy, hungry, or needs
Babies poop! Feel free to pause at any moment and
tend to your baby. You will have a mat in your
space and your baby will always remain beside
you. Feed them, change them, and soothe them.
You will always have an opportunity to include
your baby in the workout if they are having a fussy
day. Even colicky babies love the music and ceiling
fans – it is white noise gold!
What should I bring?
A water bottle, comfortable gym clothes, and
indoor shoes. Feel free to bring your baby in their
bucket seat/stroller. Some moms bring bouncy
seats, sit-up seats, or exersaucers.
What happens after 6 weeks?
The 12-week B&B program will naturally phase into
being ready to continue training at Max Kane. The first 6 weeks are spent focusing
on healing and gently returning to fitness. Continuing to train, we will focus less on the
pelvic floor and more on developing the
movements and skills learned in B&B. This also
allows our gym to welcome a new group of
postpartum moms every 6 weeks.
Can I bring my older child to the program?
For safety reasons, we have a strict No Toddler
rule. Our program welcomes babies 0-18 months
old so mothers can enjoy the program without having to worry about their toddlers getting into mischief. However,
arrangements can be made with the coach to have
your school-age child sit beside you during a class
(e.g. school Holiday).
