Here's how we'll get there...

I'm going to meet you where you are.

What does that mean?

It means it doesn't matter what clothes you're wearing, what brand of shoes you have, if you're hair is fixed, or if you look like you fit in at the most popular gym in town. 

We're not here for them... we're here for YOU. 

It's hard to fit in to a predisposed package that's one size fits all or step into a turnkey solution that's got all the right answers already figured out for you... that's not how this works. 

With the app, you become the expert through a customized plan that you and I create together as our very first step.

YOU are the secret to making this work. 

We're not going to be doing any body style tests, I'm not going to tell you what you can and can't eat, and call me crazy but I'm going to tell you to ditch your scale. 

I want to invest my time in you to find out what matters most, what your goals are, and what we can make happen together.

You're not in this alone. Becoming an expert in the app is accomplished with not just me by your side but the You First community. 

Welcome, we've been waiting to meet you.

Just For You, Mama

Whether you just had your first miracle, you're three years postpartum, or just had your fourth - this is the right plan for you! Pregnancy takes a toll on our core, which includes - but is not limited to-  the pelvic floor muscles, transversus abdominis, multifidus, internal and external obliques, rectus abdominis, erector spinae - I'll spare you the whole list but the gist is this it's your whole damn back, butt and abs. That's a lot more than some situps and crunches will conquer (and also situps and crunches will make diastasis recti worse).

 Whether you've got diastasis recti or are looking for a gentle way to get back to working out and rebuild your core strength and stability, this 12 week plan is designed to do just that. Your workouts will always be time effective because let's face it, time is of the essence, mama! We'll retrain your core through abdominal strength, low back support and bodyweight exercises. Slowly we'll build strength adding in some dumbbell exercises and get your heartrate going! 

  • 12 weeks of core building workouts
  • Helpful tips for breastfeeding moms
  • Support and encouragement from one mom to another (because this shit is hard)
  • You'll have access to your plan for six months... I get it, I really do!

At 33, I knew it was time to get serious about taking care of myself. I had avoided it for far too long and to be honest, the first few months, I avoided the workouts and eating more thoughtfully. After my extended case of denial, I used the program and am a firm believer in the product. The most interesting part for me is that Melissa and I don’t live in the same state, and yet, she is still a constant source of support throughout my week. She checks in on me, answers ALL of my questions promptly and sets me straight when I need it most.

The You First Fitness App is a total game changer for my workout. I typically get bored with workout routines: they are either too long or too repetitive. At less than 30 minutes per workout and three new workouts per week the app is quick and effective and never boring. I honestly cannot praise You First enough and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an effective, always accessible way to get in shape.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought I would want a fitness mat or buy a little red dress. Thank you so much for pushing me to do this. My day to day choices are so much better.
