Jessie is changing our fitness world. A handful of mamas are off to pelvic floor physio, I am making it rain her safe pelvic floor exercises all over class, and I have steered tons of women away from some ‘not-so-safe’ exercises and replaced those with POP/Diastasis appropriate strategies. We are making huge progress in class and with new mom’s and it’s all because of Jessie!

Frequently Asked Questions

You probably have a lot of questions. Here are all the answers.

Is this information useful if I work with moms who have older kids?

Yes! This information is key and necessary when working in fitness for all moms, regardless of the age of children. I always consider postpartum to be forever, not just 3, 6, or 12 months after birth. There are considerations you need to take into account when coaching moms of any stage, including diastasis recti, incontinence, good breathing techniques, pelvic organ prolapse, and more.

I’m not a trainer. Can I take this course?

Absolutely. Anyone looking to gain more in-depth knowledge of postpartum recovery and return to fitness is welcome to take the course. Moms, physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, rehab providers, body workers, barre instructors, yoga teachers – you’re all welcome to join!

How long will this course take to complete?

If you keep up with Modules on a weekly basis, expect to commit 3 hours per week to the material, for 10 weeks. Remember that there is no specific date at which you must complete the exam, so you’re welcome to go at your own pace to learn in the manner that is most effective for you.

What if I miss a live lecture?

You do not need to be on for the guest lecture interviews that are scheduled live during the class. The recordings will be posted for you on the website and emailed out.

Is this certification credited for Continuing Education Credits?

Yes! NASM, CSEP, ACE, and Can-Fit-Pro have awarded continuing education credits for the Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy. If you are certified through a different organization, you will receive a certificate of completion upon successful passing of the final exam, which you can submit to your governing body for review to be awarded continuing education credits. If you need any additional help with this process, Jessie will be happy to give further information.

Is a payment plan available?

Yes! An instalment plan with 3-monthly payments is available for the Self-Study and Masterclass Tracks. Please note that all Canadians using the payment plans MUST pay via Stripe rather than PayPal. 

What can I do with the certification when I complete it?

– Coach a mom immediately after pregnancy confidently
– Understand how to assess and treat diastasis recti
– Know how to modify workouts for a client with pelvic organ prolapse
– Be comfortable progressing a client back to running post-pregnancy
– Know which health professionals to refer out to if mom is presenting some symptoms
– Know how to program effective strength training workouts for moms.
– Being a Certified Postnatal Fitness Specialist will set you apart in the fitness industry with a niched and elite expertise in coaching moms.

When will the Academy open again for registration?

The next class of the Academy will open for registration in Fall 2019.

I still have questions.
