You’re probably here because you feel like you have an entirely different body after having a baby.
And you’d love to feel like yourself again.
Feel strong and confident so you can be the fun, active, healthy mom, wife and woman you want to be.
(Yes, not just mom, but woman too. Because you don’t want to lose your sense of self in motherhood, right?)
And you’d probably love to get back into the fitness-y things you enjoyed pre-baby (or even just chase after your kiddo without worrying if your body can handle it).
Hey, I’m Jenna Dalton. Certified Postpartum Fitness & Athleticism Coach and Mom of Two.
After I had my first baby I wasn’t prepared for the postpartum experience I had.
I thought I would bounce back and be doing my usual workouts by 8 weeks postpartum.
But instead, I honestly felt like my body was ruined. I felt so weak. I couldn’t even do a simple squat or hold a plank without feeling like I would fall over or my body would break.
And then I felt so guilty for feeling like my body was ruined. I loved my little girl so much and I was supposed to love my body for creating this little miracle, right?
So I felt ashamed for wishing things were different. Wishing I could have my body back.
This wasn’t how it was supposed to go.
I’d been lifting weights for years, done yoga, running, bootcamp classes, barre, CrossFit, Pilates… I loved fitness. I loved feeling strong. I loved being that woman who worked out. It was a huge part of my identity.
It was my stress-reliever, mood-stabilizer, confidence-booster.
And I was supposed to feel this immense sense of joy in becoming a mom – something I’d always wanted.
But I felt lost and frustrated and I had no idea what to do.
I so badly wanted to feel like myself again. Be able to do the things I loved to do again. Feel strong again.
In prenatal class and postpartum appointments we’re taught how to take care of our babies.
But very few women are shown how to properly take care of themselves.
After deciding that I must have missed something, I did a ton of research, gained four postpartum fitness certifications, and have now worked with dozens of clients who were living with the same frustrations that I had.
I’ve found that most moms struggle because they don’t feel like themselves after having their baby. They feel like their body is so weak and foreign to them. They’re worried that they’ll never feel as good or as strong as they used to.
They thought they would bounce back quickly. They figured, “I worked out pretty regularly before I got pregnant and during my pregnancy so getting my body back should be pretty easy, right?”
They thought that just doing their usual pre-baby workouts or signing up for a Mommy and Me bootcamp class would work.
But then they don’t get the results they were hoping for. Or signs and symptoms creep up – like pain or pressure in their pelvic floor, leaking or feeling like they’ll pee their pants, and a core that feels about as strong as a limp noodle.
They think they just need to push themselves harder or find the right workout.
But really, it’s all about adopting a whole new mindset and key foundational strategies that moms need to know.
Because you’re a mom now. Your body and life is suddenly drastically different.
Doing what you’ve always done isn’t the answer.
It’s time for a new approach.
There’s a huge gap in the postpartum fitness industry.
There’s a lot of “get your body back after baby” programs out there. But postpartum fitness goes so far beyond that (and most fitness programs don’t actually have a mom’s unique postpartum needs in mind).
And the truth is, you can’t just do a bunch of “mom safe” core exercises for a few weeks and then dive back into your pre-baby workouts.
There’s way more to the picture than that. And I’d love to show you the whole story.
Because you deserve to feel strong, happy and confident. Your needs didn’t stop when you became a mom.
More About Me
I’m Mom to my 4-year-old, Avery and 1-year-old, Nora. I spent almost 10 months growing each of them and they look pretty much exactly like my husband, Adam. I’m obviously totally okay with that. 😉
I’m a complete nerd for all things psychology – mindset, goals, habits, motivation – and actually have my Honours Degree in Psychology.
I will never stop collecting health and fitness certifications. You can never be too in-the-know.
I love that feeling you get after a really good workout where your muscles are burning and you’re sweaty and a little (or a lot!) out of breath and you’re thinking “Yeah. That was a good one!” 💪🙌
I believe that focusing on your health and putting yourself first doesn’t mean you’re a bad mom. You deserve to feel awesome. Not just so you can be a better mom, wife, partner, friend… for you.
I’m known as that optimistic cheerleader who will use a proven strategy or tip she read about in a book to lovingly nudge you to keep going.
And I do all this research because I know you need more than a workout program. I can give you all the cutting-edge postpartum exercises in the world, but if you don’t have the right motivational foundation, habits, or mindset, you’re gonna get stuck and you probably won’t keep going.
But don’t worry. I’m not the type of person to abandon you. You’ve got this. I’ve got you.
If you’d like to get a feel for my style and have access to a free 21 day core & booty focused program (with foundational postpartum must-knows sprinkled in), pop your name and email below.
I’ll see you in there!
