About a month ago, I introduced you to Fit2B, an online workout studio geared toward busy homemakers.
Since then, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Bethany, the mastermind and workout instructor behind what she deems her online fitness ministry.
You see–Bethany doesn’t just run this studio to bring in a little extra income for her family. She truly has a heart for seeing women heal from injuries, childbirth and simply the side effects of years of unfit lifestyles.
What drew me personally to the Fit2B site was Bethany’s emphasis on diastasis, which is a separation of the abdominal wall that makes it pretty much impossible to lose the pregnant belly after childbirth. Not only this, but this condition can contribute to chronic back pain, incontinence and more!
My second and third pregnancies left me with a 3-finger width diastasis–which pretty much feels like a hole underneath my belly button. I didn’t even realize I had one until stumbling across the Fit2B site! I just knew I was losing weight–but still had the pregnant belly.
And I’m not alone. An estimated 95% of all women who have had children have a diastasis of some degree–yet it’s sorely undiagnosed.
As I’ll be documenting my progress of healing my diastasis over the next few months, I asked Bethany to share some of her heart for this fitness ministry with us:
“Since childhood, I have been consistently fascinated by two miracles of creation: birth and bodies. Over time, this developed into a passionate accumulation of wisdom about postnatal fitness and what it really takes to get a mother “back into shape.”
“Birth is supposed to be a sacred, joyous time in a woman’s life, but trauma and injury during delivery can shadow a woman’s recovery and haunt her body with unnecessary hindrances. Many moms have resigned themselves to being broken, and my heart aches to share the truth of simple healing through loving movement to every woman, everywhere.
Using my degree in Exercise and Sport Science, along with 14 years of experience in the fitness industry, and two years of researching the methods of abdominal rehab experts, I’m equipping and empowering women to establish a life-changing core reconnection through Fit2B Studio’s wholesome, family-friendly workouts.” ~Bethany Learn, Fit2B
I’m pleased to announce that, starting in January, I’ll be hosting an 8-week fitness challenge aimed at encouraging busy homemakers to get into the habit of exercise. I need this challenge as much as anyone else, and I am excited about the accountability we will hopefully give each other.
I will be including one fitness post per week during the challenge–and I will be giving you updates about my disappearing (hopefully!) diastasis!
If you are interested in joining and do not yet have a fitness routine, I highly recommend Fit2B. You can exercise in the comfort of your home, and many of the workouts are only 10 minutes long–and some even include workouts you can do WITH your children!
You can cancel any time (no contracts or added membership fees!).
