Mother of son with SPD shares how Fit2B is changing their lives

“I actually am 2 years out post baby. But I didn’t know that I had diastasis recti. I just thought I had belly bloat or that my trunk was too short for all my insides. So I posted the first picture {see photo below} on the trim healthy mama site asking what people recommended to fix that tummy! And they all said it looked like diastasis. I was directed here, signed up and it’s been amazing!!! Diastasis is for the birds!” -Katie G.

“I started with the Foundational 5 and now I do one of those f5’s mixed with a couple videos from either the glute path, arm path or beginners path depending on what day of the week it is. I can’t do much of the glute or arm paths yet as my diastasis is still wide, so I just keep doing the ones in the beginning as I work my way through the beginners path…but we’re getting there!!!!”

“This is what OUR at home workouts really look like {see photo below} My pose isn’t perfect, we’re just having fun together…it wasn’t a serious workout session. I do mine first thing in the morning. He has so much fun joining me in the mornings that he wanted to do a little one before bed. We giggled more than we “warrior’d.” He struggles daily with SPD [sensory processing disorder] so he’s my little warrior.”

“I came from a background of planking and burpees and crazy amounts of extreme squats and plies. Then I got the diastasis and none of it was helping and so much harder. I didn’t know I had the diastasis at the time however. I was injuring my lower back doing all the lower ab work (I know why now). All that being said, when I first found your site I literally said, out loud, “this is ridiculous. This workout is doing absolutely nothing.” And when I started the glute path and I did the warrior workout I said again, “I’m losing so much tone waiting for this diastasis to close. This is crazy…I’m going to lose my tone!!” But waddaya know? It works!! Turns out I didn’t need all that crazy stuff I was doing before. I never liked it anyway. I dreaded it. Now I can’t WAIT to get up and gently exercise. The stuff I do now with your site, most of my fitness friends call it “day off work,” just little keeping active things for their day off. But it’s working!! Turns out I don’t need to kill myself.”

Note from Bethany, Fit2B founder: Thank you for sharing your success with us, Katie! You’re so right about not killing yourself! I’m so glad you found me and Fit2B through THM. They have a great program, and I’ve chatted with them on the phone a couple times. Their info on DR is pretty solid, and we send lots of our clients back and forth between us! You originally posted these tidbits in our member forum and gave me permission to share them here on our main blog. Thank you so much!
