Gas Station Stretches

A member asked if I might have any good stretches I do while “pumping petrol” … and it took me a full 27 seconds to figure out what she meant. Hehe! We call it “gas” around here, and that’s not the first time our forum has had some fun with the language differences we encounter […]

Trampolines and Diastasis Recti

Is it safe to jump on a trampoline while you diastasis recti is healing? What about if you have prolapse or urinary or fecal incontinence? Let me just say straight up that leaking pee or poo when doing any activity is a RED flag to stop that activity and seek help from a women’s health […]

Are You Fit and Trained To Deal With Disaster?

Would you be strong and organized enough to evacuate your home in less than 30 minutes if a blazing inferno suddenly surrounded your neighborhood like the California Wildfires? Would you be resilient and self-powered enough to live without electricity for over a month like Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria? Would you have the resources to […]

If You’re Raising a Girl, You Need This New eCourse!

If-Youre-Raising-a-Girl-You-Need-This-New-eCourse-Fit2B

My daughter was almost 11 when this course started to materialize in my mind.
