Testimony of the week:
“Yesterday I did Defining Deltoids. It was perfect and had lots of the very things I was given by my PT and orthopedic surgeon to do for my frozen shoulder and rotator cuff strengthening. I’ll be adding this to the routine to do more often.”-Brooke H.

Exercise Q & A with Beth
Home Workout Path for SEptember
Technically, it’s not a “pathway,” but we found out that a lot of our members treat it like one, working through these routines once a month to be sure they’re up on our latest releases. There’s no order. The workout at the top of the list is our most recent release, and the one at the bottom would be the 10th most recent release. You could make this a goal for September: Work through all 10 of our most recently released Diastasis-Aware Workouts… but be warned: the list will change a couple times as we add new stuff 😉10 Newest Routines
CONTRIBUTOR SPOTLIGHT: LISA
Many brilliant minds have contributed to our ecourses, been guests on our Fit2B Radio podcast, and even provided workouts for us to stream here on our platform. We use this space to give a little extra credit to someone special each month because they certainly deserve it!
August In Review…
We released 2 brand new workouts including Pull-Up Prep & The Pelvic Rest Routine for people who have been placed on pelvic rest… And my race walking team WON the women’s submasters division of Portland To Coast!Pull-Up Prep Pelvic Rest Routine
“If you need a lil’ something to work out the kinks after sitting a lot, try Silver Savasana! I had missed that one, but the stretches were just what I needed after working at the table most of the day. Thanks Beth!”-Jennifer M.
“I’m 6 weeks postpartum and my midwife actually checked for diastasis at my appointment! Just wanted to share because my mom went through 9 pregnancies before even learning about it, so I was excited that my midwife knew about it. She checked it by my belly button and said it was about a 1(finger width). I did fit2b throughout my pregnancy and I’m excited to keep going!” –Elizabeth B.
“When you can’t decide which workout to choose, so you do ten 5-minute workouts.”-Sarah M.
“Tried the new Lower Back Love routine on Fit2B – TummySafe Fitness this afternoon and my lower back is feeling great! For those who don’t know, I have scoliosis and it really is important that I take time to care for my back.”-Kelli M. (who shared this picture)
“I have tried so many different programs and workout routines for the last 35 years or so and never have I ever felt so confident that I have the choice to do the right thing to care for my body…it honestly can bring me to tears. Thank you, Beth! I’m starting with ‘Orange Openers‘ this morning!”-Tricia M.
“I’m so grateful for this group and what you created, Beth! My 8 year old daughter is so curious about her body and what will happen as she gets older. Like so many, I grew up with shame around these “private” matters and wouldn’t have even dared to ask about them. I have the language and the resources to talk to her about the amazingness that is a growing girl’s body. We’ve been going through the Fit2B Girls’ Course little by little as she asks about various things (when will her period start? Why do girls get a period? Does everyone get cramps? And so on and so forth). Thanks Beth and everyone here who is so open and honest!!” -Cynthia D.
Warning!! Do not I repeat Do not underestimate the effectiveness of Black Battlesticks. My legs and butt are sore today! Okay, carry on…-Charline L.
“I did Fuschia Fascia for the first time. By the end, I was crying with relief of letting some things go. Definitely confirmed it is time to move my career in another direction. So thankful for this workout and the joy movement brings!!”
“I just did Green Gertie this morning with my new-to-me 25 lb kettlebell. Wow! I love the education along with the workout. I felt safe the whole time and could feel when to modify or take a break. This was awesome, thanks!”
“I was leaning toward aerobics 2 which isn’t easy for me at this point, per se, but is in my comfort zone. My younger kids (7 and 4) pushed me to the color series and then to Blue Belt. honestly, I was reluctant. I LOVED it! They did it with me, which was a bonus.” —Mandy T.
“You will LOVE taking the F5 course because it is a realistic commitment (not too long, not too short) with RESULTS! Who wants to spend a ton of time and energy, and still feel like you’re at square one? You WILL feel the F5 from DAY 1 — and that spurs you on to finish the course strong and move on to continue to challenge yourself.”-Laura D.Explore Membership options Shop Fit2b
“Weightlifting 301 I wasn’t sure I’d finish. I gave myself permission not to. I skipped the last half of the plank-fly combo because my legs wouldn’t properly hold my weight. I kind of wanted to see how it ended so I pushed forward, doing fewer reps or even skipping sets if needed. I got to the end. Everything that can shake is and I’m a hot, sweaty mess. Not sure when/if I’ll come back to it, but at least I know. I CAN.” –Bethany V.
“I tried out Sterling Center and Shining Savasana to relax tonight. Loved both of them! Beth, you look so pretty in these silver videos!” -Erin H.
“Sooooo, what do you do when your daughter says, ‘Umm, Mom, your butt looks tighter. Is it okay to say that?’ Well, I don’t know about you, but this mom got super excited #fit2bforthewin” -J. Roe
“I’ve been trying to eat healthier and move more since November last year, but life goes up and down, and so do the numbers on my scale, and in what, 8 months? I’ve only lost 2kg on the scales. But today I measured my legs (for a sewing thing) and thought, well since I’ve already done all of those measurements I might as well measure everything into my much neglected health app. And lo and behold, most of my measurements are smaller. According to the app I’m carrying a bit less water weight, AND I’ve gained almost a kg of lean body mass. That’s a kg of muscle!!! you guys have no idea how happy it makes me to know I’m growing muscles!” -Kristin W.
“I just tried Rebound Cardio and…that was the most fun I’ve had on my rebounder, ever! I loved it! I was putting off trying it because I didn’t know how my pelvic floor would handle it, but there was a lot of variation in the intensity and I’m glad I gave it a go! Beth, I loved the music too – so fun!”-Jennifer M.
“I’m feeling pretty darn proud of myself. I’ve done a routine every day for the past 3 days during my kids nap time which is the most consistently I have ever done anything fitness related! Kept it easy today with a stretching routine but on previous days I did the walking routine as well as Basic Aerobics. I like the way that amount of exercise makes me feel.” -Courtney C.
“The variety alone is reason to join! There are workouts that are gentle and slow for tired or rough days, there are workouts that are the complete opposite that will get you sweating and working! The creativity of the workouts… you’d never be bored!” – Ericka I.
“Seriously thankful for the kid workouts today! We are in quarantine with my husband having covid (not serious). Kids are bouncing off the walls – Beth to the rescue 😂 ” -Cynthia D.
“I’m so thankful to have found tummy safe fitness! I love the encouragement in all of the videos. I’ve been a member for about 4 years and it has been such a blessing! I love the educational component, too. I’ve learned new things about myself and my body along the way.” -Brenda L.
“Saw my PT today and she was so impressed by my ability to engage my PF and TA. There were little tweaks I had to do, but she said we covered 3+ appointments worth of exercises. Thank you Beth – it was all because of Fit2B, and I told her that!” -Sara S.
“Rough day. woke up tired/drained. 1st forced workout of the day was cleaning up mounds of dog vomit that I was greeted with. Last-also forced workout was helping my husband break away ice off our roof at 9 pm because it was causing leaks in the house. Chosen workout was ‘Neck Routine‘ because i needed to get some of my tension out and relieve my headache. Grateful for it the routine!”
“I always do a big/heavy weight routine on Monday afternoons, after school with my kids. I have upped my weights in the last little while, and I am feeling so proud to be able to do that! It feels SO good to be getting stronger, and to be feeling better. Couldn’t do it without Fit2b!!!!”
“Tried 21 Tone Up for the first time today; gotta be honest it kinda kicked my booty! But, as usual, Beth made it doable with all of her tips and suggested modifications; I listened to my body and did my best. There was such a great quote in there, too! Something like you have to choose to focus on the right thing. So good. Definitely going to come back to this one.”
“I had a four finger gap from the birth of my twins. It’s kind of hard to tell but seems to be at a two now. (Was at a four right before I started fit2B) So happy I found fit2B. I actually like working out now and am feeling so much healthier and stronger.”
“Oh this is yummy movement! As soon as Kelly said, “pelvic diaphram” it made sense and the visualization of the two diaphrams working parallel. I only did the first step today. I have been feeling weaker as I’ve neglected some of my exercises. I’m looking forward to coming back and doing it again” -Lindsay H.
“I feel so empowered! I was so nervous about doing a workout because my hernia has been super sensitive today . But I had planned to do Fuschia Fascia, so I just promised myself I would stop if it was bothering me – it felt so amazing that I did the contralaterals too. For the first time in years (decades?) I’m starting to get that exercise endorphin rush.”
“For me it’s the encouragement. You can get videos anywhere but a course that heals your core and your heart is amazing!” -Kim L.
“Just have to give a shoutout for the wood floor workout – I’m not sure if I have ever seen it mentioned, which made finding it a hidden gem! There was so much more variety than I expected and it was a lot of work and so much fun! Definitely would recommend if you have wood floors!” -Melissa B.
I knew nothing about core health until after the birth of my first child when I realized something wasn’t right with my stomach. After lots of online research, I found and joined Fit2B. Your workouts helped me understand and strengthen my body. I had an AMAZING postpartum experience with my second child, and I attribute so much of that to what I’ve learned from you.-Erin M.
