Do it! You won’t regret it!
Even though I didn’t have any symptoms, a friend suggested that I see a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist; thankfully I did! Andrea was realistic, helpful, and solved issues that I thought were just ‘normal’ after having a baby, (like you shouldn’t have to get up to pee in the night if your child miraculously sleeps through). She suggested I join Pam’s Core+Floor class. After 6 months of being involved in Hot Mama, I considered it a step back. I thought it would be an ‘easy’ class that would sidetrack my fitness goals. However, I didn’t realize until after, that this was actually my first step forward in recovering from childbirth. Sure I had been getting ‘fit’ in Hot Mama (in the right light I was almost starting to develop triceps definition ), but my body needed Core+Floor. I learned how to properly move through exercises, I learned how to use all of my muscles while moving, AND I got a great full body work out. I highly recommend Core+Floor! It really is more than just a fitness class; its educational and helps your whole body grow stronger. It should be everyone’s FIRST fitness program after childbirth. Your body will thank you! Mine did!

I've been doing HIIT the Mat for the summer and find myself looking forward to the class each week. It is the perfect combination of a workout and yoga. You don't have to pick one or the other you get the benefits of both. I had never done Yoga before and so this was my first introduction into it and Pam makes it easy to learn where you feel confident and comfortable with everything she is showing you. Pam also takes into account different skill levels so even if you have been doing yoga for years she can adapt her approach to all skill levels. The class is easy-going and fun but Pam also pushes you to go further and reach your fitness goals. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone. This is the second program I've done with Pam (the first being Hot Mama fitness) and she is THE BEST instructor. She makes it fun, entertaining, easy-going while ensuring your get the most bang for your buck and grow and develop! Can't say enough good things!
Having a child changes everything, including your body and potentially your relationship to it also. Pam's floor + core postpartum fitness classes gave me the space, knowledge and support I needed to start me on my own pelvic floor and core healing after my second child was born. Pam's classes are simultaneously challenging and laid back. The core + floor class gave me the ability to get moving again, feel strong, energize my week, and feel part of a community while also contributing to better mental health. Pam's also a mom, so if it's happening to you, she's probably been there. If I had to sum up the core + floor class in two words, they would be empowering and accessible. Thanks Pam!
Let me just start out by saying, Pam made me fall in love with Yoga! I have never allowed myself the time to do restorative Yoga, cause I'm the type that loves a good, intense workout, in as short amount of time as possible. So with this class, you get 30 minutes of intense- make your muscles scream- High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) followed by 30 mins of more muscle building yoga, then 30 mins of the best stretch EVER- yoga! (Pam will fill you in on the technical names of the yoga) My mind and body are so happy/relaxed after leaving this class, but for days after, I feel the effects of the moves we did...I will definitely be returning for another session of this program! Thanks, Pam!

I look forward to this program all week - it’s a group of women that work hard but love to laugh and complain while pouring with sweat. The combo of HIIT with the strengthening yoga and then the stretching yoga is a really effective workout that leaves me in a positive and calm happy state.

This class is absolutely fantastic! I attended after I had my second daughter and had so much success I had to return after my third! Pam has a way of providing a vigorous workout while keeping it fun and also providing the support and guidance that moms need. Pam provides a wonderful environment where we can bring our babies, even on their cranky days, and feel nothing but support and understanding from other moms while we all work on fitness. I highly recommend this class to all moms.
