8 week corrective exercise self guided program designed to help you decrease & eliminate urinary incontinence, strengthen, flatten & improve Diastasis recti, get stronger and generate more confidence in your postpartum body.
2 years ago I felt broken.....
I was peeing down to my knees, I felt a scary "bulge" and heaviness as if something was falling out, my stomach was not the one I worked so hard to get... I felt broken, ugly, undesirable and wanted to crawl into a cave and never come out.
The days my prolapse symptoms were at their peak, even walking was uncomfortable, I didn't want to go anywhere or do anything with my family. I was mad and angry and felt like my body had truly failed me. I thought I'd never be able to lift heavy weights again and that this was it, this was life.
If you have ever felt this way, I get it. I see you, I hear you and I know how you feel.
With my expertise as a Pre & Postnatal Corrective Exercise Specialist through PCES and certified Glute Specialist, I get to help women that are in my shoes improve their pelvic floor health, improve their core and diastasis recti, and help them to feel fit, strong and confident in the body God gave them.
How it works
CoreLIFT Basics is an 8 week self guided program
We start back at the basics and build a strong core foundation with incorporating breath work with movement. Within the program we focus on corrective exercises through our core, posture and pelvic floor to improve diastasis recti and pelvic floor dysfunction. We focus on building strength in a functional way throughout the body.
In the 8 weeks of the CoreLIFT Basics you will be guided through the right exercises your body needs to improve and feel better in your body.

Hi I'm Angela your coach!
I'm so pumped to offer you the CoreLIFT Basics. This program is going to help you generate amazing results. The key is to be consistent! Without being consistent change won't happen.
I created the Basics program out of need for moms who wanted a self guided option to do on their own.
This is perfect for someone
who doesn't need additional guidance
can be consistent on their own
symptoms are mild
general knowledge of fitness
who is already working out and just needs some guidance on exercises to help correct dysfunction to compliment their workout routine.
My personal exercise favorites are ones that are effective and under 30 minutes! Being a busy mom I don’t have time to fit in my workouts or corrective exercises for more than 30 minutes a day and I’m sure you don’t either.
Over the last 9+ years as a fitness professional, my own personal journey from trainer to exercises specialist, I've learned so much of what it takes to find true confidence within your body as a busy mom.
After years of dealing with urinary incontinence, yo-yo dieting, stressing over my appearance, I finally found my happy place and I can't wait to help you find yours too.
CoreLIFT was born and created out of my desire to find true happiness from the inside out and to build strength and confidence.
Frequently asked Questions
What equipment and space do I need?
You will need a 9 inch pilates ball, rubber loop band, resistance bands with handles, and foam roller. Other equipment you can find around the house; kitchen towel, wall, sturdy chair, balloons/straws for later in the program and something to anchor your bands on to at times. As for space a living room or office area should be fine. The beginning we work a lot on the ground.
I'm not newly postpartum will this still be for me?
Yes, if you are experiencing urinary incontinence, weak core, hip or glute dysfunction this program is for you.
I'm currently working with a Pelvic Floor Physical therapist, will this replace that?.No, please continue working with your PT. I encourage my clients to work with a Physical Therapist if they have that option as well.
I'm doing other workouts should I stop?
That depends on what those workouts are, how newly postpartum you are and how much time you have. If you experience any symptoms during those workouts, I recommend putting them on hold until we can get you stronger. We focus on core, posture, pelvic floor and glute strength so adding in light cardio and more upper body work may be beneficial.
I have a prolapse will this program help?
Having a prolapse can be so scary and leave you feeling hopeless. I've been there and I know what it is like. Someone with a mild prolapse and mild symptoms could benefit from this program. I highly encourage those continue to work with their Pelvic Floor Physical therapist to determine the internal health of your pelvic floor. The exercises in the program are ones I used personally to help strengthen and eliminate my prolapse symptoms, I also worked along side my Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist to check internal progress.
I don't have pelvic floor issues just diastasis recti, is this program for me?
Yes, pelvic floor dysfunction and diastasis recti tend to go hand in hand with one another. We address both barriers in depth in the program to provide you the best care. With a diastasis recti there are different assessments and exercises that one may need to add to her programing in order to improve her diastasis recti. We will work through it all.
