Balance your body, mind, and spirit and become the mother who reclaimed her superpower
I have incredibly transformed my life and you can too.
I’ve been there. Became a mother of three and try to do it all. So, I get you. But I realized that my body needs me as much as everybody does.BOOK A CLARITY CALL WITH ME
“Nothing has to be healed, fixed, or changed” - Panache Desai’s Call to Calm daily meditations
I understand that mom’s body has unique needs and the typical gym based program isn’t suitable for most moms.
When I had my first child in 2003, I prided myself that I bounced back so quickly.
I was running at 4 weeks postpartum.
Being a personal trainer at a gym, I felt additional pressure to be a model example of health and well being.
While I looked ripped and incredible, I was crying on the inside.
Secretly, at night, I would prop my legs up and tend to my aching back and wonder why at age 30 my body felt like an 80 year old’s.
I wanted answers and I found them.SCHEDULE A CLARITY CALL WITH ME
In 2016, a colleague introduced me to pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy and my BEMER has become the greatest recovery tool in my arsenal.
With more efficient blood flow, my body can heal and restore itself like never before.
Sore, achy muscles and fatigue which used to annoy me (not necessarily slow me down) are less frequent now.
I also use wearable neurological performance support.
Skin contact with it triggers a neural response in the brainstem that helps manage pain, as well as improve mobility and balance.
Add to that hydrolyzed, electrolyzed water and high vitamin plant-based supplement support and I easily maintain my wellness in minutes a day with little effort.
I can proudly say that I have not logged a single sick day in 5 years and counting and that is even amidst the tumultuous years of my divorce and family reorganization, which you can read about in my book You Are a Supermom.
Slowing down is the new fitness
My goal is to empower women and make sure they are exercising safely throughout pregnancy
It would take another nine years and the pandemic of 2020 for me to embody slowing down as a lifestyle.
As an experienced, trained fitness professional with two decades of experience in the field, it became apparent to me in 2014 that there was a lack of knowledge about safety protocols for exercise during pregnancy and after.
That was whenI began researching and I was shocked by the lack of exercise studies on this population. I interviewed OB/GYNs and pelvic floor physical therapists and wrote a 2 Level course for fitness professionals called Power of Pregnancy.
It was my goal to empower women to keep exercising safely throughout pregnancy and to debunk the myth that working out hard was the answer to losing baby weight.
Then I began teaching Power of Pregnancy in fitness centers and for two employee wellness programs at school districts in Colorado.
Women felt relieved to know exactly how to take care of their bodies during pregnancy and beyond.
Knowing how stressful being a mom can be, I have plenty of fun, invigorating ways to unleash your inner champion. Drumming, dancing, and working out on playgrounds are just a few ways I spice things up.KNOW MORE ABOUT POWER OF PREGNANCY
I believe the body is a playground to enjoy.
You can be limitless in what you want to do.
I grew up the youngest of 10 kids, with 6 brothers. Physical activity was a way of life and being strong was a basic survival skill.
Following my knee surgery as a junior in high school, I discovered my passion for rebuilding the body after injury.
I earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Science from Indiana University in 1996.
Since then, I have earned personal trainer certifications from American College of Sports Medicine and National Academy of Sports Medicine.
In 1998, I became a certified yoga teacher. And, more recently, in 2018, I became a Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist.
Creating the 16 hour Power of Pregnancy continuing education program for fitness professionals in 2015 boosted my reputation as an authority in pregnancy fitness. I trained dozens of professionals in the protocol and currently runs the program with Denver Public School Employee Wellness program.KNOW MORE ABOUT POWER OF PREGNANCY

After having my second child I developed diastasis recti and was not able to correct on my own. So my immediate goal was to get my abdominal muscles back together and strong again. My long-term goal was to incorporate physical activity back into my hectic schedule.
My abdominal muscles are back together and I am back to a workout routine that works within my busy schedule.
I loved that Gina met me where I was within my fitness goals and gradually pushed me to exceed my goals. She was able to teach me quick full-body workout routines that have been easy to incorporate to my schedule. Gina was also able to accommodate my schedule by offering Zoom sessions which made it so that I could easily incorporate this into my schedule. Thanks for your help Gina!
