    Helping Moms Regain Strength & Confidence with Ashley of Get Mom Strong

    On today’s episode, Steph interviews Ashley Nowe, a certified Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist. Ashley teaches women not only how to return to exercise safely and effectively, but how to kick butt while doing it! They discuss what a safe reintroduction to fitness looks like after baby and how it’s different depending on the mom’s experience with labor and delivery. They share what can happen if you jump back into fitness too intensely or too quickly. They also cover a popular topic many mamas are concerned about, diastasis recti--how to know if you have it and your options to heal. If you’re looking for inspiration and relatable fitness guidance from an expert who really gets it, Ashley is your new go-to and we’re excited to share her with you on today’s show! 
    Topics Discussed:
    How to safely approach postpartum fitness How to know if you have diastasis recti and treatment options What’s “common” vs. “normal” postpartum with leaking and pain Signs you may be pushing your body too hard Common myths about postpartum fitness  One thing moms can do today to reconnect with their new body Show Notes:
    Instagram @getmomstrong  Getmomstrong.com Listen to today’s episode on our website After the birth of her twins and the ensuing battle to heal her own postpartum core, Ashley Nowe founded Get Mom Strong, a platform dedicated to helping moms regain their strength and confidence from the inside out. As an athlete and mother, Ashley was frustrated that pregnant and postpartum women were being told to simply accept postpartum "side effects" as the price of motherhood. She decided to change the narrative.
    Ashley, a certified Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist, teaches women not only how to return to exercise safely and effectively, but how to kick all the butt while doing it! Her home-based fitness program takes women from the postpartum basics through total body, high intensity workouts that strengthen the core and pelvic floor.

    Top tips how to keep to a workout routine as a busy mom Strategies for a tired mom who still wants to workout Biggest mistakes people make when they start a new fitness routine Benefits to fitness and nutrition outside of aesthetics How @bubsnaturals fits into your daily diet for parents and kids Why something is always better than nothing when it comes to fitness! Show Notes: 
    streetparking.com  @streetparking and  @fearlessmiranda on IG -  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgrp6PEvaSTZe5qbcWSniOg Listen to today’s episode on our website Street Parking was founded by Julian and Miranda Alcaraz in 2016. Miranda – after 15 years in the fitness industry, 8 years on CrossFit HQ seminar staff, and 8 years competing in CrossFit. Julian – after 10 years in the fitness industry, and 5 years competing in CrossFit. Both having trained and competed at the highest level – the CrossFit Games – they found themselves in new territory – busy. Julian was running a business and Miranda had settled into a full time job. At the time the couple was dating and lived over an hour away from each other. They noticed something interesting. The workouts they would post on their social media from HOME – with simple equipment – was what people who followed them responded to most.
    An idea was formed. Post the simple workouts we are doing at home – so people can follow along. Charge a fee that is totally doable for most people. Create a community where we can push and motivate each other. The first ever workouts were posted in November 2016 (just a few days before Miranda found out she was pregnant with their baby boy). Memberships went up for sale the week before New Years. Within the first month, Street Parking had 700 Members.
    As Street Parking continued to grow and the members were posting about how this had changed the game for them to be able to see success at home. The fire that Julian and Miranda felt to provide the best programming, community, and service possible grew as well. With their own lives about to change forever with the birth of their son – they knew that this was something they wanted to dedicate themselves to 100%. Miranda left her full time job. Julian sold his business.
