Anna always challenges me in ways unique to my own needs while providing a welcoming and supportive space for women.
She understands common postpartum issues (bladder leakage, diastasis recti, prolapse, etc.), and she knows how to work with and around the barriers they may bring while also making you stronger to manage symptoms.

IS THAT NORMAL? IS THAT OK?

I've been in the fitness industry for over 10 years but it wasn't until I had my first baby that I saw it: there were massive gaps in the women's health, fitness, and athleticism space.
Women are commonly experiencing symptoms such as prolapse, diastasis recti, and navigating major life events like pregnancy and postpartum with little to no support.
Typical fitness programs, gyms, and coaches frequently do not consider the needs, struggles, or real lives of busy moms and parents.
The "look" that fitness and some women's health spaces have tends to be oppressive and excludes BIPOC, LGBTQ+ , people living in larger bodies, and other folks in marginalized bodies.
This is exactly what motivated me to build a welcoming, educational, anti-oppressive space - both in-person and virtually - to better support the women and folks that I get the opportunity to work with.
I can help you to feel confident in the gym and in life, and to gain power, capability, knowledge, and the support system you need to do all the things you love without hesitation.
How does it work?
Upon filling out the registration questionnaire, you will be sent an invoice from Bolte Fitness through Stripe to pay for the first month's session and to reserve your spot. You will then receive a confirmation email with information on the address, a health questionnaire to fill out, and other pertinent details. Core Foundations meets for 1 hour on Thursdays (beginning March 30th) at 5:45PM in Roland, AR.
Is this a "body back" program?
In short, no. Bodies change and evolve throughout our lives, as they should, and pregnancy and postpartum are no exception to this. We will honor where your body is at and what it is capable of while helping you feel safe, strong, and confident with movement. We will focus on progressing movement while being mindful of core and pelvic floor health.
This space is an all-inclusive safe space for all womxn.
How often will I be billed?
Core Foundations is an 8 week program, and you will be billed for a one-time payment of $360, or (2) monthly payments of $190/month upon registration for the full program.
I'm brand new to exercise, is this meant for me?
Absolutely! Because of the nature of this class, we will start where each person is currently at and progress from there. To ensure you get the most out of the program, I encourage you to contact me. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
Can I do this if I have pain, core, or pelvic floor symptoms?
As noted above, core and pelvic floor health will be a priority. I recommend seeing a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist to get a good grasp on your specific symptoms and how to best manage (please email email@example.com if you are having any trouble finding one near you). I will provide appropriate modifications for various core and pelvic floor symptoms to help you learn how you can best manage symptoms with specific movements and continue with the exercise you enjoy!
"I was scared to run, jump or even do squats for fear of re-injuring. Anna worked closely with me to make sure I did not hurt myself and she helped me overcome my fear!
I can now run, jump, and do squats...Anna is an amazing person to work with!" - A.
