Krista is a fitness coach specializing in pelvic floor health in movement and exercise. Her own experience with common pelvic floor related symptoms is what lead her to specialize in this area over 5 years ago. Having three children of her own, she has dealt with diastasis, umbilical hernia, back and hip pain, prolapse and incontinence. Through a combination of pelvic floor physiotherapy and retraining her body through core and pelvic floor focused strength and conditioning, she was able to quickly heal from a hernia repair surgery and create a functionally strong body to reduce and eliminate her symptoms.
Krista is a Master Trainer for Bellies Inc. a Canadian organization where one of several missions is to train fitness professionals and teach them strategies for working with postpartum women. She has taken additional pelvic floor focused courses including The Female Athlete, a program hosted by an Australian physiotherapist, designed to look at strategies to help women expand their symptom free zone and eliminate the fear of movement.
Krista has expanded her exercise knowledge and training among a range of fitness disciplines, from general group fitness to weight training and CrossFit. She is a certified BCRPA Weight Trainer and CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. Through over 9 years in the fitness industry, and 5 years of experience working as a pelvic floor fitness expert, Krista uses a variety of exercise theories to help women from beginner to advanced fitness levels safely reintegrate back into exercise. Building strong, functional bodies has been a proven tool to help women heal from pelvic floor dysfunction.
