You don’t need any equipment! Although some of our workouts do involve equipment in the videos within the app, you can substitute what we’ve used with whatever is in your home – cans of beans instead of weights, a chair instead of a ball, etc.
If you’re uncertain how to do a workout without the equipment we’ve used in our videos, just post your question in The Mamatrainer Community Facebook Group, and we’ll give you a personalized solution!
Small spaces are no problem! All you need is enough space for a single yoga mat.
You can make the workouts as hard or as easy as you want. Within the app, we provide modifications for some workouts to show you an alternative. To make most workouts harder, you do more reps, use more weight, or take less rest. To make the workouts easier, do fewer reps, use less weight, or take more rest.

Yes! We have a program designed specifically for women who have had a C-Section. We recommend that if you had a C-Section, you use this program first before moving on to the Postpartum Program.
Most importantly, listen to your body. If anything hurts, or just doesn’t feel right, stop. You can always come back later.
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it. Working out with your kids present shows them that it’s important to move your body and care for yourself, as well as staying fit and healthy.
The truth is, we find that kids love it when you work out, especially if you involve them! It makes exercise fun for both you and your kids.
Please keep safety in mind when you work out with your kids in the room. For tips on how to exercise safely with kids, please refer to the Resources section within each program.
The app has a specific recovery and healing program for either c-section or vaginal delivery that will guide you through the first 6 weeks postpartum, so technically you can start right away!
These programs are very gentle and focus on helping you gradually reintroduce connections between the brain and muscles, proper breathing, and good core and pelvic floor connection.
Most importantly, listen to your body. If you don’t feel ready, or something just doesn’t feel right, stop. You can always come back later. Regardless of how many weeks postpartum you choose to start, we do recommend you work through these recovery programs prior to beginning the postpartum exercise program.
Every body is different, and this is especially true during pregnancy and postpartum! We love helping mamas and moms-to-be find the perfect solution for your body, no matter what that means for you. Just ask us in The Mamatrainer Community Facebook Group, and we’ll give you a personalized solution!
