BIRTHFIT's definition of NUTRITION:
To cultivate a relationship with food that is rich in color and nutrients from a wide variety of animals, fish, plants, fruits, fats, and starchy tubers, while nourishing the body through the different rhythms of life and the female cycle.
In order to achieve that relationship, we’ll learn and discuss strategies that work for us as individuals, connect with ourselves and with fellow participants, and employ a mindset around nutrition that allows us to make decisions based on love, and not fear or shame. As women, many of us have complicated relationships with food and our bodies, sometimes leading to unproductive nutrition practices. In this course, we’ll learn the nuts and bolts of optimal nutrition, but go beyond that to truly find what works for you. This is not based on restriction or deprivation, or one-size-fits-all “rules.” Nutrition is not the same for everyone, and each person has unique goals and factors that impact what food works best for them. Instead, the idea is to learn about food, learn about what foods work best for their body, and create healthy habits that last a lifetime.
BIRTHFIT's definition of FITNESS:
To functionally train through the Motherhood Transition in all planes of motion to develop competencies and physical skills as well as enhance the main metabolic pathways.
To develop competencies and physical skills is not just for kicks. Fitness is crucial for living a vibrant, fun and pain-free life. This class will teach you intentional, functional movements concentrating on core strength and posterior chain activation. The best part is that all of the things you'll learn in THIS fitness class you will take with you for the rest of your life.
