A friend of Sam’s had kindly passed on my details to her after the birth of her daughter. We met at my studio and put together an action plan to restore Sam’s core and to try and lose weight along the way.
Normally when I meet people their diets are not exactly perfect but Sam had a wonderful diet. She is a great cook and ate a variety of healthy foods so I knew we would be tackling this challenge with exercise.
Sam had a small diastasis recti (a separation of the abdominals) so we had to be cautious as to what exercises we chose. We did some releases to ease off tight muscles and introduced some gentle core exercises. Her diastasis repaired very quickly so we increased intensity. Sam lunged, squatted, pushed, pulled and pressed her way through the workouts I set and got stronger and stronger each week. As you can see from the pictures, Sam’s transformation is fantastic. Whenever I see her ‘before’ pictures I can’t believe how incredibly well she has done. Excellent work Sam!
