I sought out help from my doctor and physiotherapist. This proved to be fruitless. The evaluations were basically non-existent and my issues were minimized. I was told that it was a “normal” part of motherhood and that I should just continue with my kegels. This was NOT ENOUGH!
I decided to take things into my own hands!
I’ve been interested in fitness for most of my life. After much research and reading I worked on healing my own issues. I was able to work my way back to running and training again. This gave me the motivation to obtain my certification as a personal trainer and as a pregnancy & postpartum corrective exercise specialist. Combined with my 10 year experience as a nurse working in community health and maternal child health, I hope to support other mothers through their postpartum journey.
After strengthening my own core and rehabbing myself, I regained my quality of life. The Post-Baby Core Restore programme includes the same training and techniques I used to heal myself.
In 2019 I ran the Munich half-marathon without peeing myself!!
I’m Amanda Isaac, Mother, Nurse and Certified Personal Trainer.
Originally from Canada, I have been living in Munich, germany for over 7 years with my husband and two children (7 & 5yrs old).
My first area of interest after completing my nursing studies was maternal child care. I worked for 2 years on the postpartum ward helping new moms in their first hours after giving birth. I followed this clinical work experience with community health & Maternal child Care in remote northern communities of the James Bay, Quebec.
Moving to Germany with my family meant changing career paths. It was not one that was easily accepted and I fought hard to find a way to blend my professional experiences to create a new way forward. My principle interest has always been supporting the health and wellness of women. I journeyed into life coaching and personal training as a way to continue my mission. Helping mothers navigate not only the physical changes brought on by pregnancy but being able to offer support and guidance through the postpartum period.
Creating the “Post-Baby Core Restore” programme is somewhat of a full circle moment for me. I originally began my University studies in the field of Athletic Therapy. Having always been an athlete growing up and wanting to be able to help people, it felt like the right fit. I wanted to understand how the body worked and performed. This programme combines my clinical experience working with mothers and children with my understanding of how to apply exercise as a tool to heal the body. With this programme I was able to resolve my own postpartum issues. I am happy to share this with other mothers and enable them to feel empowered and confident!
