Letting You In On A Secret – P.volve

I’M SHARING VICTORIA’S SECRET!

fit mom, pvolve, nyc workout, exerciseWanna have a Victoria Secret body but don’t know what their secret is? Well now I know and I’m about to share all the details here!  I’m thrilled that I got to try out this new workout, P.Volve because it is the workout those famous supermodels swear by!  It builds strength not bulk, and promises gain, not pain. Sound good?

P.VOLVE WHAT’S THAT?

They call their focus, “functional movement.”  And they contrast it with the high-impact, sweat-filled, grueling workouts that I personally despise.   Using the basics of neuromuscular science, they help you master precise movements and activate muscles in a meaningful way.  Less time, less energy and more effective results!

  • Elimination of bulk, creating beautiful shape and definition
  • Specifics include more defined thighs, a higher butt, a stronger core
  • Works with any body shape, any fitness level
  • Low-impact anti-pulse training is easy on your joints
  • Activation of hard-to-reach muscles
  • A stronger body that helps you get more out of everyday life
  • A noticeable boost to your overall health, wellbeing, and confidence
  • Access to P.volve’s proprietary fitness products to optimize workouts

I especially enjoyed the funny-looking ball contraption that you had to wear in between your legs. It reminded me of the weight I felt in my pelvic area walking around as a pregnant woman back in the day.  And it made for a humorous bonding moment with the other moms in class! Fun! Fun!

Revolution Motherhood – NYC Fitness Program Review

nyc moms, randi zinn, manhattan moms, nyc mom network, nyc fitness, nyc postnatal, nyc mom workout
Ideally, I wouldn’t have to do a thing and miraculously, I’d have my pre-baby body back.  But alas, that method has not worked out so well for me despite the past 6 years of praying, hoping and wishing it would.  And because my handy excuse of ..”well I just had a baby” has expired YEARS ago, I knew I had to work out.. cuz Lord knows, I’m hopeless when it comes to controlling what I eat.  So when my friend, Randi Zinn invited me to try Rachel Welch’s Revolution Motherhood program I was intrigued!
Who is Rachel?

mom friends, revolution motherhood, randi zinn, nyc momsTo me, she is a fellow mom and a friend-of-a-friend.  She’s also that mom that inspires awe.  (“How did you get those abs of steel and look like THAT after having 2 kids,” I madly wonder with insane jealousy!) Thankfully though, this mom is willing to share her secrets to health, wellness and fitness and she is SO knowledgeable, warm and at peace that you feel more confident, empowered and motivated just from listening to her.

Officially, she’s a certified yoga instructor, health and wellness coach and an advocate for positive psychology, principles of conscious living, and healing post – pregnancy.  As a teacher, she’s extremely caring and available.  Always checking in, encouraging and letting you know that she can help with personal questions, you’ll wonder whether you hired a teacher or a friend.

What is Revolution Motherhood?

Revolution Motherhood is a doctor-recommended, fitness method that teaches you how to fully recover from pregnancy and childbirth. And it’s for mothers at all stages of motherhood from new moms to moms who like me just want to have some self-care and re-focus on fitness.  In the form of at-home, on-demand training or group classes found in Brooklyn and Manhattan, Rachel helps to rebuild deep core strength.  She supports post-baby recovery and healing while helping students progress at their own pace all the while reclaiming their body.

What is Revolution Motherhood’s method?

Part rebuilding, support and education this method is unlike other workouts.   I never expected to learn so much about the postnatal healing process that every mother goes through. It’s truly something every new mom needs to know, understand and appreciate.  I wish I had discovered the program earlier as it would have helped me be more in tune with my body’s changes while dealing with issues of postnatal injuries and strengthening of the core.

Don’t worry, you won’t need to be at any certain fitness level to try this course.  And there is no complicated choreography involved here.  Rachel finely integrates movements from yoga, pilates, barre, and pelvic physical therapy.  I found it so unique and helpful that she was so adept at merging PT into fitness.  If you’re a mom, I’m sure you’ll love this offering too!  Currently, she is the only method offering this path to women (and thus the revolution!)  I love how she informs in an empowering, hopeful, positive manner all the while preaching maternal activism.

Classes are baby-friendly too!  That’s right, you can bring your baby in to lie down/sit/workout besides you and not worry about childcare.  They are held in Park Slope (Brooklyn) or in the FlatIron District of Manhattan.
