About our moderator and her topic:
Inemesit Graham is a mother of 3 young sons, a fitness trainer and creator of Mummy Fitness. Mummy Fitness is a women’s health and wellness resource with a focus on postnatal fitness. Inemesit is a CanfitPro and ISSA certified Fitness Trainer, an ISSA Fitness Nutrition and Bodybuilding Specialist, and holds an Advanced Diploma in Postnatal Exercise. Mummy Fitness grew out of Inemesit’s own personal struggles with her postpartum body.
“After having two babies in two years I discovered I had a condition called diastasis recti which is the separation of the abdominal muscles from the midline. This meant that at 6 months postpartum I still looked 6 months pregnant. The only fitness information I found pertaining to the postnatal woman surrounded weight-loss, so I dropped to 90 pounds but was still uncomfortable and unhappy in my body. Beyond the distended belly I also had chronic lower back pain, low energy, and struggled with leaking urine, something I was told was normal for mothers. I was never told any of these symptoms were to do with the strength of my core muscles. I was never told they could be improved through corrective exercise or shown how to assist my body in healing.”
Over 30% of women at 12 months postpartum suffer from diastasis recti. Up to 75% of women between the ages of 30 and 59 will have from some degree of pelvic organ prolapse. This can lead to urinary and fecal incontinence, painful sex, pelvic pain and in extreme cases, the loss of an organ. Pelvic organ prolapse can be prevented and improved through corrective exercise. Diastasis recti, which can lead to hernia’s and back pain, can be improved through corrective exercise, yet the information is often not available to mothers. Worse still women are often encouraged to accept and ignore signs of core dysfunction, such as mild urinary incontinence.
Join Inemesit for this revealing talk on women’s fitness and learn how to train your body to be strong from the inside out. In the words of Socrates “It is a shame for a [wo]man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which [her] body is capable.”
