~Message from the Owner and Founder of Momentum Health & Wellness~

Hi!

I’m Rachelle, the Owner and Founder of Momentum Health & Wellness!

I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. I now have over 15 years of experience in the fitness industry working as a Certified Exercise Physiologist and Pre and Post Natal Fitness Specialist.

I started my company to inspire and educate others about fitness and wellness. I want to create a COMMUNITY of prenatal and postnatal women who will support one another through their health and wellness journey.  I also want to EDUCATE families on the importance of creating a healthy environment at home and being a positive role model for their children.

Being a mom to 3 beautiful girls, I feel that I can relate to topics about pregnancy, motherhood and raising a family.  From the moment we find out we’re pregnant to the sleepless nights when our baby is teething to the moment we send off our child to school (and everything in between).  It’s scary being a pregnant. It’s scary and hard being a parent. The emotions we experience in our day is beyond words to describe… until you’re in it … and you can now relate to others in one way or another. This is why we need to build a healthy community. A community where we encourage one another to be more positive; live a balanced and healthy life; show your children what it’s like to eat healthy and play outside.

I truly love what I do and I am very blessed that I am able to start my own company and show others the passion I have for health and wellness!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the services I provide!

Exercise of the week
Jumping jacks and plank jacks with a band

A great cardiovascular and strength exercise that gets your heart pumping! Do this combo of 4 each for 1 minute. Then alternate between a strength exercise and this cardio exercise for a total of 20 minute workout!

The purpose of my exercises of the week is to show you that you don't need a lot of equipment at home to get a full body workout in.

I do give this exercise to postnatal moms. I get them to try jumping and see if they have any incontinence or pelvic floor concerns during or after the exercise. We can't label all postpartum women the same and tell them they can't or shouldn't jump. You never know what your capable of until you try it. If you do have pelvic floor concerns, please contact a pelvic floor physiotherapist (I know some really awesomely ones) and together we will get you back to activities you love!

Try it out and let me know how it goes!

I ran a 10km race in Jasper last weekend. If you know anything about me, I'm not a runner but will challenge myself by doing things I don't love.

I've said this before ... we should take ourselves out of our comfort zone and challenge ourselves physically and mentally. Running is definitely a mental challenge for me. I get bored easily if I'm not running after my kids, soccer balls or my golf ball because sometimes I hit it in the wrong fairway . 🤷‍♀️

So to all my clients who don't love to run ... start running. Start slow. Challenge yourself.

Better yet ... come run with me in the Shoppers Love. YOU. Run for Women supporting the @loisholehosp mental health programs

May 25th!

The struggle is real during Easter.

I know what my clients are eating this week, so my Fitcamp challenge this week was no added sugars in our meal plan. No empty calories. Baking our own snacks. Being aware of how we are fueling our bodies. It is so easy to sit down with a bag of costco size mini eggs and eat half of the bag while watching TV. Just don't do it!! Make homemade chocolate treats instead if you need a treat once in awhile.

Rejoice Nutrition & Wellness Inc. has some awesome recipes for chocolate bark! Check her website out for ideas!

Want to work off those extra calories during Easter? My next round of Fitcamp starts in May!
4 classes a week to get you feeling great in your body!
