~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!

MHW is 8!Hi everyone! I did it ... I've ran a business for 8 years!💗 THANK YOU to all my clients, past and present who have supported me all these years! I truly wouldn't still be here if you didn't continue to come to my classes, events or train with me!8 years ago when I couldn't return to my old job part time post mat leave ... so I decided to start my company. The lack of classes for pregnant and postpartum women in #yeg made me realize where my passion truly was. As a Kinesiologist and Clinical Exercise Physiologist, I brought more rehab and education to my classes and the world spread quickly!4 months into starting my company, I found out I was pregnant with twins 🤔. Oh the emotional roller coaster. From having no idea about websites, social media or running a business, and now adding the stress of growing 2 babies inside of me with an 18 month old, I didn't know what this meant for my company.I kept things more low key. I chose not to expand when I had the opportunity from the start. I chose to now start offering classes out of my home studio while my 3 littles were with me... and you know what, I wouldn't change this decision.I got to be home with them. I made my own schedule that worked for my family. I kept my company small. Could I have expanded and hire more staff and outsourced my admin duties? I could have and almost did ... most of you don't know this, but 1 year before COVID hit, I almost signed a contract for a big studio, but my gut was telling me otherwise (and I am so thankful I listened!)I chose to focus on LIFE/WORK balance and decided a life with less income and smaller business was more important to me than running a bigger business ... and that worked for my family. Second, a huge thank you to my husband, kids, friends and family who encouraged me to do what I love; listened to my frustrations; gave me a kleenex when I needed it; poured me a glass of wine to celebrate my accomplishments and kept reminding me of my "why" I started my company.So let's cheers to MHW making it to 8 !I would love it if you would post a comment below as to how I helped you on your wellness journey the past 8 years!❤ ...

Life/ Work BalanceNOT Work/Life Balance.I had a mindset change a few years ago with my company and dug deep into my "why". Why did I start my company in the first place ... and the answer was to be home with my daughters AND THAN to help other women to feel confident in rehabbing their body during pregnancy and postpartum. I lost sight of this for a few years as a new business owner, having no clue about social media, trying to figure out how to run everything on my own AND be a mom of 3. The countless hours doing admin work, website stuff, teaching, training, emails, marketing, mingling ... wore me out.We are taught by "influencers" that if we do more, produce more content, sell more, have more followers, etc we will be more successful with a higher income and then ... we can enjoy a laid back life with more trips or stuff to buy.I'M CALLING BS ON THIS MINDSET.Who is to say what "being successful" means. Why would I buy into a program where someone else tells me what my idea of success is? This means something very different to all of us.As I observe and talk to people over the years in their careers and see them achieve the top 20 in their sales company, or being the president of a company or the business that now has 5 shops, or ...... I can see the change in who that person has become. From being on blood pressure medication, increased anxiety, extreme weight gain or loss, substance abuse, a change in their personality, decreased social well-being, divorce, etc I stop and ask them "Was it worth it?" The long hours;the sleepless nights; the eating out all the time; the less time spent with their kids. Not to shame them, but to understand their perspective of success and happiness.You know what most of them have replied to me ... they wish they would have kept their company smaller or have done less so they could have a happier life/ work balance... focusing on their LIFE and health first vs income and fame that they associated their success to. They would have done less.So today I challenge you to ask yourself what does "success" mean to you and are you living a life/ work balance. ... See MoreSee Less
