About the Nutrition Course
As you probably know “diet” and exercise work together. They don’t work together just in terms of weight loss, but also as a recovery tool. A postpartum mom is low on energy, and boosting her nutrients, or making sure her diet includes the right stuff, makes sure the body can provide what it needs for daily activity. As fitness professionals we cannot add all sorts of new muscular requirements without recommending the dietary requirements are present as well.
There are many places to get nutrition information, some more credible than others. Therefore, it is important for you to have a solid understanding of the topic. After completing this training, you will be able to:
Conduct a thorough assessment of your client’s nutritional health
Understand effective counseling techniques
Understand the importance of macronutrients for your client
Be able to create change beyond calories and percentages through behavior modification techniques
Includes 58 pages of Prenatal & Postnatal Nutrition written by our Registered Dietitian.
I have worked with research professionals, physical therapists and University Research diligently for 12 years. I want to dedicate all my resources and know how to YOU! Complete with Videos, Exercise Program Design, Anatomy, Worksheets, Case Studies and the Biomechanics of the body…all catered for the prenatal and postnatal mom. Since the conception of Moms Into Fitness, I have filmed 56 exercise DVDs for women who want to do everything they can to ensure the best start for their babies, and who want to feel stronger and more confident themselves. I want you to take that same knowledge and share your passion!

“Lindsay’s Certification course was thorough and a great foundation to build individualized exercise programs for clients and patients. I greatly appreciate her knowledge of safe techniques for my patients during and after their pregnancies. Even my male patients have benefited from some of the core stabilization exercises she covers. I really enjoyed expanding my exercise “toolbox” for my patients with this great course!” ~ Megan H. , Physical Therapist
“After using Lindsay’s DVDs during both of my high-risk pregnancies, getting into the best shape of my life, and becoming a group fitness instructor, I decided to get certified as a Prenatal & Postnatal Fitness Specialist through Moms into Fitness. Since I enjoy Lindsay’s videos and books so much, I was pleased to see that the certification contained in-depth information on the tips and techniques that I used to get my own body back. Both the manual and videos were easy to comprehend, while being grounded in up-to-date, ACOG-backed research. The quizzes were thorough and straightforward and tested your knowledge of the material in a practical way. Additionally, the case studies gave me the opportunity to critically think about the material and apply it to real-life situations. Now that I’m certified, I can’t wait to help other moms feel comfortable during pregnancy and after and to bring prenatal and postnatal fitness classes to my local health club. I may even start my own business someday!” ~ Jennifer H, Stay at Home Mom AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor | Prenatal & Postnatal Fitness Specialist | Certified CIZE Live Instructor | Marathoner
“I had been teaching Boot Camp for 11 years. I started before I became and mom and was so excited that I could work from 6-8am in the morning and make $60k a year. As my Boot Camps became more and more popular I noticed an influx of postnatal moms. I found I could help them lose weight, but and I didn’t know help them get a healthy core again. Lindsay’s 3 phase core recovery is just perfect – I use it for everybody. You wouldn’t believe the difference – I never knew 90% of people do crunches the wrong way and don’t know how to activate the deepest core muscle (I am included in this 90%). Needless to say I am confident in training moms now, we need customized exercises! And since completing the course, I introduced Stroller Pump. It is fantastic because Lindsay creates all the exercises for a pre and postnatal mom, so you don’t have to think!” ~ Elizabeth T., mom of 2, self-employed Boot Camp and Stroller Pump instructor
“I used Lindsay’s DVDs through all five of my pregnancies. And being in better shape now, than I ever was as an athlete in high school, I knew I wanted to help others like Lindsay helped me. I was a Stay at Home Mom with visions of “some day” doing something for myself. I always thought that “some day” would be after my youngest went to Kindergarten. Instead I enrolled in the course, planning to take it at my own pace. And within a weekend I had completed the course. I am planning on starting my own business and I found the Instructor Tools helpful in getting me started. Lindsay offers a play-by-play of her business and how she started. I feel confident and am really excited to get started!” ~ Jen W., Stay at Home Mom eager to start a business of my own and have something for me.
