Lindsay’s prenatal and postnatal exercise 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!
