    Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism™ is a power packed, online certification course that will up level your coaching skills and dramatically improve your ability to support pregnant and postpartum athletes.

    Pregnant and postpartum athletes are NOT a special population.

    We believe that an athlete is any person who pursues fitness across a spectrum of interest and ability. (So yes, you do coach athletes).

    The majority of women who enjoy exercise will become pregnant at some point and need a coach who knows how to guide them through that chapter and as they continue their athletic endeavors.

    Athletes need a coach who gets them, and is willing to work WITH them, not just offer generic messaging and exercise modifications.

    It's more than just exercise modifications...

    Exercise modifications are a great start for coaching pregnant and postpartum athletes, but coaches also need context to know why they are suggesting a modification, and when they should implement it.

    We KNOW that generalizations and extremes do not teach, yet that’s all women are being offered during this time in their life from their Doctor, friends and social media.

    Pregnant and postpartum athletes need a coach who understands and respects their mindset, goals, body, beliefs and concerns about their training now and long term.

    If a coach can properly support a high level athlete, they should also be able to coach a mom who wants to workout a couple days a week and lift her kids without discomfort.

    The problem is, there is no basic education about pregnancy and postpartum (nevertheless how it applies to athletes) in our coaching, training, exercise science or kinesiology curriculum.

    We also recognize the significant positive upswing in people looking to become coaches, so that they can be the coach they wish they would have had.

    Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism is a power packed, online certification course that will up level your coaching skills and dramatically improve your ability to support pregnant and postpartum athletes.

    "I have taken other pregnancy and postpartum courses, but I quickly learned that I wasn't fully prepared to coach this population. Brianna's course changed that for me. Her evidence based information filled in a lot of missing pieces and helped me gain confidence in my coaching abilities. I have been able to reach so many women, collaborate with other amazing professionals, and have a few big projects in the works with organizations specifically because of the level of knowledge that I gained in this course. I'm so glad I found Bri and this supportive community."

    There’s a time and place for listening to your own body, but pregnant and postpartum athletes often don’t know what to listen for during this unique chapter of their lives. Misguidance can lead to unintentional injury and/or performance impairments postpartum - as a coach, you can help prevent this.

    We don’t expect other athletes to know proper form or technique when they’re just starting out - working with this subset of athletes shouldn’t be any different. Their needs analysis has significantly changed but their desire to keep training has not - they need a coach who understands that and can help them through it.

    And maybe you’ve already taken other courses in this realm that speak to WHY pregnant and postpartum athletes should do things differently, but left you with little to no strategy on HOW to apply the new knowledge in your practice...

    Here, you’ll get a well-rounded education on both.

    If you want a successful practice that helps women thrive through all chapters of their athleticism, it’s time to get serious about becoming a trustworthy coach who knows how to help them.

    As someone who’s been in the strength, conditioning industry for over 10 years, I know the importance of offering each and every client quality guidance that’s safe and fully grounded in evidence-based theory.

    And as someone who specializes in coaching pregnant and postpartum athletes and coaches around the world, I want to help you connect and change the messaging and guidance, while growing your business and income.

    "Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism with Brianna Battles has changed the course of my life. It has changed the vision I have for my business and it is actually what pushed me to open my own business. I am so passionate about this and it is the change that is needed for women from everyday health into fitness.

    The lack of knowledge around a woman's body during pregnancy and postpartum was truly shocking to me when I found myself pregnant in 2017. So the search began to find what was suitable for me to continue working out safety. As a crossfit coach myself I knew that the women in my gym were watching me and wanting to see what I did during my pregnancy. Like any coach, we want to deliver the safest and best information to our clients and I was defeated by the fact that there was much at all. Enter Brianna Battles. I was so excited to find her course and her information, it was and is exactly what is needed. So from there I wanted to share my personal experience and what I have learned as a P&PA coach with women in my community and really anyone who is listening!"

      I’m Brianna Battles, Founder and CEO of Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism ™ . I created this movement after the birth of my first son, when I realized my approach as an athlete, and my knowledge as a coach was off base. There were two approaches to training during pregnancy, one was the conservative recommendations (yoga, don’t lift over 20lbs, etc), and the other was “be a badass!” and “train for birth.” As an athlete and coach, I of course gravitated to the later. I thought I knew enough and felt fine physically and mentally in how I went about my training.

      After I had my son, I was desperate to get back into my training, routine and lifestyle, but I slowly began realizing that this was much different than I anticipated, and all of the generalizations I was given significantly lacked context. I pushed myself mentally and physically and thought I was doing what was “best” and “right,” especially as an experienced athlete and coach.

      I spent the next few years diving into women’s health information, research and networking with like-hearted professionals, combining that with the fundamentals of exercise science. I rehabbed, learned from multiple professionals and invested in continuing education opportunities. I implemented a different mindset and tactical approach, which allowed me to coach high level/professional athletes and experience testing these methods and all-encompassing game plan through pregnancy and postpartum.

      After coaching thousands of pregnant and postpartum athletes both online and in my local community, I knew I would have the most reach by educating coaching professionals to do the same with their unique effort.

      "I initially took the course when it first launched 2 years ago because I was a newly postpartum athlete trying to figure things out- i wanted to know more about how to truly function as an athlete, navigate my Diastasis Recti and incontinence, and to finally have a support system in place with professionals who understood.

      “Practicing brave” and investing in myself that day two years ago was scary, exciting and life changing- dramatic words maybe but so very real.

      I never thought two years ago I’d be sitting here as a business owner, planning consultation calls with women halfway around the world, speaking with elite CrossFit boxes about hosting workshops, working with Regionals athletes With Diastasis in cycling toes to bars, and helping women who just want to pick up their kids without pain. I never would have dreamed that the people in this program would become some of my closest friends and peers. All I had wanted was to get back to doing what i loved- which i am by the way- but on that I found my path in doing what I love."
