This means that I am trained to understand how the body functions and to ensure that you are moving in the safest and most effective ways customized to you. In my fitness journey I have coached professional dancers, executives, corporate clients, and people just getting into movement and fitness for the first time.
My obsession with women's health specifically all started when I found out I was pregnant. I was determined to have a “fit pregnancy” and I wanted to prove to myself that I could stay active and strong during my entire pregnancy.
However, when I started to feel the changes happening in my body (tight back, pain in pelvis, hamstring pain, the list goes on, as all you mamas know) I didn’t really know how to modify and adjust my strategy.
I was supposed to know what to do—after all, I had been telling pregnant women in my classes how to modify for years.. But now, as a pregnant woman, I realized that all of the general modifications that I had been teaching to my students were too vague and didn’t provide the student context as to why they were modifying. I couldn’t even plank the way I was "supposed to". I’m a fitness professional, but why can’t I do this?
After a difficult labor and eventual C-Section (read my full pregnancy and delivery journey) I’m still learning about the body and all that it goes through during pregnancy. My story and experiences are what drove me to want to help women like you and to create MillyGreyMovement.com
