Alyssa Crawford -- Mother of one tough girl

Alyssa Crawford joined Danielle’s Coremom team in 2018 after working in postpartum fitness for two years. She became a certified Group Fitness Instructor back in 2016. With exclusive one-on-one training from Danielle, Alyssa upped her game with an incredible amount of knowledge and strategies. Additionally, Alyssa earned the certification in Applied Functional Science from the Gray Institute. This education allowed her to understand the amazing complexities of the human body through movement and how the parts of the body are all interconnected. Alyssa has a passion to help moms understand what’s going on in their bodies on a deeper level. She works hard to explain the connection between the pelvic floor and three-dimensional core in a way that everyone can understand. Alyssa struggled with postpartum depression and anxiety after the birth of her daughter, Josie, in 2013 so she has a very real understanding of the emotional and physiological needs of new mothers.

Pre and Post Natal Fitness and the Dedication to Overall Wellbein

Coremom classes include a variety of fitness formats, from TRX, Barre, Resistance training, corrective exercise and the use of Pelvicore Balls to strengthen the pelvic floor and core.  We are dedicated to making expectant and new mothers stronger.

Shoutout to Danielle, Alyssa, and Marcy [pelvic floor PT] for the smooth recovery I've had after giving birth to baby #2. It feels like such a relief to have a team of knowledgeable women to help this postpartum mama. I get to go to a gym where I know everything I am doing is safe for my recovering body, plus Addy gets to join me. Danielle and Alyssa are so friendly and knowledgeable AND they will even snuggle Addy if she gets grumpy so I can get a good workout. My DR has gone from 4/5cm to 1.5/2cm in 5 months!!!! Honestly Marcy, Alyssa, and Danielle have been game changers for me, I feel so lucky. Every mom should have these resources
Alyssa is very informative. She taught me so much about the core and pelvic floor. She is very patient and explains everything in detail. I did a few sessions with her and then she developed an at home workout for me that is very easy to follow. I feel like I am already seeing results and it has only been a month. I would highly recommend Alyssa!


Is it safe to exercise during pregnancy? Get the Answer and other answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

Around 6 weeks postpartum you will have a follow up appointment with your OB. At that time, your doctor should give you clearance to resume exercise if you are ready.  Your Dr. will let you know also if it is safe to exercise during pregnancy.

Coremom classes are safer and more effective for new mothers and pregnant women because our trainers are all  pre and postnatal certified. These instructors understand which exercises should be avoided and which exercises actually benefit this population and make pregnancy symptoms and childbirth easier, and recovery faster.

Many new mothers want to target their abdominal muscles right away after giving birth. This is the most obvious area affected by pregnancy. There is a safe way to approach this gentle rehabilitation of the muscles. Do not rush into any exercise program that includes abdominal exercises like abdominal crunches or prolonged planking. Avoid exercises where there is sudden twisting or jumping, especially for the first 3 months post pregnancy.

Diastasis Recti or “DR” is a condition where the connective tissue (lines alba) that brings both sides of the abdominals together, separates causing a “bulge” in the middle of the abdomen. The answer is “yes” you should exercise to help remedy the separation. We will test you for DR and all of our classes will include exercises designed to rehabilitate the DR and close the gap.

Exercising prior and during pregnancy is ideal to build strength before your body undergoes significant physical and physiological changes, however, it is recommended by American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to exercise during pregnancy barring any existing medical issues or pregnancy contraindications.

Exercise during pregnancy has many benefits. The first one being consistent exercise reduces pregnancy induced symptoms like nausea, constipation, fatigue, sciatica, and DR. Second, consistent exercise helps women control their weight gain and bloods sugar levels during pregnancy making them less likely to develop gestational diabetes. Third, women are more likely to have an easier delivery and recovery as a result of consistent exercise. Finally, exercise improves womens mental state and hormonal regulation by reducing the chance of depression during and after childbirth.

Being a new mom is a complete change for all women where they have to adjust to a new way of life around baby’s needs and schedule. Going though 9 months of pregnancy and childbirth is traumatic on the body and requires gentle affective exercises to help a woman lose the pregnancy weight, become stronger and function better as a mother. Engaging in regular exercise classes with other mothers is also therapeutic for many mothers. The ability to exercise amongst women who are going through similar issues, helps add support to many mothers. Also, most  classes are baby friendly, so this gives moms one less thing to worry about with childcare for their infant.

I always reassure women, that babies will cry during class and as we are all mothers, everyone is always sympathetic. The instructors are trained to help calm and soothe the baby so the mother can exercise. It is recommended you bring a stroller, car seat, blanket and a any carrier to class. Don’t forget a bottle, pacifier or toys to help make your baby comfortable. Generally, babies are really easy going in class and are either sleeping or distracted by the stimulation of the other babies.

Small group exercise class sizes range form 5 to 14 ladies depending on the format of the class.

Classes are offered every day of the week (including weekends). Most classes are late morning to lunchtime. If these times are not suitable to your schedule, private training offers more flexibility in scheduling. We are always open to adding classes at additional times, of there is enough interest (at least 4-5 people).

The postpartum period according to World Health organization is only 6 weeks long. This is the time it takes women just to recover from pregnancy. Changes occur in the body for up to 12 months after delivery depending on nursing and other factors. Some women take classes all the way up to 24 months post pregnancy because they enjoy the level of intensity and connection. Babies from 6 weeks to mobile babies (8-9 months) are welcome in class. Mothers are always welcome without babies if they prefer.

Small group training gives moms the ability to exercise in a group of other moms at set times in a variety of formats throughout the week. Private training is more personalized where the client meets individually with the trainer so the trainer has the ability to customize the workout based on clients goals and needs. Private training offers more flexibility with scheduling and includes a nutrition program to help expedite results. Included at the end of each training session is a manual stretching /corrective exercises to again assist in recovery. Depending on your availability or budget, small group training or private training might be better suited for you
