I am a personal trainer and a menopause support practitioner (official in Feb 2023) as well as a passionate promoter of pelvic health. I use fitness and lifestyle coaching to help women prevent and overcome challenges like incontinence, organ prolapse, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, constipation, mood swings, weight gain and chronic back pain.
I have survived perimenopause and am thriving in menopause. I have experienced and overcome stress urinary incontinence. I have experienced a stage 2 uterine prolapse and healed it. I lived with a rectocele for 9 years and had surgery for it.
I know what it's like to have a body and especially pelvic floor that is consuming all of my thoughts, work, personal life, and how life altering it can be.
I also know that you can overcome your challenges. I have helped thousands of women including myself and I would love to help you too.
I invite you book a consult with me to get your questions answered and recommendations on how to best address your unique situation.
1 hour for $105 USD
Nothing is TMI in my world.
If you care about qualifications, here they are:
I hold a BA in Psychology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Health and Fitness. I am a Restorative Exercise Specialist™, a Menopause Support Practitioner in training (completing Jan 2023), a Certified Personal Trainer, a Certified Pre/Post Natal Fitness Consultant, and a Hypopressive Method trainer.
Who I Work With
Whether you are pregnant and wanting to prepare for birth, a new parent wanting to get back to running and weight lifting, approaching menopause or beyond, or even if you are deciding to go for a pelvic surgery...I can help.
I only work with women who are committed and ready to take action.
If you are ready to ditch the pads, eliminate your prolapse symptoms and get on with living your best life, then I invite you to book a consultation where I can give you advice, recommendations (that may or may not involve my programs and coaching) and get you clear on all the options you have to improve your pelvic health.
Let me help you avoid long wait times, confusion and costly appointments that leave you with more questions and no real direction.
I have been working with women individually for over 10 years now and I know what works. I have tailored my coaching to give you everything you need to ensure your success.
After the initial consult you have the option of booking in 1 hour sessions as needed ($105 USD).
You also have an option of booking a 2 hour session ($185 USD) to take a deeper dive into your personal situation.
The third option is a monthly accountability option that offers you an initial 2 hour call, unlimited email support over one month and a 30 minute wrap up call at the end of the month ($375 USD).

"Before I met Kim, I didn't think there was anything that could be done for the diastasis that resulted from pregnancy 18 years ago. As well, I thought that my active life and regular exercise routines could compensate for a weak core. In fact, quite the opposite is true - if you're not exercising correctly you're potentially exacerbating your weaknesses.
Since working with Kim I've learned so much that benefit women of any age. Now, I feel encouraged, inspired and motivated. Kim has such a lovely approach to educating us that will leave anyone feeling optimistic about their pelvic health and the opportunities to make small changes in our daily routines that will have a significant impact.
I recommend coaching because having one-on-one time with Kim allows her to personalize your training and exercises and she can customize your approach based on your individual needs. She has an amazing ability to make adaptations for any movement. Kim coaches from a whole body perspective and seamlessly transitions from advice on pelvic floor exercises into personal training instruction for cardio or weight training to yoga and meditation. She is a wealth of knowledge and her delivery is exceptional. It was an absolute pleasure to work with someone of her calibre as well as her kindness."
"When I sustained a third degree tear giving birth to my little girl earlier this year, I knew recovery would be long and tough. But I underestimated just how difficult it would be, even though I'd been proactive and found a pelvic floor physiotherapist months in advance. The first woman I saw was highly trained and highly respected in the area, and yet I struggled to connect with her methods for rehabilitation, and after more than six months still had to wear Depends every time I went for a run. There would be times I'd feel the urge to have a bowel movement just half a block from home after a leisurely walk with my daughter, and still wouldn't make it home in time. Each time it happened I was mortified and discouraged. I wondered if I'd ever be normal again. It was desperation that led me to Kim. To say she's changed my life is an understatement. She was thorough in her assessment, which she delivered in a kind and understanding manner, and I left her office feeling hope at last. The exercises she sent me home with were explained clearly, and were even kind of fun, which motivated me to keep doing them. It wasn't long before I started feeling the difference. Now, I can't remember the last time I wore a pair of Depends and I no longer live in fear of accidents. I won't say that I finally feel like I did before I gave birth because thanks to Kim, I feel better. You can bet I'll be singing her praises for a long, long time. Thank you, Kim. "
"Prior to pregnancy, I was an active, fit woman who enjoyed bootcamps, running, hiking, cycling, and many other sports. I knew pelvic floor fitness during pregnancy was important, and so I did Bellies Inc pre-partum core exercises - this was when I first heard of Kim. After all my preparation, you can imagine my horror to be diagnosed with a grade 3 bladder prolapse 4 months after delivering a small baby. To say I was devastated is an understatement. After 4 months of physiotherapy I finally go to a point where I wasn't experiencing symptoms every moment of every day, but I still wasn't where I wanted to be. Fortunately, a friend invited me to participate in a kegel mogo challenge, and that's where I learned that Kim is also a hypopressives certified trainer. I had heard about hypopressives, but didn't know much. 8 mths post partum I decided to commit, and started training with Kim. I couldn't believe the difference. After just two weeks I found a noticeable difference in my prolapse symptoms. Now at 13 months postpartum I am slowly reintroducing more intense exercise, I am wearing my baby 30 minutes a day, and I have returned to full time work, all without making my symptoms worse. In fact, most days I only notice my symptoms at the end of the day if I have done A LOT. I do my hypopressives daily (I've only missed 7 days since starting!), and I also continue to do the kegel challenge exercises (3 lifts and 2 releases) a day, and I keep getting stronger. In 2020 I will be returning to running too. Even my physiotherapist is surprised at how much I have improved with the hypopressives. Thank you Kim, you have given me back the feeling of "normal" again!"
