Leveling Up & Practicing Brave in Postpartum Coaching with Brianna Battles

Today I am speaking with Brianna Battles, the Founder of Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism. She teaches fitness coaches and practitioners how to understand the needs of their pregnant and postpartum clients (and sometimes their own bodies) so they can go out and be the expert in their community. As a strength and conditioning coach, she realized there was a need for more resources for pregnant and postpartum athletes. She believes the biggest impact can be had when coaches are trained how to help moms regain their athleticism and is doing that through her coaching certification. 

Brianna speaks how her experience as a mom and a coach has helped her reach coaches all over the world. You don’t want to miss this interview!
