Teresa Waser – Equestrian Sport and CrossFit

Today I speak with Teresa Waser, a passionate educator driven to help healthcare and fitness professionals reignite their curiosity, challenge what they believe, and strive towards a truly biopsychosocial approach. She developed TIIPPSS-FC, a framework for creating change in how we help those with pain, pelvic health issues, and/or performance concerns. Teresa is a pelvic health and orthopedic physiotherapist, based out of RX Physiotherapy in Leduc, Canada, and has previously coached running, as well as CrossFit for kids through to older adults. She blends her experiences as physio, coach, and educator to help empower clinicians and clients alike to redefine their possible.  Teresa is also a mom of 3, including a set of twins.  She loves traveling, equestrian sport, and lifting heavyish barbells repeatedly.

-being active with diastases recti

-embracing uncertainty 

-sharing the journey 

-challenging what’s possible
