Your pregnancy and postpartum journey just got a whole lot clearer

Ready to return to exercise? With our 6-Phase approach, we will meet you exactly where you are at postpartum so you can return to your fitness routine with confidence.
After giving birth, returning to fitness can feel overwhelming
I had so many questions… What is safe for me to do? When is it safe? What can I and can’t I do in the weeks and early months after having a baby? Where do I even start?
With the combined support of a pelvic floor physiotherapist, Michelle, at Limitless Performance, has been able to guide my return to activity in a safe, gentle and supportive environment.
With an eye for detail, Michelle is wholeheartedly dedicated to ensuring movements are done properly. That means safely with proper pelvic floor and core engagement to ensure each session I am safely getting stronger.
I said to Michelle at the beginning of training with her that my goal was to be able to hike the mountains in BC carrying my 3.5 month old son. Michelle helped me achieve that goal.
I’m excited to continue to train with Michelle to not only recover and regain my physical strength from my pregnancy, but to become the healthiest, strongest mom I can be.
6 phase approach
We will meet you exactly where you are at in your Motherhood journey. With the little time you have, we guarantee to make each workout efficient and effective!
Getting started with postpartum movement can be a daunting task… Master the strategies in each phase and set yourself up for a lifetime of success.
This phase is your FOUNDATION to return to fitness. We master the Breathing, Posture and Movement Strategies and learn the different symptoms to be aware of in your postpartum body.
Focus on breathing through movements starting with body weight exercises and moving into light weights.
You will start adding more weight to your exercises and performing barbell movements.
In this phase you will add speed to your weighted exercises.
You will work on exercises used in sport such as jumping and running.

I'm Michelle de Jong
Pregnant and Postpartum women hold a special place in my heart and I am on a mission to support the growing number of women who want to train safely and effectively through their pregnancy and postpartum journeys.
After becoming a Mom myself, I realized the usual recommendations weren’t enough. I’m tire of hearing the “all clear” at 6 weeks without a thorough assessment and am looking forward to closing the gap between healthcare and fitness that can cause so much confusion!
Women deserve better.
We deserve a support system who will be there with us every step of the way. Looking forward to being a part of your team.
