Hello World: Mother Earth Strength Intro!
I am very proud to announce the launch of my new business Mother Earth Strength!
My name is Tamara and I am a mother of an amazing daughter and wife to a wonderful husband. Motherhood has made me redefine myself, having to figure out who I was with a baby. Six weeks after having my daughter, I was told by my midwife that I was cleared for exercise. My daughter’s birth resulted in a c-section so I asked myself “Where do I begin?”. Even with my coaching and training background, I did not have the proper tools to start. Through trial and error, I found what worked for me but I craved formal training. So I set out on a quest to find my answers. I obtained my Pre and Post Natal Corrective Exercise certification from Fit for Birth and began to heal myself. Now I’ve ignited a passion to help train other prenatal and postpartum mothers to strengthen themselves and help their recovery be smooth and fun.
My journey into becoming the healthiest version of myself began many years ago though. Through my childhood, I was very sedentary and not at all an athlete. For the first time as an adult, I didn’t FEEL healthy, so I set out on a journey to feel better about myself. This journey included adjusting my nutrition and adding in exercise. I feel in love with the functionality of high intensity workout routines, specifically CrossFit. With my hard work I lost a significant amount of weight but more importantly gained my confidence back! I even took up competitive powerlifting and set State records in Florida. Although no longer competing, I have not lost my drive for weight lifting and my love of physical adventures.
Fast forward to present day and I cannot imagine my keeping up with my daughter feeling as unhealthy as I did before. Now, I am staying healthy as an example to her! Clean eating and movement are the pillars for being strong for my family. Staying active and teaching our daughter to love the outdoors is one of our family goals. I cannot wait to pass on the knowledge I’ve gained to help other moms get their strength back postartum as well as helping prenatal moms prep for childbirth. Pursuing teaching and helping strengthen women for motherhood is truly my passion and I cannot wait to share my love with all of you!
