"From postpartum depression - to a strong confident mom and bikini competitor in under a year"
I AM KRISTINA POPOVA
When I first became a mother I doubted my ability to reach my fitness goals. From doubts about breast feeding, to the negative information on c-sections, to adjusting to being a parent - I was overwhelmed.My body had changed and going to the gym with a new born baby was not an option. I decided to ignore the negative information I read on the internet that lead to negative self-talk, and start my fitness journey. Starting with evening walks with my baby and healthy home made meals , I progressed to doing short workouts in my living room. By staying consistent, keeping my goals in mind and building confidence in myself, I successfully competed in my first major bikini competition just a few weeks before my baby’s first birthday.
It was during this time when I realized something that would change my life forever: being a mom and having a busy schedule did not need to be an obstacle that prevented me from becoming the person I wanted to. I educated myself on the human body, food & nutrition, and fitness, learning that anyone could get the body they wanted without requiring a fancy gym membership or complicated equipment.
I wanted to share my experience and all the things I had learned from my studies. I set out to create a program that will help others identify their own goals and formulate an achievable plan to get there. I want to teach others how they can train and eat properly, to gain the strength and confidence needed to achieve the fitness goals they’ve set for themselves.
