“I have been doing the Belle Method and Bump Method classes (and videos) for over three years, through varying phases of my life, and two babies later. With my background being in exercise science, I was impressed by the method upon my first class as each workout was unique, thoughtfully planned, executed and contained balanced and efficient exercises. An amazing workout that helps align, strengthen and stretch! Whether you are just getting started on your fitness journey, are looking to balance out your current regime, are pregnant or getting back in shape postpartum or are looking for an extra challenge in your already fit lifestyle, the Belle and Bump Method classes will meet you where you are.”

“I started doing The Bump Method program during my 5th pregnancy. I did all the core and pelvic floor exercises throughout pregnancy and postpartum. I felt strong the entire time and recovered faster than with any of my other pregnancies - and bonus, I can jump on the trampoline with my 5 kiddos without any accidents!”
