    Comment:  Seconding (Thirding? Fourthing?) Rachel and Revolution Motherhood. Her Foundations class (with babies!) focuses on getting your core strength back, and then her Signatures class (sans babies) builds on that and really makes you sweat. In addition to the in-person classes, she has a series of videos that you can do at home whenever you have time or energy.

    Comment:  Revolution Motherhood! It’s a 12 week series. Not particularly aerobic but focused on rebuilding core strength in a very specific way that I found I needed before getting back to other exercise.

    Comment:  I would highly recommend Revolution Motherhood! It’s geared for postpartum, but very adaptable for prenatal. Rachel’s signature class on Sunday mornings is awesome!

    Comment:  I had a great experience with the Foundations class. Yes, it is as hard or easy as you make it. It’s also very educational - she teaches a lot about how the body works, which lets you take other classes with a sense of how to modify. Rachel is great and supportive, and the way she takes care of the babies during class is wonderful!

    Comment:  Rachel's classes are great! I did the Foundations program and it helped me get back into the groove and return to the workout activities that I loved pre baby. I will say I think the program is as hard or easy as you make it. There are on demand exercises you are supposed to do every day (I never did, and so I probably saw "results" less quickly than others). But honestly that wasn't what I was looking for at that stage of post partum recovery. I went to the class after Foundations and found it to be a good workout! So I wouldn't worry whatever your level is, I think there is something for everyone at Revolution Motherhood classes. Also it's so amazing to bring your baby with you - she takes such good care of the babes who need to be picked up or cuddled while you're getting in "you" time. I personally was afraid to pick up the same movements I had done before pregnancy since I had taken a hiatus and had a c-section, so the class helped me to regain my confidence and to work with my new body. It's excellent.

    Comment:  I second revolution motherhood. I finished the 12 week foundation class and really liked it as it focused on recovering from giving birth and progressed in intensity each class. The instructor was always available in person or by email for questions. I also loved the at home videos that i could do on my own. While taking the class I started running as well (which I did pre-baby) and I credit the class in making me feel strong enough to do that and in helping me transition back to running safely. I also saw a PT recommended by the instructor for stomach separation.

    Comment:  On the Park Slope parent fitness group, someone recommended revolution motherhood. I just started the 12-week foundations program, but she also has on demand video classes and weekly signature workouts that are drop in.https://www.revolutionmotherhood.com/So far I like the foundations program -- right now it feels a bit more like physical therapy than a workout. We have a soft foam roller and do rolling moves and it's a lot about mind-body awareness. In my pre-baby life I would have wanted something more hardcore, but this feels like the right approach to getting my strength back in a safe way post-baby.

    Comment:  In case there are any mothers (at any post partum stage from 6 weeks to 6 years or more) out there looking for a really effective and enjoyable class, I want to recommend a class I've been going to in Spoke the Hub. It's sort of a mix of PT/Melt/yoga/pilates by a highly experienced and well-informed instructor, who is also a mother herself. Rachel was first recommended to me by my midwife.I have no affiliation whatsoever. I just love the class and I have signed up for a second term.If anyone's interested, you can find out more here:WWW.rachelannewelch.com/revolution-motherhood/

    Comment:  Another shout out for Revolution Motherhood! I took Rachel’s 12 week Foundations class this fall and it was a great way to safely get moving again after having a baby. I started the class at ~8 weeks postpartum and Rachel really takes the time to get to know everyone in the class and provide specific modifications based on your recovery/fitness needs and goals. It is a very supportive environment and Rachel is so accessible and available for questions and support, even outside of class. I definitely recommend if you are looking to get back to working out after baby but not exactly sure where to start or what to do!

    Comment:  I have seen a number of people posting recently looking for recommendations for dealing with diastasis and other post-partum fitness issues. I wanted to recommend Rachel Welch's program to those of you looking to restore your fitness levels post partum (or frankly at any point after childbirth, even years later). Rachel's post-natal fitness program is amazing to rehabilitate the core, and focus on anchoring the mind and the rest of the body in what can be a difficult period. She works specifically with healing diastasis, pelvic pain and other post-baby injuries.Rachel is smart, loving, intuitive and will push in the right ways to help you - the program is so personalized even in a group setting. Even my baby is in love with Rachel - pre-crawlers can come to classes and Rachel attends to even the most fussy babies lovingly as she also leads class. The community of moms is also amazing, and I always feel 150% better after class even if I've gotten no sleep or am run down beforehand. There are also videos that accompany the classwork so there's always an option to keep up with the program. I honestly don't know what I would have done without it - I was so terrified and unsure of how to begin moving again after giving birth this Summer.

    Comment:  I was able to get rid of it by doing the Revolution Motherhood program with Rachel Welch. Highly recommend! Her Foundations series is taken by a lot of postpartum moms but I got a ton out of it and my kids are in elementary school. She also has a harder/sweatier class called Integration that is a great workout.She teaches at Spoke the Hub and also at a studio in Dumbo, and there are videos you do as homework (but you can do as little or as much as you can fit in). Rachel is a lovely person, funny and smart and she is a busy local mom with 2 young kids so totally gets the challenge of trying to fit it all in. I believe the first class is either free or $20, either way, it's worth checking out.She has a Facebook group too- Revolution Motherhood.
