Running to the Core Podcast

Jul 20, 2020

Marietta Mehanni from Melbourne Victoria talks with Dianne about using the Gymstick as a tool for postnatal training and strengthening in returning to fitness and running. Resistance through the bands can be altered allowing levels of exercise challenge to fit the stage of recovery that a postnatal mum is at. The feeling of pull through the bands gives a whole body awareness when strengthening in a training session, while also giving mums permission to work at their own pace, according to their energy level on that day. Marietta runs classes from her home studios in Melbourne twice daily and also has a virtual class membership so classes are available at any time through

Marietta highlights some ways to help women move through the recovery journey, such as by using journalling, which can be for some women, likened to an athlete recovering from an injury.
