Welcome

I help moms get back to running successfully after having their baby without pain, injury or pelvic floor issues.

I coach new and experienced Moms to step back into running successfully, without pelvic floor dysfunction, pain or discomfort. If you’re a tired, busy mom who wants to get back into running so you can feel like your old self, book a Return to Run Planning Session.

Hey there Mama, I’m Rachel Pope.

PHYSICAL THERAPIST | LONG-TIME DISTANCE RUNNER | MAMA OF 3 

Trying to manage little ones and exercise can be overwhelming with your limited time, but it doesn’t have to be.

Your time as a Mom is precious. That’s why prioritizing your health and well-being is so essential. When you feel strong, confident and pain-free, you and your family benefit from that!

Yet, you still worry about your time and energy. 

As of this writing, my kids are 20, 3 and 1, so I understand how busy life can be. I can also tell you how much more enjoyable life becomes when you take action in favour of your health.

Through deliberate action, I’ve prioritized my running while raising my children from infant to toddler through to teenager. So, whatever stage of motherhood you’re in, I’ve been there, and I can help you through it.

I know what it’s like firsthand. It can be so frustrating when all you want to do is to go for a run, but your body just won’t cooperate or isn’t ready. I’ve certainly run the gamut of being angry, disappointed and just sad at my postpartum body for not being able to do what I wanted it to.

As a physical therapist, I value research and education. All of my recommendations and exercises are research-based, supported in the current guidelines and literature. That way, my clients are always up-to-date on what the BEST way to rehab is. Further, I am currently in the process of becoming a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist so that I better support my clients through their rehab sooner, allowing them to get back into running successfully! 

Over the course of my career, I have helped countless moms regain their confidence and strength while eliminating their pain so they can get back to doing what they love. It’s my passion.

Restoring your core and pelvic floor doesn’t have to be complicated or lengthy to get back to running postpartum.

I want all moms, regardless of where you are on your postpartum journey or stage of motherhood, to be able to get back to running pain free and without pelvic floor issues!

More than anything, I want you to get stronger and be more confident in your postpartum body so that you can get back to running and become a better version of yourself.
