This week on The We Podcast, my guest is Kate Johnson. Originally from Delaware, Kate now calls Greeley, CO home along with her husband of 10 years and their two energetic, yet adorable young boys who are 5 and 1. She loves living in Greeley because of the people, the delicious craft brews, and the ability to travel between the mountains and eastern plains.
After working in the Corporate world for 8 years, Kate became a CrossFit coach 3.5 years ago. She loves working with people to find their strengths, gain confidence, and reach their goals. As a result of her own experience with a difficult delivery as well as pelvic floor issues, Kate is passionate about working with pregnant and postpartum women to help educate, empower, and support them as they navigate this chapter of life.
She is a Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach and has worked with some of the best fitness professionals and physical therapists in the world to better educate and understand considerations for women in all stages of life. Kate started her business, TulaFit, earlier this year and offers educational workshops in conjunction with local Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists, as well as consultations, private coaching, and online programming.
During the interview we may say the V- word (hint hint… vagina) a few times so if that offends you don’t listen! We chat about lots of things that mamas need to know post pregnancy. This is stuff that’s got to be normalized in conversations. Not only between women but with health care providers and anyone who is on a women’s team to success and ultimate health in every area. Our bodies are beautiful gifts and not something we should be ashamed to speak about. If that’s the case, we will never get to optimal functioning. Thank you for speaking it out loud and proud Kate! We all benefit from you taking a less than ideal situation and using it to live your passion!
