My name is Carolyn Tallents and I'm so excited to be working with The Fit Co team and launching MamaFit in Brooklyn. I am a health coach and personal trainer, specializing in pre and postnatal nutrition and fitness and also mom to 6 month old Charlie.
Soon after becoming pregnant with Charlie, I realized there was a huge need to support and educate women on having a healthy lifestyle throughout their pregnancy journey - from trying to conceive through to motherhood. I was at my first doctor's appointment and my OB gave me a list of foods NOT to eat and told me that whatever exercise I did before, I could do now. But I wanted to know what I SHOULD be eating to make sure my baby and I were getting the optimal nutrition and what exercises were the best for my continuously changing body. So I spent the remainder of my pregnancy learning how to eat well and exercise effectively for two, and built CLT Wellness as a platform to help others who want to do the same.
Now that I have a little one, staying active and meeting other moms has been a lifesaver both mentally and physically. What drew me to The Fit Co. is that I can do both of those things - and bring the baby along! So come on out to Brooklyn - I can promise you a good sweat and good company. I hope to see you all at a class soon!
