My name is Jaime Kemp and I am a certified Postnatal Fitness Specialist who teaches moms, in pregnancy and postpartum, how to be strong, confident and capable in their bodies no matter where they are in their fitness journey. I am married with two girls, ages 2.5 and 8 months, so life sure is busy!
I am a certified personal trainer specializing in postnatal fitness and excited to begin this work with you.
I have had a love of exercise and sports since I was a kid and I played sports in high school. After college, I started working with a trainer and that’s when I really got serious about things!
I entered a figure competition and ended up competing twice. Then I decided to become a personal trainer myself and learning to train in a healthier way with weights and the type of cardio I love, especially biking – road, mountain, snow – I love it all.
Then a big life change. Pregnancy!
Since I had no clue how to properly exercise in a way that would be safe, I found a professional kinesiologist specializing in pre and postnatal training. I learned what to do during pregnancy but what about postpartum? I needed to stay healthy for this little human that depended me for everything – how do I make time for exercise?
As I continued to work with my trainer, I discovered my own passion. This is what I want to do! I recertified my personal training and went on to take two more certifications specializing in training women postpartum. I love helping moms deal with all the changes that having a baby can bring.
Everyone’s story and normal is different and to allow ourselves to be comfortable in our ever-changing bodies and to appreciate not only what our bodies did by creating this amazing tiny human, but what they do for us daily. Movement is a way to honor that.
Having children is exhilarating and exhausting, the highest of highs and lowest of lows. To be able to work with moms to not just survive this time but thrive is my greatest joy.
