I am Renata Sanko, personal trainer, certified postnatal specialist and a mum of four kids.
I have given birth four times in under 8 years, and I gained over 50 kg (110 lbs) during my pregnancies.
Before I decided to change my life and live a healthier and fulfilling life, I struggled really bad!
After my pregnancies, I faced horrible symptoms like leaking urine when jumping or sneezing. I even had to wear pads to get out of the house, I had severe back pain and mummy pouch that just wouldn’t go away.
My postpartum period was real torture.
I had a demanding baby, our breastfeeding journey was extremely challenging and I developed postnatal anxiety. Something, that apparently is not so much talked about.
I was living a real nightmare.
I gained weight, my symptoms were becoming worse and I felt massive mum guilt every time I said my kids I can’t play with them, run or jump on the trampoline.
I learned how to make excuses for my symptoms that were preventing me from being the mother I wanted to be…and the wife I once used to be.
I had 4 fingers wide Diastasis Recti and a huge mummy tummy and I was wearing pregnancy clothes.
I was wearing pads because I was afraid I would pee my pants in public.
I lied to my kids I can’t jump on the trampoline because I would pee myself every time I jump.
But one day I touched the ground when a friend of mine asked me if I’m expecting again…
It hit me so hard!
I knew I had to do something to change my life and to become the person I once was…
I started learning, researching and I made a decision to finally take my life in my own hands…
I soon realised that all of my symptoms were caused by a weak core and pelvic floor muscles and a 4 finger-wide Diastasis Recti.
I decided to improve my health and change my life!
And then, in less than a year I:
This is widening of a gap in your abdominal muscles and it is happening at Linea Alba, the connective tissue in the middle of the abdomen.
The tissue is widening and stretching and losing its elasticity.
Many exercises like crunches and sit-ups should be avoided when dealing with abdominal separation.
By doing this kind of exercises that many personal trainers and influencers recommend mums are only making their condition much worse!
Many mums also face symptoms like leaking urine when sneezing and coughing, incontinence, pressure down there, backache and bad posture.
They are not enjoying sex like they used to before kids!
This is often caused by Diastasis Recti.
Many mums don’t know there is a solution because no one told them! They don’t have to endure these symptoms.
It is never late to start healing!
There is so many wrong information out there and some you might even get them from your doctor.
Every new mum needs to recover her body after giving birth. Core Connect can help!
Multiple pregnancies can put significant pressure on our core muscles and they need to heal.
It doesn't matter how long ago you gave birth! Our muscles can always be healed.
Pregnancy can put a lot of pressure on our core muscles and exercises can help!
You will learn how your muscles function and why everything you tried so far had no positive results.
You will learn why Kegels are not effective and how to them properly so they become effective…
Kegel’s work, but not by performing them the way you were taught.
I will show you my unique four-phase program to connect your core and pelvic floor.
You can’t have functional and strong core and pelvic floor if your core is not connected with pelvic floor muscles.
These muscles are interconnected and achieving results while doing isolation exercises for core only or pelvic floor only will never happen. We need to work on them in synergy and make sure they are connected before trying to strengthen them.
Your muscles can work even if you are not aware of them working.
But it is important to prepare your body and your brain so it can work on your pelvic floor even when you are not consciously working on it.
This is the part of the puzzle that can make all the difference for women with pelvic issues.
You will get the 4-week CONNECT training program – this is a core exercise program that will help you connect your core and pelvic floor effectively.
We also work on your breathing technique here by doing stretches developed to stretch the abdominal wall and allow you a more effective breathing pattern.
And if you join now as a bonus you will get access to my exclusive digital course created to improve breathing patterns for postnatal mums that are often impacted by pregnancy and bad posture.
By improving your breathing patterns you can have a more effective core, back and pelvic muscles and less leaking and back pain.
When you join the Core Connect Program you will be accepted to our private community of mums where you will get education, exercises and guidance to help you jumpstart your progress.
You will get 4 weeks of specific core workouts – every week you will get a set of new core workouts. The workouts are progressive so you will progress too. They are done 5 times per week.
Each of the workouts includes 5 specific core exercises that you will repeat two times. You are guided through each movement so you can make sure you are performing it correctly.
Exercises are in guided follow-along video format with detailed but easy to follow instructions. You can also download a PDF summary.
The best part is, the workouts will take you only 20 minutes per day!
You will also get an educational course to help you better understand how your body works, how to correctly perform exercises, how to truly connect your core and pelvic floor for maximum results.
You will get instructional guides and videos so you are supported fully. You can download your schedule to stay accountable.
You will also be invited to join our private Facebook group for support and accountability where you can win some amazing prizes every month!
When you join the Core Connect Program you will get understating on why you were struggling in the past, supportive community and easy to follow exercises.
Nicole lost 9,5kg (21lbs) by using our method.
Core Connect is a 4-week program designed to strengthen the core and pelvic floor and teach mums how to use their muscles correctly.
If you follow the regular schedule, you will definitely see some progress and improvements on your body and core muscles, on your symptoms and Diastasis Recti.
The exact results that you will get depend on your starting position, genetics, and how regular you are with doing the program.
Keep in mind this is not a fat loss program so if you have additional weight to lose, check our 12-week program here.
The workouts are around 20 minutes long. I recommend that you do them 5 days per week, but you can also do them every day if you wish so.
The entire Core Connect Program can be done without buying any special equipment.
I do recommend to have a light resistance band and a small pilates ball but you won’t be missing out if you do everything with no equipment at all.
If you don’t have the light resistance band you can use a pair of old tights or leggings instead, and instead of pilates ball, you can use pillow or kids football ball.
No, Core Connect is a program you can do at home, no gym membership needed!
There is limited equipment needed but you can do it with no equipment at all and still get the results you want. It’s all up to you now!
Yes, it’s never too late to start healing your core. The core muscles work in a similar way as any other muscle in our body. Once we learn how to contract and relax them in a right way great things can happen. I will show you that here…
