Interviewed by Denny on the DizRuns podcast!

Find out how Sarah Brown kept her core strong, how she did with the ReCORE Drop Test and was able to train through pregnancy, recover with the FITsplint and her journey to the Olympic Trials postpartum.

"Having a safe postpartum core routine helped me rebuild stability and get back to running with out complications!" - Neely Spence Gracey - pro runner for Adidas
"...and at home each night I did
30-40 mins of core training designed by Celeste Goodson from ReCore. I’ll be writing another blog devoted to this and my DR." - Stephanie Bruce, professional runner, Olympic Trials qualifier
"...went to pee AGAIN and remembered my #FITsplint that I hand't quite fit into yet, it made a world of difference, so much so that I wanted to see if my "speed" legs were still there-ish...- -Alysia Montano, 2012 Olympian and 7 time USA Champion
"Get down to the #CORE of it! Working on rebuilding my core with the support of my #FITsplint Thanks @MomBodFitness"
-Sarah Brown @SarahMB15 Professional Runner, Olympic Trials 2016
"I highly recommend ReCORE for all post-partum women. My only regret is that I had known about it before my 3rd child. 3-pregnancies (& c-sections) in less than 4 years really left me with tremendous core weakness and moderate ab separation. ReCORE offers a progressive stabilization program to retrain your muscles. Celeste is knowledgeable & encouraging. After 6-weeks, I feel stronger and can feel my core engaged. I have much more work to do to reach my ultimate goals, but I have a strong foundation to work from" - Anne, ReCORE client
"I'm a pelvic floor physical therapist and regularly recommend your FITsplint product to clients postpartum. I am currently pregnant myself and this weekend ended up sustaining a significant diastasis recti after a violent stomach bug with lots of vomitting. I had bad upper abdominal pain with walking, transitioning motions. I put on one of the pregnancy splints and had almost immediate 80% relief of pain all day yesterday. Today, I am completely pain free. I can't believe it! I have always recommended your product but am truly amazed at the difference it made so quickly. Thank you! I can't tell you how much my quality of life has changed in 24 hours."
-Christina, PT, DPT, ATC, LAT

"ReCORE was exactly what I needed to get back to the high intensity workouts I love. As an athlete and first time mom I wanted to go 0-60 (but know better), and ReCORE was the perfect way to stay active and working toward my goals without overdoing it. Thank-you for helping me gain my strength and body back!!" - Lauren @sissfit
"I just wanted to tell you that this [Maternity FITsplint] is hands down the BEST device I have come across for pregnancy. I have tried everything out there for my patients and this is my go to device." - Dr. Yvette, Bay Shore Wellness
I am SO thankful I purchased my FITsplint maternity band early on in my pregnancy. I have found it to be a "must have" item and have recommended it to many other friends. I found it useful early on in the first trimester for lower belly/bladder support and now that I am in my third trimester I am wearing it every single day to help lift and support my big baby belly! It really helps me, I wouldn't be without it. -Hannah
