Hey mama, you’ve got it going on—not only are you raising the next generation to be healthy, strong, and active-minded (both with themselves and the world), you’re juggling everything else, like your own personal needs, hobbies, interests, and wellbeing. The last part? Well, we can definitely help with that. It’s often tough staying healthy and fit when you’re so busy—plus, for all the new moms out there, you know there are very specific aches and pains that come from being a parent. We’re here to show you that not only can fitness be done, it can all be done with just a few tools and a few moves. All you have to do is show up!
SWEAT WITH US IN A GUIDED WORKOUT
Speaking of “all you have to do is show up,” this is literally that. We teamed up with Amanda Butler—TRX Instructor and master of all things mama—for a kickass workout in celebration of strong moms everywhere. Best part—it’ll always be here or on our Instagram (along with tons of other workouts and TRX tips) so you can go back to it again and again.

STRENGTHEN YOUR HIPS & GLUTES
Whether you’re a new mom or a long-time mom, 9 months of pregnancy and giving birth is pretty intense on your entire hip complex and sometimes it needs a little extra attention to get it strong again. Add on the fact that new moms often carry their super adorable babes on one hip and suddenly you wake up with back pain or even sciatica. The solution? Strengthen up that entire posterior chain—translation: your hips, hammies, and glutes. That’s why we’ve unveiled a completely new product: TRX® Glute Bands to power up every last move. They’re super soft to the touch thanks to a fabric blend, which means they won’t bunch up on leggings or pull hair when next to skin. 3 resistance options and an adjustable slider on each lets you customize the challenge to the level that works best for you.
HUG THE GLUTE BANDS AROUND YOUR KNEES AND PERFORM…
- Squats (pulsing up and down an inch adds to the burn)
- Glute Bridges (again, pulsing at the top is a real burner)
- Crab walks to build hip stability and endurance
- Fire hydrants really work that glute medius (read: your side booty)
UPPER BODY WORKOUTS FOR HEAVY LIFTING (LIKE YOUR KIDS)
It’s around the time you lift your kid for the hundredth time that you realize—wow, my bicep and shoulder are killing me. Or maybe it’s been years of busy-raising-the-kids and now you want to focus on building up that fitness that’s been on the backburner all this time. Whatever your reason, these upper body moves target your shoulders, biceps, triceps, traps—absolutely everything. Just hang up your TRX® Suspension Trainer (the HOME2 is great for those new to fitness; we recommend the PRO4 for someone more well-versed).
TRY THESE MOVES
CORE MOVES TO KEEP YOU STABLE AND CENTERED
The beauty of core strength is it goes beyond having defined abs and obliques—it’s also one of the best ways to improve your balance, posture, low back pain, and pelvic stability. When your entire core is strong and more resilient, it helps offload any stress on other muscles that tend to pick up the slack, like your back (and even your hip flexors).
MINI WORKOUT 1 (EASIER)
MINI WORKOUT 2 (MORE CHALLENGING)
New moms currently struggling with diastasis recti? No sweat—work on some pelvic floor and core strength with a physical therapist or your physician and you’ll be ready to tackle these moves in no time.

Helping you get strong and confident is our way of giving back to all the amazing women out there helping make the world a better place. So to moms everywhere, keep it up. You got this.
