Fit2Prokreate doesn’t just mean “fit” in the physical sense. We believe that mental and emotional fitness is balanced and strengthened through an active body. If you practice for the event, battle, gloriousness of birth, you’re preparing your body for the physical work it must endure to grow and bring that babe into the world. You’re introducing your mind to hard work, for learning pain thresholds and practicing calming breaths. You’re acting proactively, revolutionary. You’re preparing for whatever lies ahead in the unknown because revolution is about freedom. “Fit to Prokreate” is about the bigger picture of wellness, longevity, and the joy we seek from life. Hustling in daily life to being pregnant and bringing children into this world tests ours belief systems, amplifies our fears, cleans our perspectives, changes our relationship with ourselves and others. It is a life altering experience that is messy, raw, beautiful, chaotic, innate, fierce. And you don’t have to go it alone, I am here to help. Together, we will find creative ways around obstacles to discover unwavering strengths.
“Working with Colleen has been amazing. Most importantly it has taught me to be confident in my body and what it’s capable of before I give birth. Colleen is so thoughtful and trains you specifically for birth and beyond (like stabilizing/strengthening to carry the car seat!)."
Strength and conditioning is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to optimal health. How you move, what you put in/on/around your body, your sleep, your recovery, your stress levels (& what you do about them), your support team are all KEY components to a thriving life. Think of this service as creative, custom life hacking for pregnancy, labor, and postpartum so these transitions are as smooth and amazing as possible! We know it’s going to be new and uncomfortable but it doesn’t have to be a struggle. No more mediocrity. You deserve greatness.Learn More

Colleen also runs monthly Workshops. You’re Pregnant! Now What Do You Do For Exercise?! is to educate you as to what exercises are safe (and not so safe) during pregnancy, and to give you alternatives, so you can continue going to non-pregnancy classes if you wish, but also to understand better the physiological changes going on in your body. This is incredibly useful to those women who enjoy multiple activities or need to add a different type of movement to their routine!
Your First Weeks of New Mom Movement is focused on restorative movement immediately after birth 3-10 weeks or so. This workshop is especially useful for women in their 2nd/3rd trimesters so they know what to do postpartum. Beyond Core Restore, Next Steps for Returning to Exercise workshop is for women 10+ weeks postpartum who are getting ready to get back into their favorite exercise routines and need guidance on safe progressions.
Designed for women and couples who want something more personal, on their own schedule, or at their own intensity. If you’re having specific fertility complications, pregnancy pain/injury, or suffering from pain/injury as a new mom, private sessions are a perfect place for you.

This custom fitness option is perfect for you if you want to independently exercise with the oversight of a professional strength coach! The best of both worlds! It gives you the care and attention from me coupled with personalized remote programming delivered to your inbox for you to perform at home or your favorite gym.
It starts with 5 in-person personal training sessions to ensure you know how to perform exercises correctly, breath properly, are mechanically sound, and read programming. These first 5 sessions are important because I need to be confident in you’re ability to safely move on your own. If I don’t think you’re ready after 5 sessions, we will talk about moving forward with more in-person sessions. Your health is my number one priority.
After you finish with your in-person sessions, you’ll pay for monthly remote programming for as long as you desire. This is where I’ll create custom sessions for you to perform on your own. It will range from 2-3 sessions per week.
Included in your monthly payments, is 1 in-person personal training session each month to evaluate movements, intro new exercises, adding weight/intensity, and to simply catch up to see how it’s all going!
So, it looks like this:
5 personal training sessions –> monthly remote programming + 1 personal training session per month
"When I came to Colleen, I was at a very low point in my fertility experience. I was willing to try anything to work towards my dream of trying to become a Mother. When I walked into her studio, I felt compassion, energy, support and understanding coming from Colleen instantly. Soon after that first meeting, I stepped out of my comfort zone and put my trust in her belief in me. Colleen's wisdom about the female body and it's needs during fertility and pregnancy gave me the guidance that I needed to start believing in myself again after a very long and hard road. I was able to challenge myself in ways that I haven't done before, under her careful watch. I will always be grateful for her supportive leadership, her great sense of humor, her willingness to go above and beyond and her knowledge. A few months into my work with Colleen my wish came true, in part due to her work with me and my husband. I am now well into my first viable pregnancy and forever thankful for her willingness to pull me into my higher self!"
Colleen is amazing! I went to her after a bout with rhabdo and I've never looked back! Her workouts are challenging, but appropriate. I used to only run, but Colleen has turned me into a functional fitness queen! She is so understanding and caring too which is an awesome added benefit. Even though she's moved away from Rochester, NY, she continues to do an excellent job training me with her remote programming. I couldn't have made it through my rhabdo recovery, pregnancy, and postpartum period without her. I highly recommend her!
