NEWS!! The Barbell Rehab Method Continuing Education Course
The first weekend of March, I attended a Continuing Education Course called the Barbell Rehab Method. This was right up my ally because who has gone through a workout without pain?? I surely have not! And I have yet to meet someone who has never had an injury. I was fortunate enough to work with not only Physical Therapists but also Physiotherapists! What a group it was! I was maybe one of 10 personal trainers/gym owners in the group, however I was the ONLY trainer that specialized in Pelvic Floor work and womens fitness. The collaborations were fantastic. I learned so much on how the body moves and how to resolve body pain without "resting". This really blended well with my current knowledge of how to modify for the pregnant and postpartum athlete! I am excited to say that I am now a certified representative for the Barbell Rehab Method! If you or someone you know is struggling with pain during or after workouts, contact me for your FREE 30 consultation!!

About the Owner
Lindsay Goats, PT, PP&A
Nine years ago, Lindsay & her husband were told they could not have kids of their own. Before trying the IVF route, as well as considering adoptions, they made a plan. The plan was to exhaust all other options. So when the two love birds were ready, they decided to start with lifestyle changes.
Lindsay had always been athletic, but as will life, health ebbed & flowed. Lindsay changed her diet, started exercising on her own, she stopped drinking alcohol completely, and poof! She and her husband were pregnant after six months. IT WORKED!
Throughout pregnancy, Lindsay continued to exercise and eat right, and pregnancy was great. However, during pregnancy she had lots of questions about what she could do and what she "should" do in the gym. Fast forward to postpartum, she was cleared, and the same questions popped up. What "SHOULD" she being doing? Her body was different, should her exercises be different? Because those questions went unanswered, that lead to urinary incontinence and pain in the 12 months of postpartum. She struggled with baby blues, postpartum depression and felt like she was lost. This got her to thinking...
IS THERE help after delivery? Was there a gym that could help transition her after pregnancy? Were there resources in one place to help her when she was no longer pregnant? So many questions went unanswered. She started reading and researching, & decided to take matters into her own hands. The Wellness Barn and Fitness was born…
After moving to Buffalo from Nashville to be with family, they found their home with an amazing barn that was large enough for a women’s family gym to help women navigate fitness after pregnancy; resources for doulas, physical therapists, counselors, nutrition, lactation consults; & access to beautiful gardens attached to gym for education and nutrition.
WE RISE TOGETHER.
I came to Lindsay at 22 weeks pregnant with my first. I immediately felt comfortable with her welcoming personality and superior knowledge. My mindset around working out in general has me excited to continue to make healthy choices even beyond pregnancy! The workouts are fun and made for all levels.

Lindsay took me from a hormonal postpartum mess and lifted me up, not only physically, but emotionally as well. She was positive, encouraging, organized, and knowledgeable. I trust her in getting me to a new postpartum body that will love!
