NOW ACCEPTING NEW PERSONAL TRAINING CLIENTS!!!!
Sometimes we just need that 1:1 attention to get started on your health journey or if you are pregnant, postpartum or just need the ins and outs of exercising. Personal training is a great way to get in depth explanations of the "why","when" & "how" what we do for exercising. This is also a great option if you already belong to a gym and need help with preparing yourself for delivery and postpartum recovery. Give me a call to set your free 30 minute consultation, available through Zoom or in person. Let me help guide you in this stage of life called Motherhood!!
PostPartum 8 Week Return to Fitness Program
Its been a long time coming but my Return to Fitness Program is NOW COMPLETE! I wanted to create a take home program for moms to use after being cleared from the doctors office. We do not get guidance on what to do after doctor clearance. We are told to do what we have always done or nothing at all. This program is designed to take things slow after delivery, concentrating on strengthening your core and easing back into the gym. It is designed for Diastsis Recti issues, pelvic floor strengthening, and over all recovery workouts to get your stronger than you were before pregnancy. I have worked hard on asking the questions and getting Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist approval for a program that is easy to follow and that you can easily build upon for a price you can afford. Go to "Services" to request your copy to get you started on a stronger you!

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!
