Created by a postpartum fitness expert, MuTu System is an internationally acclaimed, holistic, realistic, and supportive exercise and recovery program for women who want their bodies to look, feel, and function better after having a baby. Many women try to coerce their post-baby body into submission with excessive exercise, but smart movement—specifically geared toward childbearing women—is the sensible choice. A 12-week online coaching program also available on DVD, MuTu System provides step-by-step instructions and exercises, in convenient 15- to 20-minute segments, to help women repair damage and build a strong, healthy, confident body after childbirth. It not only targets the core, thereby addressing the all-too-prevalent diastasis recti, but also strengthens the pelvic floor, essential for reproductive health and bladder and bowel continence. Whether you birthed your baby 6 weeks ago or 6 years ago, MuTu System can help you get your fitness back on track.
