Tatum Rebelle: Pre and Postnatal Fitness and Nutrition Expert
As a young trainer back in 2004, I had a client who wanted to exercise during her pregnancy. And, all I knew about prenatal exercise was to be fearful and careful. I called every local obstetrician’s office asking for a resource to learn how to create a safe prenatal workout, and came up with ZERO options!
Having recently lost my own mother to a preventable disease, I was discouraged by the lack of support. So, I decided that I would become a resource for moms myself. I began doing extensive research and was shocked to learn that the research negated everything I had previously heard. Women needed to know this stuff. I made it my mission to share what I was learning with others.
I feel very passionate about giving moms the education and support they need to stay fit and healthy — knowing that the benefits of exercise during and after pregnancy will have lasting effects on both moms and their babies. This is what keeps me motivated to reach as many women as possible with this powerful information.
A little bit about my fitness background and credentials:
I’m originally from Scottsdale, AZ, and currently reside in San Antonio, TX. I joined the Army at age 17 and served as a Drill Sergeant. Throughout my career I consistently received the highest fitness awards, including the best fitness score in Basic Training and Drill Sgt School, competing amongst mostly males. I was also chosen to represent my unit in an “Iron Soldier” competition. I’ve been featured in Fit Pregnancy Magazine and was chosen as one of “Austin’s Fittest” by Austin Fit Magazine.
My personal training certification is from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) as well as personal trainer and pre/postnatal fitness certifications from the American Council on Exercise (ACE). I studied Kinesiology and Communication at Texas Christian University receiving a Bachelor of Science degree, and also hold a Master’s degree in Business Administration. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Performance Psychology to better help women with both the mental and physical obstacles of living a healthy life.
I’m not your typical gym rat. In fact, I spend as little time in the gym as possible! I prefer to be outside and believe that it does not take much equipment to stay in great shape. Just a little knowledge about how the body works and some creativity.
