Their goal is to create space for you to learn about your body, heal, and get you back to meeting your goals and living your best life. No one should live with what we call “normal” when there is help. Both in-person and virtual options are available.

Glutes and Gains
Glutes & Gains is a strength training and educational program with a pelvic health flare designed by a pelvic health physical therapist (Dr. Jen Morgan) and strength/conditioning coach (Nick Morgan). Glutes and Gains started as a passion project, where Nick was programming for Jen, and she would make tweaks to support her pelvic health (i.e., unilateral loading, hip mobility, glute-centric work); it turned into a 6-month beta test as they were talking to friends and Dr. Jen was talking to current and previous clients. It was noted that many individuals do not know where to start with a strength training program. There is a lot of fear and misinformation about lifting and pelvic health concerns like leaking, prolapse, pelvic pain, etc. Now that Glutes & Gains has been launched to the public, their goal is to take the guesswork and fear out of movement. There are three main aspects to the G&G program; the strength training program, the weekly educational emails, and the additional individualized support if needed. This program can be utilized at home or in the gym and is designed for everyone who wants to improve their strength.
