“In the absence of a Service-wide conditioning/reconditioning program for Airmen who are pre/post-partum, the Air Force relied on the education/training outlined in the Catherine Cram’s hand-outs and online resources. The materials provided by Ms. Cram provided standardized and evidence-based information, which was essential in the program development of the AF programs.”

“I had the amazing opportunity to not only attend, but to host Catherine's training for her comprehensive course, Prenatal & Postpartum Exercise Design. Attendees left feeling prepared to dispel the common myths and misconceptions regarding exercise during pregnancy and postpartum, prepared to modify for common aches/pains and well aware of their professional responsibilities. I have implemented so much of what we learned into practice and continue to rely on the course to guide me in my practice. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to truly fortify their knowledge base and confidence level!”
