DESIGNED FOR THE STRONG MAMA
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT?
You're used to lifting heavier loads than the average mama. You're also likely to have a higher level of baseline fitness, which although you're postpartum, needs to be taken into consideration with your rehab.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Programming for an athletic mama who is at one of the most physically and mentally vulnerable stages of her life takes a certain level of skill. You're in a unique position therefore you need a very unique program.
YOUR FITNESS LEVEL
You're used to lifting weight - squatting, pressing and deadlifting with a barbell. You're used to movements such as thrusters and cleans, snatches. You attended a gym 4/5 x week prior to pregnancy, and are happy to commit to 3 active training days now you've had your bub.
I want to start by extending a warm welcome to you. I'm Kat, physio, CrossFit athlete and coach, and most importantly, a mama.
Women are fitter than ever before but, naturally, we're still having babies! I created Hatch because a program like this was so needed in the world of high intensity sport and there simply wasn't enough out there when I had my son. I was used to pushing hard and lifting heavy, and knew I needed something very comprehensive if I was going to return to my sport competitively with bulletproof pelvic health.
There was no reliable, high-quality programme that offered training for the mind and body for the athletic population, so I decided to create it. I have combined over 11 years clinical experience as a neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapist with my experience as a trainer, athlete and new-mum. Hatch is the product of deep collaboration, research and study alongside women's health physiotherapists and specialists in the UK and Australia. We have also worked closely with sports psychologists and we continue to develop and grow on a continuum.
If you're anything like me, you need something trustworthy but also engaging. A program that understands the nature of high intensity sport, but also the postpartum body. Hatch offers a system that is ideally suited for the healing postpartum body, the athletic body and the mind. We support you from the inside out, providing you not only with resources for rebuilding your strength physically, but mentally too... because let's be honest new motherhood is CRAZY!
I know there's a whole community of women out there needing this. You're in the right place, and I’m so grateful that you’re here.
I would definitely recommend Hatch Athletic. The program is really well structured, building from a body check-in and builds to get a sweat on and get the endorphins flowing. Each exercise is well explained and the focus on the pelvic floor throughout really highlights Kat's unique experience and expertise as an athlete, physio and mum. Importantly, I have found it easy to fit the sessions into my week and it's building my confidence returning to exercise.

"I'm convinced this is the first step on the way back to regular CrossFit program, classes or even the competition floor."
-Ursula Fasel, CrossFit Games Athlete 2017 & 2019, Switzerland
"Hatch is a comprehensive programme for new mums to safely return to exercise after having a baby. Kat's programme is invaluable! I send all my CrossFit mums to her. With a background in physio and CrossFit, and first hand experience of the postpartum process, she is the best person to safely guide athletic women back into exercise."
- Sophie Lax, Women's & Pelvic Health Physiotherapist & Co-Owner of Unity Studios, NZ
"This program is a wonderful resource for any female wishing to start or return to weightlifting, CrossFit or functional fitness after having a baby. The app is easy to follow, the program is well written and the demonstrations and advice are spot on."
