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. You DO NOT need to be an advanced athlete to be involved with Hatch. You just need to have an interest in functional fitness and high intensity training.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Womens health physio-led programming from a coach, athlete and mama who's been through it all. This is something that's been so under-provided for - until now. We're up to date with the very latest research and are highly experienced in working with pre and postnatal functional fitness athletes.
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.
I want to start by extending a warm welcome to you. I'm Kat, womens health physio, CrossFit® athlete and coach, and most importantly, a mama.
As women, we are fitter than ever before and it's so great that in recent years fit pregnancies have become more mainstream. But the guidelines have struggled to keep up. This has meant that female athletes who do functional fitness, CrossFit®, weightlifting and HIIT are being very underprovided for in terms of programming, advice and support. Until now.
I created Hatch because it's something I desperately needed in my pregnancies. 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 physical and mental health.
I have combined over 12 years clinical experience as a physio and trainer to bring you the latest, research-based programming and courses for your pre and postnatal journeys. I have also ensured there is a community of likeminded athletes there to support you through this season.
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.
We support you from the inside out, providing you not only with resources for rebuilding your strength physically, but mentally too...
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."
