We make athletic mamas strong again
Welcome to HATCH
"The best decision I made for my postpartum body was joining Hatch. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity and helping me get back into CrossFit! I loved the program and was excited to do every workout.
Your program not only gave me the knowledge and support I needed, but it was honestly the one thing that I looked forward to even when I was feeling down or stressed. For that I will be forever grateful."

Is this for me?
Hatch 'Athletic' means you're used to lifting weight - squatting, pressing and deadlifting with a barbell. You're also used to functional fitness movements such as thrusters and cleans, snatches. You're used to attending a gym 4-5 times prior to being pregnant, and are happy to commit to 3 active training days now you've had your bub.
and...you’re READY to get back in the game.
"I loved the consistency & variation - plus not shying away from strength building. I also loved that it was slowly progressive & loved 3 part structure for fitting around an unpredictable baby."

"After pregnancy I was desperate to get back to training but also knew the importance of being sensible and building back up, especially after an emergency c-section. I'd heard horror stories of women wetting themselves every time they ran or jumped and didn’t want to be in this boat - I love a double under! The problem was I had no idea how to build back up. That’s when I found Hatch! I started the program at 7 weeks postpartum and would absolutely recommended it.
The site is easy to use (a big plus for a technophobe like me!) and the program is really simple to follow. I really enjoyed the workouts and am very happy to say there has been no leaking!! I completely trust Kat and the Hatch program. I will definitely be doing it again if and when we have any more children."

Hi I'm Kat
A CrossFit athlete and coach, a physiotherapist and, most importantly a mama.
I created Hatch Athletic because 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, so I decided to create it myself.
I wanted to produce a science-based 12-week programme that felt authentic and real in its approach and led by an athletic mama who has experienced it all.
Welcome to the community of Strong Mamas.

Hatch Athletic is a breath of fresh air compared to other postpartum training programs. It’s developed for those who have trained in high level sport not just CrossFit. It’s a very clear and concise graduated guide to return to high level fitness. They have worked closely with women’s health physiotherapists to develop an outstanding program for athletic mums. I wish it had been out when I had my son.

Hatch Athletic 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. I’ll definitely be recommending this program to all my pregnant patients to help with their return to activity after their baby.
