TMM PODCAST EPISODE 026: Pelvic Floor and Core With Erica Ziel

Our core is the entire support system of our body. It surrounds our spine and pelvis and connects our upper and lower body. It plays a huge part in our daily activities, which is why it is crucial to strengthen it. You can achieve core strength by knowing proper breathing techniques and having the right mindset.

This week, we are joined by Erica Ziel. Erica is the founder of Core Athletica and Knocked-Up Fitness. She is also a sought-after expert in fitness-infused Pilates, fascial training, core, and pre/postnatal exercises. Her mission is to help women feel their absolute best throughout every stage of womanhood. Erica has been featured in and has contributed to several publications such as The New York Times, People.com, Pilates Style Magazine, Oxygen Magazine, and Fit Pregnancy, to name a few.
