I love nothing more than being (overly) prepared. But when it comes to surgery, you might only have a few procedures over your entire life.

Regardless of your surgical experience, your doctor (hopefully) has way more – which can sometimes put you at a disadvantage when you’re not sure what to even ask.

Many of the clients I work with have had surgery – whether they are building up strength to prepare or are looking to rebuild strength post-surgery. So when one of the Mavens shared her experience with surgery and how overwhelmed being “underprepared” felt, I knew an episode was in order.

If you’re thinking about surgery or taking care of someone who will – today’s episode is for you!

Movement Mavens is the only program of it’s kind that not only teaches you how to maintain your body and move well, but also helps you craft your personalized plan so you can build sustainable strength, consistently.
