Abby Kurtz is the owner and lead personal trainer with Pea in The Pod Fitness. She has been in the fitness industry since 2003. She has a B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
She has worked in a variety of settings including gyms, hospitals, and physical therapy offices. All of these experiences have led her to a greater knowledge of body mechanics and injury rehabilitation.
Abby discovered her passion for training prenatal and postpartum women in 2006. She particularly enjoys this group of women because they are very focused on health during this time of life.
It is an exciting group to work with, and it is extremely fulfilling to see them make it through pregnancy and beyond without the aches and pains that many women experience during this time. Abby finds it rewarding to be a small part of the whole process of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
Aside from enjoying what she does, Abby has stayed up-to-date on the latest information by taking continuing education courses on prenatal and postpartum exercise and by following the guidelines given by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Abby is also one of only eight licensed Tupler Technique® providers in the country and has been rigorously trained under Julie Tupler R.N.
