Bio

I have been empowering women to come alive to their full potential through exercise and nutrition for over 12 years. I love working with women! I especially love mothers and mothers-to-be! Their strength is inspiring!

About Pea in the Pod Fitness

Pea in the Pod Fitness is a mobile, women's-only personal training business. We are located in greater Indianapolis. We come to you! We service Carmel, Nora, Broad Ripple, and downtown areas.

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.

What really sets Abby apart from other trainers is her passion and concern for her clients. Her client's goals are her goals. She challenges her clients to reach higher and won't allow them to settle, while at the same time she has a great ability to connect with each individual client and meet them where they are.

Additionally, Abby finds it is extremely fulfilling to work with women who have unique fitness needs, such as prenatal and postnatal women, and mothers. She loves using exercise to help them make it through pregnancy and beyond. Abby finds it rewarding to be a small part of the whole process of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. She especially enjoys releasing women from the "mommy-guilt" associated with taking time for themselves and strives to help women trouble-shoot and create flexible fitness plans that meet the unique and often unpredictable demands of motherhood.

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’s stats:

Education: B.S in Kinesiology – University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Certifications: ACE certified Personal Trainer, Nutrition Specialist
Specialties: Prenatal and Postnatal, diastase recti rehabilitation, breast cancer, and Seniors

    I’ve been working with Abby for a few months, both as a coach and as a personal trainer. The differences I see in myself, both mentally and physically are a direct result of her work. The coaching was the foundation I needed to move into a more structured exercise routine. You don’t have to spend more than 5 minutes with Abby to know that she is an expert in her field. Abby makes sure you are progressing, but you know all along that she personally wants to see you succeed, whatever success means for you. She has my complete trust and confidence… I find it liberating to be in a workout where I don’t have to do anything more than listen to what I’m being told and do it. Anyone that has the opportunity to work with Abby should absolutely do it—highly recommended! -Amy T. Pendleton, IN
