\Tupler Technique

Pictures Speak!

Twins momma day 1

Same twins momma after 6 weeks!

This twins momma was having a rough time re-identifying with her VERY different  body after having twins.
She made big progress over the course of 6 weeks of Tupler Excercises, holding off on most other forms of exercise and with the help of wearing a diastasis rehab splint.

Workshop Client Results!

Client A
Her Story:
"I have one 3 y.o. girl who was 4lbs 14 oz, c section. I've been told I have diastasis recti.  I'm have a small build with a large abdomen. I have to wear big blousy shirts so people won't constantly ask me if I'm pregnant. I actually had a large abdomen prior to getting pathology."
 Day 1 (above), Day 14 (below)






Week 1

Week 4

From her chart, you can see she lost 3 inches at the belly button, and from the pictures, you can see in two weeks, her outtie went to a innie!
 Day 1 (above),  Day 15 (below)

She writes after attending my workshop:


Thank you for a life changing experience!

God Bless You,


Client B is 39 years old and has three children ages 7, 4 and 2.
Day 1 (above), Week 4 (below)

Her story:
"I have been doing ab exercises (tracey anderson being the latest one) and while the rest of me tones up great my stomach has been getting worse and worse.  Coupled with this I have been having terrible back problems.  An MRI revealed two herniated disks in my neck and stenosis of the spine.  I was suffering debilitating headaches due to the herniated disks.  I went to see an amazing manual physio here in Annapolis who spent quite a while getting my body realigned.  The pain has virtually disappeared which is great.   still feeling frustrated about my stomach I stumbled across Julie Tuplers book.  It seems like I found the final missing piece of the puzzle.  In fact I think that I may have been one of those children whose muscles never stitched together to start with.  I say this because I always stood with my stomach stuck out, and could never stand on both legs.  All of my children literally hung outside of my body.  I have a feeling that the root cause of my misalignment is my diastisis.  

As you can see, she had awesome results in her first 4 weeks of the program.

Client SR






Week 1





Week 4



Her gap did not seem wide to begin with, but it was signifigant for her. With the tupler techniqe exercises, she lost 4 inches at the belly button in 4 weeks.  She lost 2.5 off the top abs and 2 inches off the bottom.

Today's Before and After pics!

I hope to post more before and after pics so all of you can see the progress real people are making in my classes and with private training. Hmmm, maybe when I get much more efficient with my tablet I can make that happen!

Here is a client i saw today.  She has an adorable 16 month old.    This her change after two weeks!!! Rockin! She told me she didn't quite do all the exercises she was supposed to because she had a CRAZY two weeks.

She went from a 3 fingerwidth deep diastasis on top to .5 fingerwidths and shallow.  In the. Middle she went from 5.5 -6 very deep , to 2.5 deep, and on bottom she went from 2 deep to .5 shallow.  She came in at least two inches on top and 1 in the middle and 1 on bottom!

She said her husband has noticed and change and does not understand how things could change like that in two weeks

, her co-workers and even her ex-boyfriend's parents who she randomly bumped into at a restaurant noticed!  She is quite emotional and excited there is already a change for the better as this has affected many aspects of her life.
