Meet your Coach - Natasha Caleel CPT, MSc, HonsBKin
Founder of Fit Mama Santa Barbara
Hi! I'm Natasha. Your fitness pro and postpartum guru.
When I had my daughter in 2014 I experienced first hand how challenging it was to work exercise into my day. I had lingering pains and weakness from pregnancy and I realized that going back to my old gym routine wasn't an option at the time.
I've worked in the healthcare and wellness industry since graduating from Kinesiology in 2009. My work with women taught me that many workout programs ignore the issues that most new moms are faced with.
Not feeling like yourself in your own body affects your mood, self esteem, sex drive and motivation to get back into a routine.
I strive to help you love your body again and feel strong and ready to take on anything in life. Need to scoop up a screaming toddler or push a stroller up a steep hill? My programs will give you the ability and strength you need to know that you can handle it!
My education and expertise makes me best suited to address issues such as diastasis recti (ab separation), pelvic floor dysfunction, poor posture, nutrition concerns, and pregnancy related injuries.

OUR FITNESS PHILOSOPHY
Life is all about balance. So many fitness professionals overprescribe exercise and set unrealistic goals for their clients. I take the time to discuss what is important to you and how we can make that happen while leaving time for the other people in your life demanding your attention.
The one on one support will have you feeling valued and heard throughout the entire process. It's time to step up and start feeling strong and confident in your own skin again.
Workout Scheduler Set up your calendar by filling in your other commitments. I'll design your workouts and add them in.
Exercise Library Watch videos of me demonstrating all the exercises while providing helpful tips.
Zoom Meetings We can chat, work out, laugh, check in on your form and hold space to discuss your wins and struggles.
Progress Photos & Measurements Keep all your data in one place. Upload photos to the app so I can monitor progress and tweak your plan.
Nutritional Support Develop a plan, get meal ideas, set goals and stay accountable.
Constant Contact Message us with questions, feedback and to check in weekly on your progress. Expect to hear from me when you skip a few workouts!
What equipment do I need?
We work with whatever equipment you have. Only have dumbbells? Great! Your programs will include those. Need recommendations for what to buy for a home gym? I got you. Like to go to the gym but need a routine to do once you get there? No problem.
What is the cost?
During our consultation, we will decide what program will best help you reach your goals.
Do I have to be in California?
No! We work across timezones and as long as you have an internet connection you can access your workouts from anywhere.
Do I get access to you directly?
Yes! The value in this program is in your direct access to me, your coach to help you reach your goals and get the most out of the program. We will communicate over messages, zoom, phone calls, whatever is easiest for you. Our basic plan includes 1 check-in session/month (this can be a call, zoom, or text convo) and unlimited in-app messaging. Check-in on your goals, ask nutrition questions or get feedback on your workouts so we can make sure you are getting what you need.
What is the time commitment?
There is no time commitment, we simply ask that you give a month's notice to cancel. I recommend to most of my clients to mentally commit to 3 or 6 months to see positive change and establish good habits you can continue on your own.
What if I want to do other activities too? Do you have other things you like to do? I am all about variety and will work that into your program. Like to ride the bike or are training for a half marathon? I will design your program around these activities to make sure your workouts complement your training so you can avoid overtraining or injuries.
How will you help with my nutrition?
In our monthly check in's we will discuss nutrition goals, special concerns, and meal ideas. You will also receive our nutrition handbook and other helpful resources. I am all about making healthy eating work for you, so it is a positive addition to your life, not a burden. The best part? You have unlimited messaging throughout the month to ask questions and stay accountable to your plan.
To ensure you get the attention you deserve spots are limited to 10 clients each month. Please apply below to see if we are a good fit!
