AB-EZE Story

Share this Post

As a 47-year-old mother of four children, I know all too well that even the best experiences in life can take a toll on our bodies. After the birth of my youngest child, I was left with four finger width diastasis recti and three epigastric hernias. The invasive surgery taken to correct them in June 2013 left me with significant core weakness. I could not contract my stomach muscles, and I had no sensation in my abdomen. As an experienced yoga teacher and personal trainer, this was particularly frustrating. The belly that had held so much joy and life was now numb—inside and out. My mind and body were literally disconnected. That is, until the summer of 2016.


I discovered the secret to restoring my core strength and rebuilding my mind/body connection in August 2016 while sailing on a catamaran with my husband, Josh. I call Josh the ‘catama-wrangler’ because he adjusts the lines for the mainsheet and jib like a rodeo cowboy, while I have the fun part of riding the hull up high in the trapeze harness. We were sailing along one windy day, and I leaned way back in the trapeze to keep the boat from flipping. That's when it happened... I felt my stomach muscles! Squealing with delight, I excitedly explained to Josh how I was able to engage my abdominal muscles in a way that had not been accessible for the past three years. Josh celebrated my enthusiasm and helped me to create a working AB-EZE prototype that mimicked the catamaran trapeze for use at home. He also came up with the name, AB-EZE, representing both the ease of use and inspiration derived from the trapeze. AB-EZE trapeze… Hey, that rhymes!!!


I am sharing my before and after pics so that you can see how AB-EZE has helped shape my body.
I am excited to help you reach your health goals.
