About Bria

I began my fitness journey with mothers in mind to provide prenatal and postpartum treatment with a holistic approach to fitness and whole-body solutions. Through my comprehensive coaching, I look to correct patterns that may be the cause of aches and pains so you not only feel confident, but live confidently with your body. As a health and wellness enthusiast, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and advice with those who are in need of change. Spending quality time with my family, playing tennis and biking along the lake front in my home city of Chicago are just a few ways I put into practice what I believe in. I also currently serve on the Auxiliary Board for ChildServ, a nonprofit organization, guiding our future leaders to move with a purpose.

I met Bria at a networking event and began training with her shortly after. I am 3 months postpartum and was super anxious to jump back into fitness. Bria really took her time to assess my current situation and made sure we corrected certain movements before we jumped into more challenging exercises. I appreciate that she specializes in prenatal and postpartum fitness because she definitely provided me with loads of info!

Not only did I get a great workout, I had alot of fun! Bria is very personable and knowledgeable and professional. I look forward to getting back into shape to keep up with my new little one!

So happy with my results! Besides feeling 100% comfortable with Bria, I have lost 10 pounds and don’t plan to stop. She is very personable. TWO THUMBS UP!


So glad to have found such a specified program during my pregnancy journey! I maintained a healthy and relatively fit lifestyle prior to my pregnancy and had some concerns on how that would be impacted. Through research, I found Redefined Core and was relieved to see that other moms had the same concerns. Even better, Bria took the time to create a program to meet my needs. We’ve had 2 sessions already and I am feeling confident about reaching the goals I’ve set postpartum.


My training sessions with Bria, has been nothing less than excellent. Bria is innovative, motivated and very knowledgable about health wellness and cross training. Since working with her, my core strength and energy levels have both increased dramatically. Bria is absolutely amazing!
