Laura’s Story:

“I cannot say enough about the FIGR Pregnancy & Postpartum programs. I had a solid foundation from my in-person classes with Katelyn before I got pregnant, and I was able to safely continue my routine until delivery.

I started the FIGR Postpartum program when I was 6 weeks post c-section, and was shocked by how much I was able to do after such a big surgery. I love how the program focuses not on “snapping back” but on your overall health and building your strength back gradually and safely – and then the weight just comes off as a byproduct.

Now at 7 months PP I am feeling confident in the gym and my clothes! This program guides you in relearning your body after you have a baby – and I can honestly say I couldn’t have done it without FIGR!”

What You’ll Get:

12 Week Program Breakdown

The app will take you day-by-day through the following progression to help you recover your core & pelvic floor, build strength and endurance in the gym, and help you feel your best.

These first 3 weeks are a slow re-introduction to movement. It is safe for those just coming home for the hospital, and will still be beneficial for those a few weeks in.


  • Walking progression (7x/week)
  • 10 min prerecorded live stretch, mobility & breathing sessions (3x/week)

Here we start working on pelvic floor and core recovery, add in light body weight movement and continue our walking progression. All moves in this phase will be no more strenuous than day-to-day tasks and are safe to do before being cleared for exercise. If you had complications that you think may have implications for exercise, discuss with your provider before moving forward.

Week 6 will also include a few light dumbbell movements.


  • 5-10 min prerecorded live pelvic floor & deep core workouts (3x/week)
  • 15-30 min light body weight workouts (3x/week)
  • Continue with walk progression (4x/week)

We will progressively add in dumbbells, increase duration & play with different workout structures to reacclimate your body to regular exercise.

You will also have core workouts programmed to start building back core strength and stability safely & effectively.


  • 30-60 min dumbbell & body weight workouts (3x/week)
  • 5 min prerecorded live stretches (3x/week)
  • 8 min prerecorded live core workouts (3x/week)
  • 30 min steady state cardio (3x/week)

Workouts will continue to increase in intensity by varying exercise selection, structures, weights, pace, etc.

Core workouts will remain in your calendar to continue building core strength and stability.


  • 30-60 min dumbbell & body weight workouts (4x/week)
  • 5 min prerecorded live stretches (4x/week)
  • 8 min prerecorded live core workouts (4x/week)
  • 30 min steady state walking (2x/week)
Ellie’s Story:

“The FIGR postpartum program is amazing! I had some complications after my delivery and this program really helped ease back into moving my body.

It set a great foundation for me and now at 9 months postpartum I can do all of the things I was able to do in the gym before I got pregnant.

Thankful for how my body feels and for what FIGR has done for me!”

You CAN be strong again and you CAN feel confident in your skin after having a baby. 

And don’t let society or anyone else tell you otherwise.

Cris’s Story:

“I’m so glad to discover Katelyn’s postpartum program to help build my stamina and getting back into being active again after birth. I gained more than 25kg during the course of pregnancy, my core weakened, stamina level dropped drastically. Her program helped a new mother like me to kickstart a regime in baby steps.

I have ventured from a tiring 5 min slow walk around the block in the first week, to jogging, squats, lifting heavier kettlebells and more. Slow and easy and consistent. Her workouts are easy to execute.

I’m feeling great! Having dropped more than 20kg now (7 months postpartum) and still going.

Have confidence and peace of mind throughout your recovery.

Everything in this program is exactly what I did during my own postpartum journey. I would never offer something I wouldn’t do myself.

I did this so that you could have full confidence and peace of mind as you go through this stage of life yourself. Every day you’ll hit your workout knowing that what you’re doing is safe and appropriate for your own postpartum body.

Brittany’s Story:

“My recovery has been amazing this time around. I really wanted to get back in the swing of things quickly this time and this program has helped me do just that. It gives me something to look forward to every day and the app helps keep me motivated. I love being able to see a completed checklist at the end of the week.”

Jessica’s Story:

“I’m so damn thankful I had this program through two seasons of postpartum.
Life after a fresh baby is complicated enough, but being able to hit the timeout button and go to the gym with an exact plan of what to do, knowing it was serving my body best, was a mental savior for me!

I had always feared when people said “you’ll never get your body back after babies”… and Katelyn helped me prove that wrong!

I feel STRONG & CONFIDENT as a mama and love that I take my heath and fitness as a priority, instead of using kiddos as an excuse. Thankful for you and my hot mom muscle bod!”

FIGR:Postpartum is for every mom who wants to get back to their workouts and feel their best again. Even the moms that:

Jess’s Story:

“Fitness has always been important to me; needless to say I was excited that Katelyn launched the FIGR:Postpartum program a few weeks before my daughter was born.

I used the program from 4 days to 12 weeks postpartum and it became my “me time” during my maternity leave. Moving during my recovery helped me work through many pains as my body recovered and as I spent countless hours in odd ergonomic positions taking care of my baby. Further it helped me rebuild core and pelvic floor strength.

Having a well structured plan laid out for me during the “fourth trimester” was wonderful and I’d highly recommend it to anyone.”

Everything your postpartum body needs, at the exact time it needs it.

Postpartum recovery is all about PROGRESSION.

X Jump into something too soon and you risk injury and setback

X Wait to long and you miss out on optimal recovery

FIGR:Postpartum properly programs movement variety, duration, intensity, modifications, volume, rest intervals, weights & more at the exact point in your postpartum journey that your body needs it so you can recover stronger, safer and full of confidence.

Madi’s Story:

“I am currently loving the postpartum program! I had no idea where to start after having a baby but wanting to get back into shape. It’s been the perfect combination of getting a workout/sweat while letting my body slowly get back into normal workouts.

I know it’s a process to get back to my pre-pregnancy shape but I’m confident I can get there by following along with the FIGR programs and sticking with the FIGR community.”

You are not alone.

Postpartum is a wild ride, and you deserve to have people surrounding you who care and understand what you’re going through.

We are a team.

Erica’s Story:

“Katelyn taught me how to breathe and use my muscles in the correct way before each movement so it strengthens the area and I have less pain/discomfort. I feel pretty good now. Before I would be sore doing the dishes and now I’m not!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Week 0-5 movements are all body weight-based.

Weeks 6-12 will require light to moderate dumbbells, bands, and kettlebells. Kettlebell movements can easily be switched to dumbbell movements if needed.

This program is for anyone looking to get back to strength, functional fitness or high intensity workouts.

It is a 12 week progression that starts with simple stretching and ends with moderate intensity workouts, so any fitness level would benefit.

It is all up to your own comfort level when you choose to start the program. Most women, regardless of their delivery experience, would be able to start this program within a week or two of delivery.

Weeks 1-3 are 5-15 minute walks with light stretching, mobility & breathing “workouts” which are encouraged for all women right after delivery.

However, if you are unsure or don’t feel confident you’re ready, talk with your provider about what’s best for your situation.

Anyone at any stage postpartum will benefit from this programming.

Subscribe to FIGR:Postpartum 4-12 to start a little further down the road! The first 2 weeks may feel “slower” for you, since you’ll most likely already be cleared for exercise and can handle more stimulus, but going back to the bare basics and slowly taking your pelvic floor, core and body step by step through a structured progression will be extremely beneficial in the long run.

Additionally, in the app you can add in more stretches, pelvic floor & core work, or increase the duration of your walks during the first few weeks to add more volume to your day.

It is suggested that you are cleared by your doctor to workout before beginning any exercise program postpartum. 

However, if you are starting the program from week 1, all movements and activities (stretching and short walks) are safe and recommended for postpartum women prior to being cleared for full on exercise. 

If you just recently gave birth and are deciding when to start this program, consider:

  1. Your labor & delivery experience. If there were no complications and no c section, you could start the programming as early as the day you come home from the hospital. If you had a c section or other complication, I would recommend waiting 3 weeks or so (always dependent upon the individual) until starting. 
  2. Your mental state. If adding one more thing to your list (even if it’s healthy for you) will stress you out, then I recommend waiting until you are ready to start. This will look different for everyone. 

The first three weeks of programming are 5-15 minute walks each day and 10 minutes of stretching/breathing work 3 times per week, which are recommended for early postpartum mothers, so it truly will be dependent on the individual when they feel ready.

Yes. It is available on both devices. Additionally, anyone in the world can subscribe. 

If you are in a different country, only credit cards (not debit cards) are accepted in the payment portal.

About Me

Hello! I’m Katelyn Darkangelo, CPPC (certified pre and postnatal coach), creator of FIGR:Postpartum and founder of FIGR. I live in Brighton, MI, married my high school sweetheart, Anthony, and became a mom Thanksgiving Day on 11/25/21 when our sweet Amelia was born!

Fitness has always been my biggest obsession. I majored in Movement/Exercise Science from the University of Michigan in 2017, then earned my Master of Management from Duke University so I could turn my passion for fitness into a real business. I created FIGR, in 2018 and it’s been our full time career since 2019. Both my husband and I train clients in person and through the FIGR app to help bring elite fitness to everyone.

When I became pregnant, I got certified as a pre & postnatal fitness coach so I could apply everything I was learning to my own pregnant and postpartum body.

After having a short and smooth labor & delivery, and a perfectly healthy baby, all after lifting weights into the last days of my pregnancy, I knew I could help others and show that working out during pregnancy is one of the most important components to a healthy pregnancy.

In addition to my online programs, I also have in-person experience training pregnant and postpartum women, and I cannot wait to continue to help more in the years to come!
