The fitness guru opened up about her postpartum struggles, admitting “it’s not easy” in a raw and candid video shared with fans.
Tiffiny Hall broke down in tears describing the ‘pressure’ she feels after giving birth, saying: ‘It’s not easy’.
The fitness specialist recently welcomed daughter Vada, her second child with husband Ed Kavalee. She is also the mother of a son Arnold, 4 years old.
In a moving video released, the 37-year-old described looking at her “new body” and struggling to accept that it would “take time” to recover.
“It’s not easy,” she began in an Instagram story shared on Friday.
“I’m standing in front of my mirror, looking at my new body with my big bump, Vada’s house, and it’s really hard to accept that it’s going to take time.”

As the tears began to flow, Tiff explained that she felt “super emotional” but acknowledged that “healing takes time”.
“It also depends on the birth you had,” she added.
“I have a few stitches and all that and it’s a little painful.
“But she is absolutely gorgeous. She is worth it.
Tiff – a former Biggest Loser trainer – also shared a powerful video of her postpartum body to 228,000 followers with the hashtag “#bounceforward”.
“1 week postpartum with Vada,” she captioned the short clip that went from her heavily pregnant baby bump to her belly a week after giving birth, cradling newborn Vada in her arms. .
Tiff coined the term “bounce back” after having son Arnold in 2017 to help raise awareness of the social pressures on mums to “bounce back” after giving birth.
Since having Vada on May 30, she has spoken of sharing her struggles, most recently discussing the “4th trimester”, the name given to the first few months after giving birth.
“Back from the hospital with Vada. Juggling postpartum recovery, nurturing the sibling relationship so no one feels left out, sleep deprivation and food,” she wrote on Sunday.
“Let the 4th trimester begin. Washing can wait! Advices ? »
Fans raved about the fitness guru – who owns fitness app MYTXO – thanking the star for being “raw” and “real” with them.
“Love the raw, how real this pic is ️ you look fantastic Tiff,” one wrote.
“So beautiful to see what it really looks like, thanks for sharing with us,” said another.
“So beautiful thank you for sharing the real genuine truth,” someone else added.
the old The Biggest Loser Coach gained 30kg during her first pregnancy and felt overwhelmed that she was expected to ‘bounce back’ within weeks of her son’s arrival.
But she refused to listen to the noise and instead chose to “take his time” – then created a new program on its fitness app MYTXO, specially designed for moms.
“To be honest, I didn’t want to bounce back from having a baby,” Tiff told news.com.au in March 2019.
“Crash diets and the damage they can have on the body and on emotional and mental well-being are not good for new moms.”
Tiff explained that she took it “very slowly” after giving birth, which was not what people expected from the fitness expert.
“It could have harmed my business because it changed my image and all that. But I didn’t care. I wanted to properly rehabilitate my body after the trauma of birth,” she said.
“It was never about a bikini body for me.”
Tiff also gave a TEDx conference in Sydney on “Bounce Back” in February 2019 and is dedicated to helping women feel confident and strong.
Last month, Tiff posed with her baby bump on the cover of Women’s Health, photographed when she was 26 weeks pregnant. At the time, Tiff said she felt “honored and empowered to be the first pregnant woman to ever grace a @womenshealthaus magazine cover”, writing that it was once “taboo to show your bump”.
“In my 20 years of experience in the health and fitness industry, I’ve seen it evolve into a landscape that now embraces the beauty of pregnancy as well as postpartum bodies,” he said. -she writes on Instagram.
“It used to be taboo to show off your belly in tight clothes – let alone a bare belly – or even like I did…exercise and stay active while pregnant.
“I am proud of my strong pregnant body and believe that a woman’s ever-evolving bump and body should be celebrated in all its glory at every shape, size and stage of life.”
She is too living with a long-term illness after revealing she had been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) – a blood pressure condition which in his case is genetic – in April last year.
“It was hard to come to terms with and honestly it felt like the bottom line at times,” she explained at the time.
“While I remain positive, recovery is difficult and will require pausing for a little while to recover. It’s one of the hardest decisions, but I have to practice what I teach. .and I hope to be back in no time.
