Pre and Post Natal Fitness

As pregnancy progresses, the body begins to undergo a host of physical changes as a way to accommodate the growing baby. More specifically, as the uterus grows, a woman’s center of gravity begins to shift. Further, the pelvic floor takes on additional stress as the baby’s weight increases, and joints begin to loosen in response to hormones. All of these physiological changes make good posture, cardiovascular health, and strength crucial to a healthy and comfortable pregnancy.

A number of recent studies have shown a significant number of benefits that come with remaining fit during pregnancy. Mothers who focus on total body wellness during pregnancy ofter have fewer complications during the third trimester and delivery, have a much easier time with labor, and heal faster after pregnancy.

Prenatal exercising during pregnancy can not only improve the mother's over all health, but can benefit the unborn child in a variety of ways as well. Babies born from mothers who remain fit during pregnancy often have:
  • Higher physical scores at birth
  • Higher intelligence scores
  • Generally require fewer medical interventions during delivery
Pregnant women who enjoy a well balanced exercise routine can experience increased flexibility, improved circulation, lower levels of fatigue, increased energy levels, and stronger muscles that will better withstand the trials of labor.


Stay in awesome shape during and after your pregnancy.  Many people are advised by their doctors to rest during pregnancy or stay off their feet and take it easy.  For most woman this is a scary thing to do as we all know that we will be gaining weight during the pregnancy.

A woman should only gain approximately 25-35 pounds during pregnancy. Many woman gain 60 plus pounds during pregnancy and this is for two reasons;

1) Not exercising during pregnancy

2) Over eating during pregnancy

We only need an additional 300 calories during pregnancy. Think about how easy it is to consume over 300 calories.

The problem with gaining all this unhealthy weight during pregnancy is, once the weight is on, it will be that much harder to lose it with a baby to take care of, limited time in the day and our hormones being off balance.

Our Approach Training

We offers a unique approach to prenatal fitness which includes a variety of moderate prenatal exercises that are designed to be both safe and effective for the expectant mother
For example core strengthening and strength 

building Prenatal exercises like Pilates and prenatal yoga assist the mother-to-be with developing better posture and balance. In addition, these types of exercises can assist with the relief of back pain that is commonly associated with pregnancy.


Benefits of Pilates

To help strengthen the deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Strength in these areas is known as ‘core stability’. These exercises can be performed in positions that are suitable for women at all stages of pregnancy. 


Benefits of Yoga

Learn how to breathe deeply and consciously relax, which will be helpful as you face the physical demands of labor, birth, and new motherhood. 

Both types of exercise can also assist the expectant mother in maintaining a healthy pregnancy weight and help to eliminate some of the postnatal weight many mothers experience. Your prenatal personal trainer will also be able to assist you with learning and practicing relaxation exercises. These prenatal exercises are designed to assist you with being able to relax and focus during labor. Studies have shown that pregnant women who learn and practice these exercises regularly during pregnancy are less likely to need medications during the birthing process.

In addition, the chances of developing complications that require surgical intervention are much lower when the pregnant mother has exercised and remained fit during her pregnancy.
