Pregnancy & New Moms
Invest in yourself and your baby! By staying active throughout your pregnancy, you can return to your pre-pregnancy weight/fitness level (or surpass it!) through regular weight and cardiovascular training.
During pregnancy this approach can provide:
Increased energy levels and improved mood
Alleviation of back pain and discomfort due to postural changes
Lowered risk of gestational diabetes and excessive weight gain
A more comfortable labor and delivery process
Reduced likelihood of delivery interventions (c-section/forceps delivery)
Increased cardiovascular capacity of the fetus/baby
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Collage of Sports Medicine (CDC-ACSM) recommend 30 minutes or more of moderate intensity physical activity on most, preferably all days of the week for pregnant women.
For a new mother, finding the time and energy for exercise can seem impossible. A customized postpartum fitness program can transform a mother’s physical and mental health after delivery by helping her
Cope with the many stresses involved in this new and exciting phase of life
Reduce anxiety and insomnia
Improve sleeping patterns
Potentially lower the risk of depression
Return your body to its pre-pregnant weight
Train you to be monkey-bar-ready by the time your child is!
