Pregnancy & New Moms

Pregnant?

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

  • Constipation relief

  • 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.

New Mom?

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!
