Fit Mums Club; Pre and Post Natal Fitness Classes
Why exercise during pregnancy?
Exercise gets your blood flowing, which improves your blood circulation, helping you to avoid swelling. Getting your heartrate up will also help you to limit weight gain during your pregnancy, which will not only help you feel more comfortable, but according to studies it can also improve labour. By maintaining a level of fitness and keeping yourself active you will improve your mood, reduce fatigue and lay the foundations that enable you to get back in shape post pregnancy. I recommend coming to my class once a week and also encourage you go for walks when you can too.
Why exercise Post Natal?
You have carried a baby for 9 months, so your body has gone through some major changes and there are a few key areas we will focus on. These areas will include strengthening your core and pelvic floor muscles, as well as re-establishing posture alignment safely and effectively. We will also allow time at the end to cool down, stretch and even a little meditation to calm your mind for mental clarity before heading back to your hectic schedule.
Pre/Post Natal fitness has to be treated with care so it is important to exercise with a certified specialist in order to workout safely. There are limitations when it comes to exercise after having a baby, however when executed correctly our bodies are very capable of adapting. It just takes a little time, patience and understanding that you will have to go back to basics initially in order to excel further down the line.
I am a new mum of a little girl called Polly, so I am very aware of the impact of having children has on your life (and your body!) Finding the time for yourself can be tricky, but it is very important to give yourself a break. Focusing on your health and wellbeing not only makes you feel amazing but it directly impacts your baby too. You can be the best mum when you feel your best. When you join a class, you also get to meet other mums/mums-to-be, socialise with other like-minded women, and most importantly, have fun!
*To endure any exercise post pregnancy you must be given the all clear by your doctor. It is normally 6 weeks for vaginal births and 12 weeks for c-section.*
