Can you tell me more about your Pre/ Post Natal Classes?

Our BodyPre/Post Natal classes are designed to be safe for pregnancy/ post and its associated conditions, including pelvic girdle pain (pelvic instability) and gestational diabetes. Our classes allow you to control the intensity you work at meaning you are able to target your fitness level.

Why should I exercise when pregnant?

  • Improved energy levels and sense of well being
  • Decreased aches and pains
  • Improved ‘fitness’ for the physical demands of labour
  • Faster post natal recovery
  • Higher self esteem

What do I need to think about when exercising when pregnant?

  • Avoid raising your body temperature too high. You don’ t want to be sweating too much and in warm weather scale back the intensity of your exercise.
  • You can push yourself during some forms of exercise but don’t exercise to the point of exhaustion.
  • When doing strength/weight training, choose a lower weight that usual and aim to keep your repetitions higher than usual (15-20 reps).
  • If you are feeling ill or too run down on a particular day, let your body rest and skip your scheduled workout, or complete it later that day when your feeling better.
  • Make sure to listen to your body! If you are feeling low on energy and don’t feel like exercising that day, have a rest day
  • If you were already exercising before you were pregnant , that’s great, but don’t increase the intensity of your current training regime. While you are pregnant, you should try and keep your intensity no higher than 75% of your maximum.
  • If you are ever unsure about a certain exercise or your current training program ask your trainer and speak with your doctor or midwife before continuing your exercise.

When can I start exercising after I have my baby?

Our BodyPre/Post Natal classes are designed to help you return to your pre-pregnancy fitness and get back into shape. Generally, most new mothers can commence exercise 6-12 weeks post-birth, however we always recommend you check with your doctor before commencing any exercise program. We are required to have clearance from your doctor prior to taking part in the classes.

Can I bring my baby to the classes?

Yes! You are more than welcome to bring your baby with you. Whilst we will do our best to incorporate your baby during the fitness classes, it is your responsibility to look after your baby when needed without disruption to the class.
