We can help you stay healthy during pregnancy and recover quickly after delivery.
Are you expecting or planning on having a baby? First things first, check with your healthcare provider. It is now known that exercising up to 30-minutes a day before and during pregnancy has so many benefits, here are just a few:
Pregnancy comes with gaining weight, but you can gain less weight, while still gaining enough to have a healthy baby. Research shows that women who exercised regularly gained on average, 7-fewer pounds than those who didn’t. Eating enough calories during your pregnancy, especially while working out, is important. Drink water before, during, and after exercising to avoid becoming dehydrated, which can lead to a reduced amount of blood reaching the placenta. Dehydration can also increase your risk of overheating and lead to contractions. Learning to eat correctly before you become pregnant will help those habits carry through your pregnancy, helping you and your new baby.
Balance & stability.
Exercising while pregnant is not about playing contact sports. Maintaining balance and stability is part of working with a personal trainer. You’ll be guided through your exercise plan, ensuring you are using proper movements throughout the program as your body goes through so many changes.
No guarantees, but having a strong core and fit cardiovascular system may help make the labor and delivery faster and easier.
There’s a long list of benefits from working with personal trainers who have helped several women before, during, and after delivery.
With so many changes happening so fast, it’s important to know how to go through each stage. You’ll need to warm up before working out, not just jump in. Increase your heart rate slowly so your body is ready for movement to avoid muscle and ligament strain. You need to know when you can no longer lie flat on your back during your exercise.
Creating these habits before becoming pregnant can help keep your energy up during pregnancy, and maintain a safe fitness plan. That and communicating with your doctor during your pregnancy, will help ensure safe activity and a healthy baby.
