Being active throughout pregnancy is so important. The Socity of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada (SOGO) encourage women with uncomplicated pregnancies, in any trimester, to participate in regular aerobic and strength-conditioning exercises as a part of a healthy lifestyle. (SOGO, 2003)
4 weeks - 2 classes / week
Tuesday 6:00 PM
Saturday 10:00 AM
Each class is designed with pregnancy safe exercises.
We start each class with myofascial release using foam rollers and massage balls to help realease tension in the fascia due to poor posture and inflammation, which are both very common in pregnancy. Myofascial release will lead to better mobility throughout the workout improving muscle function.
Core Core & Kegels: Learn how to connect with your core in pregnancy. Have a better understanding on how your prenatal body changes in each trimester, and what you can do to prevent core dysfunctions like diastasis recti, low back pain or incontinence.
Strength and Cardio: Exercise focus on the posterior muscles to help improve posture. During pregnancy we put a lot of strain on our anterior muscles as our weight shifts forward due to the growing baby bump. At Fitness with Fetus we do exercises to help prevent rounded shoulders, lower back pain, and loss of glute activation to name a few. You will also learn exercises to prepare your body for labour and delivery.
Relaxation: Ending each class with stretch and relaxation to relieve stress and improve our mind and body.
