Finding a Pregnancy Workout Trainer Will Be the Best Investment You'll Make in Your Health as well as Your Baby's Health!

A Pregnancy Workout Trainer Can Help Ensure That You and Your Baby are as Healthy and Fit as Possible Throughout Each Trimester

If you're interested in finding a pregnancy workout trainer, I'm your lady! I have been trained in Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise and I love to create plans for women for the first, second and third trimesters. I provide program design services as well as regular personal training sessions meaning that we check in more frequently.

Pregnancy Can Be a Confusing Time for a lot of Women, Both for the Fit and for the Not-So-Fit. I'm here to help.

There are so many contradicting  messages out there about what pregnant women can and can't do for exercise. The truth is, it's a huge grey area that even doctors can find confusing or overwhelming which is why a lot of them just say that you can  continue to do what you were doing  for as long as you feel good. This advice may work fine for some women, but it sells a lot  of other women short - and it could also be too much  for other women. The fact is, it's just not that simple.

Did you know that very few pregnant women meet the minimum recommended amount of physical activity?1 The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recommends that pregnant women engage in 30 min of physical activity at least 5 days per week. Not being active enough actually affects more woman than being too active or overdoing it.

Studies have shown that babies born to mothers who meet the minimum recommended physical activity for pregnant women are also healthier and have larger newborns with less body fat. Furthermore, moderate exercise increasted fetoplacental growth rate as early as 20 weeks, and the placenta had significantly more volume. 2

It's critical that you set your pregnancy up for success by working on breathing patterns that will help you carry your baby the most comfortably and increase your odds for a drama-free delivery. These simple techniques can make a world of difference. Learning pressure management is also crucial and will pay dividends on your due date to ensure the smoothest day possible.

The healthy breathing and lifting patterns that you will learn during pregnancy will be very similar to what you'll need to know postpartum, too!

As you progress your way through pregnancy, of course you may need to cut down on your intensity of exercise. However, by using a pregnancy workout trainer you'll  be confident that you are walking the line between doing too much and not doing  enough. You won't have to second-guess yourself anymore. Your pregnancy workout trainer will also know what various symptoms you may experience mean, and  when medical care is  warrented. All of this will give you so much peace of mind!

Having a pregnancy workout trainer will also help you stay motivated. Let's face it - as pregnancy progresses, working out isn't always the most appealing! However, by having your pregnancy workout trainer checking in, you will be able to stay motivated and on track.

A pregnancy workout trainer can help with specialized workouts as well if you do develop pain during your pregnancy - something that is unfortunately super common. But we know a lot of tips and tricks that will help alleviate your suffering for things like sore SI joints and SPD pain.

Even if you have been pregnant before, it's important to realize that each pregancy can be very, very different. Oftentimes women struggle more by their second or third pregnancy. This is super normal! However, again by having an expert on your side helping you out, you will be able to minimize pain and suffering you otherwise might have had to endure. Just having a pregnancy workout trainer to bounce symptoms off of who has more time than the 5 or 10 minutes you may get with a doctor really goes a long way. We also know when to refer out when the situation might warrent medical attention.

While many women think of problems with a continued diastasis or prolapse as being postpartum issues, the groundwork can be set for these issues during pregnancy. I'm telling you - you will be so smart to get a jump on learning how to support yourbody during this sensitive time. I wish I knew about proper core control and pressure management before I developed some of the issues I did, including getting an abominal hernia - and I would love to help you learn from my mistakes in a much less painful way!

I'm also a Certified Nutritionist, so if you like we can include discussion of your prenatal nutrition needs to help support your workout plan and your pregnancy. Tackling this from all angles is for sure the fastest way to get to the desired outcome!

I worked core rehab as a student for a year and a half before enrolling in the pregnancy and postpartum corrective exercise course, which was run by two Doctors of Physical therapy. Not only did I spent countless hours in the course material and lectures, but I also have had the opportunity to practice my skills both on myself as well as on others. I've been working with women since the late 1990s. I am confident I can help you with all of your pregnacy workout needs!

Pregnancy is the absolute worst time to be cutting corners with using an expert's help.

Did you know that physical issues developed during pregnancy can affect a woman for her entire life when left untreated? Even a pregnancy that occurred decades ago can leave its mark, and you DON’T have to settle for, “this is just the way it is after having kids.” There is a better way!!

Did you know that physical exercise during pregnancy is associated with a 31% reduction in risk of gestational diabetes? Furthermore, when the exercise programme is conducted throughout pregnancy, the reduction in risk of gestational diabetes is even greater (36%). This is just one of the many benefits to exercising during pregnancy!3

By taking the time to work through specially designed pregnancy exercise, you will be able to keep up with your fitness and set yourself up to reach new personal bests after your baby is born if you so desire! I have worked with so many women who have gone on to do just that. Learning great breathing, balanced core exercise and pressure management goes such a long way for the rest of our lives. It has been proven time and time again to help with issues such as leaking and back pain. I'm telling you, this information is pure gold! 

There are also lots of posture things we can work on to set your body up to thrive after giving birth. Most "regular" exercises don't know about all these little details, such as why scapula position matters when we work upper body - but the benefit will pay off for you long  after your baby is born. So many of my clients have mentioned that lifelong back or neck pain vanished after our work together. It's pretty cool!

I am trained in being able to help you as your pregnancy workout trainer though a live video call format or through in person work. And the great news is, the video method4 has been proven to be just as successful for many women as in person options – so no worries if you are interested in our video call services!
