There are many benefits to exercising post-pregnancy, although it can feel like it's the last thing you want to be doing with sleep deprivation and acute tiredness added to the equation!
We are Pre and Post-Natal specialist Personal Trainers and Pilates Instructors - the classes and fitness services we offer are centred around your rehabilitation and fitness improvement.
Increased local muscle endurance
Increased body image and self confidence
Reduced anxiety and post-natal depression
Increased metabolic rate
Increased weight loss
Reduced risk of a future injury
Do not exercise within the first two weeks, the rule of thumb is don't pick up anything heavier than your baby.
Wait for six weeks if you experienced a normal delivery with no complications and twelve weeks if you underwent a C-section.
Thank you Sarah for your fantastic Postnatal classes.
The sessions have helped me get back into shape quicker than I had ever imagined plus I've had fun attending.
The attention you give to our core muscles during the classes has been excellent & with your support I am well on my way to full fitness.
