The benefits of training during pregnancy

At FFS we’ve worked with many prenatal clients in classes and through personal training.

When beginning a family, you want to be at your healthiest and FFS is proud to help.

Moderate physical exercise has been shown to be beneficial for both mother and baby. Consistent exercise at FFS has been described as invaluable by our clients when returning to the gym following pregnancy.

Once your doctor gives the nod, we recommend moderate exercise to help:

  • Control weight gain
  • Reduce risk of high blood pressure, hypertension and pre-eclampsia
  • Reduce risk of gestational diabetes
  • Improve mood and quality of sleep
  • Prepare for childbirth
  • Postpartum recovery

Postnatal Small Group Training

Our postnatal training focuses on providing a safe and steady return to exercise following pregnancy.

The physical demands of pregnancy can affect posture and breathing patterns. It also puts extra strain on the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. With qualifications in Modern Postnatal Exercise and Wellness, our coaches for these classes are here to help you successfully return to regular exercise.
