Pre/Post Partum Training

Personal > prepostFor most women, some sort of exercise is an important part of their daily lives, but what happens once you are pregnant? Do you just sit still and wait for the baby to be born? Or do you keep exercising at the extreme level you may have trained at before the pregnancy?

Research has found no negative effects on the unborn through exercising, so your worry is over. In fact, exercising for 30 minutes at least 3 times a week, if not all days, has many positive effects like:

  • better posture especially during the third trimester and less back pain
  • strengthening of the muscles needed for labour
  • make you feel good about yourself and your appearance, therefore improving your mood
  • improves your energy level especially at the beginning of the pregnancy when you tend to feel tired and exhausted
  • avoids excessive weight gain
  • relieves some discomforts and complications like leg cramps, constipation or gestational diabetes
  • keeps your fitness level up
  • helps you sleep better
