Kate offers both pre and post natal personal training
Traditional advice given to pregnant women was to ‘put your feet up and take things easy’. Although sufficient rest and avoidance of prolonged standing activities are important during pregnancy, women are now encouraged to stay active and exercise throughout the duration of a healthy pregnancy. Research indicates an appropriate programme of exercise is not only safe during pregnancy but can also provide a considerable number of health benefits to both mother and baby.
Exercise can deliver profound benefits to pregnant women physically, mentally and emotionally.
Some of the many benefits include:
- Increased energy levels
- Reduced cardiovascular stress
- Prevention of excessive weight gain
- Promotion of good posture
- Prevention of lower back pain
- Improved circulation and blood flow
- Improved mood and mental well-being
- Improved sleep
- Facilitation of labour and faster recovery from labour
Although there are many benefits to exercise, there are a number of absolute contraindications where any form of exercise would be deemed inappropriate. For your information and to be aware of, these include:
- Haemodynamically significant heart disease
- Restrictive lung disease
- Incompetent cervix
- Multiple gestation (triplets)
- Persistent bleeding
- Placenta previa (after 28 weeks)
- Premature labour
- Ruptured membranes
- Pregnancy induced hypertension
Prenatal personal training sessions are delivered at a time and place to suit you, whether that’s in the comfort of your own home, at your workplace; before, during or after office hours, or outdoors; at a local park or green space. Exercise programmes and workouts are tailored to fit in with your daily routine, lifestyle and surroundings.
Alternatively you can come to train with Kate at Station 22 in Waterfoot. Gym programmes can be devised and included as part of personal training packages, delivered during your PT session or in your own time.
Portable exercise equipment and everything that you need for your PT session will be provided. All you need to bring is a towel to mop your brow, water bottle to keep well hydrated and PMA to give each session your all!
