Pre / Post Natal Exercise

Pre / Post Natal Exercise

Our female pre / post natal qualified instructors are here to help by tailoring an activity programme that’s suited to you and adjusted each trimester. There are a number of benefits of getting or remaining active throughout pregnancy including

  • Boosting your energy

  • Helping you sleep better

  • Lower your risk of certain pregnancy-related complications

  • Reduce pregnancy discomfort

  • Prepare for childbirth

  • Reduce stress and lift your spirits

  • Better posture and less back pain

  • Helps with post natal depression

  • Improve your self-image

  • Get your body back faster after childbirth

For many women changing body shape is a concern and exercise helps to gain a sense of control and achievement.  Exercise is also a great way to connect with others and build long-lasting friendships.

  • FREE health screening (1 to 1 review with a qualified female instructor)
