Fit Back & Bump
Days - By Appoint | Time - By Appoint
The ideal time to commence this programme is from around 12 weeks of your pregnancy. This will allow you to gain the most benefits but classes can start from up to 30 weeks and still be beneficial.
The 4 class programme focuses on understanding the changes the body goes through, the importance of good posture, safe and effective exercises in pregnancy and core and pelvic floor muscle exercises. You also learn how to physically prepare yourself for labour and learn the invaluable skill of relaxation.
Each session lasts one hour and is comprised of the educational section followed by gym ball and mat based exercises and stretching to reduce muscle and joint stiffness. The exercises are designed specifically to support your changing body, with a special focus on your spine, abdomen and pelvic floor. This then aims to reduce back and pelvic pain during pregnancy and aids a quicker recovery after the birth of your baby.
The cost of the classes includes an exercise pack to allow you to continue with the exercise at home and an educational booklet.
The programme benefits are - reduced pelvic and back pain, - reduced incidence of stress incontinence, - stronger core, - improved posture.
