Fit4birth is a pregnancy class devoted to pregnant ladies and their bumps! Take time and fully indulge in a prenatal only class, meet other pregnant ladies and enjoy some movement at the same time!
Taught in small classes, enjoy 40 minutes of exercise suitable for pregnancy. We work on mobility movements, posture, back release and pelvic floor as well as bodyweight exercises, cardio and strengthening. Each week is different and can be adapted for those within the class. One week we may concentrate on toning and strength work, another week flexibility and mat based work.
After a little break, and a chance to chat we will spend around 20 minutes talking through pregnancy and areas that you may wish to discuss or ask questions about eg nutrition, how to sleep better or birth planning.
As well as movement and antenatal education we can also take 10 minutes to relax and feel calm, using a range of relaxation techniques that you can use during labour.
Keri teaches these classes and is an Advanced Practitioner in Pregnancy Exercise and Birth Preparation as well as a Specialist Women's Health Personal Trainer and Health Coach - you are in beyond safe hands with her!
The content and type of exercise, as well as the topics covered in the antenatal class can be easily adapted to clients and their stage of pregnancy.
It doesn’t matter if you are 12 weeks and are still feeling a bit green, in your blooming 2nd trimester or sporting a beautiful bump you can join whenever you please and work as hard (or not) as you wish – mum knows best in all our sessions! You can choose to work at a level that is right for you, which can change on a weekly basis.
The class is suitable for any 'fitness' level from absolute beginner to a client who wishes to maintain fitness levels during pregnancy. You must have had your 12 week scan before you can join, and you can stay in the pregnancy class right up until you have your baby, including over your due date.
A great way to meet other mums to be and build up that vital support network for those postnatal days!
