pre post natal training

Strength Training through Pregnancy and beyond is imperative to ensure your baby and yourself are strong and healthy throughout this important time. Pregnancy hormones can interfere with your emotions, so an added benefit of strength training is that you release endorphins that in turn can make you feel much happier and stable.

With the inevitable rapid mood swings and decreased energy that pregnant women experience, pre-natal exercise is very beneficial to both Mother and Baby. Pre-natal exercise has a positive impact on the length of the delivery and post-partum fat loss.
A Woman who has more muscle tone and cardiovascular endurance will fare better in a labour room than one who does not. This is a true marathon event and you want to make sure you are ready.

If you are not exercising and want to begin, you can do so under the watchful eye of our highly experience Personal Trainers. Xtreme Results trainer Gemma Irving specialises in pre and post-natal exercise, having had 3 children herself, Gemma knows first hand the importance and benefits of strength training through pregnancy and beyond.

Pregnancy is not a time for fat loss goals, but instead healthy weight gain goals with the forward focus of post-natal fat loss and recuperation.

Increased blood flow and hormone levels result in a higher risk of injury, therefore it is critical to entrust in a Personal Trainer who specialises in pre and post –natal pregnancy training.

Post-natal training is extremely important to restore loss of muscle tone and strength, with a high concentration on pelvic floor and intercostal muscles. Gemma will also devise a personalised plan to support breast-feeding mothers with the goal of vital nutrient support for both Mother and Baby, and returning the Mothers body back to pre pregnancy.

Our personal training facility is located in Varsity Lakes, only 5 minutes drive from Robina, Burleigh, Reedy Creek, Mudgeeraba and Elanora.
