Our Team is equipped with pre-natal exercise trainers in Oakville who have a wealth of experience working with pregnant women and are here to guide you throughout your entire pregnancy.
When you become pregnant, the prospect of exercising can seem scary. Many pregnant women have questions about pre-natal exercise training in Oakville and whether or not exercising while pregnant is safe *. In the not-too-distant past, it was presumed that weight lifting and other resistance exercises might be too stressful and cause injury during pregnancy. However, it is now widely recognized in both the fitness and medical communities that exercise and strength training, with appropriate modifications, provides MANY outstanding benefits to a woman’s overall pre-natal and postpartum physical and mental well-being.
Pre-natal exercise training in Oakville will prepare you in the best way possible for the delivery of your baby and recovery thereafter. Inactivity and a lack of exercise can lead to weight gain, high blood pressure, pain, body aches and a higher risk of gestational diabetes. Staying physically active during pregnancy can often lead to an easier and shorter labour, fewer C-section deliveries, and a quicker recovery after your baby is born. Pre-natal exercise training in Oakville can also help with leg swelling, back pain and constipation. Many mothers-to-be also experience better sleep, mood, and overall sense of confidence.
Working with one of our pre-natal exercise trainers in Oakville is one of the best ways to ensure both you and your baby will be healthy and strong during and after pregnancy. A strong body will allow you to recover faster after your delivery, and all that strength and energy you gain during your workouts will come in handy once baby arrives. Our pre-natal exercise trainers in Oakville will focus on important adaptations your body is going through, as well as improving things like posture, strength, stretching and cardiovascular health during your workouts. Due to the changes that occur in a women’s body during pregnancy, many postural and other muscles come out of alignment and weaken, such as the hamstrings, buttocks, the abdominal wall, back muscles, etc. Our pre-natal exercise trainers in Oakville will pay close and safe attention to these areas of your body during your workouts which will help to minimize the discomforts felt during pregnancy (as your body is growing and adapting to its new baby belly shape and size).
Overall, our aim as your pre-natal exercise trainers in Oakville is to offer our pregnant clients the guidance and support they need to keep their changing bodies as strong, stable, and as comfortable as possible – for as long as possible! J

* It is important to note that each person has individual needs and should listen to their body when taking up a prenatal exercise training program. The level of fitness that you are able to partake in will depend on many personal factors. We recommend you check with your doctor first that you have a clean bill of health to start an exercise program with a pre-natal exercise trainer in Oakville.
If you were an active person prior to your pregnancy, you should be able to continue taking part in many of the activities that you participated in previously, with some modifications. Also, note that you may not be able to exercise at the same intensity or at the same pace as before. This is another time when it is important to listen to your body.
If you were not an active person prior to pregnancy, it doesn’t mean that you should avoid working with one of our pre-natal exercise trainers in Oakville. Most recommendations suggest that pregnant women get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily, with doctor approval. It is important that you don’t push yourself too hard. This is especially true if you were not very active before previously getting pregnant. Walking and swimming are two activities that almost every pregnant woman can benefit from, even if you have not exercised regularly in the past.
