Absolutely! In addition to our Fit4Baby program, you are welcome to attend our Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre classes. One of the many myths of exercise and pregnancy is that you shouldn’t work out during pregnancy if you were not engaged in an exercise program prior to becoming pregnant. However, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) states a healthy woman with a normal pregnancy may continue with her regular exercise regimen or begin a new program with physician approval. Regular activity and staying fit can help to reduce many maternal aches and pains, increase energy during pregnancy, and may speed the labor, delivery, and recovery process. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), exercise is just as important during pregnancy as it is at any other time of life.
Our instructors are trained in both pre- and post-natal fitness and follow ACOG guidelines. We can modify any exercise that presents an issue as you progress through your pregnancy. We always offer lower-impact and lower-intensity alternatives to every exercise so that pregnant women continue to work the essential muscle groups while keeping within a healthy perceived rate of exertion.
