For the Childbearing Year and Beyond…

Pre­na­tal class­es teach expec­tant moth­ers safe and effec­tive exer­cis­es for the var­i­ous stages of preg­nan­cy, iso­lat­ing the mus­cles weak­ened most dur­ing preg­nan­cy and coun­ter­act­ing the pos­tur­al changes that often lead to com­mon aches and pains. Post­par­tum fit­ness class­es help you get your body back and recov­er quick­ly after baby comes, and many teach you to incor­po­rate your baby into your work­out for a dif­fer­ent kind of qual­i­ty time with your lit­tle one, encour­ag­ing bond­ing with your baby while doing some­thing good for your­self. And the Post-post­na­tal class­es real­ly step it up a notch to keep rais­ing the bar on your fit­ness goals as you grow stronger.

About the Levels

All the Pre­na­tal, Post­par­tum, and Post-Pos­na­tal fit­ness class­es are spec­i­fied for par­tic­u­lar skill and activ­i­ty lev­els.  We rec­om­mend that every­one start at the begin­ner lev­el, so vis­it first the Fit Begin­ners sec­tion where you will find the Short Begin­ner Series class­es. Try doing 2 or 3 of these class­es in a row to be sure you are ready to move on to the longer Begin­ner lev­el class­es in the Pre­na­tal and Post­par­tum sec­tions.  You can pro­ceed to the Inter­me­di­ate and Advanced lev­els as strength and endurance increase. It’s impor­tant to lis­ten to your body as it under­goes mas­sive changes on a con­tin­u­ous basis in the pre­na­tal and post­par­tum phas­es. You may work your way up to the advanced lev­el class­es and have to scale back to the inter­me­di­ate or begin­ner lev­els very late in preg­nan­cy. Cer­tain­ly every new mom should begin again at the begin­ner lev­el and work her way up to the longer and more dif­fi­cult class­es. You may be in a hur­ry to get back in to shape, but you can’t rush nature. Respect where you are today and progress nat­u­ral­ly.
