Pre and post natal training
Having a baby is up there as one of the best events of life, but for some mums-to-be and new mums it can also be an emotional and confusing time when it comes to health and body image.
We all hope and pray we will grow a perfect baby bump, with no unnecessary gained weight that will see us triple in size in nine months! But in reality this can be hard to manage with all the other elements that come with being pregnant or having a baby.
Your health is highly important both pre and post natal and regular exercise has had proven benefits on pregnancy and post birth. Being pregnant certainly isn’t the time to start setting fitness goals of running a marathon, but regular exercise will help promote the health of you and bump, as well as helping with positive body image.
I trained with Bondi Bum after having my first baby and also while pregnant for the second time (this time with twins!) and I’m so glad I did. Training while pregnant helped massively to boost my energy levels – there were days that went into a session thinking I was too tired to train, but came out of it feeling full of life again. My post baby training was great and my trainer was flexible to fit in with my schedules (which can be all over the place with a baby), helped me work on regaining my fitness levels and feeling that it was actually possible to regain my pre-baby body!
