Personal Training in Bristol
Listening to your body for a fit and healthy pregnancy
Your body will change throughout your pregnancy. Hormones work to relax your muscles, ligaments and joints to get ready for the birth.
I offer an integrated, functional movement 1-1 programme, specially designed to keep the mom-to-be strong, mobile and pain free throughout her pregnancy and get her ready for her big day.
We’ll get re-aquainted with your Pelvic Floor and the rest of your Core and help you exercise safely throughout the Trimesters.
These early weeks should be about trying to slow down and look after yourself. Your body is going through huge changes, both physical and hormonal. It needs time to adjust so give yourself a break. Hormones work to relax your muscles, ligaments and joints to get ready for the birth.
This is the stage of your pregnancy when you have the most energy, and are still mobile and physically able - a great time to start working one-on-one with a personal trainer.
We’ll steer clear of anything that might do more harm than good, like planking and sit-ups that tighten your core in the wrong way - at this stage it’s meant to be expanding. Instead we’ll focus on weights, bandwork, deep core work through breathing, and plenty of safe aerobic exercises, all designed to get you in the best possible shape for what lies in store.
During your final trimester, the types of activity you are able to do will depend on how you’re feeling. We’ll take into account how big your tummy is, and whether you’re suffering from any common pregnancy conditions like SPD or sacroiliac pain in your pelvis. The good news is that if you are, I can help.
I will put an individually tailored plan in place for you, including carefully monitored movements and nutritional advice to keep your body tip top and ready for the birth. And if necessary, I can refer you to the right musco-skeletal physios or chiropractors to add to your care.
I wholeheartedly trust all Vicki’s ante- and postnatal advice and believe she really know what it takes to stay strong and healthy through pregnancy, help your body carry that bump and help regain strength and fitness afterwards.
