Pregnancy-Safe Online Classes
You will have access to a library of over 100 pregnancy-safe classes, 25-40mins in duration, which can be visited at any time you’d like to workout. Classes are added weekly which means this library of workouts is ever increasing. The classes have been designed with minimal kit in mind and the only pieces of equipment you will need are a resistance band, which can be purchased relatively cheaply (around £3-5), and something you can use as a weight (e.g. a 5L water bottle). Classes include circuits, HIIT (higher intensity interval training) sessions, EMOMs (every minute on the minute), along with many other workouts which means there are plenty of options if you have a preferred training method. You will be guided through each full workout so you’ll never feel lost. All of this takes place within a private Facebook Group where you can interact with other members and myself, George. You will have access to me via email and Facebook should you have any individual requests.
It’s important to understand core engagement and ensure that your pelvic floor is strong for the birth of your baby and to avoid any aches and pains you may feel during pregnancy. Your pregnancy hormones loosen your joints (this is normal) which means that taking part in high impact sports, such as running, may result in pain and injury. Because your joints are less stable, it can affect your balance and the last thing you want to do is fall over whilst running or during a high intensity gym class when you’re pregnant. These online classes will set a great foundation for your recovery after your baby has arrived.
I offer a free three day trial of this membership so you can test drive the classes.
Small Group Personal Training (Most Popular)
My friendly, member-centric facility offers small group personal training sessions aimed at building strength which are accompanied by online classes that develop your fitness. As a coach, I’ll guide you through the small group sessions and explain why you’re doing what you’re doing throughout so that you can feel empowered. I want to educate you with the knowledge you need to get the results you want and provide a welcoming and encouraging environment so that you feel part of our community and look forward to each training session. I want you to reach your goals and experience a five star ride along the way. These sessions are suitable for you during pregnancy up to 32-36weeks depending on your situation.
I offer a 30-day trial for £127 which starts with a 1:1 initial evaluation session where I get to know more about you, your goals and your fitness and exercise ability levels. Following this you will have access to 8 coach-led small group personal training sessions (2/wk) as well as access to the online class membership. There is no obligation to continue past the 30-days should you choose not to and, although I am confident that you will enjoy the experience and get great results, if you do not feel better in any way after the 30-days I will happily refund your fee.
1:1 Personal Training
My 1:1 personal training is for pregnant women who want to ensure their body is prepared for birth. Like the small group personal training, you will be coached through exercise sessions by myself, George. I hold numerous modern advanced pregnancy and post natal exercise qualifications so you will be in good hands. The exercise sessions will be personalised to you and your goals and ability levels. Unlike the small group personal training these sessions are suitable for you all the way up to the day you give birth. You’ll be guided through every session and adjustments will be made as pregnancy progresses.
Without trying to scare you, there are lots of exercises and exercise classes out there which can cause you much more harm than good, e.g. if you’re suffering with symphysis pubis dysfunction, which may require crutches later on in pregnancy. I aim to help you feel strong and comfortable throughout pregnancy and prepare you for delivery. You will also have a great foundation for a speedy recovery after birth. In addition to the training, I am an MNU Certified Nutritionist and can advise you on your diet should you want assistance.
I offer a 30-day trial for £187 which gives you 8 x 1:1 personal training sessions as well as access to my pregnancy-safe online class membership.
