As Fitness Professionals we know the benefits of remaining active during pregnancy but we may not feel comfortable dealing with clients in this area. This course aims to give you both the knowledge and skills to train the pregnant client and those returning to exercise post partum.
With increased competition in the Fitness Industry, it is important as a Trainer to upskill, stay with the trends and identify your ‘Niche’ area. Exercise during Pregnancy and Postpartum is a skill area that a lot of trainers may lack and hence see a drop off in clientele during this time.
The course will provide a deeper insight to the current guidelines and recommendations for the pregnant client. You will learn how to implement these guidelines in a safe, effective manner. You will receive clarification on the correct advice and exercise programming to provide your client with; during pregnancy and postpartum. Learn how to adapt your fitness classes and personal training sessions for the pregnant client. What exercises can and cannot be implemented into their exercise regime, what intensity level is recommended at each trimester and much more.
This course will also cover the physical and psychological needs of the client during pregnancy or post partum. Nutritional needs at each stage of pregnancy will also be identified. Following this course and its many aspects you will obtain an extensive knowledge within the area of exercise during pregnancy.
