This will help you support your clients in class and help them get in the best possible health & shape ready to fall pregnant.
Finishing off with what to expect in each trimester, together with a corresponding workout plans, we have also included a session plan for the final last 2 weeks of pregnancy which covers breathing, pelvic floor exercises, mindset and meditation to enable you to be able to teach your pre-natal client right up to giving birth.
However, it is vital that you understand that as a Fitness Pilates instructor, no matter what level of training you have had, you will be required to work alongside your participant’s health care professionals and gain knowledge from their information.
Always make sure that clients have been cleared to exercise with you and offer 1-2-1 or small group sessions with pre-natal clients rather than to participate in your mainstream, large classes.
