Prenatal and Postnatal Personal Training
Maintaining a healthy body during your pregnancy is greatly beneficial not only for yourself but for your baby as well. A healthy and fit body will allow for an easier pregnancy, and quicker return to your pre-baby body. To ensure your workouts are safe and effective, prenatal and postnatal personal training programs are designed primarily according to the guidelines of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG).
Personal Training for Pregnant Women
At DeHenzel Training Systems, our team goes above and beyond normal personal training standards when working with prenatal and postal women. Our personal trainers are Annette Lang Pre/Post Natal Specialists, one of the highest recognized pre/post natal speciality certifications in the industry. When it comes to working with women who are looking to become pregnant, are pregnant or recently had a baby, our team can navigate through each phase safely and effectively, above the industry standard.
Our pregnancy personal trainers at DeHenzel Training Systems work with women in all stages of their pregnancy to ensure their exercises regimens are safely designed and executed. We utilize weight and non-weight bearing exercises (dependent on stage of pregnancy), to specifically strengthen the back, abdominals, hips and pelvic floor muscles, to assist in childbirth.
Upon post-pregnancy return to exercise, we work with you to help you lose those extra pounds by gradually increasing the intensity of your workouts to help rebuild your strength, stamina, and overall cardiovascular conditioning. Our personal trainers also specifically work to help you rebuild your abdominal wall and pelvic floor.
