Get Started with a Prenatal & Postnatal Personal Trainer
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).
“What a great experience! Although I was pretty athletic prior and during my first pregnancy, I was unsure how and what to do to get back into exercising without injuring myself postpartum. It was awesome to have a set time each week where I could focus on myself! It was definitely worth it, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.” – Emily, Arlington, VA
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 specifically pre/post natal certified through Annette Lang and Oh Baby, one of the highest recognized pre/post natal specialities certifications in the industry.
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, to specifically strengthen the back, abdominals, hips and pelvic floor muscles, to assist in childbirth. We also follow specific core training exercises, dependent on the trimester and teach proper breathing techniques.
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, heal any potential diastasis recti and strengthen your pelvic floor.
