Carrying a child and giving birth may be one of the most physically challenging events of your life. You can prepare for it by increasing your overall endurance, improving your balance, increasing the flexibility and strength of your core muscles and starting at a healthy weight.

For women considering pregnancy, I offer and recommend personal or small group training.

Getting in shape for pregnancy

Personal and Small Group Training

Personal or small group training is the most customized and inclusive way for you to reach your fitness goals. Personalized training is strategic and takes into account your needs, likes/dislikes, barriers and motivation. To ensure you succeed, I take an integrative approach. We examine your past successes and challenges with nutrition and exercise. You'll complete an activity profile to help us determine where you can easily incorporate more activity that will give you results. We'll also look at the demands of your family life and how that impacts your fitness routine and ways it can enhance your fitness journey.

A typical 60-minute session includes:

  • 45-minute customized and comprehensive workout (you'll also receive a workout to do while we're not together)
  • 15-minutes to focus on goals, nutrition, challenges, new strategies, successes, opportunities and resources

Support from friends and family is strongly encouraged

I will be there to support you every step of the way, but having the support of family and friends not only makes reaching your goals fun, but it helps you stay committed. As an incentive the full session rate is the same for one person or to workout with up to three others! Workout buddies do not have to be considering pregnancy or have the same goals as you.
