YOUR Personal Trainer - YOUR Future in Fitness!

Ante and post-natal exercise

Your qualified RWPT pre and post natal exercise instructor is specially trained to assess your needs and give safe effective exercise advice when you are pregnant and after the birth.


Pregnancy exercise (antenatal or prenatal exercise)

Hormonal factors, alongside the changes in the shape of your body mean that specialised exercise techniques need to be considered, but you can still enjoy effective exercise sessions throughout your pregnancy. There is a wealth of evidence showing that women who exercise during their pregnancy reap the benefits in terms of: -

  • Easier delivery and pregnancy
  • Less back pain
  • Reduced risk of stress incontinence
  • Improved circulation (resulting in lower risk of varicose veins and haemorrhoids)
  • Quicker recovery from delivery
  • Raised self-esteem
  • Lower pregnancy weight gain
  • Reduced risk of diastasis recti (a split in the abdominal muscles)

Post-natal exercise

After the strains of pregnancy and labour, you need to make careful and informed exercise choices. Did you know that the hormone relaxin, which softens ligaments and joints can remain in the body for up to 6 months post-partum? With the demands of motherhood, Rob Woollen Personal Training have designed exercise sessions where you can bring baby along - making it easier to find time to exercise without having to worry about being away from your little one. Exercising after the birth (post-partum) has a host of benefits such as: -

  • Reduced likelihood of PND (post-natal depression)
  • Improved recovery from labour
  • Functional strength and endurance to help with new tasks
  • Faster return to pre-pegnancy fitness and weight levels
