No matter your fitness level, exercise classes are a great way to keep fit, stay motivated and boost positivity. And that certainly doesn’t have to change when you’re pregnant or a new mum. In fact, attending pre or postnatal gym classes is a great way to meet other new or expectant parents. There’s also no denying the benefits to your physical and mental health – both of which can be tested during pregnancy and motherhood.
It’s also claimed that exercising when pregnant can help reduce some symptoms and side-effects of pregnancy, including tiredness and nausea.
Whether you’re a certified gym bunny with a bump or new to the fitness scene, there’s a heap of pregnancy and postnatal exercise classes out there to try. So grab your finest maternity gym clothes and test out our pick of the best.
Exercising during pregnancy is widely recognised as being beneficial to both mother and baby, and the low-impact Barrecore Method aims to improve posture and maintain strength during pregnancy.
Barrecore’s experienced instructors are able to adapt movements to the individual client to match their trimester and personal needs, helping to reduce pregnancy aches and pains and prepare the body for birth. The class is specifically tailored to help prepare your body for labour and all exercises are safe for baby. It’s the perfect mix of strengthening and stretching, all with good music to keep you motivated throughout. Pre-natal barre runs every other Saturday at the Wandsworth studio.
