The next few weeks KLS Fitness is very busy! We have several ladies competing in figure and bikini competitions, website updates, and our first ever Fit for Birth - 10 Week Strength Series starting at Arena District Athletic Club. If you haven't heard or read about the class, you can see my blog post here.
Here is a snippet video along with some additional facts about the tested method.
BENEFITS OF FOLLOWING THE FIT FOR BIRTH PROGRAM INCLUDE: • Pre & post natal specialized exercise guidance • Focus on posture and alignment • Focus on correct muscle activations • Pre and Postnatal core strengthening • Smaller, more manageable belly • Setting a neuro-muscular foundation that will minimize aches and pains over the course of your life, from motherhood to grandmotherhood
BENEFITS OF EXERCISING DURING PREGNANCY INCLUDE: • Fewer aches and pains of pregnancy • Minimizing weight gain • Faster recovery after delivery • Less risk of C-section • Less need for pain relieving medications during labor • Shorter labor and delivery • Less likelihood of medications for induction • Decreased risk of all common pregnancy interventions
BENEFITS FOR YOUR UNBORN CHILD INCLUDE: • Increased health • Increased intelligence • Less risk of interventions during gestation • Lifelong reduction in risk of chronic disease
My goal for the next year is to work with FIFTY (50) pre or postnatal clients in Columbus, Ohio. So far, I have 7! I hope with this class and some additional personal training I can get there faster than 11 months! I'll count ladies that attend standard group fitness classes so long as I have the opportunity use specialty pre/post natal modifications!
If you are pregnant, just delivered or know anyone that may be interested, please spread the word! Using the FFB method and functional training, I was able to rehab my own diastasis, resumed lifting at 6 weeks postpartum (and OB clearance) and pre pregnancy weight by 12 weeks. #thatsawesome #canigetafitmomplease
