Pre and Post Pregnancy

Whether you have just found out you’re pregnant or have recently given birth, there is no better time to exercise.

With our expert guidance, you will be able to exercise in confidence without worrying that your activity will be harmful to baby. Your personal programme will be adapted to take account of the changes to your body and baby’s development through each trimester.


The benefits to be gained by exercising during pregnancy include:


  • Maintenance of cardio-vascular fitness

  • Maintenance of a healthy weight

  • Improved circulation

  • Preparation for labour and assistance in post natal recovery

  • Improved glycemic control in cases of gestational diabetes

  • Reduced risk of lower back pain

Pre-Natal Mothers

Apart from regaining your figure, which is the focus of most women, there are many benefits to undertaking a specific post-natal exercise programme. With the guidance and supervision of your trainer, you will be reassured that you are performing appropriate exercises, at the right intensity with the correct technique.


The benefits to be gained by exercising post-pregnancy include:


  • Improved posture

  • Increased stamina and energy

  • Increased metabolic rate

  • Increased weight loss

  • Increased self-confidence


Post-Natal Mothers

Your Personal Exercise Programme will include specific exercises to reduce abdominal muscle separation, a common experience of pregnancy and to strengthen the pelvic floor which will have long term health benefits.



In addition, research suggests that women who continue to exercise will feel better, have shorter labours with fewer complications and recover more rapidly. Many common complaints of pregnancy including fatigue, varicose veins and joint swelling are significantly reduced in women who exercise.

Apart from exercise tuition, your trainer will be able to give nutritional advice and guidance to help you make the right food choices. This is an important aspect of looking after yourself and your baby and to get the maximum benefit from your exercise.


At Nxtep, you are our focus and you can be assured of our care and attention at all times. Our pleasant, luxurious and private studio ensures that you will enjoy exercising during this important stage of your life.
