While keeping physically active during pregnancy can be very beneficial, we mustn’t forget that women may also go through a lot of changes; that is why it is so important to us at Integrated Core Exercise to prepare you for this by applying the most beneficial movement and mobility exercises that are tailored specially for you.
After having your first assessment with us and experiencing our expertise, you will very quickly realize that you are in very safe hands.
We will assess you using our 3D MAPS; a movement and performance system that is arguably one of the best in the world. This allows us to assess your stability, strength, and mobility in all 66 vital joint movements and give us the information that we need to create the right programme for you to prepare you to do things you like and will ultimately need to do during and after your pregnancy.
We understand the importance of the pelvic floor which is why we use the innovative exercise tool – PELVICORE PRO. This will enhance your pelvic core function, improve your mobility and strengthen your entire core.
We will not be looking for what you cannot do, but what you can do and where your successes lie.
boost your mood and energy level
reduce backache, constipation, bloating, and swelling
prevent excess weight gain
help you to recover quicker post-birth
reduce risk of having a C-section
help you to have easier and shorter labour
After a natural birth, it is recommended to wait until after the 6- week postnatal check although you can do some pelvic core exercises such as Kegel.
If you had a more complicated delivery or a cesarean, your recovery time would be longer so it is recommended to 8 to10 weeks.
My experience with Vanessa was fantastic. Vanessa is very resourceful, flexible and experienced in her approach to personal training. Moreover, she is able to motivate you in the way that suits you best! I highly recommend working with ICE fitness instructors.
I went to ICE Fitness to get me into good shape for my wedding – build muscle and reduce body fat. The team are great and Lea kept me motivated throughout to get me to my goal. Thank you!
Lea was great and I felt informed on all my exercises after the three sessions and confident to do them on my own
Ice fitness is simply amazing! The studio is always clean, the equipment is great and most of all the trainers are fantastic. I have been training with Lea for over 4 years now. Lea is extremely professional, has a real interest in women’s health and always adapts her sessions based on my specific needs (which might change along the way!). She was also my best ally during my 3rd pregnancy and made me strong for my planned c-section which was key to my fast recovery. I could not recommend her more, Lea is amazing!
Fantastic space, friendly and knowledgable trainers. I came to ICE after fracturing my wrist and learning that I have low bone density. I had to find a training program that would challenge me while keeping my spine safe. Lea has provided that and more. I am getting stronger and always feel completely safe. Highly recommended!
I was looking for a local PT to help build up strength, fitness and confidence following some health issues and came across ICE Fitness. Lea is a friendly face and has made me want to get up at 6.30am and put my exercise gear on, something I never wanted to do in the past. Lea adapts sessions and keeps them interesting. We have good chats and Lea gives great nutrition and lifestyle advice at the same time. I am a slow work in progress but we are getting there gradually

The space is just right for 1 to 1 sessions and is well equipped. I am a slow work in progress but we are getting there gradually. Thanks Lea !
I love the personal, tailored programme which has radically improved my flexibility and fitness. I’m a 60+ with energy now – thank you!
Personalised and highly effective
Clint is amazingly good at keeping the session interesting as well as listening to your body and tailoring it each week. He is full of things to think about away from the gym as well so really beneficial and he was always understanding when i hadn’t been healthy. You can see he is generally enthused by all things health so make sure you ask him what his latest ideas are. Also great for people like my wife who is not very sporty.
Small boutique one 2 one gym, nowhere to hide!
Great people available at your convenience and ready and able to encourage you to achieve your goals.
I’ve tried to do training on my own many times and never thought I’ll enjoy personal training so much. I like the studio and the environment at ICE. Lea makes my sessions very enjoyable and I love training with her.
I don’t like to train on my own, so I was looking for a PT that will help me to get into shape before summer. I love the environment at ICE fitness, everyone is very friendly and Lea did an amazing job with getting me back into shape!
