PREGNANCY AND POSTNATAL

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.

Why us?

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.

The benefits of physical activity during pregnancy may:

boost your mood and energy level
reduce backache, constipation, bloating, and swelling
improve circulation
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

When can you start exercising after birth?

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.

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.

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!

Clint is a fantastic. He helped me increase mobility and flexibility following a slipped disc in my lower back. Over time and with great care, he rebuilt my fitness and core strength.
