Postnatal Beginner

Postnatal Beginner

If you’ve had a baby within the last 6-8 months or are currently breastfeeding, a postnatal-specific workout is so important! The hormones in your body make the tissues more lax, even after the relaxin leaves your system (sometimes several months later). Postnatal workouts will ensure you don’t push yourself into injury. Our Postnatal Beginner program is for women that didn't maintain an exercise routine through pregnancy. We’ll start small, allowing your postpartum body time to recover, and your core to regain it's former shape. As the weeks pass by, we’ll add intensity and tone up. If you had a C-section, follow the modifications on the calendar.
