Maintaining regular exercise throughout your pregnancy can help you remain healthy and feeling positive.
Evidence suggests that physical activity during pregnancy can help build the stamina needed for efficient labour and delivery and as long as you listen to your body, you should be able to continue exercising in moderation.
Please keep in mind that now isn’t the time to try to lose weight or begin a high-intensity exercise routine. The Lean with Janine pregnancy plans combine low impact aerobics, strength and resistance training a rather than high impact or strenuous activity. They have been specifically designed for pregnant women and your personalise plan will take into account the type of pregnancy you are experiencing and your current fitness level.
You can safely begin a new exercise program during pregnancy, though if you have any concerns, you should always speak to your midwife or GP.
Every pregnancy is unique, with each stage bringing different challenges to overcome.
The exercise you decide to do throughout your pregnancy should not exceed pre-pregnancy levels. Please be honest about your current fitness level when completing your sign up form.
