Award in Designing Pre and Post-Natal Exercise Programmes

It has now been proven beyond doubt that safe and well managed exercise in the pre and post-natal period is highly beneficial to both mother and baby. Many expectant mothers are now very aware of this and are actively seeking professional guidance in managing an exercise programme that will support and enhance their pregnancy experience.

It is very likely at some point in an instructor’s or personal trainer’s professional career that they will be called upon to work with a pre or post-natal client. Some trainers have even built a business focused on working with these particular groups. Whatever your motivation, this course will give you the knowledge and skills, as well as the confidence, necessary to work with this hugely rewarding but often more challenging and sensitive population.
