More often than not, that leads to sacrificing their health for their baby’s routine. Explore time-efficient exercises and weight-management strategies personal trainers can use to help new parents avoid postural instability, poor dietary habits, and weight gain.

    Participants will learn:

    • Postural deviations commonly associated with carrying and caring for newborns
    • To help clients define realistic goals during post-partum periods
    • To develop rapport with new parents by understanding their changing lifestyles
    • Exercise solutions and progressions to help develop stability, functional movement and stamina

    As a mother of 4 boys, who had all c-sections, I would totally agree with everything that was taught :)

    Realistic approach and scenarios presented in this article. This article did not discuss ways to incorporate fitness into parenthood focusing on time issues, but it gives great, phase-by-phase tips for progressing in postpartum workouts.
