Pre & Post Natal Training
We have trained many women through pregnancy and beyond, at in2great fitness. As movement specialists, we understand the changing mechanics and posture pregnancy creates, and the physical demands a mother faces through this huge transformation.
A healthy, functional body is key to a comfortable pregnancy, labor, post-natal recovery, and of course a healthy baby. As a mothers resources are diverted towards growing a whole new being, the path to labor can be exhausting an overwhelming. Movement is imperative to a healthy and pain free life, and in pregnancy it becomes even more important.
A mother picks up her child on average 58 times a day, that’s worth training for so that you can do it safely, and prevent injury. Movement is anti-inflammatory and helps increase circulation, optimise hormones, reduce pain, and helps every single body system function better, which is always a great thing when you are growing a new human!
Traditional pregnancy exercises tend to be centred around floor work, pelvic floor strength, or very basic isolation type strength exercises, but these leave a lot to be desired in building a healthy, happy and resilient mamma’s body!

Both Personal Training & Classes Are Suitable For Pregnancy
Whether your preference is 1:1 training, or you enjoy the group fitness vibe, we can help you thrive during pregnancy and beyond. Personal training might be the best option for you if you are struggling with aches and pain, or are new to training. In post natal sessions we offer off-peak time slots to allow new mum to bring their bubs with them to help get the healthy movement they need.
If classes are more your style, we recommend the following classes during pregnancy:
ZONE Circuit provides you with a heart rate monitor to ensure you and your baby are safe. Zone Circuit is a circuit style class of full body movements, assorted tools and equipment for strength, mobility, efficiency and enjoyment. It also includes Powerplate Vibration (calves only during pregnancy.)
ViPR Class is a full body movement based workout that feeds your body a variety of angles, forces and speeds to create full body strength, enhance fascial fitness and overall resilience.
TRX class is a whole body, body weight based class using the TRX suspension trainer. It’s fully adjustable to all levels, and can easily be regressed, making it ideal during pregnancy. It’s a 30 minute class that enhances body weight strength with more traditional moves like lunges, squats etc. TRX is the pregnancy favourite!
DE-STRESS DE-FUZZ is a low intensity class designed to help you reduce pain, and increase mobility and efficiency. We use vibration, fascial release strategies, mobilisers, body weight movements and more.
