Looking for the best baby-bump classes at our studio???
A great prenatal class and favorite among our mamas-to-be. Full body strengthening with extra ab work in the plank position where intensity can be personalized. *Flex CARDIO or Reformer Pilates may not be recommended starting mid second trimester.
Another great prenatal class! Lots of hip and outer thigh strengthening in a standing position. We use a bar for balance. Hardly any exercises laying on your back.
Also recommended for those expecting! This workout builds total body strength with extra core stabilization and upper back strengthening. Minimal exercise time on your back with easy-to-replace alternatives.
Good for first-to-second trimester. May not be ideal for third trimester due to intensity of leg work in a hinged or forward leaning position which may be uncomfortable. And a few back-laying exercises are often included.
Not recommended due to the amount of forward flexion and time laying on your back.
REBOUNDING [TOP GUNS, HIGH FLYER, ALL STAR]
If you were jumping with us before your pregnancy, you could be okay continuing through your first-to-second trimester, lowering the intensity and range of motion as needed. Because we don't jump UP, the movement and pelvic floor impact is similar to jogging or floor aerobics. The difference is that you're landing on a softer surface. But you do also need to consider your changing balance and center of gravity. But if your doctor is okay with jogging/aerobic exercise for you (and you've jumped with us pre-pregnancy), talk with us to see how you feel. And out of our 3 rebounding classes, Top Guns is the best fit given the interval format and upper body strengthening!
