Pre/Postnatal Education for Group Fitness Instructors

About 86% of women will have a baby at some point, and when it comes to group fitness, this can often mean losing even your most loyal members.  We want to help you change that.  This course arms you with the tools you need as an instructor to keep your members safely moving with you longer into their pregnancies and returning faster afterward.  All tips are designed to be easily applied in a group fitness setting – even in a packed class with tons of other things to manage.  You’ll be surprised by how the simplest ideas can make the biggest impact, and many of the tips benefit ALL participants.

This is exactly what the fitness industry has been missing. So many pre/postnatal women are taking group fitness now, but most instructors don’t know where to go for this type of education and are concerned the education may not be relevant for their job. This course addresses those concerns with information that is clear, relevant, and easy to apply in a group fitness setting. HIGHLY recommended.

Taylor Spearnak, Group Fitness Manager & Instructor, Equinox

The thing I loved most about the course was how it gives you the tools to determine if an exercise is appropriate or not instead of making you memorize a laundry list of what you should/shouldn’t do. After taking this course I can say with 100% certainty that I can safely help my pregnant and postpartum members continue their exercise journey while still being true to my class format. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who teaches group fitness!

Jamie Tuttle, Orangetheory Fitness Coach

This was one of the most useful and practical courses I have taken in my entire fitness education. It gets right to the point with clear information laid out in a way that makes sense – supported by real life applications that benefit ALL participants. I think this course should be a requirement for any group fitness instructor.

Sabrina Ursaner, Co-Founder of Alignment Essentials

This course provides one of the most user-friendly training platforms I’ve seen. The material is smartly-structured, up-to-date, and highly relevant. It gives you the confidence to provide pre/postnatal clients a safe and effective workout and removes the stress of figuring out how to do this in a group setting.

Melody Davi, Training and Development Operations & Instructor, SLT

I love how this course is laid out! It’s specific and to the point. Not only do I feel more confident with my ability to coach pre/postnatal participants, but I also love how so many of the recommendations are beneficial for all participants -- making the class an overall better experience for everyone!
