Group Fitness Workshop

This simple, but powerful, 2-hr workshop is designed to help studios dramatically improve client retention by arming instructors with the tools to provide their pregnant and postpartum clients a safer, and far more effective, workout. The content is simple, intuitive, and structured in a way that makes concepts easy to digest, remember, and apply in a group fitness setting. Instructors will appreciate how the simplest ideas can make the BIGGEST impact in client experience, and studio owners will appreciate how a modest investment in professional development can make an equally large impact in client retention! Participants earn CECs (ACE: 0.2, NASM: 0.2, AFAA: 2.0), and the opportunity to be featured on our website as a pre/postnatal educated instructor.

Workshop Details

Instructors who teach traditional, non-aquatic group fitness formats (boot camp, HIIT, cardio, strength & conditioning, Pilates, yoga, spinning, kickboxing, etc), and who want to know how to better coach the pregnant and newly postpartum women who come to their classes.

This workshop is NOT for professionals seeking to work one-on-one with pregnant and postpartum clients, or who are interested in teaching a dedicated prenatal or postpartum class.  For these educational programs, please refer to our online course or personal training workshop.

The content covered in this abbreviated workshop is simple, intuitive, and structured in a way that makes concepts easy to digest, remember, and apply – even when teaching a class of 60 – 100 people! Topics covered include:

  • Benefits of Exercise: Why she needs your class!
  • Pre-Class “Checklist” (what to cover with a pregnant/postpartum woman BEFORE class begins)
  • The most important tips for better coaching, cueing, and modifying during class
  • Signals to look for that could indicate potential injuries or complications
  • CEUs (ACE: 0.2, NASM: 0.2, AFAA: 2)
  • Printed and electronic tip sheet summarizing key info
  • Opportunity to be promoted on website as a “recommended instructor” who has knowledge of how to adapt workouts for this population

This is a FANTASTIC workshop, and the first course I’ve seen specifically designed for GroupX instructors. Most pre/postnatal education offerings are aimed at Personal Trainers, or people who want much more in-depth information about programming for this population, and therefore it can be difficult for GroupX instructors to apply this level of detail in their classes. I love how this workshop arms instructors with exactly what they need to know (and nothing more) to create a FAR safer and more effective experience for their pre/postnatal participants. I know this translates into fewer cancelled and frozen memberships for us, and endorse this workshop wholeheartedly!

I asked PROnatal to conduct a workshop for our instructors, and got above and beyond what I had expected! The presentation was so informative, but also very easy to understand and apply. I know the entire team felt they learned incredibly valuable information that they could immediately apply to help tailor our workouts for moms-to-be and new moms. Thank you PROnatal team!
