The key difference is that these are training programs and not just workouts. In other words, the workouts build on one another, and progress in a very specific way to help you truly master movements and create greater changes in your strength, posture, and aesthetics.
In our prenatal programs, you’ll begin by establishing a solid foundation of neutral alignment, proper movement mechanics, and deep core activation. Then, you’ll progressively build strength to help you better manage the stresses of increased weight gain and other physiological changes. In the later stages, we begin techniques to prepare you for birth, including LIIT (Labor Intensive Interval Training) and Pushing Prep. You will also begin learning tips to expedite your postpartum recovery.
It is for this reason that we do not offer trimester-specific programs — because the way we train you is different depending on when you begin your training. We have a specific framework that we follow, and we adapt that framework depending on your starting point.
Our Postpartum Training Program follows a similar structure to the prenatal programs. You begin by focusing on Core Recovery and establishing a solid foundation of neutral alignment and proper movement mechanics. Then, we progressively build your strength (including your core strength) to help you get back to doing everything you love (and perhaps more).
Our Core Recovery program does not include full workouts. It is just the specific daily deep core exercises and education included in the first stage of the Postpartum Training Program.
The other key difference in these programs is the education you receive. See third question below.
