Recent research shows that women can lose on average 11Ibs of baby weight in three months by playing computer games such as the Wii sports and fitness games. Each workout was completed for 45 minutes every other day. However, although this seems beneficial to new mums as they can complete their fitness workout from home and that it’s more cost effective, it does have its drawbacks.
Injuries can be obtained if you are performing exercises incorrectly, the memento can be lost and the overall workout isn’t as effective as it would be with a fully trained fitness instructor. Losing post baby weight is one of the more challenging forms of weight loss, but with the right support from professionals like yourself, you can help Mums get back to their original weight and be fit and healthy for their new born.
One of our personal trainer training courses specialises in you qualifying to be an Ante and Post Natal fitness instructor. You will not only be managing your pregnant clients’ health and fitness, but you’ll also be managing the health of the unborn baby too, which is why it is crucial that fitness professionals have the necessary skills to run the ante and post natal classes safely for both the mother and the baby. Although Wii fitness games seem appealing, it is important that mums have the correct guidance and safety, especially during their pregnancy from fully qualified fitness professionals.
