Does anyone know of any good postnatal group fitness certifications? I'd like to start a Mommy and Me-type group fitness class.
I am a CPT having a baby of my own in May. My small community does not offer any pre- or postnatal fitness classes. I would like to start such a class at the small gym I work at, but am looking for certification. I don't feel comfortable designing my own class without any formal instruction.
ACE does offer a specialty cert. in pre and post natal. They have good name recognition, and my experience of doing several of their certs. is that they are very informative and helpful.
I see that you have a personal training certification, but do not seem to have one for group fitness“. Do you have experience with groups? If not, you might want to get your group fit certification even before doing the specialty. During my years in the industry I have done both, and I feel there are real differences in approaching a group. Although, as a lot of trainers do small groups, you might have enough experience in differentiating and group dynamics, that you will find doing the specialty is enough.
Good luck, and be well.
