Prenatal Fitness: Trimester Training Strategies

by Farel Hruska


A pregnant woman will go through more changes in 9 months than most men go through in their entire lifetime! If you have prenatal clients or wish to expand your client base, this DVD will prepare you to work with this specific population. You will walk away with a firm understanding of the hormonal, skeletal, postural and muscular changes that occur throughout pregnancy and how to address most of the maternal discomforts many women may experience. Not only will your client feel better knowing she has a trainer who understands the process, she may also experience a faster delivery and recovery as a result of being properly trained.
