Prenatal Aqua Fitness is Back!
Bridget will be teaching this active class for up to 8 pregnant women. The class will focus on strenthening core muscles, stretching and preparing bodies for child birth and mommyhood.
"Exercising during pregnancy can boost your energy, improve your mood and even alleviate some of the aches and pains of pregnancy, including backaches, constipation and swelling. Most types of exercise are safe during pregnancy, according to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, including low-impact aerobic programs and water aerobics, but consult with your primary care provider before beginning a pregnancy exercise program to ensure it is safe and appropriate for you.
Water aerobics provide the same workout for your heart and body as traditional classes without the risks of falls and other injuries. The buoyancy of the water requires you to support only 50 percent of your weight, which alleviates stress on your joints and muscles. In an article on the Parenthood website, Chicago aerobics instructor Julie Jones credits water aerobics with preventing swollen knees and ankles during her pregnancy, in addition to keeping her stomach muscles strong and preventing spider veins on her legs. Working out in the water keeps you cool during your exercise session, which minimizes your risk of overheating and potentially harming your unborn baby." .
Please note that this class requires at least 4 enrolled mommies to run.
Tuition listed is for mommies who do not have another child enrolled in class. All students will be charged an additional $5 registration fee. We will charge your card once the enrollment meets the minimum capacity.
