This course is sold off-site at PTontheNet.com
Author: Sheila Watkins
There were over four million births in the US in 2017. Research continues to show that exercise during pregnancy provides innumerable benefits for both mom and baby. When creating medical wellness programs, the prenatal population is often overlooked. Meeting the needs of this under-served population can create long term members in years to come. This course will provide the fitness/health professional with basic leadership and technical skills to provide safe, effective, functional and motivating exercise programming and coaching for the pregnant client wishing to exercise in conventional settings. Screening techniques, physiological, anatomical and psychological changes, cardiovascular exercise, strength training and basic nutritional concerns of the pregnant exerciser will be addressed.
