Workout Guides

Was there a collaboration with a medical professional for these plans?

We have collaborated with an experienced pre and post natal exercise coach to compose these plans.

What is the difference between these guides and the guides already in the app?

The Pre and Post Natal plans are broken down into stages, so that the exercises adapt as the pregnancy progresses. Also, working with the body as it recovers after giving birth.

How do the plans change over the weeks during pregnancy?

The pre natal plans are divided into the three trimesters of pregnancy. Exercises begin to reduce in intensity as you move through the different trimesters, to allow for a growing bump.

How do the plans change over the weeks during the post natal phase?

We have divided these plans in to stages of recovery:

  • 2-3 months post natal, which focuses on reconnecting core function.
  • 3-6 months post natal, incorporating more movement patterns.
  • 6-9 months post natal, preparing the body for more advanced exercises, with the aim being to help you get back to your usual workout routine in the app, safely and effectively.

Should I workout if I haven’t had adequate sleep?

It is commonly known that early parenthood is typically lacking in sleep.
It is fine to exercise if you feel up to it. However take a rest day when you need to. Listening to the body is key in post natal recovery.

Can I workout if I’m new to exercise?

New exercisers have been taken in to account when developing both pre and post natal plans.
There are options to select beginner, intermediate and advanced plans within the app.
Always seek medical advice prior to starting a new activity.

Will the plan address issues with Diastasis Recti?

Yes. The early post natal phase focuses on regaining tension in the transverse abdominis, helping to effectively work with a diastasis recti (abdominal separation & loss of linea alba tension). These specific connection cues are reinforced throughout all three phases of the post natal plans.

Will the plan address and issues with pelvic floor dysfunction?

Yes, if done correctly, following the guide.
We have included core and pelvic floor stability exercise which works with the breath and movement to support the pelvic floor during exercise.
The aim is to help the pelvic floor to heal, in preparation for higher impact exercises which may be resumed once the post natal phase has been completed.
If you have any concerns about pelvic floor dysfunction ( bladder or bowel control) please consult a medical professional.

How many times per week should I exercise?

Listening to your body is the best guide.
Our pre and post natal plans both have the option to select 3 or 5 workout days per week.

Do I need to ‘eat for two’ while I’m pregnant & exercising?

No need to eat for two. The national guidelines state that and extra 200 calories per day, during the 3rd trimester is adequate ( for a single pregnancy).
Staying hydrated throughout pregnancy is important, especially during exercise.

Should I experience any leaks or heaviness in my pelvic floor, during or after exercising?

This is a sign that your pelvic floor needs a little more time to heal. Contact your health care provider if you experience this.

Will exercise affect my milk supply?

Exercise shouldn’t affect your milk supply, however, adequate hydration is especially important while exercising, as breast milk is mostly made up of water.
National guidelines recommend consuming an extra 200-300 cals per day while breastfeeding.

How soon can I start exercising after birth?

Once your health care provider has completed the post natal check and you have been discharged.
This usually happens between 6-8 weeks following a vaginal birth and 12 weeks post c section.

My post partum bleeding has returned/increased after exercise, should I stop?

This is a good indication of the body telling you to slow down and can happen after any activity such as walking or being stood for longer than usual. Listen to your body and take a few days extra rest where possible.

Will this guide help me to lose the baby weight?

The purpose of this guide is to work with the post natal body as it heals, in preparation for resuming more intense exercise. During the post natal phase, the focus is on primarily the body for the new dynamics of family life, as well as recovery after birth. Fat loss may be a result of this but isn’t the main focus.

Is it safe to exercise during pregnancy?

If you have been categorised as having a ‘low risk’ pregnancy, it is safe to exercise.
Always discuss with your health care provider before starting any type of activity.

Are there any conditions which make exercise during pregnancy unsafe?

Women with the following complications would be considered ‘high risk’ by their health care provider:

  • Placenta previa after 26 weeks
  • Insufficient cervix
  • Pre Term labour
  • Preeclampsia
  • Anaemia
  • Multiple pregnancy (eg twins/triplets)

What are the benefits of exercising while pregnant?

Exercise during pregnancy helps to:

  • Increase circulation
  • Ease back pain
  • Promotes healthy weight gain
  • Increases endurance in preparation for labour
  • Can ease constipation

Exercise mat cleaning instructions

The best way to take care of your mat is to wipe down with a damp soft cloth with water and leave to dry naturally. Avoid using detergents or leaving under florescent lighting to avoid discolouration or staining. Natural rubber offers incredible grip for your workouts, however a natural property of the material is that it can absorb impressions during use which should be expected from this type of product.
