Exercise and Sports in Pregnancy: from CrossFit to Yachting, get informed
Exercise and sport in pregnancy: don’t listen to the newspapers, or women’s magazines.
In every aspect of health, fitness and wellbeing we encourage you to take control, take responsibility, and get informed from credible sources. It’s no different when it comes to the beautiful status of pregnancy and ensuring good health for yourself and your child. There is little benefit to handing over your health into someone else’s care.
Balance Performance has a credible source on the team for you on in the form of Sally Murray – physiotherapist, and women’s health specialist (also the teacher and creator of our post-natal and womens only kettlebell classes).
Whether you’re a woman doing our kettlebell classes with Svetlana or Sally, you run around Clapham Common for fun and health, are an iron woman triathlete, or a CrossFit member like the Californian woman featured in this London Metro article, speak to Sally.
So if you’re pregnant or planning to start a family be proactive. Find out how your existing sports and fitness practices need modifying or if you’ve been misled by well meaning but misinformed friends, family, the media or even your doctor/GP.
It is inevitable that at some point you will have to make adjustments to your routines but to what degree is based on multiple factors. The stage of pregnancy, previous experiences of pregnancy, the nature of your sport or fitness practices, the experience you have in them, the skill you have in them – experience doesn’t mean competent!! – are just some of the considerations.
Life is not black and white, its a whole spectrum of GREY: physical practices should never be approached in a binary manner.
If you are going into pregnancy and are sedentary see what you can do to improve your health and that of your child’s.
