HUTT | SASPT | Personal Trainer | East Grinstead
Sarah is a fantastic personal trainer. I asked for her help nearly two years ago when I was recovering from a back problem and had a very low level of fitness. I knew I had to get fitter but I had never really found the motivation to get on with it.
Since starting a personal training programme with Sarah I've exercised two or three times a week. I could not imagine living without it now. I am addicted! I am a stronger and fitter person than I have ever been, this despite approaching the dreaded forty! I am also a much happier person with more energy...In short, I would not be where I am without her mentoring, help and support...It's hard work but the training, the company, the encouragement and the motivation make you go back again and again!
Exercising pre-pregnancy helps to control weight during your pregnancy and build up stamina that will help during your pregnancy and during labour. It will help you with sleep, mood and fighting depression. It also helps with anxiety and stress.
Each trimester needs to be addressed and each new mum needs consideration. How fit you were before your pregnancy, energy levels, hormones, changes in your body, how hectic your life is and your medical history.
Check with your doctor or health professional that you are ok to train.
Only train if you have been exercising prior to pregnancy.
Don't start something new once you find out you're pregnant.
Use the correct lifting technique in accordance to each trimester.
Avoid weight training flat in your back.
Avoid over stretching due to the relaxin released.
I love what I do and I am are constantly learning and training myself
I am constantly driven by the incredible sense of fulfilment I feel when someone achieves their goals – no matter if they’re you’re an elite athlete, recreational athlete or a sedentary office worker. I believe that everyone can positively change themselves and their bodies.
