Training the Pregnant and Postpartum Client
This program is the enhanced version of one of Annette's most requested workshops the last 14 years. Pregnant clients make up a special population that you will certainly encounter at some point in your personal training career.
This live workshop starts by presenting the latest recommendations from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). You will understand the rationale of the current guidelines, and how to communicate that to a pregnant client. You will then learn how to assess a pregnant client, and design a program, adapting it according to the changes throughout the forty weeks of pregnancy. You will then learn the important considerations for helping her get back into shape postpartum.
