Prenatal and Postpartum Fitness Classes Starting TODAY!
We are excited to announce that prenatal and postpartum group classes are coming to Crossfit Southie with L1 trainer and BirthFit certified coach Kim Bouton starting Tuesday June 20! Some of you may have noticed there isn’t much information out there about training while pregnant or training after birth, and the information that is out there is full of conflicting points. Despite what some articles and doctors may say, moms are not fragile 🙂 Kim is holding these classes to help educate our moms on what movements are safe for pregnancy and postpartum (yes to squats!), WHY some others aren’t so great (burpees aren’t high on the list, but some may not be upset about that!), and the importance of movement during and after pregnancy- not to mention you’ll get a pretty great work out in at the same time.
Starting June 20, Kim will hold one hour group classes for postpartum moms at 7am on Tuesdays and prenatal moms at 7 am on Thursdays. Classes will include:
– Pelvic floor and breathing exercises that will help you strengthen your core for birth and heal diastasis after
– Strength and conditioning pieces programmed specifically for pregnant and postpartum moms to keep you balanced and aligned to prevent injury and prepare you for one of the biggest athletic events of your life
– Education around WHY we are doing what we are doing, and knowledge you can implement in class workouts
– Fun fact: Postpartum is for life! Whether you’re 6 months or 12 years postpartum, these classes can help you reconnect with your body and core, move better, and feel stronger every day.
This will be a free bonus class for the summer (does not count toward your weekly class total). For non-CrossFit Southie members, the drop-in fee is $20.
For anyone that would like to learn more or speak with Kim before classes, Kim is available for free 30 minute consultations during the week. You can email her at [email protected] For anyone interested in attending class, please fill out this short survey with a few details about yourself here.
