Baby Body Fit, the unique fitness programme that caters for bumps and babies, is now available online. Mums-to-be who want to stay fit and healthy while pregnant, but who cannot get to a local class, can now exercise safely at home, when and where they like!
The online programme covers both fitness and healthy eating plans, and has been devised by experts in pre-natal exercise and care. It is available to buy at www.online.babybodyfit.ie, for a once off payment of just €30, and makes an original and very useful gift for mums-to-be.
Dublin fitness instructor and mum of two Stephanie Sinnott founded Baby Body Fit to help pregnant women and new mums to get in shape and keep fit, both during and after pregnancy.
The latest specially devised online regime for mums-to-be covers a safe and effective full body workout, as well as meal plans for each trimester, and lots of healthy recipes and nutrition advice.
A 3 day full-body workout is simply demonstrated, with explanations and photos of each exercise, and health and safety guidelines for exercise during pregnancy clearly illustrated.
Suited to laptops, tablets or phones, Baby Body Fit online is updated constantly, with new workout routines and recipes added regularly, helping expectant mums to stay healthy, prepare for childbirth, and avoid excessive weight gain.
Many expectant mums are unsure about how to exercise and what to eat during pregnancy, Stephanie Sinnott of Baby Body Fit says.
“Women often want to keep up their exercise routine while pregnant, but need to be sure they’re exercising safely. Even women who have not done much exercise before being pregnant quickly realise the very practical physical and mental benefits of regular exercise” the specialist fitness instructor says.
Apart from general fitness and weight management, exercise helps with stress and depression, and promotes relaxation and better sleep. Women who exercise while pregnant do not suffer the same degree of water retention, stretch marks, or varicose veins, it is also claimed. Developing stronger arms, legs, core and back, as well as a better posture, makes back pain less likely while pregnant too.
Countrywide Classes and Online
For women who prefer the motivation of a class format, there are morning time Baby Body Fit classes at a number of venues around Dublin, including Clontarf, Ballsbridge, Bayside, Firhouse and Sandyford. The prenatal classes are in the evenings, and the postnatal ones are in the mornings in order to suit working women and those who are on maternity leave respectively.
Classes are also held countrywide, with centres in Cork and Galway, and all detail is onwww.babybodyfit.ie.
Using the new online resource, mums-to-be can now stay fit during pregnancy, from the comfort of their own home, safe in the knowledge that their exercise programme is specifically designed for their needs and ability.
Steph will also be launching postnatal online course in the coming months, giving new mothers a safe home workout with weight loss meal plans and the tools you need to lose weight healthily.
About Baby Body Fit
Baby Body Fit is a two stage maternity fitness plan, designed initially to strengthen the body while pregnant. It is then adapted to get back into exercise, build energy and lose unwanted weight soon after child birth.
The unique fitness programme is the only course in Ireland providing a light, safe, and effective cardio workout during pregnancy, combined with yoga and Pilates exercises. Baby Body Fit caters for all levels of fitness. New mums must have their GP’s clearance to return to exercise; generally six weeks after a normal delivery, or 10 weeks after Caesarean section.
