We are well aware of the benefits of exercise for the general population, these same benefits also apply to the pregnant woman. It is in a trainer’s best interest to manage their pregnant clients well, so that they return once the baby is born to get back in shape, and also prepare for any subsequent pregnancies. Therefore it is important to have a sound knowledge base to best serve the client and help maintain their optimal health. No two pregnancies are the same; many are uncomplicated however some encounter complications. This means a sound knowledge base is essential and will help to manage not only the straightforward client, but the more complex one as well. Appropriate exercise prescription is rewarding for both the client and trainer. Online course of study.
