Today I sit down with a very special guest – Brianna Battles – to discuss training the pregnant and postpartum client. She has been instrumental in educating me and changing the trajectory of my career as a trainer, and I am so happy to share this interview with you all.
Pregnancy and postpartum athleticism is an area that can be lacking in trustworthy information online and on social media. Often times on social media, one trainer might suggest you take this or that easy. Another might push the idea that you can keep going at the rate you always have. The truth is that just like with everything else, training during pregnancy and postpartum is highly specific to the individual.
In this episode, Brianna Battles talks all about...
- How postpartum is forever – a fact many people do not take into consideration – and your athleticism does not need to end when your motherhood begins.
- Pregnancy introduces a number of physiological factors that need to be taken into account and treated with care so that no one ends up injured.
- Common myths and misconceptions about training pregnant clients.
Tune in to this episode for a discussion that hits this coach close to home.
