I've been a personal trainer for 4+years now and am pre and post natal certified through ACE. I've trained a number of pre and post natal women through the years with that knowledge. When I became pregnant (I'm 28 weeks now), I sought after more knowledge in what I should/shouldn't be done to ensure the health off my baby and my body during pregnancy and postnatally. I'm so thankful to my friend, Cheri Wissmann, who pointed me to Brianna Battles and this course! I just completed it and I have to say I learned so much. It was so valuable to me as a coach of things I need to consider when training my pre and post natal women, but also how I train myself through this pregnancy.
To say that everything I learned in my past certification is incomplete is a generous understatement. Like most coaches, I am slightly crazy and intense when it comes to exercise, and this course taught me to really consider why I would want to run and do plyometrics with a growing belly, and I willingly gave them up (and bought a sled and joined a spin studio to fill the void). I sought out a PFPT as a precaution. I, also, was being really mean and hard on myself for how my body was changing, looking and how everything that felt harder (especially before I got the cute bump), and this course was an amazing reminder to be kind to myself. And it made me realize what an amazing thing my body is doing and there is no rush to look the way I did pre-pregnancy to be able to everything I had been doing once the baby arrives.
