The consequences for the body after giving birth are numerous. The distention of the abdomen, the flaccidity, and new accumulations of fat generated to ensure the sustenance of the baby are some of the reasons that lead new mothers to want to resume physical activity as soon as possible. But after the intense work that childbirth entails, it is recommended to be patient and always work hand in hand with experts to achieve the proposed objectives without generating complications in the body.

Exercising at any stage of our lives is essential to enjoy good health and have a balanced life. It’s proven that people who exercise often are less likely to suffer from diseases, for example, heart disease, in addition to managing stress better.

But when you have a baby, finding time to exercise can be difficult. Hormonal changes can make you feel sentimental and some days you may feel too tired for a complete workout. But do not give up!.

We know that you are worried about not being able to recover the body you had before, but we are sure that you can make it, and we are here to help you. Exercising after pregnancy may not be easy, but it can do wonders for your well-being and give you the energy you need to raise your baby.

Why should you practice postnatal exercise?

During pregnancy, our body undergoes a transformation that affects, besides other things, the abdominal muscles, the spine, and the rib cage. Likewise, the pelvic floor is very weakened after having suffered the increasing weight of the uterus and the pushing of childbirth, which is why postpartum exercises are essential.

We understand that as a new mother you have all your energy and time focused on your baby, but we also understand the importance of dedicating some quality time to improve your health and lifestyle through exercise, and why not, recover the body that you had before pregnancy.

NOTE: We know that some women are concerned that physical activity affects their breastfeeding. We want to let you know that the exercises carried out during this program do not!.

What we do recommend is to have a balanced diet since it will be necessary to balance what the body requires for physical effort and what the baby needs for feeding.

Who should enroll?

This program is for all moms that have been approved by the doctor to come back on their “normal life”, who seek to reconnect with their body to minimize step by step, with the help of experts, the changes generated by pregnancy, such as pelvic floor dysfunction, diastasis recti, backaches, and fatigue.

These are some of the benefits:

Improve your physical and mental well-being.
Help restore muscle strength and firm up your body
Make you less tired because it raises your energy level and improves your sense of well-being
Promote weight loss
Improve your cardiovascular fitness
Condition your abdominal muscles
Improve your mood and relieve stress
Help prevent postpartum depression.

During pregnancy, it’s incredibly important to respect the changes happening within your body to give yourself the best chance to emerge from this journey with the least physical impact. To achieve this, fitness during this delicate time needs to be approached with care and strategy!

Currently, pregnant women are encouraged to accumulate 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity exercise on most—if not all—days of the week in the absence of medical or obstetric complications.

Growing a baby exerts a lot of pressure behind your ab midline and on your pelvic floor. It also creates many biomechanical changes as the pregnancy progresses that should be considered at the time of practice physical exercise. The goal of this program is to build a strong functional core to promote strength and wellbeing, as well as lessen the likelihood of developing diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, and back pain.

Why should you exercise during pregnancy?

As long as mom is healthy and able to exercise during pregnancy, there are numerous benefits not only for mom but also for baby while in utero. Regular exercise throughout pregnancy can help mom adjust to changes in her body due to added weight and changes in hormones, including relief from muscle strain, improve posture and decrease back pain, as well as help battle fatigue commonly experienced in pregnancy. Exercise can also help regulate mood swings and prepare mom for labor and delivery.

On the other hand exercising during pregnancy is proven to also prepare you physically to face the challenges of being a new mother.

Also, it is important to understand that as a woman, we have a completely different body function and hormonal balance through our states of life. Learning how our hormonal system works and how to train ourselves correctly is necessary to become the best version of ourselves and enjoy each day healthy, physically, mentally, and loving our bodies.

In the case of babies, it is a fact that newborns whose mothers exercise during pregnancy may become physically coordinated a little earlier than others, this also has a good influence on their weight control, body composition, heart health, and nervous system; and not only during pregnancy but also during childhood.

Who should enroll?

This program is for pregnant women of all trimesters who are in excellent health and who seek the help of experts so that through exercise, they can connect with themselves and with their babies, providing them with all the benefits offered by exercising consciously.

NOTE: Although we do a physical evaluation before starting the course, it is important to have the approval of the doctor.

These are some of the benefits:

Relieves common pregnancy problems like back pain, posture problems, and constipation
Increase the amount of oxygen in your body and that of your baby

The LOW-PRESSURE FITNESS training is not only a breathing technique with an apnea followed by a false inhale and abdominal suction. LPF has become a seamless progression of detailed postures that are maintained while performing a rhythmic breathing pattern in combination with the historical apnea and false inhale.

Low-Pressure Fitness is currently one of the most complete physical exercise programs that has become so much more than just a technique limited to those with pelvic floor dysfunction.

LPF will restore the pelvic health and train the true function of the core by reducing pressure to the thoracic, abdominal, and pelvic cavities, quite the opposite of hyperpressive exercises, which are what we generally perform daily.

If you suffer from a weak core and also have pelvic floor problems, then you should try the incredible technique of Low-Pressure Fitness.

Adherence to the program allows clients to improve posture, abdominal resting tone, help in the prevention of abdominal and vertebral hernias, improve athletic performance and quality of life.

Why should you practice LPF?

Whether you are a woman recovering postpartum, an athlete looking to improve athletic performance or an office worker looking for a stronger core, LPF is a helpful strategy. This is because it triggers the involuntary action of the deep core unit, which can not necessarily be targeted through traditional core exercises. Many tasks we do in everyday life are hyperpressive in nature, that is they increase the intra abdominal pressure. Examples could be coughing, sneezing, lifting something heavy or running. This combined with the constant pull of gravity creates downward pressure that overtime can lead to an inability for the core, and specifically the pelvic floor, to function properly. This in turn can lead to conditions such as prolapse and hernias etc, as the pressure will always try to slip out through the weakest spots. Working on preventing this by decreasing the pressure can make the core more balanced and therefore better at handling and responding to hyperpressive activities. Working on breathing also helps to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, which can help in managing stress levels and increase overall well being.

Who should enroll?

This program is for any men and women, who through conscious breathing want to connect with their body, especially with their core, and in this way begin to generate positive changes in health.

These are some of the benefits of practicing LPF:

Improves muscle tone in the abdomen and pelvic floor,
Improves posture and balance,
Reduces the waist circumference,
Strengthens the respiratory muscles,
Increase aerobic capacity,
Prevents joint and muscle injuries,
Prevents the appearance of any type of hernia,
Improve pelvic floor disorders such as incontinence, sexual dysfunction, prolapse,
Decreases the degree of abdominal diastasis,
The best method of preparation for childbirth and recovery.
