It’s not only OK to remain physically fit during pregnancy it’s necessary for the health of mom and baby.
Concept 10 10 provides all the benefits of working out during pregnancy without any of the risks, said Jorgen Albrechtsen, founder and developer of Concept 10 10.
A baby’s growth puts pressure on the mother’s hips, butt and back. When you exercise at Concept 10 10 during pregnancy, you improve your posture and get your back, hip, and butt muscles in shape, thus reducing back pain.
Naples resident, Andrea Compton can attest to this. The 30 year old mom is about 8 months pregnant with her second son. Her first pregnancy came with intense, nearly constant back pain. Trying to avoid pain again, Andrea signed up at Concept 10 10 about 6 months ago, and is now experiencing the benefits not only of building visible muscle tone, but also decreasing back pain. “I can only attribute it to Concept 10 10,” she said. Working full time and being mom to Preston, (1 year old), Andrea is pressed for time, with Concept 10 10’s 20 minutes per week, Andrea finds it easy to fit into her schedule.
Is that short time frame a cop out for a pregnant woman. No way! It’s what all clients do to stay in optimal shape and, due to Concept 10 10’s intensity, it’s plenty.
Unlike Andrea, it’s not uncommon for pregnant women to fear injury from working out. She knows now that Concept 10 10 provides the optimal environment for expectant mothers looking to get in shape and stay in shape because of a personal, one-on-one trainer who is always present to monitor proper movement. This ensures that all exercises are slow and controlled while foregoing the impact or contact of many other sports and activities.
“Not only does Concept 10 10 present no risk of injury, it prevents risk of injury”, Jorgen said.
Pregnancy puts a lot of strain on the body, including carrying extra weight 24/7. A lot of women get permanent damage, such as varicose veins, because they are not strong enough to deal with it. Exercise prevents this.
“The worst thing you could do is do nothing thinking it’s protecting the fetus.” Jorgen said.
“You may shun away from normal sports to avoid risk of injury, but here at Concept 10 10 there is absolutely no risk of injury.”
Unlike tennis or any higher impact sport, Concept 10 10 is safe because there is no contact.
Due to the personal trainer, you won’t be left vulnerable to move in a way that could cause injury to yourself or the unborn baby.
There’s also a big difference between high-intensity and high-impact. Concept 10 10 is high-intensity, but minimal to no impact.
The benefits include an increased ease in getting back to pre-pregnancy weight and shape, particularly due to factors such as boosting the metabolism.
Regular exercise minimizes the likelihood of gaining too much weight during pregnancy, often reduces the duration of labor and frequently leads to a leaner healthy birth weight for the baby.
Pregnant women can keep up with their non-pregnant peers despite what their bodies are going through. There is only one machine that most pregnant women will find they can no longer use during the latter part of their pregnancy. The abdominal machine won’t be used about half-way into most pregnancies, Jorgen said. Please consult your doctor prior to engaging in any fitness routine.
