Birth & Beyond Fitness
We offer several fitness class options that can evolve with you through your pregnancy and beyond into parenthood. Exercising throughout your pregnancy has so many benefits for you and your growing baby, such as better sleep, decreased discomfort, improved self-image, reduced stress and preparation for childbirth. Regular exercise after pregnancy can promote weight loss, relieve stress, boost your mood and restore muscle strength. In addition, exercise habits established at the beginning of motherhood can last a lifetime and provide profound benefits for the mother, baby and other family.
