Fall Fitness: Pregnant? Pilates!

Stay Strong & Fit through your Pregnancy.


One the top reasons Pilates and pregnancy go together so well is that Pilates is great at building core strength. The exercises and stretches in prenatal pilates improve core strength—essential during pregnancy—by toning the back, abdominals, and pelvic floor/kegel muscles. If your abdominals, back, and pelvic floor/Kegel muscles are toned, they will support a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.

Pilates is also famous for helping new moms get their figures back after baby is born! Join other expecting moms in our Prenatal Pilates class, with instructor Stephanie Foster, owner and founder of Preggo Pilates.
