Pregnancy Fitness: Prenatal and Postnatal Classes at BASE

From April 26th 2018 our certified prenatal and postnatal training coach Gale will be running specialist classes for pregnant women and those bouncing back after giving birth!

The postantal classes are available at both our Sathorn and Thonglor locations with booking details at the bottom.

Classes must be pre-booked and are limited to 8 prenatal mums and 12 postnatal mums. This is to ensure that everyone gets adequate attention and care.

Please bring a doctor’s note or certificate stating that the pregnancy is progressing normally and you are cleared to exercise.

Gale and the team at BASE are passionate about helping women develop the strength needed for a healthy pregnancy and birth.

Through a sensible and committed approach, Gale recovered quickly from birth and regained her previous levels of fitness. She’s now on a mission to help other women do the same!

Prenatal Class

A strength training class designed to prepare you for the endurance of pregnancy and labor, and to help speed your postpartum recovery.

This program will activate muscles that tend to get weak during pregnancy. Such as your core, pelvic floor, hamstrings and glutes, while help maintain and build your overall strength. Expect to do resistance training at an easy to moderate level and meet other like-minded mums to be.

Most exercises are safe to perform during pregnancy for healthy women, as long as you exercise with caution and listen to your body.

You will be training with Gale Ruttanaphon, an ACE certified trainer and pre and post-natal certified coach as well as a mother.  In this class, Gale will show you exercises that are safe to perform during pregnancy and unsafe exercises to avoid.

Exercise during pregnancy benefits both the mother and the baby. Some of the benefits the mother will experience include increased energy level, improved mood, weight control, decreased chance of pregnancy related illnesses such gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, back pain etc.  When done correctly, exercise during pregnancy will also help to deliver a strong and healthy baby.
