We’re excited to announce the launch of our brand new maternity program on Aaptiv. Starting this month, we’ll be rolling out workouts for every trimester of pregnancy, plus stroller jogging workouts to help you feel healthy postpartum.
We’ve joined forces with pregnancy and exercise guru Kira Kohrherr of FitBump and our pre- and post-natal certified Aaptiv trainers Amanda, Rochelle, and Jaime to bring you safe, effective workouts that will prep your body and mind for the unique physical changes and challenges that pregnancy brings. We’re going beyond pre-natal yoga to bring you classes you’ll look forward to.
No more worry
Pregnancy brings with it a lot of questions for moms-to-be. Can you still do a push-up? How do you ask for help at the gym when you’re not ready to announce your pregnancy to the whole world? That’s where Aaptiv comes in. With our audio expertise we’re able to bring you the instruction you need from trainers who have been through the same physical changes you’re experiencing. We’ll help you workout safely and with confidence all within the privacy of headphones so you can have a healthier, happier pregnancy.
Why a maternity program?
At Aaptiv we’re committed to meeting our members where they are. Whether that means providing them with various types of workouts that can be done at home or at the gym, or creating different levels of workouts—from beginner to advanced—we meet our members’ needs in an individual way so we can positively impact their fitness journeys.
For women, that journey often includes pregnancy. Pregnancy represents one of the most significant periods of change a women will experience in her entire life, both physically and mentally. We noticed there was no fitness routine out there that specifically prepares a woman to train her body safely and effectively throughout every trimester.
Our desire to support pregnant women by providing them with a fitness resource for pregnancy, combined with our greater mission as a fitness company to meet people where the are, drove us to solve that problem with our pregnancy workouts.
More than just pre-natal yoga
Our program incorporates multiple formats of exercise, different trainers and methods of training, and uses our signature style of personal one-on-one coaching to give that extra motivation you need to stay healthy and strong during pregnancy.
Our first launch in this program is for the first trimester. This program consists of 32 workouts tailored specifically to how your body will be feeling and functioning for weeks 5-12 of your pregnancy. Each week you’ll work out with a new Aaptiv trainer and take on two cardio workouts and two strength workouts. Do them in order or just repeat the weekly classes that you love.
We’re also bringing you articles and Q&A series on our blog to help you feel informed and prepared for a healthy pregnancy. Have pregnancy related questions? We’ve got a great Pregnancy FAQ with pregnancy guru and blogger Kira Kohrherr of Fit Bump, check it out here.
