Exercise during pregnancy with Live Life Get Active

Continuing our series of member stories here’s one from a mother of 3 in Menai who shares how she has benefited from continuing to exercise during pregnancy.

My name is Emily and I’m a 32 year old mother to 3 kids, 5yrs, 4yrs and 1 1/2 yrs and one more on he way.
I have been been with Live Life Get Active since the first launch week in Menai in February 2014. At the time I was nine weeks pregnant with my third child. I wanted to stay active throughout my pregnancy and build up strength to help my back and core. The absolutely fantastic trainer helped me train each week with my ever growing belly and constantly made sure I was safe and activities were altered to suit my needs.
With the trainer’s help and my training sessions 2 to 3 times a week I was able to stay very fit, very healthy and gain no unnecessary excess weight while I was pregnant. I even came to training on my due date and 7 days later, going into labour that night 🙂

This greatly helped my labour process and recovery afterwards was fantastic. I was back to training within a few weeks where I was once again supported with gaining back core strength and pelvic stability. I even participated in a 7 km mud run with my trainer only 10 weeks after I had my son.

Live Life Get Active sessions have allowed me to build my strength and fitness levels so I can keep up with or even run ahead of my kiddies 🙂
I’m now pregnant with my fourth child and again have exercised with Live Life Get Active throughout the whole pregnancy. Can’t wait to have my baby and get right back into training full steam ahead.
I will be a Live Life Get Active member as long as they are here.

Thanks so much to Emily for sharing her story about how we’ve helped her through her pregnancies, and to Nicola Jones the trainer at the Menai camp.
