What is Fitball ?
With the help of a stability ball you will stretch, strengthen and tone your body. The class will focus on strengthening the pelvic floor, the abdominal area and the back. You will always have the opportunity to go gently or to challenge yourself depending on how you are feeling.
It is also a great postnatal exercise program for women with a raised BMI or for women that have gained excess weight through pregnancy.
Health benefits and goals:
The benefits that can be achieved through Fitball include:
- improved muscle strength and tone
- maintaining flexibility and balance
- weight management and increased muscle-to-fat ratio
- greater stamina
- improved mobility
- improved posture
- improved back strength
When can you start exercise after birth?
It’s generally advisable to wait for your six-week postnatal check-up before you start to exercise again. If you had a caesarean birth you will probably have to wait a little longer (perhaps eight to 10 weeks) for your body to recover before you start doing exercise.
Please consult your doctor if you’re unsure whether you’re fit enough to be taking part in these sports.
Will I need any Equipment?
There’s no equipment needed, the ball will be provided at the venue. All you will need is comfortable workout clothes, a towel and water.
