What kinds of pregnancy sports are available to me?
If you decided to work out during your pregnancy, we would first like to congratulate you! Exercising during your pregnancy is a lot of fun, but of course it is also extremely healthy for you! But just by making the decision to take up a pregnancy sport, you are not there yet; you also need to know which sport you are going to do. Of course, you can go swimming, but what other options do you have? To help you make this choice, here are three of the most popular pregnancy sports in a row: Mom in Balance, ZwangerFit, and Yoga.
Mom in Balance
With Mom in Balance, you are able to train outdoors all year round. The training schedule consists of full-body workouts that help you strengthen your whole body and improve your fitness. During pregnancy, the focus of the workout is on the back and pelvic floor, so that your body can continue to carry your child well. Postpartum, the focus is mainly on the pelvic floor, so that you recover as quickly as possible. (MominBalance)
ZwangerFit helps you stay in shape throughout pregnancy by training under the expert guidance of physiotherapists. With ZwangerFit you can stay as fit as possible throughout pregnancy and make a faster recovery postpartum. ZwangerFit is designed for the period from the 16th week of pregnancy to 4-6 weeks to even 9 months postpartum.
Yoga is perhaps the most well-known pregnancy sport. With yoga, you keep moving in a healthy way and help your body prepare for the birth of your child and everything that involves. Yoga allows you to move more loosely and to do exercises to train your body at your own level, whether you are a beginner or advanced.
