"I registered for this seminar to gain confidence in coaching and training pregnant women. I feel a lot more confident in my coaching abilities and my understanding of the changes the woman's body goes through during the course of her pregnancy and how to properly scale/modify workouts to her needs throughout."

Objectives of the Prokreate Seminar:

  • Learn pregnancy and postpartum anatomy.
  • Tools for mental and emotional support through each trimester and with new moms.
  • Building a network and how it can benefit you, your community, and your business.
  • The power of breathing, pacing, and helping clients practice for labor and parenthood.
  • Understand the core and pelvic floor; what movements aid healing, what movements can make issues worse.
  • Revisit basic class programming goals and how to modify according to woman’s stage.
  • Learn how pregnancy movement encourages fitness for labor in both mom and fetus and also optimal positioning for fetus.
  • Recommendations for new mom return, the postpartum healing process, what programming should include/not include, and why.

“The comprehensive nature of the course was extremely useful. I feel comfortable talking to clients and other healthcare professionals due to the extensive physiological and research based information provided.”

– Carolynn, CPT, Rochester

“The course was a lot of fun. As a male, it certainly broadens my understanding of a topic I’m not entirely familiar with. As a trainer, it makes me more aware of the natural processes of the female body in the scope of physical fitness.”

– Orrie, Owner Flatbush CrossFit

How are baby-bearing women dominating the gym scene?

Millennial women, ages 18-34, dominate fitness class attendance. They also train with personal trainers and weights more than Gen-X and baby-boomers.
  

18-34 year olds are asking for more social exercise, authentic experiences, calm atmospheres, & opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals.

Females dominate fitness classes 5:1 over males. Owners increase participation by offering programs relevant to millennial females & by increasing the quality of coaching.

Convenient location is the #1 reason for gym attendance followed by good vibes. If you don’t know how to create a safe atmosphere for women, you’re missing a huge % of clients.
