Workshop for New Parents: The Do’s and Don’ts of PostPartum Fitness

Workshop for New Parents: The Do’s and Don’ts of PostPartum Fitness

Coming up on May 18th at 11 am: Workshop for New Parents: The Do’s and Don’ts of PostPartum Fitness with Meghan Mizrachi!

You were cleared to return to exercise at your six week check up, but your doctor didn’t give any instructions or guidance on how to do it safely and effectively. Maybe you’re still wearing an abdominal brace or you’re worried you have an abdominal separation. Maybe you’re still having some leakage or back pain? or perhaps a sense of heaviness and are afraid that working out will make it worse. Maybe you tried to dive back into your routine but found that things didn’t feel quite right.

This lecture with Meghan Mizrachi is designed to provide clarity on the steps to take after pregnancy, in order to have the confidence to achieve a pain-free lifestyle and reach your fitness goals. She will cover screening for diastasis, the truth about sit-ups, advice about postural behavior, the best exercises for core strengthening, and safe exercise progressions.

The workshop is held at our JC Fitness Fair at City Hall Plaza, Jersey City.

Register HERE.
