A common question I hear is - "what's the benefit of working with a personal trainer at home?"
I totally get it. Many of us want to follow a plan on our own, in our time. A personal trainer is both a time and financial commitment, which is why it's important to know what a personal trainer can ACTUALLY do for you!
If you are pregnant/postpartum and don’t have the education around how to safely workout, doing things on your own can do more harm than good.
Here are 3 reasons why you should work with a personal trainer (that specializes in pre/postnatal fitness!)
If we are meeting for the first time - Hi! Welcome to Vibrant Mama Wellness! My name is Megan, and I am a pre and postnatal personal trainer. I am certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, with a specialization in pre+postnatal fitness through Pronatal fitness. I am a mom to a toddler, and pregnant with my second baby!

Every pregnancy and birth is different. Not only does every woman have a different experience, but she could have a different experience for every single pregnancy she goes through! Having a one-size-fits-all approach for pregnancy and postpartum is not all that effective. What is safe for one woman isn’t safe for another. And sadly a lot of people don’t figure this out until it’s too late!
You’ll know if you’re doing exercises correctly. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard women talking about a core/pelvic floor program they’re doing and say “I don’t know if I’m doing this right.” Spoiler: if you don’t know, chances are YOU AREN’T. The fitness industry is obsessed with obtaining visible ab muscles, and while this is fine, the problem lies in the fact that no one is really teaching you HOW to properly engage your core. And when you are pregnant/postpartum and not properly engaging your core, this can cause A LOT of unpleasant side effects
Extra motivation and accountability. This one goes without saying! When you have another person to help you work towards your goals, you’re more likely to achieve them.
You get a workout plan that is completely tailored to YOUR BODY and YOUR GOALS! Like I said above, everyones body is different. Having a plan specific to your body and goals makes all the difference!
Still on the fence and wondering if personal training is right for you? Send me a DM on Instagram, or fill out the form HERE to see if working together would be a good fit! I currently offer personal training at home via zoom sessions, or completely remote!
