PRENATAL & POSTNATAL PROGRAMS
Prenatal and Postnatal programs encourage healthy and active living in the months during and after your pregnancy. Please ensure that you consult your family physician before starting any prenatal or postnatal fitness program. If you are unsure if a particular program is suitable for you, please stop by before the beginning of any class and have a quick chat with the instructor. They will help recommend some options for you. All instructors have the appropriate training/certifications for providing specialized instruction for their programs.
