Prenatal Classes for the Growing Family

To help mothers-to-be stay healthy during pregnancy, Echelon UK instructor Sage put together a prenatal series while pregnant with her daughter. During the prenatal program, you will find exercises that are safe for all stages of pregnancy. Each 15-minute workout can be done alone or combined with any other prenatal program for a well-rounded, full-body workout. The program includes:

  • Prenatal Mobility: Comprised of exercises that help keep a full range of motion through your joints and strengthen the muscles surrounding them to create the stability you need to stay fit and mobile.
  • Prenatal Core: Core exercises help to keep your abdominal muscles and glutes strong through pregnancy. These safe, practical exercises will help stabilize and strengthen your mid-section during your pregnancy and assist in your postnatal recovery.
  • Prenatal Upper Body: Low impact, light-weight strength training designed to target arm and back muscles that are integral to maintaining good posture and support your day-to-day activities.
  • Prenatal Lower Body: Low-impact, lower body exercises designed to activate the largest muscles in your body. They are crucial to providing stability and strength throughout your pregnancy, labor, and recovery.

If your family includes members over the age of 13, cycling could be the way to go! Echelon cycling classes offer a wide range of difficulty levels paired with must from every era so everyone can find their fit. Some cycling highlights:

  • Teen Fusion Rides: A medley ride of strength, power, and speed designed for teens. These classes feature clean music, more descriptive instructions, and can be a little less challenging than the regular fusion classes.
  • Brunch with the Hagers: Led by married instructors Brian and Amy Hager, these fun classes are great for adults and even better for the family with two bikes!
