Post Pregnancy Workout for the Modern Women!

Being a Pole Fitness Mom, Before and After!

Kerri's before and After Picture

I am the first at the JM Kennedy Dance & Pole Fitness Studio to have what we like to joke about as a “Pole Baby”.  Yes, taking Pole Fitness classes made me feel sexier and then before I knew it… “Oops!”…here’s my pole baby.  I had my son in July and in September I was back in the studio taking classes.  By October I was ready to perform in front of an audience for our annual Halloween Show and by January I was teaching Pole Fitness classes for the first time.

For the ladies out there that may currently be pregnant, I do not recommend pole fitness as a source of exercise.  With the pregnancy, it limits the number of safe moves you can perform and it’s just not worth the risk.  There are many types of safe exercises you can perform while pregnant like walking, swimming and yoga. I also recommend using coco butter daily to avoid stretch marks.

I also recommend that you wait at least 12 weeks after having the baby before taking pole fitness classes.  It does take time to gain the strength back and get your muscles back into shape after giving birth.  Even the students out there that haven’t had a baby know,  if you miss a few months or even weeks of pole you’re not going to be as strong as before. Don’t get discouraged, your muscle memory will come back. I am living proof of that.

If you’re looking for a way to get back into shape and be the sexy mama you know you are, pole fitness is the way to go!
