Working Out For Two (or More)

CrossFit Intrepid Mamas
There’s no doubt exercising while growing a little person inside of you is beneficial.  The controversy seems to be in the intensity and selection of movements and weights.  It’s also important to not push to the point of exhaustion or over-heating and to switch gears from setting PRs to maintenance, which is tough for any CrossFitter.  When I was pregnant, I found it was harder than I expected to scale back from certain movements or weights. In a regular group class, when I heard the familiar “3-2-1-GO,” I felt like Pavlov’s dog, conditioned to come out of the gates as hard as I could.

So I’m excited to announce our newest class for our CrossFit mamas, both pregnant and postpartum. We’ve already held two informal classes and it’s been a blast. Classes will consist of a warm up, strength focus, a workout, and some stretching. We’ll discuss how the physiological changes that occur from pregnancy and how we move and apply that to CrossFit movements.   We’ll differentiate between being able to do a movement and doing it with good mechanics with altered center of gravity and super lax joints and ligaments.

After birth, there is a journey to reclaiming your fitness and this class will address the groundwork to make it happen safely efficiently.    Moms are welcome as early as 6 weeks postpartum and are welcome even with older children if they are still feeling the effects of past pregnancies.  So whether you bun in the oven is the size of a little bean or your toddler is running circles around you, this class may be beneficial to you.  There will sweating and lots of work done, but at a pace appropriate for each mom’s stage of pregnancy, fitness level, and lifting experience.

There’s also nothing better than spending time with other mamas, trading stories, commiserating, and supporting each other.  The classes are scheduled according to available time slots each week (mostly Thursdays and Sundays).  Currently this class is free so please email Ruth if you would like to be included in the email list.
