About this Event

Pre/Postnatal Fitness: Safe and Effective Training Strategies

(.5 NASM CEU’s)

Getting regular exercise is one of the best things a pregnant woman can do for her body, both during her nine-month prenatal journey as well as during her postnatal recovery. By following the proper guidelines, maternity fitness can be a safe and rewarding experience for both trainer and client. In this AAPT course, you will learn how to develop sound training programs that address the unique biomechanical and physiological changes occurring during the pre- and postnatal period. Programming for resistance, cardiovascular and flexibility training is discussed in detail, with insight provided on how to modify techniques based on the individual needs of the client. Contraindications to exercise are addressed with respect to each trimester.

Course Learning Objectives

  • To prepare the student to understand various terminology related to pregnancy
  • Recognize the data and statistics
  • Review basic human physiology and responses to exercise
  • Identify various body changes that occur during pregnancy
  • Instruct clients on evidence-based exercises and fitness goals that are important to include in exercise programs for women who are prenatal, pregnant, or postpartum
  • Recognize the symptoms of overtraining in both the mother and the fetus
  • Recommend and demonstrate exercises for relieving discomfort and relief of symptoms for the pregnant participant
  • Select and integrate mind-body exercises, effective breathing, and relaxation techniques into an exercise program for pregnant women
  • How to assess each client’s needs based on pregnancy trimester and/or fitness level, and how to modify exercises to correspond with their physical needs throughout pregnancy and beyond.

About Instructor Ted Bertini:

Ted has been a part of the health and physical fitness industry for more than 20 years – like most members of our faculty, he’s quite the Superman. We still don’t know how he can fit so much into a single day of work without losing the creative energy that drives him in each class.

Ted started his career through an undergraduate Health Education degree. He went on to get a graduate degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology. As a graduate student at Northeastern University, he became Lab Director of their outpatient maximal stress-testing laboratory. There, Ted oversaw lab technicians conducting a thorough range of fitness and body composition tests, such as maximal stress testing, pulmonary function testing, underwater weighing, skin-fold testing, health history screening, and exercise assessment interpretation. He also managed the instruction of undergraduate Exercise Physiology students conducting classroom experiments in the testing lab.

Once he completed his work at Northeastern, Ted was the Physical Fitness Director for multiple local YMCAs, supervising employee recruitment & training and wellness center growth projects. While working with the YMCA, Ted was chosen to be a Faculty-level Instructor for the group’s newest baseline Fitness Instructor training program. Ted oversaw bringing the training course back to Massachusetts.

Currently, Ted is an AAPT Faculty Instructor and Academic Manager, an AHA CPR Instructor, a Healthy Back Instructor, a Strength Training Instructor, an active personal trainer, a full-time Operations Manager for a tech company, and a family man. Ted focuses on fitness programming for special populations, such as youth and senior clientele, clients with metabolic disorders, kidney disease, cardiac maintenance needs, and other special health concerns. Also – his favorite color is orange.
