Within the last decade, the prenatal and postpartum fitness industry has expanded exponentially, but without regulations. In fact, the fitness industry on the whole is not yet regulated by a governing body. For example, in every one of the United States, anyone can call themselves a personal trainer, even if they have no experience, training, certification, or license.
We hold our instructors to the highest standards, require them to hold certifications in prenatal fitness and our Head of Training and Development makes sure everyone stays on top of the latest research.
Yes! You are safe with us even if you’ve never worked out before. Our classes are designed specifically for the pregnant and postpartum body. We pride ourselves in being at the forefront of perinatal fitness. All our classes have been developed using the most current, science based research. We offer small classes for optimal attention, a range of modifications to meet all fitness levels and our instructors are trained with the most extensive prenatal and postpartum certifications in the industry.
While we don’t require documentation, we ask that you get your practitioners approval before beginning our workout. We are happy to speak with your provider should they have any questions. Just have them email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to them right away!
As often as you’d like. We are huge proponents of moving every day during your pregnancy! Our classes are designed to suit all energy levels during your pregnancy, from tired to high energy. It’s also never too early to start and it is completely safe to continue up until your delivery.
Our Pump & Kegel® foundation is the key to moving safely through your pregnancy and postpartum recovery. It was developed specifically to prevent AND heal Diastasis Recti and protect the pelvic floor.

We can offer private sessions for anyone that isn’t ready for our general classes or navigating specific conditions. Once you are strong enough, we’ll introduce you into our community classes! At FPC we are looking to act as a community for mothers and mothers-to-be so even if you are taking advantage of our private sessions, we encourage you to participate in our group classes in order to build relationships with women who are in the same stage of their lives. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about private training rates and availability.
First and foremost, we ask that you always listen to your body and do what feels best. We encourage interaction and feedback between you and the instructor in all our classes.. If you begin to feel ill, experience pain, or a movement doesn’t feel good,, the instructor can guide you into a restorative pose or offer a modification. Your comfort is a priority. We ask that you inform us about anything that seems out of the ordinary or you have a question about. Our instructors are well versed in common pregnancy conditions and have modifications that will safely guide your through our classes.
Yes. We keep our class sizes small in order to provide you with the best personalized instruction. Please arrive at least 5 min before class. Otherwise your spot may be given to someone on the waitlist. Please note that no one will be admitted more than 10 min after class begins. This is done to ensure your body is properly warmed up and ready for the progression of exercises. *If it’s your prenatal first class or first postpartum class back, we require that you arrive at least 10 min prior to the start of class in order to check in with the instructor. First timers won’t be permitted to take class if you arrive after class begins. Thank you in advance for understanding!
All equipment will be provided. While we have a water cooler, but we recommend you bring your own water bottle. Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in and no shoes are needed. We also ask that you please be respectful of the instructor and other class members and not use your cell phone during class, but DO take advantage of gushing to your friends about us via social media before and after!
We welcome pre-crawlers into all our postpartum classes! We have a changing table station and we are nursing and pumping friendly.

You can try a few things to ﬁx this:
You can! Casting enables you to use Google Cast or Apple AirPlay to stream our videos to a compatible TV. You simply tap the icon in the control bar to stream on a cast-compatible device.
If no compatible device is detected by the player, no cast icon will appear. So, if you don’t see the icon, first make sure you are near the compatible device and that the device is on.
The short answer is no. However, we understand that pregnancy and motherhood is unpredictable so we are happy to come up with a creative solution we both feel good about. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org for a conversation.
Unfortunately, we can never offer refunds on gift cards.
