Galina Denzel Training the Pregnant Client

Galina Denzel weight training for women

A pregnancy-specific approach

In this lecture, Galina teaches a complete system for training and program design during pregnancy. She covers major physiological changes and ties these together with objectives and practical solutions for use in training pregnant women. This lecture is a must for everyone who trains pregnant clients, and would be useful to all pregnant women who want to stay active during pregnancy.

“It seems like we have come a long way, but it really isn’t so. Those programs just offer a modification of the typical endurance, strength or flexibility program to make up for the positions a woman is considered to be able to take, and have a goal to make exercise go around pregnancy, instead of being specifically targeted at pregnancy. This makes the role of the health or fitness professional extremely important in designing a specific exercise program.” ~Galina Denzel

LECTURER BIO

Galina Denzel, NSCA-CPT, is a pre- and postnatal expert who works both in the US and Bulgaria. She is a personal trainer, nutrition counselor, writer and educator. You can learn more from her or order her books via her website at eatloveandtrain.com.

“Since my coauthors and I published The New Rules of Lifting for Women in 2008, I’ve gotten a lot of questions from readers about how to train during and after pregnancy. My own experience begins and ends with my wife’s three pregnancies. Each was just different enough from the others to leave me convinced that pregnant women need exercise advice from a real expert. But which one? Doctors, who should know better, default to advice that’s deliberately timid, treating all pregnancies as too risky to allow anything more aggressive than walking or yoga. Galya offers the perfect antidote. After explaining that trainers who work with pregnant clients will deal with a range that includes athletes, complete beginners, and everything in between, Galya emphasizes that the goal is to get those women to the finish line: a body that’s properly prepared for a natural delivery, with as few complications as possible. Galya’s explanations (delivered in her charming Eastern European accent) are clear, interesting, and 100 percent useful for any trainer who works with pregnant clients. Listening to this reminded me of how ignorant I felt during my wife’s pregnancies, and made me happy to know I now have this great new resource to recommend to my readers.”
Lou Schuler

“I have been training pregnant women for nearly five years, long enough to have come across many situations for which I was not fully prepared. I wish I would have had access to Galina’s knowledge and expertise when I started! In this talk she covers topics not covered in some pre- and post-natal courses, but which are nonetheless important when dealing with real individuals who have situations textbooks may not prepare you for. Galina’s experience and compassion combined with deep study of physiology are apparent and make this knowledge a worthy addition for anyone who works with a pregnant population.”
