Gaining a qualification in training pregnant women or those that have recently given birth is rapidly becoming a growing strategy for many personal trainers. Taking care of existing clients who have become pregnant or gaining new clients who are looking for a specialist instructor is a great way of expanding your client base.
As a result, there is a rising need for insight from PTs with pre and post-natal personal trainer qualifications – a potential gap in the market for you.
Health and Fitness Education have a unique course dedicated to pre and post natal training – designed to teach you the skills to help women adapt their fitness regime for safe exercise during and after pregnancy.
On top of this specialist knowledge, you receive a qualification worth 20 CPD points with the register of Exercise Professionals and can put that towards the wider Level 3 Special Populations Diploma.
A good pre and post natal fitness instructor will be a new mum’s most trusted ally in helping to get her confidence back, and so she will tell all her friends after you get her back in shape – potentially increasing your client base even further.
So it’s a win, win situation – pre and post natal training is a supportive, more cautious pace of training, but it is hugely rewarding and could gain you many loyal clients in the future.
