Hi. I’m Abbi Holland.
I am a REPS Level 3 Personal Trainer with a specialism in ante and post natal fitness (how handy!) and most importantly I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with my first baby….a boy due in December. Exercise is a huge part of my life and I’m very happy to be able to share with you my hints and tips on how to keep in good fitness and keep a good healthy shape whilst you are pregnant.
My first trimester was a bit horrid as the nausea really knocked me for six and the only thing that helped me was gentle exercise. I took to walking a lot as I couldn’t face the tube or bus for fear of any “accidents” but in fact, walking offered me a great chance to keep fit and generally get to see new parts of London! For those of you that don’t consider walking exercise, you are very wrong! I can safely say that the uneven surfaces and the regular motion of purposeful strides create a great workout and you’d be surprised to hear that you can burn some serious calories if you get a pace on!
