The Greenasium offers Pregnancy Fitness Class

Greenasium Fitness Studio, in Encinitas, is now offering a drop-in Pregnancy Fitness Class, from 10 to 11 a.m., every Saturday. For women in all three trimesters of pregnancy, the intensity level of each class session will be moderate and includes pelvis stability work, cardio and bodyweight exercises, balance and stretching.

“Women who exercise through pregnancy have reduced complications, an improved sense of well-being, shorter labor and a speedier recovery after delivery,” explains the Greenasium’s Jacquie Forester. “On average, an active pregnant woman gains around eight pounds less than a sedentary one. The prenatal exercise program at the Greenasium includes a brochure of local resources, such as prenatal massage therapists, specialized nutritionists, midwives and photographers who specialize in baby bump portraits.”


Cost: $10. Location: 1465 Encinitas Blvd., Encinitas, CA 92024. For additional information, call 760-944-1235 or visit TheGreenasium.com
