Powering through
Training Plateaus

 

Now and then even the most focused person can start to feel stuck with their training and fitness. Sometimes we can find that our regular training and lifestyle that used to see us making great gains just isn't cutting it. All that is required is a professional set of eyes to look at what's happening taking into account an array of factors to find a wealth of ways you can push past your plateau. These can be anything from an epiphany about sleep or nutrition, to discovering new techniques or a better understanding of how our body works in relation to what we are trying to achieve. 

Frankie Fit Testimonial
Frankie Fit Customer Feedback

Client Case Study

 

“I found Frankie at a complete low point in my life, had so much going on in my home life and at work. I had really hit rock bottom. When we first met she took me through a plan gently and encouragingly, I had felt like I had a mountain to climb. The thing that really sticks with me was her advice to change one thing even if just breakfast, then when ready change another. I still use this mindset. She set me on a path that changed my approach to wellness and exercise. 

 

I found a love for food in a healthy way and used her as a springboard to find a love for moving more. A few years have gone by now. I was 100lbs heavier and hid in the shadows scared to do anything. I took part in the Royal Parks half marathon in October, I now run most days and I’m training to be a Yoga teacher.

 

The thing I have to thank Frankie for is giving me back my confidence and discovering I was capable of so many things! Her Patience, tenacity and belief helped me stick with it for way beyond our sessions. It became a way of living not just a training program. Thank you Frankie” 

– Janine

“Frankie is a fantastic trainer. She has built up my strength and flexibility in a way that has meant no injuries! I hate exercise but Frankie makes it fun and gets results."

– Teresa

“I can't emphasise what a difference Frankie has made to my life! In just five weeks, I lost 3/4 stone, toned up and dropped 2 dress sizes, my energy level increased and my body felt like it was working properly again!”  

 

— Rosanna, Mother of 2

Antenatal Personal Training

 

A good physical condition prior to pregnancy is important and will enhance a mother’s ability to lead an active lifestyle throughout her 3 trimesters. Throughout the various stages of pregnancy amendments will be made to exercises to insure the best support and comfort for your training for yourself and your little one. You will have a fun, relaxed, informative training session tailored to you and your needs on the day. We will combine light cardio exercise with work on core, posture and overall muscle tone. Posture and core being of massive importance during and after pregnancy. Sessions will be taken at your own pace with an emphasis on ‘feeling good’! The notion that “Mum knows best” is something I like to follow during ante natal and post natal classes. There will be some days where you are full of energy and ready for a fitness session and others where you feel more sapped. We work with what we have on the day and alter sessions accordingly.

The benefits of exercising during pregnancy with FrankieFit include:

  • Better circulation. Mother and baby’s circulation are inter-related through the placenta so anything affecting the mother’s circulation can affect the baby

  • Less backache, improved posture and reduction of pregnancy symptoms: constipation, varicose veins and leg cramps

  • A faster post natal recovery

  • Control of excess weight gain and enhanced psychological well-being

  • Improved sleep patterns

  • Enhanced self-image and confidence

  • Increased body awareness

  • Some effect on mother’s ability to cope with labour and child birth as well as faster post natal recovery

  • A beneficial effect on the course of labour

  • There are matters of consideration which will covered during FrankieFit training being mindful of not over stretching due to a hormone known as relaxing being released during and post pregnancy, watching the movement of the hips, maintaining good posture, working with pelvic floor and core muscles to maintain integrity from within.

Postnatal Personal Training 


When can you come back to exercise?

When coming back to exercise following the childbirth there are some important factors to consider. First of all please make sure you have had your 6 week post natal check up. Mothers who have experienced delivery by caesarean section should delay this further to approximately 8-12 weeks.

What can you do in the meantime to prepare your body for exercise?

  • When safe to do so daily walks are encouraged. Aim to increase the pace and length of the walk gradually over the 6-8 week period. Attention to posture and the height of the pram handle are vitally important.

  • Static contractions are the most effective and safest exercise which can be performed almost immediately following childbirth. These are performed when trying to pull the tummy in as much and as often as possible.

  • Pelvic floor work can be carried out by making simple contractions of your pelvic floor muscles. Taking time to gain control of these muscles soon after birth will be beneficial. These exercises can be carried out at anytime for short set of say 5 reps to begin with holding each rep for a short period of time to begin with. Why not get into a routine at do the exercises every time you change a nappy? Or if that’s too much to begin with before an evening feed?

Some of the benefits of Post Natal Fitness with FrankieFit

  • Enhance self confidence.

  • Weight loss. Though this is more of a long term aim and should not be a major consideration during the immediate post natal period.

  • Re-tone pelvic floor to regain control of bladder

  • Re-tone abdominal muscles to increase strength and enable them to support the spine and regain figure

  • Develop better posture/ regain good posture in basic daily tasks, essential in back care

What will a Post Natal Fitness Session involve?

  • Sessions are tailored to you as an individual and will take into account your fitness prior to and during pregnancy, your labour, any complications, the health of your baby and achieving your goals be it improved fitness, weight loss, confidence and more.

  • The sessions are fun, relaxed and informative combining cardiovascular exercise with work on core, posture and overall muscle tone. Sessions will be taken at your own pace with an emphasis on ‘feeling good’.

  • Return to exercise post pregnancy should be gradual and at your own pace. It is vital to allow your body adequate time to rest and recuperate. A simple rule to follow both ante and post natal is ‘Mum knows best’!
