Singapore’s first and only Couple Prenatal Pilates class that allows parents-to-be to exercise together. Exercising together with your partner is a fun way to relieve stress and keep the romance alive. Couple Prenatal Pilates class is a 55minute workout specially designed for expectant mums in their second or third trimester. Prenatal Pilates strengthens back, abdominal and pelvic floor muscles without straining other joints, which helps to stabilize the body by improving balance & posture, and reduces the risk of injuries and body aches.
PARENT’S WORLD – Pilates aims to build core strength by toning your abdominals and pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy.
TODAY’S PARENTS – Pilates is practiced widely to tone the body and improve posture and can also be used for weight loss.

What’s in it for dad-to-be?
During the class, the instructor customizes each exercise for husbands of expecting moms to enjoy similar benefits of Pilates.Each class has a maximum of 6 preggies or 5 couples. Preggies may choose to attend alone or with their loved one. *An additional charge of $5 per class is required for each participant.
Ng Ju Ann – My arms and shoulders are mad weak already from the lack of exercise since I got pregnant. It was actually more challenging (in a good way) than I thought it would be and a lot more fun.
I’m so glad the husband enjoyed himself and found the variations that the instructor gave him challenging enough not to be bored. The pregnant ones like myself get a slightly different routine because we have special needs. We don’t get to exercise together often and I think this is a great way to bond and spend time together!

June – I’m thankful that hubby has been really supportive! So far, he’s been attending all the classes with me. The bonus is he’s also benefitting from the classes too. He’s been wearing a slouchy posture for a long time due to frequent computer work, and these exercises help to improve his posture by strengthening the core ab muscles and the back and shoulder muscles.
Although the lessons are held at a slower pace to cater to us preggie mums, the hubbies have to deal with greater weight resistance, so don’t think they can just breeze through the class okay! Read June’s exercise during pregnancy experience at Pilates Fitness.
