General

Do I need medical clearance before I begin?


You sure do! If you are pregnant or postnatal, it’s important to have clearance from your doctor or medical practitioner before you begin.




When can I start?


Prenatal: you can start the program at any stage of pregnancy however, if you are in your first trimester you can still do all regular classes on Go Chlo On Demand. To do this, you do not need to subscribe to Prenatal and Postnatal. After the first trimester, we recommend you only do the Prenatal classes. Postnatal: you may start 6 weeks after the birth, or after you have medical clearance to exercise.




I’m new to Pilates, does that matter?


Absolutely not! This program is designed to suit all levels - beginner to advanced.




What are the benefits of Pilates in pregnancy?


There are so many but ultimately, Pilates is the perfect way to build the specific strength required of the body in pregnancy. This includes glute, leg, shoulder and upper body strength as well as postural stability. Pilates also helps build strength and enduarnce for labour, and also for postpartum. By focusing on the pelvic floor and deep core strength, parents are set for improved postnatal recovery, and abdominal separation recovery.





Prenatal

What prenatal Pilates video do I start with?


Start by watching the Prenatal Chat - it’s free to view! This chat is important to watch as it outlines how to use the classes, how they are going to help your body in pregnancy and what to watch out for in class.




I am in my 1st trimester. What classes should I do?


You can do either the Prenatal Program or the regular classes on Go Chlo On Demand. When you enter your second trimester, we recommend only doing Prenatal Pilates.




Can I do regular classes while pregnant?


In your first trimester, there are no restrictions on how you move your body so you can do all the classes on the platform, not only the Prenatal ones. That means you do not need to subscribe to Prenatal and Postnatal Pilates. We also recommend doing the Pelvic Floor and Breathing Video, as early as possible in your pregnancy! After the first trimester, stick to the Prenatal Program.




How do I use the Prenatal Pilates on Go Chlo On Demand?


Start by watching the Prenatal Chat video. This will outline how to use the platform and what to expect from it. Then, there is a daily Pelvic Floor and Breathing Video that is there for you to practice every day! Once you complete that each day, you have a selection of either full length classes or short classes (called Movement Snacks) to choose from. There are some that focus more on upper body, some lower body and some other spicy little challenges too!




How hard can I push myself?


The Prenatal Program is not easy! In fact, you are welcome to work your body hard in pregnancy! However, it is important to listen to your body and take breaks when needed. You should never feel short of breath, dizzy or lightheaded and if you do, sit out the exercise. Further, if you feel any point of pain or discomfort in your body, modify the exercise or sit that one out. If you have questions about this, contact your medical health professional or email chloe@gochlo.com




I want to try prenatal Pilates for my 2nd trimester. What classes should I do?


Once you enter your second trimester, we recommend only doing Prenatal Pilates. This is to ensure that the exercises are safe for you and the baby.





Postnatal

What postnatal Pilates video do I start with?


Start by watching the Postnatal Chat - it’s free to view! This chat outlines how to use the Program, what you are focusing on and what to expect.




What is a DRAM or diastasis rectus abdominis and how do I work on that?


Diastasis rectus abdominis (DRAM) is a stretch of the tissue at the front of the belly, called the linea alba. It is a normal part of pregnancy, as the muscles of the abdomen stretch to allow for space for the baby. After a baby, it’s important to have your DRAM assessed by a medical professional or physiotherapist. To improve and heal a DRAM postnatally, it’s important to incorporate pelvic floor, breathing and deep core exercises into your program. This is found in the Postnatal Abs video and is designed for you to do daily as you build up your strength. Please reach out with further questions.




What should I look out for in class?


With proper focus on pelvic floor and deep core engagement, you should be able to safely rebuild your abdominal strength. Look out for a “doming" of your abdominal muscles as this may be a sign that you aren’t engaging enough through those deep muscles, or that the exercise is too difficult for you.




How long should I do the Postnatal Program for?


There is no magic number here! You need to do the Postnatal Program until you have built up enough strength through your deep abdominal muscles and feel strong and supported in your body. We recommend an assessment with a Women’s Health Physiotherapist.





POSTNATAL / POSTPARTUM PILATES

Ready to start? 

Watch this free video to get a taste of Postnatal Pilates:

Go Chlo Pilates Postnatal Pilates information
What you get:
  • Pelvic Floor and Breathing Video to do daily
  • Postnatal Core Videos to safely activate through your core and rehabilitate the abdominal muscles 
  • Over 30 Movement Snacks (5 to 15 minute workouts)
  • Over 30 full length classes (30 and 45 minutes)
  • New videos added every week

Go Chlo's Postnatal Pilates is for you if:

You want to build up your strength after pregnancy and childbirth.


This is the number one request we get after a baby and you are in the right place. Postnatal Pilates is specifically designed to build up your whole body strength after a baby. This includes your deep core, abdominals and pelvic floor strength, pelvic stabilisers, postural muscles, arms, legs, back - everything!




You want to exercise in a way that’s safe and effective.


Safe and effective are our middle names! It’s important to build strength gradually postnatally, to be patient with your body and give yourself time to grow the foundational strength and stability you need. As a Physiotherapist, with many years experience working with postnatal clients, I know how to do this.




You want to rebuild your abdominal strength.


We have two daily videos for you to practice to do exactly that. One focuses on the deep activation of your pelvic floor and deep core muscles and the other, which focuses on your core and abdominals works on slowly building your strength, safely. It’s important to strengthen your abdominal muscles in a specific way, healing any muscle separation (diastasis rectus abdominis) that may be present. You’re in good hands.




You want to find a way to exercise that fits in with your busy life.


Life gets even busier with a baby and that’s why I have ten Movement Snacks (5 to 20 minute workouts) at your fingertips. These classes are designed to mix and match, depending on how much time you have to hit the mat. For example, you could pair a 15 minute arm workout with a 10 minute glute workout!




You want to feel strong, empowered and like your best self.


And you will! Let me guide you through this program and show you how. You got this babe!

I took Pilates with Chloe during my entire pregnancy and she made me feel so safe and supported throughout even though sometimes my body didn’t feel like my own.

 

I knew that her classes were always safe and appropriate because of her background in physiotherapy. 

 

But they were still so challenging and just felt worth it. 

Den

I absolutely love doing Prenatal Pilates with Go Chlo.

 

Her high energy and positive spirit kept you really motivated during the classes and always left you wanting to come back for more. 

 

And there’s also no better way than exercising in the comfort of your own home.

Sarah

Go Chlo Prenatal Pilates makes me feel so strong and powerful and like I am preparing my body for what it needs to do to give birth.

 

Doing Go Chlo Pilates has made my deep core so strong. I haven’t had any back pain throughout the pregnancy and I definitely attribute that to Go Chlo Pilates, and especially that she’s a physiotherapist. 

 

I really can’t recommend her highly enough.
