In Low Pressure Fitness classes we don’t do simple hypopressive exercises, we do much more. It is an innovative breathing and postural training where we combine myofascial stretching and neurodynamic and hypopressive exercises. We are the only certified in Belgium to provide this type of training.
Sitting down for hours with a bad posture and doing ab crunches which exert high pressure to the pelvic floor are day-to-day activities that induce back pain and loss of posture control.
Thanks to the hypopressive routine we strengthen the abdominal core, as they are rehabilitating exercises specific for recovery during post-partum because they are the best treatment to correct abdominal diastasis and to stimulate your pelvic floor.
The Low Pressure Fitness exercices are twice as effective as the Kegel exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor.
Diastasis recti correction
Reduction of the waistline perimeter
Recovery of the pelvic floor
Improve your sexual performance
Reeducation of the abdomen and favour a flat tummy
Doctor Arnold Kegel’s exercises are the most popular to train the pelvic floor by contracting the pubococcygeus muscle.
Although the Kegel exercises are not as effective as Low Pressure Fitness, in SuperBellies classes we will train Kegel to isolate the pelvic floor, since you shouldn’t do apnoeas and ab vacuum during pregnancy.

Strengthen and recover the pelvic floor

STRENGTHEN YOUR BODY
WHAT IS IT?
Our toning routines are based on strength exercises to increase your muscle condition. If our muscles are strong we can move with more ease and we won’t get tired so easily.
As you gain strength, your metabolism accelerates, which means that someone in shape will burn more calories than someone sedentary with the same type of exercise.
Increase your strength and energy
Correct your posture
Pregnant women can push more efficiently during labour
Accelerate your metabolism and help burn fat faster
Reduces the need of insulin of pregnant women with pregnancy diabetes
Feel agile, because your muscles move you with ease
WHAT IS IT?
Stretching consists on elongating your muscles to help increase your flexibility and physical condition. Moreover, it helps reduce injuries and muscle cramps.
Stretching and pelvis flexibility are very beneficial for the pregnant woman.
The baby, at the time of birth, will move your pelvis’s joints, so they should be ready for it. With these exercises you can improve the flexibility of the birth channel and you favour a faster and less painful labour.
Prepare the pelvis and open the birth channel for the baby
Avoid muscle fatique
Balance and stability
ENHANCE YOUR BODY CONTROL
WHAT IS IT?
The balance point changes position on the pregnant woman as the pregnancy evolves. This causes unbalancing and back pain. Working on balance helps you find your equilibrium and improve your body control.
These exercises give us stability, improving the joints’ ability to cushion our movements without injury or damage on our ligaments.
Improve body control
Enhance your joints’ stability
Help find the balance axis as it changes during pregnancy
Aerobic, cardio and resistance
INCREASE YOUR PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE
WHAT IS IT?
Easy choreographies and exercise programs with music, performed consecutively.
The aerobic exercise, besides being fun and helping burn fat, helps us increase our exercise tolerance, which is essential for giving birth and to overall feel in shape and to be able to keep up with your kids’ energy.
When you do aerobic exercise, your heart rate and your need of oxygen increase, which helps increase your pulmonary capacity and you enhance your cardiovascular system.
Improve your resistance to physical activity (for giving birth and keeping up with you kids)
