Why the Miracle Ball Method for Moms?

The Miracle Ball Method works on both muscles and your skeletal alignment. Exercise works on your muscles. Pregnancy is a huge challenge for your muscles and the alignment of your skeleton. Think of the skeleton as your underlying infrastructure for your whole body. As the baby or babies grow the muscles, and eventually the bones accommodate the size of the baby in your belly. The tilting of the pelvis can put pressure on low back, cause sciatic pain, make it difficult to sleep, fatigue just to name a few of the discomforts women face during pregnancy. These physical challenges can make a person feel overwhelmed emotionally as well.

The Miracle Ball Method for Moms workshop this Saturday at The Tully Health Center Health and Fitness Institute will help you to adjust your whole body. This will take the pressure off the areas that are tight while toning you up and relaxing your mind and body. You will sleep better and learn things you can do throughout your pregnancy to keep that beautiful body strong but not stiff.

An 8 week program will follow Saturday's class beginning Saturday May 22nd.

As a fitness professional interested in helping people change negative behaviors and replace them with positive behaviors, one of the coolest tools is the Transtheoretical Model of change. It’s the leading model put together by researchers that healthcare professionals have been using for years to help people change from undesired behaviors to positive behaviors. The model is the leading model used to teach psychology of change to people getting personal trainer certifications through the American Council on Exercise and American College of Sports Medicine.The model recognizes five distinct categories of change: Precontemplation, Contemplation, Preparation, Action and Maintenance. Before explaining the importance of this model, I’ll give a quick overview of what each stage is and how it strongly relates to exercise, health, nutrition and why this can be important to you.
