Did you know?
- A healthy weight can increase your chance of pregnancy, and having a healthy baby.
- Being overweight affects the quality of eggs and sperm, and can reduce the chance of pregnancy – especially if you’re very overweight.
- Being underweight can also reduce fertility.
- For both men and women, healthy eating, regular exercise and losing even a few kilos can improve the chance of pregnancy.
Gym Plus Fertility Partnership
Gym Plus is now the preferred fitness club for clients who understand that fertility and a healthy lifestyle go hand in hand.
Our shared philosophy of a balanced, holistic and sustainable approach to health and fitness is the perfect blend to nurture the optimal balance for mental and physical wellbeing.
As many couples are starting families at a later stage and others struggling with a healthy BMI, natural conception can be a challenge. With one in five families in Ireland experiencing fertility issues, a holistic approach with a focus on nutrition and exercise is a vital first step for couples engaged in the fertility process.
Optimal nutrition with a focus on a balanced and antioxidant-rich diet, along with exercise to achieve a healthy BMI, has proven to be a very positive factor for couples trying to start a family.
Gym Plus Trainers
The Gym Plus team have been expertly trained on the fertility process. They understand what exercises should be avoided during critical times and which exercises will benefit the client most.
Our trainers will meet with each couple and work sensitively with them to create a unique personalised programme to enhance their health. Each dedicated trainer will be aware of the client’s stage of treatment and will recommend appropriate exercises to ensure no additional stress on the body whilst training. Whether the client needs to lose body fat, gain muscle mass or reduce stress levels during the process, the Gym Plus trainers will work closely with both individuals in order to ensure optimal results.
The Gym Plus trainer will also provide follow-ups every four weeks to ensure the client is staying on track and the programme is a positive experience.
