Significant alteration to muscle composition, ligamentous laxity, joint stability, blood volume, visceral tone and a host of other important body processes means safe and effective coaching of a post-partum client requires skill and a sound knowledge base.  This course aims to provide a basic understanding of key areas relevant to the general personal trainer/fitness professional .
