FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Pregnant Workout
I’m pregnant, when can I start with the workouts?
You can start the moment you find out your pregnant. Most participants start the workouts between 12 and 16 weeks and you can continue to train with us until your due date.
I have problems with my hips/pelvis, can I still participate in the workouts?
You can certainly participate. Be sure to let us know so the trainer can take it into account during the workout. Continuing with movement and building muscle strength is important, particularly when there are complaints. Our program has been developed in close cooperation with pelvic specialists.
I exercise frequently and I’m in pretty good shape, when should I switch to the Pregnancy Workout?
You can best make the switch to the Pregnancy Workout around 16 weeks. Once you have entered the second trimester, you should no longer be actively training your rectus abdominus. Would you like to train more than 1x a week? No problem, we also have a Pregnancy Unlimited membership that allows you to train as many times a week as you would like.
I would like to participate in the Pregnancy Workout but I can only do so for a couple weeks.
That's possible! It is never too late to work on your fitness, and it will work in your benefit during labor. Your membership will continue until your due date. If you wish to end your membership prior to your due date you can contact us at singapore@mominbalance.com or via the contact form on the website.

Mpower is not specifically for young mothers, but for every woman. The focus is on strengthening yourself through sport, both mentally and physically.
