Fitness during pregnancy

In this course you can either get fit or stay fit together with other expectant mothers. We focus on endurance, strength and balance exercises combined with stretching and relaxation to make you more aware of your pelvic floor. Participation is open to expectant mothers from the 13th week of pregnancy.

The course takes place in the University Center for Prevention and Sports Medicine (UZePS) at Forchstrasse 319. For more information, please contact the Physiotherapy department under the telephone number +41 44 386 52 52.

Regression after birth

Just as you prepare for the birth of your baby, it is important to adjust to the new daily routine afterwards. This includes back formation training. In our back formation course, you will learn how to improve your posture and activate your pelvic floor. You will learn how to use your regained stability in everyday life and in your sports activities.

We also offer individual pelvic floor and rectus diastasis consultations in the areas of regression, return to sports and pelvic floor or abdominal wall dysfunctions.

Gait stability

If you feel unsafe while walking and there is a risk of falling, we’ll teach you in the group how to tackle difficult situations. This includes walking on an uneven surface or while carrying items. Functional strength and coordination exercises are also part of the program. Together with others, you’ll regain confidence in your body and achieve your personal goals step by step.

The course takes place in the main building at Forchstrasse 340. For more information, please contact the Physiotherapy department under the telephone number +41 44 386 15 88.

Aqua gymnastics

Accompanied by music, we execute slow movements in chest-deep or stomach-deep water to strengthen all the body’s muscles. Continual walking movements are easier to perform in water and will get you back in shape. The program also includes various strengthening and mobility exercises for the joints. At the end of the session we stretch and relax your muscles in the warm water.
