Pregnant Woman Simulation - Hmmmmm!

by John Fachy
(Quincy, Massachusetts)

I just returned from having failed my first attempt at the ACE Certification Personal Trainer Exam. The main stumbling point that threw me for a loop related to one of the two client case scenarios.

The situation called for program design and recommendations relating to a 28 year old pregnant woman six weeks into her pregnancy. The case verbiage advised that this client had in fact been cleared for exercise by her primary care physician.

I recalled from my practice test cases used to study for the exam that under no circumstances should a trainer take on a female client in the initial phases of pregnancy? I kept searching for a "refer back to physician" option to no avail.

For what it's worth, just a legitimate concern regarding the test design of the study material and answers provided versus the real thing.

At 6 weeks, with a physician's approval along with an eager and capable individual, I would ask why not? Should either of those things change then re-evaluate to keep her (and the child) safe.

Prior training matters. If it's a woman who is really well trained, continuing training is essentially a non-issue. However, if it's a woman who is totally new to exercise, you'd want to start very conservatively. So many things can affect the developing fetus, safety has to be the main priority.
