New fitness classes for pregnant Gold Coast women

By Lauren - Gold Coast Mum

Gold Coast obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Drew Moffrey has partnered with Gold Coast personal trainer Asha Burnley to offer antenatal group fitness classes.

Held at Miss Burnley's Broadbeach studio, the new sessions, approved by Dr Moffrey, will include pre and post-natal training programs, including group classes and personal training.

I had the pleasure of meeting both Asha and Dr Drew during my time as a newspaper journalist – where I coordinated a campaign they were selected to participate in.

Dr Moffrey was also the wonderful obstetrician I saw for antenatal appointments during my pregnancy with my twincesses (though I gave birth at Gold Coast University Hospital).

We have since caught up so he could meet my twincesses, that he so professionally kept track of during my pregnancy (and helped me manage my gestational diabetes).

I also caught up with Dr Moffrey at one of the wonderful get-togethers he has held at a local park for current and previous clients.

It’s wonderful to see two intelligent and passionate Gold Coasters, who are leading the way in their industries, join forces to offer this great service for women.

I attended personal training until I was about five months’ pregnant with my twin girls. 
At the time I felt my male personal trainer was pushing me a little too hard and wasn’t up-to-speed on pregnancy-related issues and other concerns such as diastasis recti (abdominal separation).

I knew my limits and felt that safest option would be to cease training until my twins had arrived safely.
Unfortunately, these days I don’t get to train due to juggling four children under the age of five, as well as working from home. But I do love to exercise with my children and attend Zumba classes.

Miss Burnley, who runs Asha Burnley Health & Fitness, and has many satisfied ‘Asha’s Angels’ all over the Gold Coast, has developed a range of fitness programs to suit women's needs.
Her programs aim to provide women with an improved sense of health and confidence.
All training sessions are run from Miss Burnley’s Gold Coast base. For those not based on the Gold Coast, she also offers Online Workout Plans.
