with Exercise and Nutrition
Do you want to work with women through pregnancy and beyond?
Helping them to keep their body moving whilst changes take place?
Help them reconnect with their body post-birth and get back to exercise?
If you answered yes to these questions then our Level 3 Award in Supporting Pre and Postnatal Clients with Exercise and Nutrition training is for you.
The EnergyWise Academy Level 3 Award in Supporting Pre and Postnatal Clients with Exercise and Nutrition training course has been mapped 100% to the National Occupational Standards – NOS. This is currently the highest and only endorsed standard of Pre and Post Natal Exercise qualification in the UK.
Our Level 3 Award in Supporting Pre and Postnatal Clients with Exercise and Nutrition and WELL MAMA instructor training are two separate courses that link together wonderfully. They can be done separately or together, however you cannot attend the WELL MAMA training day without having completed the Level 3 Award in Supporting Pre and Postnatal Clients with Exercise and Nutrition or equivalent. Please read below for further information on each aspect of this.
Our Level 3 Award in Supporting Pre and Postnatal Clients with Exercise and Nutrition is only open to those who already hold a recognised fitness qualification at Level 2 or above.
Your ability to appraise your client, advise them how to achieve excellent alignment and then maintain it while they progress through the moves is what makes an inspirational teacher.
At The EnergyWise Academy we are quietly confident that our reputation is growing as a centre of excellence for training inspirational instructors.
Who is this for?
This qualification is for anyone with a passion for keeping pregnant clients and new mums moving. You will learn how to adapt your knowledge and skills of fitness and exercise to suit the different stages of pregnancy and the post-natal period.
A basic understanding of pregnancy is recommended however you do not need to have experienced pregnancy to make an excellent pre and post natal exercise instructor.
This course is done solely online and at a time and pace to suit you. As you are already qualified to teach at either Level 2 or 3, there is no practical examination. Written work products are assessed, including a case study and worksheet within your Learner Achievement Portfolio.
This qualification leads to our WELL MAMA instructor training.
WELL MAMA takes a deeper dive into pregnancy and post-natal class formats, pelvic floor changes and birth preparation.

From Our students
We pride ourselves on supporting our students right through their learning journey, giving them all the tools needed for success.
It was an emotional journey, I learned so much and my back improved drastically. After that first course I was teaching 2 Pilates classes, that was over 3 years ago.
I now teach 14 classes a week and can safely say I have a successful business of my own.
I have done the Level 3 mat Pilates qualification at The EnergyWise Academy and it was really, really enjoyable, not like a normal course! A superb location, friendly small group, well taught, relaxed but non-intimidating and self-gratifying experience.
The team are welcoming, encouraging, and approachable and have incredible teaching technique!
The friendly, welcoming and supportive approach made the whole course much more enjoyable, interesting and fun.
Fiona’s belief and attitude was a great reminder of the importance of delivering safe classes to the public of all fitness levels, shapes & sizes.
During the course I started my own practice classes and within weeks I began to receive very positive feedback from the class participants on how they now noticed their core was engaging and improvements in their posture.
A year down the line I am now a fully qualified Level 3 Mat Pilates Instructor and Pre and Post Natal as well. So many doors have opened for me. I have four classes a week and the participants are loving it. All of the benefits from the classes now carry on to their daily life.
