Paralympian Cyclist

Sarah’s tips for training during pregnancy

Staying fit and healthy in pregnancy is important for so many reasons.  Your baby will benefit from you being fit and healthy as they are less likely to struggle with their own weight as they grow. It's important to be safe, not overheat or get dehydrated but don't be afraid to raise your heart rate if you feel comfortable doing so.

How our maternity fitness clothes worked for Sarah Storey

The combination of top and leggings provides maximum support for baby bump, back and boobs – but also allows a high level of flexibility, perfect for cycling during pregnancy.  The smooth seam construction of FittaMamma garments helps minimise chafing when cycling.
