At FPC, pregnant women work up a sweat in an environment that keeps them safe while still building strength

Imagine pregnant women working out, and you are likely to conjure an image of a relaxing yoga class where women slowly move their bodies with delicate care. Not so at FPC, a New York City gym that provides a comfortable environment for expectant mothers to work up a sweat.

Co-founded by Carolina Gunnarsson and Joanie Johnson, FPC offers safe yet challenging workouts intended to increase a woman’s level of fitness for a stronger pregnancy and faster recovery post-delivery. The studio has four different class offerings, including FPC’s Signature course, a 45-minute workout featuring upbeat music focused on low-impact, high-intensity, full-body workouts. FPC Flow, meanwhile, is a more relaxing course for those days when mothers-to-be want to focus more on stretching while still being challenged.

“We are tired of workouts that treat pregnancy like an illness or put our bodies and babies in compromising positions,” the gym writes on its website. “Your existing workout shouldn’t just be modified for safety. We believe that mothers-to-be and new mothers should train differently.”

Most importantly the classes create a space where women can comfortably share stories and questions regarding their pregnancies with other women and trainers who are experts in prenatal workouts. The studio, located in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, offers a range of class packages, including single classes for $40 up to a $375 per month for an unlimited pass.
