Erica Ziel has been a Prenatal Personal Trainer for more than 14 years and trained over 400 moms safely and effectively before and after their pregnancy. When it comes to your pregnant female clients, safety and results are the two biggest factors when training them. Erica Ziel’s  Certification Course will prepare you to become a Prenatal and Postnatal Exercise Specialist with the only certification recognized by the AFAA, PMA, ACE, and the NASM

Erica truly is the best of the best Prenatal Personal Trainer, Pilates and fitness instructor. She is an inspirational woman in so many ways. Often times I see personal trainers favor the prenatal anatomy element over the exercise/physical element, or focus too much on the physical “workout” without proper anatomy and posture awareness…..She has it all going on. She is a living example of a Pilates Pro, working mom, and beautiful woman. I feel lucky to have been able to study with Erica and look forward to learning more.

This course is a must for any instructor interested in becoming a prenatal personal trainer and taking their female clients to the next level. Money well spent!
