    Default When to tell trainers / coaches?

    I am only very very early days yet (got my bfp last night / this morning).
    But I was wondering when I should be telling my personal trainer and my running coach that I am pregnant?
    I don't really want to tell either yet at this point.

    Firstly congrats on your bfp! I know it's not what you want to do but I would tell them straight away to make sure that exercises were appropriate for you. I'm sure you can rely on their discretion but I would hate for you to get injured or do exercises that were contraindicated. You also need to be mindful of not overheating and staying hydrated and PT's tend to really push you. Just my 5c

    Straight away. I trained through pregnancies and they have to know.

    Straight away. My trainer was the second person I told after DP as I had a session the day after I found out.

    Agree with the other ladies, straight away. My PT recommended a heart monitor during training sessions to make sure my heart rate wasn't going too high.

    Definitely straight away. Although despite me telling her straight away, she failed to adjust my weights and routine so I broke up with her. Now looking for a new PT who specializes in pregnancy care. After my last session I had loads of shooting pains in my pelvis where the join happens at the pubic bone thanks to lots of inappropriate exercises. Wasn't impressed.

    ASAP they will work with your body temp and heart rate to ensure you are training safely if they are aware.
