Women and sport

Through sport, we accompany and counsel women in the different stages of life, especially adolescence and pregnancy.

Over the years, due to their physiology, all women's bodies experience changes linked in large part to hormone changes. At any age, practising sport may help to assimilate these changes, since exercise plays a vital role during all stages of women's lives.

Due to our status as a maternal and child hospital, from the private Clínic - Sant Joan de Déu Sport Medicine Unit, through sport, we accompany and counsel women in the different stages of their lives, especially pregnancy and adolescence.

Pregnancy and the postpartum period

Exercise is undoubtedly one of the recommendations most often made by healthcare professionals who seek to ensure that pregnant women have healthy pregnancies.

Adherence to a personalised physical exercise programme, adapted to each woman's requirements and needs, leads to a reduction in the risk of complications and diseases during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.

Our unit offers medical visits, consultations and counselling in order to assist in and advise on practising physical activity during this stage.

We offer:

  • Medical visit.
  • Initial personal training session.
  • Individual personal training session.
  • Bonus of 10 individual personal training sessions.

Adolescence and sport

Adolescence is a time of major change. A woman's body goes through a process of change and exercise may play a fundamental role in this stage. However, it is not always easy to adapt the practise of physical activity to these changes and, as a result, questions may arise such as what the most appropriate sport for this stage may be and what the implications of menstruation are.

Our team offers medical counselling to both young people and their parents so that doing exercise is a source of health benefits in not only this stage, but also the future.

We offer:

  • Initial medical visit.
  • Physical examination.
  • Assessment with stress test.
  • Report and recommendations.
