As many people are starting families at a later stage, natural conception can sometimes be problematic. With one in five families in Ireland experiencing fertility issues, a holistic approach with a focus on nutrition and exercise is a vital first step for those engaged in the fertility process. Optimal nutrition with a focus on a balanced and antioxidant rich diet along with exercise to achieve or maintain a healthy BMI, has proven to be beneficial for those trying to start a family.  

At Sims IVF we have partnered with Gym Plus to help our patients maximise their chances of conception. Our partnership allows patients to meet with a Gym Plus trainer who will create a unique personalised programme for them. Each dedicated trainer will be aware of the client’s stage of treatment and will be able to recommend exercises to ensure  there is no additional stress placed on the body whilst training. Whether you need to lose body fat, gain muscle mass or reduce stress levels, your Gym Plus trainer will work closely with you in order to ensure optimal results. Your trainer will also provide follow-ups every four weeks to ensure you are staying on track and having a positive overall experience.

Anita Foote, Expert Nutritionist at Sims IVF saysSims IVF and Rotunda IVF are delighted to be working with Gym Plus. We strive to provide the best possible care for our patients through a tailored and holistic approach to starting a family.  Exercise, nutrition and decreasing stress are all ways to help on your journey. That is why we are proud to say we are in partnership with Gym Plus.  Exercise can be partnered with our nutrition plans and expertise to promote a healthy lifestyle.'' 

Fertility Exercise Programmes

The Gym Plus team has been trained on the fertility process in order to understand what exercises should be avoided during critical times and which exercises will benefit the client most. Common exercises which will be encouraged include swimming and Yoga/Pilates, with all classes included at no extra cost. It is hoped that the fertility client will achieve a balanced lifestyle as well as a positive mind-set in what can be a very emotional and stressful time.  

Following the announcement of the partnership, Sandra Dunne, Operations Director, Gym Plus said: "We're very proud to support Sims IVF patients on their journey to creating the healthy, happy family they so desperately want." 

Gym Plus has eight gyms located throughout Ireland with highly skilled fitness trainers on hand to ensure clients achieve the results they desire. The new partnership with IVF Fertility Clinics in Ireland will begin in April 2019. For more information about Gym Plus visit www.gymplus.ie.
