Pregnancy

Congratulations -- you’re pregnant, or you've had a baby (or four babies)! The age-old question of how to properly exercise during pregnancy is one that new moms-to-be, as well as more seasoned moms, often ask their doctors, friends and fitness professionals. And, rightfully so!

As we want you to feel confident in the safety of your unborn baby while exercising, we’ve designed workouts specifically for pregnancy. If pregnancy hasn’t taught your already, overall, your body is incredibly smart! As it grows a tiny human being, it adjusts your blood pressure, expands your rib cage, and increases your blood volume, among many other amazing things…all without you telling it to do so. So, listen to your body! It will tell you what’s too much and when you should take it easy.
