Over the past decade I have been working with women looking to get pregnant and then through their pregnancy as they try to do what is best for the unborn baby. This is especially important since the newest research is showing that the health of the mom before conception and during pregnancy plays a substantial role in the predisposition that the baby will become a healthy weight adult.
Hundreds of women have gone full term or close to it through my MamaTone, Fit Fun Bootcamps, and my monthly Fit Moms For Life DVDs, and I can’t remember one mom telling me that she feels drastically better during this pregnancy than her previous (assuming it isn’t her first).
While I am not a doctor, and I must say “talk to your doctor before engaging in an exercise program” I can say through countless case studies that I am convinced working out and still working out pretty hard, is the best way to prepare yourself and your baby for the world ahead.
Check out Katelyn’s story, she ended up coming to MamaTone the day before she gave birth to a healthy 8 lb girl. She was still able to do unassisted pullups, pushups, and dips, and run at 9 mph the week of giving birth. Nothing is going to slow this mama down!
