Welcome to my Prenatal Gym Program! This is specifically designed for the mama who wants to maintain, and even build, muscle in a gym setting while pregnant with guidance on how to do so safely & effectively. If you were an athlete pre-pregnancy, this program would be useful to you as maintenance & if you do not consider yourself an athlete, this program is a great foundation for getting comfortable in the gym, learning proper form, and pushing yourself within safe parameters.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this safe for all trimesters?
This program is ideal for the first and second trimester but can also be performed in the third trimester depending on the individuals' athletic ability and pain and/or exhaustion levels at the end of their pregnancy. It is entirely prenatal safe but you will have to determine whether your ability level is comfortable with this program through the third trimester.
Is it safe to lift weights while pregnant?
The ways people are unsafe in pregnancy is negating exercise entirely, lifting too heavy, or targeting areas of their six pack in pregnancy that should be avoided in exercise. As long as you follow the form I demonstrate in my videos and lift at a weight that is challenging but not compromising your form, then this program is a perfect way to lift while pregnant as it is designed for that.
Can I repeat the program?
Yes! I highly recommend repeating this program throughout all trimesters of your pregnancy to maintain your fitness and see in what areas you gain strength throughout your pregnancy. This will set you up for success in postpartum so that you can avoid injury and more safely and efficiently rehab and get back to fitness once baby (or babies) is/are earthside!
