Pregnancy and Fitness

Exercising while pregnant (with your doctor’s permission first) is one of the best things you can do. When you exercise your blood flows better and this will help prevent muscle aches, regular workouts will help keep your muscles. Remember the better shape your in for labor the more strength and stamina you will have during delivery.  Staying active is the key to a fit pregnancy, so regardless of your finances you can take a walk at your local park or if outside weather is a challenge try mall walking (most malls open 1-2 hours in advance for mall walkers before stores open this is a great free service).

Maybe you prefer to work out in the quiet and privacy of your own home – this is especially great in the winter when its too cold to enjoy being outdoors or if your a already a mommy and have a small child at home this can be much more convenient. Here are some of my suggestions:
