Body by Trimester is a pregnancy fitness DVD series designed and demonstrated by a pregnant personal trainer. This series includes nine fun, effective, and safe trimester-specific workouts packed into a 3-DVD set. Each trimester of pregnancy is unique for the mind and the body, so each workout is tailored to help you gain strength, energy, and a better sense of well-being-a great gift to give your baby! Each trimester DVD includes two 30-minute interval training workouts, as well as a 15-minute express workout, all utilizing dumbbells and a stability ball. These pregnancy workouts focus on the muscles that get the most wear and tear during pregnancy, and pay extra special attention to the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. The 3rd trimester even includes special exercises to help you prepare for labor. Each DVD has a separate section on abdominal toning and how to check for diastasis recti. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends, “that you do at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise on most, if not all days of the week” (ACOG, 2002). These pregnancy workouts will help you do just that, so get moving!
