Complete Pregnancy Fitness Program {Lindsay Brin’s 4 DVD Workout Set} Review

Something that I have come to enjoy over the years is having a fitness routine. I like to change it up and try new things constantly. But no matter what I am doing I AM doing something to stay active and healthy.  I have to in order to keep up with my 4 year-old and my 2 year-old boys. Now that I have a third baby on the way, staying healthy and active is even more important.

With all of my pregnancies I have suffered from morning sickness throughout my first trimester, making any form of exercise all but impossible until the morning sickness subsides. Then once the second trimester hits I am feeling up to exercising, but am having to take things slowly as to regain my strength. I was given the Moms Into Fitness Complete Pregnancy Fitness Program for review and once my second trimester hit I was more than ready to get back into the thick of it.

I started off slowly working on the program a couple days a week until my body adjusted to what I was asking of it. I found these DVD’s to be fun, upbeat, and educational. With my previous pregnancies my only true form of exercise came from keeping up with my classroom and the pre-K kids I taught {pregnancy #1} and keeping up with my toddler {pregnancy #2}. I have found that by exercising throughout this pregnancy I have more energy and am better able to keep up with my children.

The Moms Into Fitness Complete Pregnancy Fitness Program by Lindsay Brin is Mom Mart Approved!

What we love about this 4 DVD Workout Set:
Lindsay takes you through each trimester offering safe exercises with three different moderation levels for each workout. This was important to me as I always worry about doing something I am not supposed to when I am pregnant.
Each trimester DVD has a cardio/toning component {which I love} and a prenatal yoga component {which I am coming to like more and more as this pregnancy progresses – I am not a big Yoga person}. I prefer the toning cardio workouts first thing in the morning to kick start my day.
The prenatal 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester DVD’s keep you moving at a good pace so you do not feel like you have to pause the DVD in order to keep up with the routine, while the Post Natal Boot Camp DVD moves at a faster pace forcing you to push through.
The Post Natal Boot Camp DVD has a ton of variations – keeping the workout constantly fresh! You can create your own combo or follow the program the DVD has set up {I bought this DVD after I had my first child and followed the program. It was the variation and intensity I needed in order to get back in my pre-pregnancy clothing}.
Lindsay herself is a very upbeat energetic character who I enjoy working out with and listening to.
The cardio workouts require weights {2 sets –one light and one heavier} but there are modifications for each workout and if it is too much you are encouraged to go to the lighter weights.
Working Out While Pregnant: Complete Pregnancy Fitness Program

While I skipped the first trimester workouts all together thanks to morning sickness, I have thoroughly enjoyed the second trimester and third trimester DVDs. I have completed the Post Natal Boot Camp DVD after a previous pregnancy and have and will continue to recommend it to any mom who is trying to get her body back after having a baby. It is what helped me get my body back after I had my first child and I used it again after I had my second child. I will be using this DVD after baby number three arrives as well.
