“Should I exercise while pregnant?” The answer is a resounding yes! Strength-based prenatal exercises have been proven to lead to a variety of positive health outcomes. Safe to perform in most cases, they can actively lead to a smoother and healthier pregnancy, better labor experience, faster recovery, and possibly even a healthier newborn.
 
Written by Gina Conley, a certified personal trainer specializing in prenatal fitness and registered birth doula,Training for Two is the active woman’s guide to exercising while expecting. Unlike other pregnancy fitness books that take a more general approach, Training for Two specifically focuses on strengthening the body and preparing it to give birth.

Research-backed and comprehensive, this definitive prenatal fitness guide features over 200 photos to help you absorb the material and perform the movements with confidence. Organized by trimester, the book includes:
 
  • Common strength-focused exercises like squats, deadlifts, lunges, and rows, modified as necessary to be safely and comfortably performed while pregnant
  • Easy exercises and workouts to open the body and prepare for labor
  • An overview of common pregnancy complications and how they affect your exercise regimen
  • A postpartum chapter focusing on recovery and mobility in the first six weeks after birth
  • What to expect and what questions to ask during your prenatal appointments
  • And more!
 
Based on the popular prenatal fitness programs and childbirth classes offered by MamasteFit, Training for Two aims to educate, support, and empower expectant mamas everywhere to stay strong and comfortable during their pregnancy and delivery.
