LEISA HART'S FIT MAMA PRENATAL WORKOUT
Publisher/Manufacturer: Goldhill Home Media
Throughout the nine months of pregnancy, your body is working overtime to grow and nourish your baby-to-be. Exercising regularly is one of the best gifts you can reward yourself with during this time. Moving your body increases the amount of oxygen and nutrient-rich blood that feeds your organs and brain. As a result, you improve your digestion, your mood, and energy level. Exercise can also ease nagging backaches and help keep pregnancy weight gain to a healthy amount. The key to exercising regularly is finding a workout that you love doing.
If you're looking for an upbeat, easy-to-follow workout that will hold your interest, this video fits the bill. Leisa Hart, an ACE (American Council on Exercise) certified instructor who leads this Fit Mama Prenatal Workout specializes in prenatal exercise and happened to be quite pregnant herself at the time this video was made. The video has a cardio segment designed to get your heart pumping, but it isn't so intense that you need worry about raising your heart-rate too high (the video meets all the guidelines recommended for exercise by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.) What makes this a well-rounded video is that Hart also includes toning, stretching, and breathing exercises as well all matched with appropriate music, from upbeat to soothing--that make you want to come back again and again.
