Maintaining a healthy mind and body during pregnancy is vital for the well-being of both you and your baby. Although it may be difficult to imagine setting foot into the gym and continuing your pre-pregnancy workout regimen while undergoing the physical changes your body is experiencing, sustaining an exercise routine is more important than ever and has its benefits too!
When it comes to fitness, everyone has their own preference whether it be yoga, spin or just taking a jog in the park. Nowadays there are countless classes and exercise options, many of which can be safe and available for Moms-to-be! (Be sure to talk to your doctor to discuss any limitations beforehand of course!)
One of the greatest fitness studios NYC has to offer is Physique 57 (hands down, my all-time favorite workout) AND they cater their classes to pre/post pregnancy women. For those of you who have taken one of their barre classes, you’ve no doubt left feeling strong, toned, lean and more confident afterwards. Each studio is immaculate and the instructors are so encouraging, paying special attention to each individual’s physical capability and always provide modifications to each exercise when necessary. Not in the NY area or prefer working out at home? Physique 57 offers online workouts available on their website to download as well!
So, get up, get moving and get motivated! You’ll look good and feel great while prepping that body for the arrival of your bundle of joy. And for an added bonus, know that exercising now will kick-start your transformation back to your pre-baby body in no time!
