What happens when a personal trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine marries a baby planner from the National Baby Planners Association? You guessed it, The Pregnancy FitKit™ is born!
When having children of our own, we noticed that although there was an article on the value and importance of exercise during the pre and postnatal seasons of pregnancy in every pregnancy publication, there were no fun and effective products available to meet the unique fitness needs of expecting mothers. It is our absolute joy and distinct privilege to provide you a suite of fun and effective products that will improve both mom and baby's health and overall well-being.
For the countless physical, mental and emotional benefits, we are confident that The Pregnancy FitKit™ will give you that extra measure of strength, confidence, encouragement and endurance that it takes to be the best mom you can be!

BE IN THE KNOW
KNOW exercise is GOOD!
Dr. James Clapp ran a study of 500 pregnant women: those who exercised delivered a healthier baby with a stronger fetal heart rate.
DO exercise. Your time spent in labor is shortened by about a third, with 65% of women delivering in four hours or less!
DON'T exercise in extreme altitudes or in hot and humid environments as your body temperature directly affects your baby.
DO the talk test; if you can't carry on a conversation without feeling short of breath your exercise is too intense.
DO swim! This keeps your body toned without adding weight and stress to the joints, and it is unlikely to cause overheating.
DO continue to jog/run at a moderate pace if that is your exercise of choice, but remember that walking is easier on your knees and joints, especially during pregnancy and later trimesters.
