Fitness during a healthy, normal pregnancy is an important piece of the puzzle – along with eating well balanced meals, drinking plenty of water and getting lots of sleep. I’ve spent the past 20 weeks doing at-home prenatal yoga, light Pilates and daily walking with my toddler in the stroller. And I plan to continue my routine – all while listening to my body.
My best advice when it comes to fitness during and after pregnancy is to create a realistic fitness routine for the home (provided your physician gives you the go-ahead). For me, it gets harder and harder to get away from the house and as the exhaustion sets in. I’m more likely to keep up a flexible routine at home than stick to time specific classes away from the home.
If you’re trying to conceive in 2013 or if you’ve maintained a light and healthy exercise routine during your pregnancy so far, you’re going to love the STOTT Pilates for Pregnancy Workout Kit from Zoostores.com! It’s the perfect way to rev-up or maintain your fitness goals from the comforts of your own home – and on your own time! If you’re really looking to customize your at-home exercise routine (especially for those days after baby when you really don’t have the time to get away from the house), check out the Merit Fitness 715T Plus Treadmill with AEROsoft Cushioning. You can walk in the wee hours of the morning when you can’t sleep, while waiting for the kids to wake up, during naps or on days that are too cold to take a stroll outside with your little one.
Maintain strong abdominal, back and pelvic floor muscles for a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery with the STOTT Pregnancy Pilates Workout Kit ($100 value). Minimize discomfort and increase strength with the pregnancy and post natal routine specifically designed to be gentle on your abdominals while reactivating and strengthening the deep pelvic floor muscles.
