This book should not be sold anymore, has exercises that involve using baby as resistance, very dated and not recommended by health care professionals. A waste of money..

Great Book for Fitness Professional 10 Dec. 2009
By FitnessByAmanda - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is great for anyone in the fitness industry. It is sort of scientific in its explanation, so if you are looking for something that explains everything in everyday language I do not reccommend this book. (I would recommend expecting fitness by birgitta gallo). The exercises are very vanilla so if you are an athlete who is looking to work out during pregnancy or expecting to train an ahtlete during pregnancy she will prob be bored with these exercises. Also, this book has info from ACOG from 1999 so I am sure there is a more updated book out there.

Misinformation, Outdated, Not Worth a Penny 6 July 2011
By Jay Me - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently finished a prenatal/postpartum exercise specialist training program, and bought a ton of books on the subject. This book was BY FAR the worst of the bunch. Not only does it fail to scratch the surface of why prenatal exercise is safe, it includes exercises that are actually considered dangerous in 90% of the other materials I have come across.

If you are a trainer looking to include prenatal exercise as part of your program, skip this book. A better choice would be Essential Exercises for the Childbearing Year, Exercising Through Your Pregnancy, and Expecting Fitness.

Good Info 4 April 2010
By E. Sanders - Published on
Format: Paperback
Just wondering if the inner thigh stretch (or butterfly stretch)is appropriate for new mothers or pregnant women b/c the small pubis bone in the pelvis is very lax during this time and may be torn.
Great for Pre/Post Natal Trainers 21 May 2011
By MN Gal - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I was working with a client who was pregnant and this book gave me all the right tools to work with her throughout her pregnancy and after the baby. She had a c-section and the book even had recommendations on what to do after that as well. If you are not a trainer but a fitness enthusiasts I would still recommend this book for you as well.

Pre-and Post-Natal Fitness 20 Jun. 2008
By Donald Jarvie - Published on
Format: Paperback
Fantastic resource- very user friendly and thorough. As a personal trainer with an expecting client, I found ACE's guidelines safe, helpful, and effective.
