This review is from: Complete Pregnancy Fitness [DVD] (DVD)
I can't praise this product enough. All I expect from a product is what is promised ... I wanted to stay FIT (not that I was a gym-bunny before, just of average fitness) and HEALTHY throughout pregnancy, and minimise weight-gain.
I searched high and low from early days of my first pregnancy for a prenatal fitness DVD that would make me feel no loss at cancelling my gym membership. I tried all of them, but none hit the mark. This one has short sections, ensuring every part of your ever-changing body gets the focus it needs, but without feeling too worked to the point where you lose motivation. Erin is professional (saving you from the annoying "banter" of the celebrity efforts in other DVDs), the setting is neutral - set in her front room - the music is there but barely registers beyond keeping you in time, and best of all (and I promise you this) it actually WORKS. You will feel the results the next day, but as Erin considers the relaxin hormone's effect on the pregnant body, you won't be hobbling around whimpering.
I recommend combining this DVD with Tara Lee's pregnancy yoga one. I'm coming to the end of my second pregnancy, have virtually eaten everything in sight but maintained a balanced weight, felt healthy and not lost the tone to my body.
WELL WORTH IT.
