Prenatal yoga, Pilates and walking are great but…
what if you’re a barbell squat, kettlebell, AMRAP kinda girl?
Then this was made for you.
FIGR:Pregnancy is a monthly app subscription that provides everything you need to achieve your fittest pregnancy.
“I cannot say enough about the FIGR Pregnancy & Postpartum programs. I had a solid foundation from my in-person classes with Katelyn before I got pregnant, and I was able to safely continue my routine until delivery.
The FIGR:Pregnancy program not only primed my body for a long labor, but helped with my sciatic pain in the 2nd trimester, improved my energy and nausea in the 1st, and helped ease general anxiety and regulate my hormones.”
I can honestly say I couldn’t have done it without FIGR!”
Feel confident lifting weights during your pregnancy.
- interval & strength workouts were programmed specifically for pregnancy
- movement videos will show you how to perform all moves properly
- modifications, regressions and movement selections are done for you so there’s no fear or guesswork
app messages each week help guide you along your journey
- 1 on 1 messaging with me (not a bot, or a rando) is available for any personal questions or concerns
How can I know this is safe for me?
My goal for this program from the beginning was to help ease fear and instill confidence in every pregnant woman who picks up the weights.
That’s why I physically did every single workout during my own pregnancy, at the exact time you’ll be doing them yourselves, so you could have a plan that makes you feel safe, properly guides you and that will keep you fit, safe & confident all the way to the end.
Every woman deserves to feel confident in the gym during her pregnancy.
It is my mission to make sure every woman feels confident picking up the weights at every stage of their pregnancy so they can be the best version of themselves as they go through such an incredible phase of their lives.
Keep lifting the weights.
We use dumbbells, kettlebells & barbells while keeping it appropriate & safe for pregnancy.
Limited equipment or can’t get to the gym?
You’ll have dumbbell options for every move that includes other equipment.
You can’t afford NOT to lift during pregnancy! These workouts will help you:
stay healthy & fit in a safe & effective way while doing the workouts you love
feel like yourself as your body constantly changes
create a healthy environment for your baby to grow
promote healthy weight gain and maintain muscle mass
ease pregnancy-related aches and pains
keep energy levels high & stress levels low
prepare your body for labor
“At the beginning of my pregnancy I was so worried about how my workouts would be affected – I had no idea what was safe for me/my baby and didn’t know where to start to figure out what was best for my baby and to keep me on track with my own personal goals.
Conveniently, FIGR was just launching the pregnancy program and I knew it would be perfect for me. I had been doing the FIGR:Strength program pre-pregnancy and loved it so natrually I loved the pregnancy program as well.
It was perfect to have the workouts already prepared for me so I had no excuses to skip a workout and tailoring the workouts each day depending on what my needed was super easy to do.
Fast forward and I am now currently loving the postpartum program!”

Most pregnancy programs are written after the fact. Not this time.
FIGR:Pregnancy was strategically crafted day by day throughout my own pregnancy to make sure every workout is effective, purposeful & safe for your pregnant body.
Let’s do this together.
Pregnancy is a wild ride, and you deserve to have people surrounding you who care & understand what you’re going through.
Going hard and going heavy were my two favorite things to do in the gym.
Then I got pregnant.
I remember being so nervous those first few weeks not knowing what I could do, what I should do, if I was harming my baby, and all the other anxiety-ridden thoughts that go through a first-time-mom’s brain.
The internet’s conflicting information on pregnancy workout guidelines didn’t help, and it seemed that every nurse had a different opinion as well. On top of that, all the pregnancy workout programs I saw online just looked too… easy.
I was annoyed. And I knew I couldn’t be the only one feeling the same way.
So, I decided to do something about it.
I got certified in pre & postnatal coaching, and documented every single workout I did throughout my entire pregnancy (and 12 weeks postpartum) to create what you see today as FIGR:Pregnancy!
After having an uncomplicated 5 hour total labor & delivery, no tearing, and a perfectly healthy baby, all after lifting weights into the last days of my pregnancy, I knew I could help others increase their chance of having a smooth pregnancy, labor and delivery experience themselves.
I also hope to help new future moms feel confident in the gym and help spread the fact that working out during pregnancy is not only not harmful, but that it is one of the most important components to a healthy pregnancy.
This pregnancy fitness program will give you the guidance, confidence and peace of mind that you’re staying safe in the gym AND staying your fittest, all the way ’til the very end.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you do not have access to some or all of these, I provide a dumbbell option for every move that requires equipment other than a dumbbell directly in the workout instructions for that day.
This program is best for women who have worked out consistently for at least 6 months before pregnancy, and who have experience with weighted movements like deadlifts, squats and kettlebell swings. It is not recommended for beginners or anyone who does not feel comfortable with basic movements.
Workout structures include: supersets, circuits, intervals, EMOM’s, AMRAP’s, chippers, ladders and more.
Workout duration changes as you progress through the program, but in general will be 45-60 minutes each.
These workouts include movements that:
- help build lower body endurance for labor
- stretch the perineum to help reduce/prevent tearing
- encourage optimal position of the baby for delivery (head down)
- get the baby to engage with the cervix to help get things moving before labor even starts
You’ll get 2 labor prep pieces per week from weeks 28-34, and 4 labor prep pieces per week for weeks 34-40.

Hello! I’m Katelyn Darkangelo, CPPC (certified pre and postnatal coach), creator of FIGR:Pregnancy and founder of FIGR. I live in Brighton, MI, married my high school sweetheart, Anthony, and became a mom Thanksgiving Day on 11/25/21 when our sweet Amelia was born!
Fitness has always been my biggest obsession. I majored in Movement/Exercise Science from the University of Michigan in 2017, then earned my Master of Management from Duke University so I could turn my passion for fitness into a real business. I created FIGR, in 2018 and it’s been our full time career since 2019. Both my husband and I train clients in person and through the FIGR app to help bring elite fitness to everyone.
When I became pregnant, I got certified as a pre & postnatal fitness coach so I could apply everything I was learning to my own pregnant and postpartum body.
After having an smooth labor & delivery, no tearing, and a perfectly healthy baby, all after lifting weights into the last days of my pregnancy, I knew I could help others and show that working out during pregnancy is one of the most important components to a healthy pregnancy.
In addition to my online programs, I also have in-person experience training pregnant and postpartum women, and I cannot wait to continue to help more in the years to come!
