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.
