Introducing Amanda Tress’ Pregnancy Exercises: Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout DVD.* If you are looking for a prenatal workout to do through all three trimesters of pregnancy, during your pre-pregnancy fitness plan, and for post-delivery recovery, look no further.
Staying fit throughout pregnancy is very important and will help to reduce the negative symptoms of pregnancy. Continuing a prenatal workout routine in all three trimesters will help prevent excess weight gain, keep a woman’s body strong for labor and delivery, and significantly speed up the recovery process (not to mention the health benefits to the baby).
This Pregnancy Exercises: Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout DVD* is perfect for women who are hoping to do a fabulous workout in the comfort and convenience of their own home. It is designed with two levels — advanced and modified:
- The advanced level is great for pre-pregnancy fitness or for women who are working to shed excess weight after delivery.
- The modification moves can be performed throughout all three trimesters of a non-risk pregnancy* and focus on strengthening muscle groups that are important for labor and delivery. Please see below for safety information and important notes.
The 35 minute Pregnancy Exercises: Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout DVD includes:
- Warm Up
- 3 Cardio Circuits
- Arm Workout
- Leg Workout
- Abdominal Workout
- Cool Down

* The Pregnancy Exercises Fit Pregnancy Total Body Workout DVD is intended for women who are pregnant and wish to maintain their fitness levels through their pregnancy. It is not intended as a beginners exercise and prenatal workouts should not be attempted without first having discussed with your physician or midwife. Not all exercises are suitable for everyone. As with any exercise program, if at any point during your workout you feel faint, dizzy, or have physical discomfort, you should stop immediately. You are responsible for exercising within your limits and seeking medical advice and attention as appropriate. Neither Amanda Tress nor Fit Pregnancy and Parenting (nor any individual or corporations associated with the production, marketing and distribution of this DVD) assumes any legal liability or responsibility for any direct, indirect, consequential, special, exemplary or other loss, injury or damages that may result. Nor is there any guaranty, warranty or formal representation about the personal benefits of this DVD. You participate in this workout at your own risk.
In the first trimester, a woman with a non-risk pregnancy can generally maintain the same level of fitness as her pre-pregnancy workout routine. Attention should be paid to heart rate and body temperature. A pregnant woman should stop exercising when fatigued and not exercise to exhaustion.
In the second trimester, a woman should pay extra attention to balance. Also, this is often the trimester to stop abdominal exercises in the supine and prone position. A pregnant woman should be aware of the potential for diastasis, or separation of the rectus abdominis muscle. Use one or two pillows to during exercises in the supine position if you still choose to do those, and pay attention to proper form.
The third trimester often presents issues with balance. Hydration and proper nutrition should be a main concern for a woman in the third trimester. Consider consuming water every 10 minutes during exercise.
Women with no exercise experience should not attempt lunges. Women who have maintained a fit pregnancy can do lunges and may choose to use a chair for support in the second and third trimesters. Stretching can be done with caution. (NCCPT Special Populations)
