Pregnancy Safe Workouts: Give the gift of a healthy, safe workout system with the Pregnant Athlete Training Program, a weekly workout program specifically designed for pregnant women. Exercise is generally recommended and encouraged during pregnancy. Whether you were or are a competitive athlete, a weekend warrior, or just enjoy movement, it’s important to learn how to adjust exercise during pregnancy. These modifications are imperative, yet not always intuitive. Luckily, there are pregnancy specific training programs and coaches to help along the way. I’ve been using the Brianna Battle Pregnant Athlete Training Program throughout my pregnancy and plan on using the postpartum program to recover once baby is born. *Please check with your doctor before starting any workout program.
