Have heard of the erin obrien one. Any others that you do that you have good results from or are generally fab?

I dont want yoga but also dont really want something that leaves me out of breath and sweaty. Ideally 3/4 a day type thing...

I have got an excellent one - pilates in pregnancy. I haven't actually used it yet or even looked at it, but I have had excellent results so far from knowing it is in the cupboard.

lynne Robinson pilates in pregnancy was very good for all stages I credit it with keeping me back pain free and keeping strong pelvic floor despite my advancing years

also I hear the Davina pre&post natal is good

anyone done the davina macall one?

I did the Lynne Robinson Pilates in pregnancy one too - was v good.

Davina McCall - v. good but quite easy if you're already exercising regularly.

Don't touch the Gaby Logan one, have a real bugbear about it, it's billed as being the exercise routine she did during and after pregnancy and most of the exercises are totally unsuitable during pregnancy. Ridiculous and unsafe.

Gabriella Reece (US Volleyball player) is v. good, but you may only be able to get this as a US DVD.

Also try American website for ideas.

Personal advice: eat cake AND exercise - it's working for me....(32 weeks) PT specialising in pre and post natal fitness and make the same recommendation to all my clients! smile

i need one that i can do within 45 mins though as the only chance i will get to do it is when ds is asleep. The davina one is 1h53 and obv wouldnt miss out on warming down etc.. any ideas?

just slight hijack sorry

- hatcam what part of the world are you? pretty please

sfxmum I'm in sunny Berkshire

mad4mybaby - the whole Davina DVD is 1h53 but the actual pre-natal workout (there's 2 workouts on there) is about 45 mins or so. It is good, but if you're fit you'll find it too easy. Will put my thinking cap on for some other options!

ok thanks, I run but only about 10-15 miles per week and I am trying to get pregnant again but really do not want to put on 4 stone like last time, then I stopped going to the gym at 14 wks and it all went downhill from then

I keep looking at fitness in pregnancy threads to motivate myself and get proper info

hatcam Thu 07-Aug-08 21:07:41

good luck sfxmum - very happy to help with any info or any specific questions. Like I've said here before I'm a fitness geek and love my job so always happy to help. Makes me really cross that there's a lot of rubbish/misleading info out there about exercising while pregnant.

My favourite (before I developed SPD!) was "Pre-natal fitness fix". It was the only one that I tried that actually felt like I was exercising.
