Are you TTC, Pregnant, or recently Postpartum? Check out my new training program Plus 1

Hi friends! In this video I’m giving overviews of the changes I’ve made in my strength training while pregnant. In it, I’ll cover the benefits of exercise, helpful mindset shifts, exercise contraindications, and whether or not you should try something new while pregnant. I hope this video raises awareness for strength training during pregnancy. It’s allowed and recommended!
