Most of us moms are either trying to stay in shape during our pregnancies or trying to shed the last few pounds from post partum. Finding the right exercise program is more difficult after you become a mom since our schedules are hectic and 'me time' is very limited with a baby on our hip and toddlers running around the house. Moms into Fitness is the perfect solution for all moms!

My Moms Into Fitness Experience!
As most of you know, pre-baby #2 I was really into exercising and running. I was trying to get back in shape the best I could before baby #2. I loved working out hard and being sore after a workout was a good thing, it meant progress! When I first found out I was pregnant I continued to run, although I had cut back my mileage due to morning sickness and lack of energy. As the weeks passed I still had no energy and a 3 mile run would totally wipe me out instead of help me. My achilles tendon started acting up again as well thanks to pregnancy hormones. I finally decided to give up running through the rest of my pregnancy.
I received the Pregnancy Fitness Program just as I was going into my second trimester. I have only worked out to the Second Trimester dvd so far, but I am really enjoying it! I find that the dvd is challenging enough for me during this trimester and I still feel like I get a total body workout. I love how the exercises are geared towards strengthening the typical trouble areas that pregnant women experience. I also feel that Brin's dvds are great for preparing the whole body for birth as well with the core and leg work. After my workout I feel energized and relaxed. I'm looking forward to moving on to the Third Trimester dvd when it's time. As you can imagine I'm really looking forward to the Boot Camp 2 dvd! :-)

Overall Thoughts about Moms Into Fitness!
Of all of the fitness programs that are available to moms, I totally believe Lindsay Brin's is the best! Although I won't mention names, there are other fitness moms that I have followed online and looked into their workout video and diet programs. Most of them are pretty extreme on the dieting aspect. Brin on the other hand has always been totally open about what she looked like pre-baby and post-baby. She has photos all over her website and blog about her post-baby weight loss experiences. Plus she shares about her diet plan which is basically sensible eating. No extreme protein diets! Brin has created fitness programs and diet plans that are simple for any busy mom to follow and still get her post-baby body back (or even better than post-baby!). Please check out her website, Moms Into Fitness, because she offers more dvds and even workouts you can download onto your computer or ipod.
