Autumn Calabrese helped me FINALLY get a grip on my eating habits. When her program, 21 Day Fix came out (read my review here), my whole healthy living world was changed because for the first time I learned how to truly eat in the right balance and moderation. Since then, I've been the biggest fan of Autumn. I've gotten the chance to workout live with her, to meet her, to thank her, and even to take pictures with her and I can say now even more than before that she is an incredible mom and human, not just an incredible trainer!
When she announced that she was working on a maternity and post-natal workout series exclusively for Beachbody On Demand I was so pumped! FINALLY something build FOR mamas with their exact needs in mind to help them stay strong and have a healthy pregnancy and easier recovery! Up until now women with buns in the ovens had to deal with awkwardly modifying regular workouts but not anymore because these ones were made specifically with knocked up ladies in mind and are structured to help minimize normal pregnancy aches and pains, boost sense of wellbeing, and help you have a foundation started already for your recovery after childbirth! I'm so stoked on this.
Active Maternity is available right now for streaming:
FIRST TRIMESTER FITNESS: Get Stable - strength training for core, legs, back, and shoulders
SECOND TRIMESTER FITNESS: Get Strong - more strength training for core, legs, back, and shoulders to keep you moving and your muscles strong
THIRD TRIMESTER FITNESS: Get Ready - hold each move for 10 seconds to prepare you mentally and physically for pushing during labor
POST-NATAL FITNESS: Get It Back - short half hour workout full of squats, lunges, and planks to help you bounce back while baby naps
You can access these workouts from your computer, tablet, or phone as long as you have wi-fi which is incredible because you aren't limited to a gym or to the room that happens to have your DVD player in it. You can also take your workout outside which feels amazing!
So how do you get these? All you need is to sign up for Beachbody On Demand! The cool thing about that is not only will you have access to these workouts but you'll also have access to an entire library of content (over $3000 worth!)
What else is on there? Let's see if we can say it all in one breath. Ready? *innnhaaalllleeeee* P90X, P90X2, P90X3, INSANITY: The Asylum (Vol. 1, Vol. 2), Tony One-on-One (Vol. 1), (Vol. 2, Vol. 3), TurboFire, ChaLEAN Extreme, Brazil Butt Lift, 10-Minute Trainer, Hip Hop Abs, Tai Cheng, Rev Abs, Rockin Body, Shaun T Dance Party, Turbo Jam, Yoga Booty Ballet, and Insider sneak peek videos of PiYo, 21 Day Fix, Body Beast, FOCUS T25. PLUS exclusive content just for BOD like this Active Maternity series and something called the Challenge Du Jour where a new workout is posted each day as the "workout of the day" for you to try. *gasps for breath*
So while you're doing Active Maternity your man can try P90X and work on his six pack. And then everyone wins really ;)
You can get access to On Demand for a month FOR FREE when you purchase a Challenge Pack! When you do this you also get a free seat reserved in an upcoming challenge group of mine! Which means I'll be giving you daily accountability and plugging you in with a community of people just like you working on their health goals! I would recommend getting Piyo because you can do a lot of it pregnant and it's THE BEST for a first program to do after you're cleared for working out from your doctor after deliver because it focuses on body weight resistance and core strength!
You can also get a FREE 30 DAY TRIAL by using this coupon link but this doesn't come with all the goodies of a challenge pack. After your trial is up it's just $2.99 a week to keep going. If you ever purchase a hard copy of a program from Beachbody it will automatically show up in your On Demand as well as a digital copy! How cool is that?
