Online Pregnancy Exercises
I am constantly seeing new programs, eBooks, workouts, or DVDs online that promote some new online pregnancy exercise program. Some are good and some are down right dangerous. I cringe when I see some of the exercises they are recommending.
First, I want you to do your research into the person who is claiming to be a prenatal exercise instructor. What is their experience? Are they qualified? Do they have reviews form clients to support their program?
What you need is a guided week by week program. Trying to find the right workout for you form a library of hundreds of videos will only frustrate you.
I am a mama of two beautiful boys and fortunately I enjoyed an empowering and positive birth experience with both. I credit this and having a healthy pregnancy with properly preparing for pregnancy and also ensuring I did my weekly workouts.

“I Absolutely Love the Online PregActive Program.”
Not only has it supported me to exercise from home (which is so convenient & achievable), it has significantly impacted my mindset and mental health! As a psychologist, I know how effective exercise is for improving mood. Since starting the program I’ve noticed such a huge change in how I feel, my attitude to life & my productivity… from allocating just 20 minutes a day to myself! I couldn’t recommend the program more highly! Rebecca Black – Psychologist & HypnoBirthing Practitioner (Mum to two beautiful girls)
My Workouts Allow You to Workout from Home
What I love most is teaching my in-studio classes. Being right there to work closely with each women. But there were constant requests to create an online pregnancy exercise program that they could do at home.
Many of my amazing women wanted to have access to my workouts when they were at home.
So, I created my online program at PregActive.com that provides a week-by-week guided prenatal exercise plan. My online pregnancy exercise program will help to keep you fit throughout each trimester.
Joining in one class a week was all they could manage time-wise.
But they wanted to work out more.
They wanted to stay on track and be able to workout form home. I was also getting requests from women who lived far away and wanted to have access to PregActive.
I am so excited that I can now help women from all around the world gain access to my prenatal workout videos. If you are one of these women who cannot physically attend one of my classes then my online program is for you.
You will gain immediate access to the best and safest online Pregnancy Exercises that you can do in the privacy of your home. It is like having me right there with you!
The Best Pregnancy Exercises
1. Must be Medically recommended and endorsed.
This is why I love helping pregnant women be fit and strong. This is a review from one of our beautiful members Felicity who is a Women’s Health Physiotherapist:
I have found comfort in the PregActive Classes. As a physiotherapist, I am very particular about which health professionals I see. I have found comfort in the PregActive classes with Kerryn’s sound knowledge of pregnancy exercise. The design of the classes has a nice balance of yoga, Pilates and strengthening. The online program has the same exercises we do in class with a great selection of relaxation sessions through to toning exercises that I can do anytime, anywhere.
2. Deliver Proven Results for women like YOU!
Your workouts must be goal orientated that deliver proven results to strengthen your core and entire body. I love it when I receive the great news of a newborn ‘PregActive’ baby. The appreciation expressed from helping mum stay strong, fit and healthy is what I love hearing most. You can read all the reviews right here >
3. Can be Included in Your at-home Workouts.
I know you will enjoy my workouts that you can do in the privacy of your own home. No more fighting for equipment or space at a gym. No driving to and from gym. The right pregnancy gym workout should include exercises you can also do at home.
4. Keep You Fit & Strong each Trimester.
Your exercise program should be modified each trimester to accommodate your growing belly. I have created a dedicated program appropriate for each week of your pregnancy. My workouts are progressive, but remain functional to help you perform your daily tasks when pregnant.
5. Must be Safe & effective workouts for You & Baby!
You must have trust in your instructor. Pregnancy is not the time take take risks or follow workouts from an unqualified instructor. There are some exercises, sports and activities you must avoid when pregnant. And you also need to know what intensity you should workout to, your heart rate, training time and so much more.
