By atisheh VINE VOICE on January 6, 2012
Patricia Friberg's Belly Beautiful Workout - Prenatal Fitness for a Beautiful Pregnancy is an excellent addition to a prenatal workout collection. While most prenatal workouts are yoga-based and focus on stretching, Belly Beautiful Workout is Pilates-based and will make you feel some burn, but it is also gentle and precise enough to be done even by a seven-month pregnant woman!

I received a review copy of this program, and was excited to try it because of the props. Patricia uses a Swiss ball and an elastic band in her exercises, and suggests you set up on a sticky mat. Now, this could be annoying if you don't have the items, though the mat is really optional and the Swiss ball can be replaced in most cases with a chair. But I was glad -- for a while, every exercise DVD I bought came with a free elastic band, and I somehow have acquired two Swiss balls I don't quite know what to do with. So I'm happy to play with a program that teaches me how to use them.

The workout is divided into several sections:

A segment on Pelvic Floor Work (separate from the full workout)
Warm Up
Upper Body
Lower Body
Stretch
Relaxation

There is also an intro and a section on Diastitis recti, and Patricia tells you throughout the workout which moves to avoid if you have the latter.

In general, this is the kind of video that looks super easy to do when you watch it on screen, and is in fact much more challenging. The warmup is probably the only one I've done on a prenatal video that really warmed my muscles. The upper body segment uses the elastic band. Most of its moves are not terribly strenuous, but you will definitely feel some of them. (And the upper body tends to be neglected on prenatal workout videos, so I think it's valuable.

I purchased this DVD in my 3rd trimester and found it to be such a fantastic workout. It helped with easing my hips and upper body pain and I love that it uses a ball and resistance band! I took my time researching prenatal DVD's and found Patricia's to be the most suitable for what I was looking for in a workout... I have tried other DVD's that expected a pregnant woman to do exercises that were uncomfortable and not suitable. I love that Patricia herself is pregnant while doing her workout and not just in her first or second trimester. She has an understanding of what we can do and what helps makes us feel good during the workout. I thoroughly enjoyed this DVD and highly recommend it! I even wrote to Patricia on her Belly Beautiful page on Facebook after my first workout to thank her for such a wonderful DVD. I am also very excited to try her new postnatal DVD that is coming out soon!

Finally, a workout that is perfectly paced for pregnancy. As a therapist, I would recommend this to my patients as an adjunct to their daily activities. This program is easily modified for those in the 3rd trimester, a time when many women are afraid to challenge the body. Patricia is quite knowledgable on the prenatal body and has created a safe workout for mommies to be! I look forward to watching her follow-up DVD on postnatal fitness!

I have ordered many pregnancy DVD's and this by far is the best. Patricia has amazing energy and makes you believe that you can achieve and maintain your fitness during your pregnancy. She acknowledges that everyday your energy level can be different and Belly Beautiful is perfect since you can choose to do just portions of the DVD or all of it depending on how you feel that day. Even though I have many DVD's this is the one I reach for daily and I always feel refreshed and energized afterwards. She is a terrific instructor and you enjoy listening to her guide you and your growing belly thru a wonderful workout. Pregnancy should be celebrated and she helps you do just that. I have continued to use this DVD to get back in shape after the birth of my daughter.

I got this whilst in my first trimester but found that I couldn't do it until the start of my second.

It provides a nice combination of cardio and moderate strength training. You can increase or decrease the intensity using either stronger or thinner resistance bands. This makes the DVD good throughout pregnancy.

The instructor talks quite a lot, but is not too annoying, and she is always encouraging, so that's nice.

A good DVD.

At Last there is a DVD that isn't just yoga based. I love your DVD, it's inspiring and is great to pop on when you have some spare time to yourself. What a great mix of exercises. It's superb how you embrace pregnancy and work with what you have. There is no need to feel unfit when you are pregnant. This Belly Beautiful DVD kept me feeling great during all stages of my pregnancy and made it easier to bounce back into shape after my son was born. THANKS!

I purchased this workout to use on the days I wasn't doing straight cardio. You do have to purchase a ball or at least have 3 pound free weights available for the workout to be useful. It is a straight forward workout and the music and host are not annoying! I am pleased with this purchase and will definitely use it throughout my pregnancy.
