Editorial Reviews

Pregnant with her second child, Gabby worked with a doctor and trainer to film 15 minute workouts from each month of her pregnancy as well as three months after her pregnancy. This DVD covers all 3 trimesters consisting of nine 15 minute exercises that are safe for women during their pregnancy as well as a warm up and cool down As a bonus, three- 15 minute exercises for women post- pregnancy complete with warm up and cool down have been included

4.0 out of 5 stars just what i was looking for September 29, 2008
i've done the 3 second trimester workouts....because that is where i am in my pregnancy. at first i thought i'd do all three at once for a 45 minute workout. i learned quickly that that was unnecessary. each one is a challenging full body workout. most other pregnancy videos i've done have not been challenging enough or did not work the whole body. this one surely does, safely....quads, hamstrings, butt, abs, back, shoulders, triceps, biceps, heart.
the equipment needed are light free weights, a stability ball, a resistance band, a chair and a towel. i did not rate this video with 5 stars because in my opinion, a resistance band is not easy to use anywhere. i am unable to anchor a band in the area i workout. so instead of the band, i use free weights when i'm able or no resistance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wish each exercise segment was longer June 4, 2009
By D. Ilg
If you want a very brief workout, this video is for you. I thought I'd string together 2 or 3 of the 15-minute workouts to make one longer workout, but found that each segment is too choppy to do that and have an effective workout.

Each exercise is only done for 4 or 5 reps, so I felt like I spent most of the time switching exercises rather than doing one.

Gabby is sweet, though, and adds real-mom commentary as she's doing the exercises. I would love this video if each exercise was just repeated 10-15 times, but then it would no longer be a 15-min workout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Challenging - in good and bad ways March 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
I worked out regularly for a year before my second pregnancy and really challenged myself with interval training and serious weight workouts. Still, when I began the Gabrielle Reece Complete Fit and Healthy Pregnancy, I felt the moves challenged my muscles safely. That has been great. I began with month 1 and have used it through my entire pregnancy into month 9, where I am currently. I really like Gabby's attitude throughout the workouts and the moves are designed by her trainer whom I believe has a degree in exercise physiology and really knows his stuff. THAT SAID, different workouts at various stages in this process have been very frustrating for a few reasons. You have to have A LOT of props: a chair that is very sturdy that you can also move by yourself very quickly, an exercise band, dumb bells at around 2 pounds, dumb bells at around 5 lbs, an exercise ball, an extra large bath towel or bath sheet, and different solid objects to wrap the band around at different heights that can support a fair amount of weight (I had a treadmill and a rowing machine that fit the bill here). While Gabby has her trainer helping her transition between and set up for different moves, most exercisers will not have an assistant and that can be very annoying. At times, they wanted you to have your head and neck on the exercise ball, a foot on the chair, and "now grab your dumb bells" - yeah right! I'm pregnant! I found ways to make it work and the workouts ARE effective, but there were times when I was learning a new workout for the month that I wanted to kick Mike the trainer. I had to keep the remote close because I usually had to pause while I set up for the next move. Gabby and Mike transitioned very quickly and were a few reps into it before I was ready to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for intermediate fitness level January 20, 2009
By J. bys
I bought this DVD exactly one year ago as I was just entering my 2nd trimester of pregnancy. After the "I'm pregnant, I can eat whatever I want!" mindset helped me pack on unnecessary extra weight, I decided to take things a little more seriously. One comment said that there was no cardio - that is true. However, I would pop this DVD in AFTER a good walk around town. Also, I would try to do 2 if not 3 of the workouts at a time.
Great workout, I was usually sweating beads when I was finished. Yes, there are several needed props (3-5 & 8-10lb weights, fitness ball, towel, resistance band), but they tell you things you can use to substitute. I actually felt that they made the workout more interesting and fun to follow.
Anyway, I strongly recommend this - just don't use it as your ONLY form of exercise. The workouts only go up to 6 months, but I was using this DVD right up until 40 weeks!

Good luck :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not What I was Expecting December 4, 2008
I was disappointed there was no cardio. I felt that there were too many props which interrupted the flow of the work out, because of this I lost interest quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but not my favorite prenatal workout September 5, 2010
By Jen
Verified Purchase
This is a good workout DVD, but I haven't used it as much as I have the "10 Minute Solution: Prenatal Pilates" that I purchased at the same time. The workouts are good, don't seem too long and there is a good variety. However (and this may be just me) I thought the way it was shot was kind of weird. There were lots of times when the camera was focused in on one specific body part (so when I was just learning the exercises I couldn't see what her whole body was doing.) I felt like it must have been filmed by a man, "ok, I realize she has amazing abs/shoulders/butt/etc... I'd like to see what the heck she's doing...." Also, the warm up and cool down are separate from the work outs so you have to select each one when you're doing them on the DVD, not too bad but not as motivational for a lazy non-exerciser like me. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Workout November 10, 2009

This is a great tape if you can't normally find time in the day to workout. The workouts are 15 minutes- I wish they were a little longer but great exercies for preparing for the big day.
