This is by far the BEST prenatal workout video available. This is my second pregnancy and I wish this were available during my first. I spent lots of money on other videos that were not challenging enough. This video focuses on toning the areas that can get flabby during pregnancy: arms, glutes, thighs and abs with weight and strength training. These areas needn't be out-of-shape due to pregnancy. Because of this video I have been able to maintain (and build) my muscle tone and prevent the flabbiness, most noticeably in my arms during this pregnancy. The workouts are short (20 minutes) so I can fit them in while my son is taking a nap.
I found this video six months into my second pregnancy and even though the workouts are labeled for the first and second trimesters I am still completely comfortable with the exercises. I am currently rotating the 4th, 5th and 6th month workouts.
I am thrilled that there is finally a workout challenging enough for people at a medium to high fitness level. You do need a fitness ball, fitness band, and dumb bells to experience the full effects of this workout video but the investment is worth it. My arms look great and I am confident wearing sleeveless shirts during the hot Florida weather because of Gabriel Reece's workouts. Arm jiggling is sure to be banished for users of this video.
Being in shape for my first pregnancy really made my labor and delivery fast and smooth, not to mention my recovery. I am sure the time spent during these workout sessions will only enhance my second time and provide an even faster return to pre-pregnancy form. I just hope her post-natal video comes out by the time I deliver in May!

The description of this video is deceptive. The workouts are tailored month-by-month. The first workout is for women in the first month of pregnancy, the second for the second month, and on through month six. So if you're already in your sixth month, like I am, this video isn't very useful.

A lot of equipment is required: light weights, bands, and a workout ball. Since I only have weights, I had to improvise for the exercises with the bands and workout ball.

Gabrielle awkwardly follows the directions of her trainer. It doesn't seem like the two planned the workouts very well. Gabrielle appears to not to know what's coming next.

While Gabrielle looks gorgeous, she doesn't smile and she seems nervous and uncomfortable in front of the camera.

The workouts are very short, and I didn't feel like I accomplished much in the 20 minutes. It was awkward to follow, not very fun, challenging, or satisfying. I guess if you're looking for a quick workout, it'll do. But I'm pretty disappointed.

I bought this DVD when it first came out and I was nearing the end of my first trimester. I was looking for something that would be fun, work all the "zones", and be challenging enough to give me a good, but safe workout. Not to mention a workout that wouldn't take hours to do. This turned out to be exactly the workout I wanted.

I love that there is both a warm-up and cool-down for both the first and second trimester workouts. Also, I like that they have a ~15-minute workout per month, so you can do just that or more, depending on how you feel.

I personally like the casual nature of the DVD -- like the trainer telling Gabby to keep that belly button in and she responds that it is in. :) I also really like the changes throughout the workouts from using a ball to bands to weights or combinations. That keeps me more mentally engaged.

Now in my second trimester, I do in fact feel like the title of the DVD -- fit and healthy. I would recommend this to anyone who is already active and wants to stay strong as their baby belly continues to grow.

"Fit & Healthy Prenatal Workout" contains six workouts (1-6 months of pregnancy). Gabby's other pregnancy DVD, "The Complete Fit & Healthy Pregnancy," contains these identical 6 workouts, plus 6 more (of which 3 are postnatal to help get your body back in shape), for only $2.00 more. Do not spend your money on this one when you can get the 12-workout one instead. Nothing in the packaging or description alerted me that I was duplicate buying, so I wasted the money on this one. Also, make sure you read the "tips" section, which is poorly placed at the end rather than the beginning, because it provides very important information about safe-techniques to do everything from the exercises themselves to getting up and down from floor exercises. Finally, I did find it irritating that several of the exercises require a second person to help you. Although her trainer says you can "hold onto a door" or "secure your band to something," I don't have a door that I can pull against the way she was pulling against him, or anything I can attach a band to and pull my entire body weight against without moving it (she used her trainer for these). Overall, even if these workouts were effective for her, with the assistance of her trainer, they were not well thought out for how efficient and effective they would be for a single woman at home trying to do all of this alone. That being said, the actual exercises are appropriate, challenging, and physically effective, if you can make them work with all the extras that you need.
