I was desperate for an adequate workout this pregnancy (I used to run and lift with occasionally vinyasa yoga), so I bought a few workout DVDs. This is not my favorite. Here are my pros/cons

1. The core workout gave me a fair leg/core workout.

1. To get a complete workout, you have to repeat a segment 1-2 times, which is dull watching the exact same video that many times
2. The audio is not very good, when she looks at the ground or turns her head, the audio changes.
3. Most of the workouts require an exercise ball, which was not clear when I bought them. I had to find mine, dust it off, find an air pump....(you get the picture)
4. I've never done pilates, and I felt that I might have been injuring myself during that entire DVD, because she doesn't comment very much on form, so I was not sure what to do. Also, I had to do all 5 workouts at once to feel like I did anything useful for my body.

I have been trading off between these two dvds and I like them a lot. I like that I get some good ab work because I really need that. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that my thera band broke after only a few days of use, and I am 6 feet tall so I need it long rather than short! It is still long enough that I can use it by holding the very ends but if it breaks again I will have to find something else to replace it. The only other thing is that I have sacroiliac joint dysfunction and one of the leg workouts works my lower back where my problem is, a little bit harder than I would prefer. But it is much better than not working out at all(!!) and these dvds are fast becoming some of my favorites. My joint pain is always much better when I exercise regularly. Sometimes my 2-year-old tries to do the moves with me (lol). Thanks Erica!

UPDATE 2/2013: I am now 33 weeks into my 5th pregnancy. My favorite videos are 10 Minute Solution: Prenatal Pilates with Lizbeth Garcia, Perfect Pregnancy Workout vol. 1 with Karyne Steben, and these two videos, Knocked-Up Fitness with Erica Ziel. Over the Christmas holidays, we went out of town for a while, and I didn't exercise at all during that time, and I ate a lot more than I needed to, so at this point I am still heavier than I want to be. But I have been exercising consistently for close to a month since that break, and I am still loving these videos. I have been focusing on one video per week, which is nice to stick to something for a week but over the month I get some variety. I have been working out six days a week, and I have stopped drinking everything except water and sometimes milk, and I have been eating a lot less desserts lately. For the past few weeks my weight has pretty much stayed the same, and my back pain is very minimal.

I had such high hopes for this product. However, I found the production to be of poor quality and very distracting. The sound recording was not very good (you can hear traffic passing outside the window) and the lack of camera angles made it difficult to grasp some of the exercises and techniques. I appreciate the home-grown concept but it did not translate well. I would not recommend this product.

I'm one of those workout types that associates discomfort / sweating with a great workout so knowing that I needed to take it a bit easier while pregnant I looked into alternate methods to tone and sculpt. Since I have always had a muscular build I I certainly didn't want to bulk up during pregnancy, but rather, just maintain what I've already got.

While I'm used to Jillian Michaels DVDs, I found this one to be a nice alternative. I could stretch and tone up knowing that everything was safe - hard to know all the proper modifications - and still feel a little bit of a burn but not in a way that wiped me out. over-flexed my muscles/tendons. You can repeat any circuit 2-3 times to increase your uptake, too as you get used to the workout and your tolerance builds.

Overall, I think it's really great. It's not all that I do. I still run 3-4 miles a couple times a week and then I do this 1-2 times a week. I did a lot of research on videos because I didn't want fluff. I'm a big advocate of working out for both physical reasons and my sanity, so I wanted something that allowed me to log a good work out throughout my pregnancy. I'm 25 weeks and still going strong!

I could not more highly recommend this series of videos for expectant moms. I bought these when I was 18 weeks into my first pregnancy and have used them consistently throughout (1 week from my due date today!). These videos are great for any fitness level as the workouts are short and allow the individual to create their own workout depending on which combo of workouts you choose. The more advanced athlete can repeat workouts for great burn and great results.
Using these videos 5-6 days a week, along with a 30 min walk each day has allowed me to maintain definition in my arms and legs throughout pregnancy. I have had NO back pain, NO sciatica and NO hip pain during my pregnancy. Physically I have felt great and contribute a lot of it to my daily workouts with this series- maintaining strength and flexibility with these workouts has kept me a happy healthy pregnant lady! The workouts also have a lot of pelvic tilt work, squats and hip strengthening which are all recommended by my midwives, chiropractor and birthing class teacher to prepare the body for labor and birth.
I'm very excited to see my body still so strong and lean with my due date just a week away and am confident that these videos have helped me maintain my fitness level over the past nine months. Buy them- you won't be sorry.
