Product Description

"Erin’s a pro at fitness, she’s a pro at pregnancy, and she fuses these together for two perfect prenatal workouts. I highly recommend this fitness program." —Ellen Barrett, M.S., bestselling exercise video star and author of Weights for Weight Loss

Staying fit and energized throughout your pregnancy just got easier. Custom-created by Hollywood trainer and Hollywood Mom ERIN O’BRIEN, Prenatal Fitness Fix is a unique program that quickly and effectively conditions your growing body. Modified Pilates, kegels, sports conditioning, and true-blue body sculpting seamlessly blend together in Erin’s two workouts. You’ll get it all: fat-burning cardio, muscle toning, strength training, and tension-relieving stretches.

The first workout—40 minutes long—is like an exercise class in the comfort of your own home. No special equipment needed, just clear some space in your living room. Erin’s a genius at keeping your mind focused, your body invigorated, and your spirits up. The second workout—20 minutes long—is for you and a partner. Erin and her husband, actor JAMES DENTON (Desperate Housewives, The Pretender), take you through a circuit-training partner series. It’s the perfect way to include others in your pregnancy journey!

ERIN O’BRIEN has 10 years of experience as a pre/postnatal exercise specialist working in elite fitness clubs in both New York City and Los Angeles. She holds several certifications, including one in pre/postnatal training from the Esquerre Fitness Group.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Workout for the Most Part February 8, 2007
Format:DVD
I did the 40 minute routine for the 1st time yesterday. I am only 8 weeks pregnant and found this DVD to be somewhat challenging. I can't imagine what it would be like for someone who is further along. I would recommend this workout for someone that is already a seasoned exerciser. It's fast paced, so I would not recommend this DVD for a beginner. I am an avid runner (average 8-15 miles/week) and regular gym visitor (4 days/week using an elliptical and bike), a yoga student (1-2 days/week) and a former step aerobic student. What I didn't like about this routine was that I had to re-arrange my furniture in order to do some of the exercises in Segment 1 (the 40 minutes is divided into 4 segments.) I wished the DVD had prepared me for what was needed as far as "equipment." I had to keep running around the living room/dining room to "find" and "arrange" the needed equipment. So those of you that wish to purchase this DVD, you will need a sturdy coffee table, the edge of your couch, a flat wall, a dining room chair, a living room cushioned chair (I don't have one of these and used the loveseat) and an exercise mat. The other thing I didn't like about the DVD were some of the crazy camera angles and the fact that Erin doesn't always countdown the number of reps. For some of the floor exercises, you are supposed to keep a long neck (looking down while on all fours), however Erin wasn't giving instructions and I had to keep looking up at the TV to figure out what I supposed to be doing. Overall, I did have a pretty good workout. It got my heart rate up and I did sweat a little. I'm sure I will get better at keeping up with the routine.

5.0 out of 5 stars grateful for this workout April 5, 2007
By sally
Format:DVD
This is the first time I have ever reviewed a product, but I felt I had to say something about this DVD. I have always been a fitness enthusiast, but for the last year or so had let it slide, and then I had a high-risk first trimester and did nothing. But I've been doing the workout nearly daily for the last couple of months (I'm at 7 mos). At the beginning I did everything very gingerly until I was confident that all the moves were safe etc., and I have never had a problem. As soon as the warmup starts, it puts me in the mood to workout and the 40 minutes speed by. My belly is *huge* but I feel strong and toned everywhere else, which is nice. After the workout I often do 20-30 minutes of yoga (Sara Holliday).

Anyway, the DVD has made a difference in my pregnancy, both physically and psychologically, and I wanted to recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for at-home workouts December 26, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD after reading several of the reviews published on this site. I wanted a home workout DVD since winter was here and I knew I couldn't get out as much because of weather and demands of my current children.
Let me state that before I got pregnant, I was extremely physically fit and active. I exercise at a gym probably 5-6 times a week. I was able to run 4 miles a day and workout with weights. Once I got pregnant, I was able to keep up my physical activity, but once I hit 14-15 weeks pregnant, I could no longer run and I would get light headed when I was weight training, so I knew I needed to tone down the workouts. I walked outside from 16-21 weeks, but I started to get very severe round ligament pain in my abdomen as I got larger (this is my fourth pregnancy) and it would start up about 10 minutes into my walk, so walking was fast becoming a workout I could solely do for my exercise.

I searched and searched for pregnancy DVDs that would provide a workout challenge for me (so I could stay in shape), but didn't cause any pain or discomfort. Often, I would rent pregnancy workouts from mail/online DVD rental sites to test them out first. This DVD workout has become my new favorite type of exercise and so I bought the DVD since I do it several times a week. I don't get ANY round ligament pain (RL pain feels like severe cramps on the sides of your belly, but once you stop the physical activity, they go away). Erin's workout is challenging - in fact - I could not complete the whole DVD workout the first few times I did it - I could only finish 20 minutes of it or I would skip certain parts. Now, I can finish the whole thing and I don't get out of breath because she is really good at pacing and providing breaks - yet she keeps you up on your workout.

5.0 out of 5 stars From a man's point of view. August 7, 2009
Format:DVD
I am a male Personal Trainer that has a large clientele of females. Two of my clients became pregnant last year and they both asked me to keep training them throughout their pregnancy. I was a little apprehensive about that because of their condition. During their first trimester they both complained that I wasn't the same trainer, that I was being too easy on them. I was hesitant to push them like I did before. So I purchased Erin's DVD and watched it several times until I came up with a routine like hers. I appreciated the fact that Erin was about 9 months pregnant when she shot this DVD. They were both happy that it was challenging but not overly tough. I adjusted the intensity down as they got further along. I'm happy to say that one stayed with me for 8 months and the other for 7 months. Both babies' were healthy when they were born (however, one started crying when I held him and talked to him. I think he recognized my voice from telling his mom to do one more rep).
I'm now using Erin's "Postnatal exercise" DVD and find it very informative for explaining to them that their body needs to go through rehab before we start the more intense exercises. They both feel they are in better shape after these births than they were with their older children.
I would strongly recommend these DVD's to any expectant mother that wants to keep exercising through their pregnancy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, quick video
This is the best prenatal DVD I've done. It is a pretty good workout but tailored so you can do it through your whole pregnancy. The squats really keep everything in shape.
