The book includes stories of real women who have completed Tracey's plan. I am one of her success stories. I started her plan when my son was 9 months old so I lost the pregnancy weight prior to starting her plan but my body shape was different and it was tough fitting into my pre-pregnancy clothes. I was so out of shape and have never enjoyed exercise but her plan was very easy to follow. I quickly lost 12 pounds and toned up and all of my friends and family were so impressed! I was at the weight I was more than 10 years ago!! I am now pregnant with our second baby so I bought this book along with Tracey's Pregnancy System workout DVD (which I am really enjoying!!). It was so nice to start my pregnancy 12 pounds lighter than my previous pregnancy and I know I'll lose it all again. Thanks Tracey!!
I am not "uber-fit" but I have completed (and did reasonably well) a sprint-triathlon and a 10k. I find Tracy's workouts to be challenging enough. Her format is such you can make it as challenging or as easy as you need to. I am 32 weeks and have enjoyed having exercises geared toward my trimester.
The book also has interesting pregnancy info.
The after baby portion is pretty big, with a stroller workout, holding your baby as a weight workout, and a more intense 6 months post-partum workout. The author points out that each circuit is only 6 min that can be split up throughout the day (30 min total) for when you are busy with baby, since she wrote this book for moms who already had kids. So I think this book might be better described as an "after baby" fitness book, or a second baby fitness book. I'm keeping this one along with Mommy Fabulous: Complete Pregnancy Fitness and Nutrition Guide: Designed to Deliver a Fabulous Postpartum Figure (for variety & its focus on pre-baby workouts).
The only drawback I've found is that some of the exercise descriptions don't really match up to the pictures. It's really bizarre and seems like an editor should have caught that.

I loved the routine but found it a bit redundant to have 3 sections since the exercises were basically the same just slightly modified in each.Published 15 months ago by Sharon

Though this book is okay but she did not give a good description of how to follow the exercises during pregnacy she concentrated more on postpatum exercisePublished 24 months ago by funmi
