Fitness for Moms and Moms-to-be. Review and Giveaway

I've had the pleasure of crossing paths around the internet with Canadian Personal Trainer, Jacqueline Gradish for a while now. She is even a contributor here on Her web site, as well as her fitness advice are always outstanding. Her site is called Baby Bump Fitness.The focus is for soon-to-be moms and new moms. Jacqueline provides safe, quick & effective fitness solutions that really work, including workouts, rehab exercises and nutrition tips.

Recently, Jacqueline published two new E-books for sale on her site. They are Pregnancy Fitness Program and Busy Moms Fitness Program. Each E-book sells for $29.99, but three lucky winners will have a chance to win the E-book of their choice. Here is a summary of each E-book in more detail:

Baby Bump Pregnancy Fitness System

A comprehensive strength training program with seven different 10–15 minute routines that are trimester specific. Each routine includes foam rolling, warm up, strength routine focusing on balance/posture/function and core, cool down/pelvic floor and static stretches.

My review: This is certainly something that I wish I had during my two pregnancies. I did some prenatal yoga, but other than that, I felt kind of on my own in terms of pregnancy exercises. Numerous studies show how important it is to keep your body fit and healthy during pregnancy (unless you have limitations according to your doctor). Jacqueline has provided a comprehensive workout for expectant mothers. All of her exercises include easy to follow instructions and photos to help ensure correct form and posture.

Baby Bump Busy Mom Fitness Program

The Baby Bump Busy Mom program was built to focus initially on post-rehabilitative postural exercises, then regaining strength to care for your children, and naturally progressing to fat loss.

My Review: Jacqueline takes moms through those first post-pregnancy weeks to really focusing on getting that pre-pregnancy body back. The six-week program provides slow and steady pacing that is essential to proper progression and injury prevention. Similar to the Pregnancy workout, excellent step-by-step instructions and photos are provided. This is a great workout for travel as well. It's super easy to just print a copy for your purse or suitcase and your workouts will always be on hand.

E-Book Example

In addition to these great E-books, Jacqueline has written some excellent mini-guides that are free when you sign up for her newsletter at

I highly recommend the Baby Bump E-books as well as Jacquiline's web site and health and fitness advice. I subscribe to her newsletter myself and stop by for tips often. Even though my children are now 5 and 7, most of her tips are still relevant and helpful.
