Certified instructor description:

Varied and effective exercises designed for each stage of your pregnancy. Denise teaches and motivates while the all-pregnant class follows along. The cardio workout is for the entire pregnancy — simple marches, step-touches and taps (cued to match your shifting center of gravity). The first toning segment is used during trimesters one and two. It focuses on overall strength while maintaining a healthy, changing body. The second toning segment is third-trimester-specific. It features moves that reduce current discomfort and ease childbirth. The DVD also includes a post-natal workout designed to re-tone your abs. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. Follows American College of Gynecologists guidelines. ©2006.
