So you just found out that you are pregnant - YAY! This is such an exciting time for you and you can hardly wait to meet your little one! But soon you realize that being pregnant means your body will change...a lot. And the last thing on your mind with your changing body (and mood) is working out, but did you know there are a ton of benefits to exercising while pregnant? Not only will your mood remain balanced, you are also likely to gain less weight and your delivery will be made easier.

1) Yoga

Most Popular

Yoga is easily one of the most popular prenatal classes. Not only does Yoga help you relax, it will also help to keep you in shape while toning your muscles. 

2) Spinning

Spinning while pregnant is a great way to maintain healthy weight gain, while instantly boosting your mood. You can go at your own pace while in class, but be sure to let the instructor know that you are preggers! 

3) Zumba

If you want to bust a move, even while being pregnant, why not try a low impact Zumba class? Be sure to get the stamp of approval from your doctor and once you are in the clear, go out and have a blast, while getting a great workout! 

4) Pilates

Just like yoga, prenatal pilates is a great workout with low impact. Pilates helps improve flexibility and balance while strengthening your core muscles. 

5) Water Aerobics

Water aerobics is an amazing workout that is easy on the joints, but still challenging enough to break a sweat (even under water!). Water aerobics allows you to perform exercises under water that you would not be able to perform on land, which can feel super rewarding.
