Pregnancy Pump Up
When your belly’s bulging with baby, your highest priority might not be to tone up your abs, but many pregnant women can still fit in good sweat sessions. A new fitness center, Hot Mama Fitness Studio in Bethesda, Md., helps expecting moms stay in shape during their pregnancies and helps new moms bounce back after baby. The owner saw a need for pre-natal fitness, not just the pre-natal yoga classes that are widely offered. Mommy members can bring their children to most classes, and with child care available at the studio, the center makes it easy to fit fitness into new moms’ schedules. With classes like Hip Mama Post-Natal Bellydance and Pre-Natal Hula Mama, I hope this is a trend that takes off.
