Fit and Fabulous, following my personalized routine from Dave throughout pregnancy helped me stay healthy and keep my back strong!

Shortly after we found out we were pregnant with our 2nd baby I messaged Dave, as I knew I wanted to continue working out as much as possible throughout my pregnancy. I am a runner and with my first pregnancy my lower back started hurting a lot early on, and I had to give up my running early in my 2nd trimester.

I specifically asked Dave for help strengthening my lower back, he immediately created a personalized program for me, week by week for the remainder of my pregnancy. I did have days when pregnancy would just leave me exhausted and I would not want to work out. But I just tried to keep at it everyday. I know that because of this strength training program I followed, I was able to run into my 3rd trimester this time around. I also had NO back pain with this pregnancy. I would have been happy with just those two results, but on top of that I was able to “bounce back” faster after our daughter was born as well.

I did have to have a c-section because our daughter was breach, but still was able to get back to running/working out 6 weeks postpartum, and just raced my first 5K postpartum this Saturday 12 weeks postpartum and set a  new PR for myself, finishing in 24:20.

I am almost back to my pre-baby weight and am very happy to have had the diligent training program from Dave to help me accomplish these goals!

12 Weeks Postpartum, race day! Almost back to pre-pregnancy weight!
