I've gotten around 5-6 prenatal exercise videos through swapadvd and this one is the best! It gives you a good workout. Many of the prenatal workouts go too easy on the user. I love this dvd!

Good Workout for the Most Part

"I did the 40 minute routine for the 1st time yesterday. I am only 8 weeks pregnant and found this DVD to be somewhat challenging. I can't imagine what it would be like for someone who is further along. I would recommend this workout for someone that is already a seasoned exerciser. It's fast paced, so I would not recommend this DVD for a beginner. I am an avid runner (average 8-15 miles/week) and regular gym visitor (4 days/week using an elliptical and bike), a yoga student (1-2 days/week) and a former step aerobic student. What I didn't like about this routine was that I had to re-arrange my furniture in order to do some of the exercises in Segment 1 (the 40 minutes is divided into 4 segments.) I wished the DVD had prepared me for what was needed as far as "equipment." I had to keep running around the living room/dining room to "find" and "arrange" the needed equipment. So those of you that wish to purchase this DVD, you will need a sturdy coffee table, the edge of your couch, a flat wall, a dining room chair, a living room cushioned chair (I don't have one of these and used the loveseat) and an exercise mat. The other thing I didn't like about the DVD were some of the crazy camera angles and the fact that Erin doesn't always countdown the number of reps. For some of the floor exercises, you are supposed to keep a long neck (looking down while on all fours), however Erin wasn't giving instructions and I had to keep looking up at the TV to figure out what I supposed to be doing. Overall, I did have a pretty good workout. It got my heart rate up and I did sweat a little. I'm sure I will get better at keeping up with the routine."
Provides a great workout!

"I bought this video at 5 months along, needing a good workout. Prior to becoming pregnant, I was an avid runner. Once pregnant, I turned to walking and it just wasn't giving me the heart-pumping workout I needed and got from a good run. I decided to give this video a try and LOVED it. The workout is done in her own living room, which is a welcomed change from the typical staged workout rooms. She moves quickly and doesn't spend a lot of time explaining every move, which I appreciated. You simply move from one exercise to the next, in order to keep your heart rate up. I have purchased several videos and always find myself bored with the instructor's lengthy explanations.
I recommend this video for anyone willing to accept a tough and challenging workout! You will sweat in no time and feel so much more strengthened and toned!"
Wow it's a workout!!!

"This video is very fast moving and really gets your heart rate up. I had to slow down many times in order to keep my heart rate at a healthy level. If you are enjoy a heavy workout you will love this dvd."
