recommend your favorite prenatal workout DVD

I have been on amazon and I feel like my eyes are going buggy. I want to find something that is about 20 minutes long and then possibly with a cool down or something. I'm not in great shape, but want to do something with low impact on my knees that doesn't take an hour.

Any suggestions would be great! Thanks!

Re: recommend your favorite prenatal workout DVD

  • My favorite is the Summer Sanders prenatal dvd. It has a workout per trimester. There is a full (45min) workout and express (30min) workout. I think it would be nice for you because IMO it's not that strenuous and definitely low impact.

    I have a prenatal yoga dvd from Shiva Rea and I think it sucks - too long and makes me sleepy. I also had the 2nd trimester dvd by Lindsey Brin. It was ok but I ended up liking Summer Sanders better.

  • I also really liked the Summer Sanders DVD.  Another DVD that I really liked was Yoga Booty Ballet, Baby on the Way.  I always felt really good when I was done.  There was stretching, yoga, low impact aerobics and light weight lifting.  It is about 30 minutes long.

    Gabrielle Reece has a DVD that has a 20 minute workout for each month of your pregnancy.
