Expecting More® is also available through Amazon for U.S. residents.
Prenatal fitness guru and new mom, Sara Haley, designed Expecting More® to help fit and healthy moms-to-be stay motivated, inspired and fit throughout their pregnancy. Based on her own experience with pregnancy, as well as training other pre and post-natal women, Sara saw the need for a comprehensive prenatal DVD training program. Expecting More® provides six different workouts to give women a variety of cardio, strength and dynamic flexibility exercises. “Every day is different and every pregnancy is different, so I wanted to give women the options to implement what they need when they need to,” said creator Sara Haley. “I am so proud of this program and I hope these workouts will help change the way prenatal fitness is viewed.”
According to guidelines, women can continue to exercise at a moderate and safe level for them. Sara wanted to give women, like herself, who had established a high level of physical activity prior to pregnancy, an opportunity to be motivated, challenged and safe as they worked out during their pregnancies. Rather than completely removing exercises like hops, rotations and balance challenges, the program offers modifications for varying levels of pregnancy and careful explanations of how to execute exercises safely, so viewers can make informed decisions as to whether the moves are appropriate for them. Sara also addresses important topics, such as why every woman should incorporate kegels into their prenatal routine and core workouts that will help avoid diastis recti (the separation of the abdominal wall that can sometimes occur during pregnancy). The DVD includes several tools that allow users to personalize their experience, including the option to mix and match workouts or to follow a calendar for more structured trainer guidance.
Sara believes that her program will give women who EXPECT MORE out of their workouts something they can use during their pregnancies to feel strong and sexy, stay fit and have fun! Sara now has a healthy, beautiful baby boy and smiles as she looks back on her pregnancy journey. “I am so grateful that I developed this program. Staying strong and fit not only made my pregnancy easier, but it’s certainly helped me bounce back to my pre-baby body as well!”
