About the series

The Phoenix is a mythical bird that symbolizes rebirth and transformation. This prenatal program is an opportunity for renewal and committing to health for expectant mothers and their growing baby.

Included in this three-trimester series are 9 tabata-style workouts, 3 core-focused classes, and 1 recovery routine. Every movement was specifically designed for expectant mothers and focus on safe, effective exercises modifications to keep you active throughout your pregnancy. All classes are led by a pregnant pre- and postnatal certified fitness instructor.

The exercises in each video were created with your changing body and growing baby in mind. Each prenatal workout was developed to reflect what your body is going through in each trimester, and in each trimester you will repeat four unique workouts. In the first trimester, when you may feel tired or have low energy, the movements are geared towards building strength and are less intense. During the second trimester, when you experience your “superwoman” phase, you’ll have the opportunity to use hand weights and enjoy new variations. The exercises in the third trimester focus on balance and are modified so you can use a chair or a wall to keep moving and active during your final stage in pregnancy. Each workout includes a warm up and cool down, so you are taken care of before and after each session. Soothing and restorative stretches are also included to relieve common pregnancy tension in your back, hip flexors, and calves.
