joined Barbara's "Mom & Me" fitness
class in 2001, three months after my first daughter
was born. I had gained 50 pounds in pregnancy and
had 30 left to lose. I needed help! When I found Barbara's
class in a local parenting magazine, I was delighted
to learn that I could workout and bring my baby along.
I started attending classes twice weekly and by the
time my daughter was nine months, I was back to my
pre-pregnancy weight. I
met some wonderful mothers in class and formed lasting relationships. In addition
to guiding me in exercise, Barbara took my nutritional
profile and provided me with nutrtional products to
help me build muscle tone and gain energy. They really
work! When I became pregnant with my second child
in 2003, I continued exercising 2-3 times a week in
Barbara's class with safe modifications she showed
me. Not only did I look great, I had less aches and
pains because my core muscles were supporting me.
I only gained 30 pounds with the second pregnancy,
and was back to my original weight within six months
of delivery. At ten months post-delivery, I found
myself ten pounds lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight
with a firm and sleek body! Wow!
