The exercise video for women who don’t excercise.
Reviewer: Jennifer L. Richardson
I think I am fairly healthy, I walk to work everyday and I am not overweight but I would NEVER go to the gym. I don’t like to “workout” but I wanted my baby to be healthy. I picked this video after trying several from the library. I put it in just to see what it was like. The woman leading it was so friendly and encouraging that I thought “I could do that” and before I knew it I was no longer sitting on the couch watching but actually finishing the workout. I didn’t get all sweaty; there is no hoping around or kicking your legs in the air. It focuses mainly on stretching and toning, parts of it I still can’t do fully but I keep working on it. I felt very safe the whole time, never wobbly or like I might fall. I would highly recommend this to any pregnant women looking for a workout video.
Good variety, low impact workout

I bought this for my wife, who is a fan of Callanetics, pilates, yoga, etc. She enjoyed the workout, because it retains elements of her favorite exercises but modifies or omits the parts that would be difficult or detrimental during pregnancy.
During her first time watching the video, I heard her say “Wow, that feels really good” several times, even to some of the exercises that looked a little bit pointless to me. This is definitely tailored to the pregnant woman, but I found that I was able to see some benefit from most of the exercises as well (I should point out that I reserve exercise for special occasions).
I especially like the partner-assisted workout, as it gave me a chance to help my wife with some range-of-motion exercises. I also liked the relaxed atmosphere and home setting. It feels professionally done, but not sterile.

Current research now shows multiple medical benefits of exercise for the pregnant women and her fetus. I highly recommend the 3-in-1 Pregnancy System™ as a safe workout that will help women feel great when they are pregnant.

Research states that exercise is essential for the health of the soon to be mother and baby, the 3-in-1 Pregnancy System™ has great safe exercises to keep the core and especially the pelvic floor muscles strong. I believe regular core stabilization and flexibility training can dramatically decrease complications such as Incontinence after child birth, because of this I recommend the Pregnancy System to patients and friends.

As an OB-GYN Nurse Practitioner, I encourage my pregnant patients to be active during their pregnancies, for their own health, and for the health of their baby. The 3-in-1 Pregnancy System™ provides an effective and, most importantly, safe workout for women before, during and after pregnancy. Tracey’s instructions and demonstrations of Pilates and Yoga exercise are clear and easy to follow, whether you are new to these routines or experienced in working out with Pilates, as I am. I feel comfortable in recommending the 3-in-1 Pregnancy System™ to my patients as an excellent addition to their pregnancy care.

Tracey Mallett’s video is a fabulous way to maintain fitness during pregnancy. It is also a great way to resume exercise after delivery. The modifications she provides makes it suitable and safe for a wide range of fitness levels. Her emphasis on correcting postural changes that occur during pregnancy through specific strengthening and flexibility exercises can help ease back pain, a common complaint. I would recommend the 3-in-1 Pregnancy System™ to any women who wants to follow a safe exercise routine during her prenatal and postpartum months.

I was having hip and lower back pain during my pregnancy, but then I started to do the 3-in-1 Pregnancy System™ with Pilates. These exercises strengthened my core which in turn helped to relieve pain. I was amazed on how strong I began to feel only after a few workouts. This new found strength helped me to cope with my ever changing body. It improved my posture and flexibility. I was able to continue with the DVD until the delivery of the baby. After giving birth with a caesarean delivery, I was surprised how great I felt. I swear it was from the core strength and overall conditioning I had developed from the Pregnancy System.
