Lindsay offers several programs through Moms into Fitness (http://www.momsintofitness.com) that can be purchased individually or in a care package.10 Day Core MeltDown for Moms.

Why It’s Right for You

Lindsay offers several programs through Moms into Fitness (http://www.momsintofitness.com) that can be purchased individually or in a care package. There are several to choose from, include a postnatal slimdown, pregnancy workout routines, and two 60 day programs for weight loss and leaning down. Her programs are 4 day or 5 days per week workouts, and include a variety of core strengthening, cardio, muscle development, and yoga or stretching programs.

Why It’s Not for You

These exercises are designed for women who are pregnant or just had their babies. While the exercises can be used for slimming down, men might be a bit uncomfortable with this routine.

In addition, the DVDs, exercises, and book are all individually purchased; while you pay a one-time cost for purchase, your expenses can add up.

Results Expected

Throughout most of the programs for the pregnancy care during exercise, it can be expected that the exercises will help you throughout your pregnancy by keeping muscles active and strong. This can also help with the birth of your child. For the post-pregnancy workouts, results can be clearly seen after 60 days for the workout DVDs.

Nutrition

Lindsay offers some nutrition advice, but maintains that exercise is more of a priority since “bad dieting can be offset by working out.” With some of her programs, such as the post-pregnancy 60 Day Slim Down, there is a meal plan included for breastfeeding mothers.

Five Pros:
  1. As little as 24 minutes a day:

    The exercises, particularly at the beginner levels, start with smaller workout routines to help build up a good workout foundation.

  2. Media Methods:

    The workouts are available through DVDs and downloads, which can be a lot better than streaming videos, since Internet connection is not needed after the initial download or order.

  3. Money Saver:

    Gym memberships are often more expensive than we like, so it is nice you can order which plans and workouts you would like to implement into your workout strategy.

  4. No Gym Needed:

    You can easily work at home with the DVDs and plans you order.

  5. Credibility:

    Lindsay Brin has a lot of professional and personal success in these programs. With her research and degrees, her workouts are very well planned, and can really help women who are pregnant or just had a baby safely workout.

Five Cons:
  1. A Certain Amount of Discipline is Required:

    Membership requires discipline on the part of the member, just like every gym. Jillian’s subscribers and members will get their daily subscription email, but there is no tracker to make sure the member is keeping up with their assigned programs.

  2. Getting Started:

    Because you will be home, it can be hard, especially after giving birth, or if you have kids, to set up a safe workout area where you can really focus on exercising.

  3. Injuries or Physical Decline can Hamper Progress:

    If you have any additional medical conditions, it will be hard to start on a level where you will be able to lose weight quickly. Building up muscle and stamina when you have not worked out in a long time, or lead a sedentary lifestyle.

  4. Support:

    While Lindsay has a blog she writes, there are not many community supports available, so if you work out better with a buddy, it might be hard to be consistent with this program at home.

  5. Buyer Beware:

    Lindsay’s programs are all separately purchased, so it might be hard to just buy the ones you need. You will need to make sure for your buyer satisfaction that you research which programs best fit your needs. “Every pregnancy/child is different,” they say, and this can lead to confusion or dissatisfaction with your programs.
