What is Pregnancy Barre?
Pregnancy Barre with Britany is a great way to feel strong and stay active from bump through to birth, with three weeks of low-intensity workouts available for each trimester that you can complete and repeat as your bump grows.
Each week there is a lower, upper and full-body barre workout which will each take you 20-30 minutes, plus optional weekly low-intensity cardio sessions.
This program is perfect for home or the gym as all you need is a resistance band, chair and set of dumbbells.

However, using your body weight to complete the exercises instead is fine, as well as swapping pieces of equipment for objects you have lying around at home.

- 2x Resistance ( 3 available )
