In this week’s podcast, FitPro’s managing director, Jane Waller, speaks to international presenter and author Desi Bartlett about the ideas behind her latest book, Your Strong, Sexy Pregnancy. They explore how women can feel empowered and benefit from exercise during pregnancy.

Some of the key take-home comments from this podcast are:

“Sexy is something that means magnetic and confident and when we stand up tall and we have good posture and we present ourselves in a way where we feel ready to engage with people”

“During pregnancy that inner core has a … room-mate, someone is living in there. So not only do we need to keep it strong but we also need to be aware of how we are approaching it”
