A Mom-Friendly Fitness Program For Bouncing Back the First Year
After Having A Baby by LaReine Chabut
Unless you live in a cave, you’ve heard about celebrities
such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Catherine Zeta Jones, Courtney
Cox, Debra Messing, Sara Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon and so
on, who've recently had babies…and just how fast all of these
glamour moms have dropped their baby weight and bounced back into
shape. But what about the rest of us?
What about the 84% of women who gained over the allotted 35 or so
pounds during pregnancy, whose squishy tummies stick around for
several months, who don’t have four or five hours a day to
devote to exercising, let alone the means to employ a personal trainer,
a personal chef and a nanny to help them take off the extra weight?
There is hope and it’s called Lose That Baby Fat! Written
by well-known fitness personality and author of the forthcoming
Exercise Balls for Dummies, LaReine Chabut is a mom who knows just
how hard it really is to get back into shape after having a baby
and she offers up this reality-based fitness program for the average
woman trying to shed excess pounds after childbirth.
Organized in a comprehensive month-to-month format similar in style
to the What To Expect…series, each chapter provides moms with
a detailed list of what they can expect their bodies to look and
feel like --from the first 6 weeks after giving birth throughout
the entire first year – and then offers step-by-step instructions
for specific exercises that provide maximum results in the shortest
period of time.
Broken down into 10-minute workouts that highlight a different body
part each month, the exercises can be varied in intensity and duration
as mom gains strength along the way. Filled with anecdotes from
other new moms who share their thoughts and fears about how it feels
to be in such a different body after giving birth, plus helpful
tips and sidebars throughout, Lose That Baby Fat! promises to help
women feel good about their bodies at whatever stage they may be
in their quest for postpartum fitness success.
Note spin-off exercise products, companion video, and reality television
series are currently in development.
