QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
Hello. My wife has been a personal trainer for 6 years now. I heard her talk about wanting a new career path in fitness. Where would I find information for her about getting started into prenatal fitness? I think she would love this new career path.

If you know where I could find this information out please let me know.

Thank you.

Can I Continue Mountain Biking in Early Pregnancy?

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
Hi. I am just shy of 4-weeks pregnant and am in good shape. Before knowing I was pregnant, I was riding around 9 hours a week and am starting to put in more hours mountain biking. I am an ex-professional mountain bike racer and coach mountain bike skills in spring and summer for women. Can I continue to mountain bike ride this early in pregnancy? As well I have a very labor intensive job where I lift heavy rubbermaids filled with coffeebeans anywhere from 15-50 pounds all day. I hope you can answer my questions.

Thanks,
Jeanie

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
Hello. I have a 2-month-old baby, and started back at the gym. It's okay'ed to do anything as far as exercising with my doctor. I would like to know if this routine sounds good. Do you think I'll start to see a difference? I know it takes a while to get back into shape. I go to the YMCA 4 times a week. I usually start on the elliptical machine for 20 minutes, then I go do the resistance machines.
