Youíre pregnant and exhausted and now people want you to exercise? Sure, itís good for you, great for the baby, and should help with laboróbut isnít walking up a flight of stairs enough of a workout? Enter Aqua Mom. Think of a gentle cardio workout in warm wateróof being weightless for an hour! Each class is limited to nine and combines swimming, yoga, and resistance training; sessions meet once a week for eight weeks ($240). In the water you donít need to worry about balance or stress on the body, and you can get started as early as you like and continue all the way up until arrival time. Founder Andrea Pritchett actually has women come to class while in early labor.
