Try A Free Pregnancy Workout With Kayla Itsines

Co-founder and head trainer Kayla Itsines designed her popular Pregnancy with Kayla program so that expectant mums who had been cleared to exercise by their healthcare providers could feel strong and stay active throughout their pregnancies.

Combining her years of experience training women from every corner of the globe with her prenatal qualifications and first-hand experience, Kayla’s 40-week program supports women from bump through to birth.

Created during her second pregnancy with son Jax, Pregnancy with Kayla was inspired not only by demand from the Sweat Community, but Kayla’s own struggle to find appropriate workouts during her own pregnancy.

“I found it so difficult to navigate,” Kayla says of her first pregnancy with daughter Arna. “I wanted to create a program that would help women be the best version of themselves during pregnancy.”

Because each stage of pregnancy is so unique, Pregnancy with Kayla is uniquely tailored to each trimester, with your starting point dependent on how many weeks along you are. With 20-30 minute workouts that can be done at home using your bodyweight or with small pieces of equipment such as dumbbells and resistance bands, this program is designed to help you move with confidence as you maintain your strength, fitness, posture and general health.

“You might be really fit, but pregnancy is still going to be a new thing and you might want help,” Kayla says. “Every pregnancy is different and everyone’s experience with pregnancy is different so you definitely need to listen to your body and work with your doctor.”

Thinking about giving Pregnancy with Kayla a go? We’ve got a free first-trimester workout for you. You’ll need a yoga mat and set of dumbbells to get started with this full-body session.

If you’re currently pregnant and interested in trying this workout, it’s essential you receive clearance from your healthcare provider before you begin.
