Research shows that prenatal exercise programs are extremely effective in addressing particular body needs of the mom-to-be.  Fit For Two helps prepare you for one of the biggest physical challenges in a woman's life.  Instructed by a registered nurse and a trained staff with clinical training in maternity fitness and exercise instruction, our program offers overall physical conditioning including low impact aerobic and strengthening exercise, water fitness classes and yoga specially geared to help you prepare for childbirth.  Just as important, this program provides fun, social interaction and support for participants.  Sponsored in part by the ETMC Family Birthplace, Fit for Two is open to all mothers-to-be who are at least six weeks pregnant.
