Workouts for Pregnancy, Older Adults, and Beginners

“The latest Workouts for Pregnancy, which include 10 workouts in Strength, Core, and Mindful Cooldown, are designed to help women remain active during a healthy pregnancy and prepare for life with a new baby. Every workout is a quick 10 minutes designed to accommodate any stage of pregnancy and any fitness level and includes tips for changing workouts using a pillow for comfort as the body changes, led by Fitness+ trainer and mom-to-be Betina Gozo, who is joined by trainers and new moms Emily Fayette and Anja Garcia. These workouts can be performed on their own or combined with Fitness+ weekly studio workouts by modifying them as seen in the series.”

“Workouts for Older Adults focus on strength, endurance, balance, coordination, and mobility to help users remain healthy at any age. This eight-workout collection, led by Fitness+ trainer Molly Fox, includes Gregg Cook for Power, Dustin Brown for Yoga, Bakari Williams for HIIT, and Jhon Gonzalez for Dance. Many of the exercises can be performed with only a light dumbbell or your own body weight, while others can be modified with a chair or against a wall. The workouts are all ten minutes long and can be performed alone or in conjunction with other Fitness+ workouts, with the changes learned in this program being used as required.”

“New Yoga, Strength, and HIIT workouts will be available in Workouts for Beginners to help more Fitness+ members get started and build motivation before trying the weekly studio workouts. There are now many more exercises to choose from to help develop strength, endurance, and versatility for those who are just getting started, consider themselves beginners or are getting back into exercise after a long break. All of the movements are low-impact and simple to execute, allowing beginners to feel at ease while doing basic exercises.”

More Trainers and Workouts

“Yoga and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) are two of the most common Fitness+ workouts, and new coaches are joining both teams.

Jonelle has been studying yoga for over 15 years and has spent the last seven years teaching, mentoring, and educating other yoga instructors. Her upbeat teaching style and easy-to-follow flows would cater to both new and experienced yoga practitioners. She creates a playful and enjoyable vibe with her love of hip-hop and R&B beats, allowing people to be themselves and explore.”
