Prenatal Pilates Infused Fitness and Prenatal Core Pilates Videos
Help Mamma’s-To-Be Expect Their Pre-Baby Body Back

Newport Beach, CA (January 17, 2012) — Erica Ziel, Master Pilates Instructor and Core Specialist, announces the release of her signature prenatal Pilates workout series, Knocked-Up Fitness: Prenatal Pilates Infused Fitness and Knocked-Up Fitness: Prenatal Core Pilates. Created exclusively for expecting moms who want to maintain their fitness routine while preparing their bodies for labor, delivery and recovery, the videos address the warm-up, core, and total body conditioning needs specific to pregnant women.

“Knocked-Up Fitness is my solution to the physical and motivational fitness challenges moms-to-be face from the first trimester through postnatal healing,” says Ziel. “Through the Knocked-Up Fitness videos and my signature Pilates programs, women at all stages of pregnancy will learn the moves that help make labor easier and get the body to quickly bounce back to its pre-baby shape– and as a mother of two with a third on the way, I am living proof they work!”

As one of Newport Beach, California’s most coveted private fitness instructors, Ziel is renowned for her unique method of Pilates infused with Yoga and Cardio movements. Her Knocked-Up Fitness: Prenatal Pilates Infused Fitness and Knocked-Up Fitness: Prenatal Core Pilates videos feature at-home programs developed to engage, strengthen, lengthen and tone the core, upper and lower body muscles, while also improving posture, flexibility and metabolism. Movements are not only designed for total body sculpting and conditioning, they also safely target the deep, hard-to-get-to muscles that support the belly, back and pelvic areas, which need special attention during pregnancy.

The interval routines from each video can be mixed, matched and modified to keep workouts exciting and motivating, while achieving the same fitness results. Active moms and moms-to-be will also appreciate the time-saving and cost-effective convenience of this at-home program, as well as the option to customize workouts during travel.
