More about Rae

Rae is the owner of Ladies Who Lift here in Chicago and an overall badass chick; we used to train together a few years back, so I knew she was the perfect person to reach out to in regards to exercise during pregnancy. Not only is Rae a certified personal trainer but she’s also certified in pre- and post-natal training.

You asked, Rae answered:

  1. How much is too much when it comes to exercising while pregnant?
  2. How do you prevent diastasis recti?
  3. What core exercises are safe during pregnancy?
  4. Can you speak to the intensity of workouts during pregnancy?

A final reminder to always listen to your body:

The biggest takeaway from these videos and resources is to listen to your body and do what feels the best for you! What works for me may not be the best for you, so when in doubt be sure to consult your personal doctor and/or trainer before performing any of these exercises.
