FitBump T3 is targeted trimester training that features exercises designed specifically for pregnancy. Designed by FitBump founder Kira Kohrherr (AFAA certified personal trainer, ACE pre/postnatal certified) and editor in chief Ingrid Skjong (AAPT certified personal trainer, ACE pre/postnatal certified), T3 works for all fitness levels—throughout all three trimesters—by combining strengthening and stretching with cardio and interval training to help get moms-to-be in labor-ready shape and to help shorten post-baby recovery time.

B.Y.O.B.—Bring Your Own Baby (or Bring Your Own Bump)—is a group fitness class suitable for pregnant women, as well as new mothers and their babies. Created by Melissa Paris (NASM certified personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist, pre/postnatal training, TRX) and Anja Pierre (NASM certified personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist, pre/postnatal training, TRX, KBC), this form of exercising provides a bonding element between mom and baby, while the new bundle of joy acts as a human weight vest, increasing the intensity of the workout.

Inspiration meets perspiration when training with Mahri Relin (NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist; AFPA Pre/Postnatal Exercise Specialist).

Wellness analyst and yoga instructor Lana Masor offers prenatal yoga training to increase flexibility, strength, circulation and balance.
