Just had a baby? Try these fitness tips.

Bouncing back after a baby
By: Cindy Eggemeyer
April 30, 2014

In my 25-plus years working in the fitness business, one thing hasn’t changed much. Many women still have trouble believing it’s OK to make their personal fitness a priority. There’s always something else they feel they should be doing for their family or job.

Sometimes it’s the arrival of a couple’s first baby that sets this way of thinking in stone, and it’s understandable. Mom will be recovering physically for a while, sleep is at a premium, and there are seemingly endless baby-care tasks on the agenda. But taking care of yourself means you’re setting a good example of healthy living and giving your baby the strongest mom possible.

Mary Bielawski, a personal trainer at Edward Health & Fitness Centers, just had her second baby in January. She can speak personally and professionally about the challenges of a new baby.

Read the rest of the story including a list of Cindy's fitness tips for new moms.
