Hunt says 100 women take her prenatal fitness classes weekly. At seven classes a week, this is a major jump from just one class a week when she began her business in 2009. Fellow instructor Leslie Adrian talks about being inspired to certify as a teacher thanks to a much more positive second birth, after she had exercised regularly during pregnancy.
There are lots of options for where to take prenatal fitness around town – see my list here.
