    Default Mother's fitness.

    How to maintain fitness after having a baby? The diet, or any special kind of exercises which can still maintain my body.

    Take time out to exercise regularly and make smart choices while eating. If you breastfeed, you'll burn up to 500 additional calories a day. That helps you lose the baby weight but you'll still need to dedicate time to exercise to get tightened up. It's work since babies keep you up all hours of the night. I suggest you don't worry about it until baby is on a predictable sleep schedule. Enjoy the baby and worry about the fitness in a little while.

    The first step is getting cleared by your physician to exercise again. Finding a trainer in your area who specializes in post natal fitness would be the next step. They will be your best bet to hit the goals you listed. Good luck!

    CrossFit, D1, Iron Tribe, Y Cross. Any version of HIIT. That's what's up these days.

    Ok, are these vitamin supplements? I think only exercises and Gym can help.

    Yes, I think the same. Regular exercise would be the best helper for your MOM.

    Being a personal trainer, I also agree with others comments. First, meet with your doctor to get cleared. Second, gradually ease back into working out. If I met with a woman that just had a baby, I would want to know her prior history of working out. If she never worked out before and she wanted to get lose weight post-pregnancy, my program would be completely different than someone that worked out during pregnancy and wants to continue post-pregnancy. I know this is a couple months old now, but if you need help let me know.
