Do it for Your Baby
"A recent study published from Norway by Obstetrics and Gynecology has shown a direct relationship between exercising during pregnancy and prevention of excessive weight gain in newborns. Reduction of birth weight by regular exercise can be as great as 23–28%!"
Not to be positive or anything: "There is an increasing trend worldwide towards heavier birth weights. Birth weight is an important predictor of morbidity, infant survival, later childhood size, heart disease and diabetes in later life." If you are not pregnant...... you can still exercise.... it's baby safe!
