Salem, MA, June 28, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The owners of B&S Fitness Companies (http://www.bnsfitness.com/)—the North Shore of Boston's largest provider of fitness programs, have released a brand new book: "The Pregnant Athlete: How to Stay in Your Best Shape Ever--Before, During, and After Pregnancy." The book is the first of its kind. In "The Pregnant Athlete," triathlete/trainer/coach/mom Brandi Dion, fitness professional and Salem State University Professor Steven Dion, and OB/GYN Dr. Joel Heller have teamed up to offer practical information on: flexible workout plans for strength, cardiovascular conditioning, agility, and balance for each stage of pregnancy and the postpartum period; facts and tips about eating well to support pregnancy and fuel workouts; and the truth about old wives' tales and common pregnancy myths and misconceptions.
This book has been featured on Good Morning America (GMA); the Marilu Henner Show, the Dr. Alvin Jones Show, Dr. Radio, and Super Human Radio—all nationally syndicated programs.
Brandi Dion, co-author, stated: "As a top athlete, I received lots of conflicting information on the level of activity I could safely endure during my two pregnancies. Most fitness advice limited me to walking or doing prenatal yoga, but I am a triathlete and did not want to greatly reduce my exercise regimen. However, I found it difficult to get accurate information about what activities that I could safely do. So, I did my own research, and while pregnant, competed in road races and triathlons and delivered two healthy babies. I was inspired to help others do the same. So, along with Dr. Heller and my husband, Dr. Steven Dion, I wrote this book to help other pregnant athletes to educate them and inform them that they, too, can safely train and compete while pregnant."
