One of our Members brought up a great question!  What abdominal exercises can she be doing while she is progressing through the Mommy Ready Program?

One of the Mommy Ready Membership benefits is having a personal coach.  Someone to listen, guide and direct you through the program to suit your specific needs and concerns. Someone who will help you reach your goals!  And, lets be honest, someone who will push you to do things out of your comfort zone.
