"I attended prenatal exercise classes from several providers. The Fit4Two instructors were the only ones who consistently asked participants about any injuries and offered suggestions to modify exercises to accommodate them.
Avoiding injury is important for maintaining an active pregnancy. Well done, Fit4Two!"
