Jennifer Johnson and the Baby Strong Workout

When personal trainer Jennifer Johnson gave birth to her son Cole, she had to find a way to stay active while giving her baby the attention he needed.

They both loved the daily workouts and time together and Jennifer got in great post-pregnancy shape. Her experience inspired her to create Baby Strong Workout, a set of cards featuring innovative, fun and effective “mommy & me” exercises and customizable workouts. Jennifer has just launched Baby Strong on Kickstarter to help more moms get active and feel good post-pregnancy!
