As a former U.S. Marine, Erin Oprea is dedicated to fitness. Now a Nashville-based personal trainer with clients like Carrie Underwood, she uses her expertise to help those with busy lives stay fit. Visit her site Oprea Personal Fitness or follow her on Twitter @OpreaFitness. Then come back to PEOPLE.com every Monday to master a new workout move.

Quite a few of my clients and friends have asked about training before, during and after pregnancy. I always tell them that what you did before being pregnant, you can do after as long as your doctor has approved you for exercise!

This is why I wanted to bring you this great video full of pregnancy safe moves that you don’t normally see. They are fun and different and can be done whether you are pregnant or not.

Planning on having a child? Get going on these moves now!
A child on the way? Check with your doc, then get your workout on!
Just had your child? Do these with your husband while watching the little guy wiggle!

Remember, working out is not just about looks but maintaining your health. Make your body feel great by continuing to move through your pregnancy. It will give you more energy, make the delivery easier and keep your workout rhythm going for when you are able to grab some good “me” time in the living room doing workouts while your beautiful baby naps!
