Maternity Fitness Support – Review of the MomBod FITsplint


by For Two Fitness April 26, 2012



Our CEO had the opportunity to review the MomBod FITsplint, created by fitness expert Celeste Goodson.  Here’s what she thinks:

Like many of you, I enjoy great belly support for a variety of activities.  During my day-to-day, I love a good supportive tank.  During my workouts, I love a great sports-specific support band, and between my last pregnancy and this one (I’m 22 weeks now), I’ve tried a few!  When Celeste offered to send me a MomBod FITsplint, I was excited.  When I tried it on and took it for a test run, I was delighted!  This product is really fabulous.  Here’s why:

1. The MomBod FITsplint is almost invisible under clothes.  Yep, even under the form-fitting For Two Fitness tanks, my summer staple.  It is so light, I forgot I was wearing it, and there was no bulk under my clothes.

2. It is simple!  No crazy contraptions to mess around with, just a super easy, completely adjustable and customizable fit.  You place the wide portion at your back, contract your abs  (as best you can!) and then cross the splint around the front of your belly (over, under, or one of each) and it velcros in place.  Totally smooth, easy to fit, and easy to adjust.

3. It wasn’t hot, didn’t cause any chaffing, and I found it easy to wear during a workout.  No sliding around, no readjusting, no regrets.  I felt great support during my run, even during my faster intervals and hills.

I have no reservations about recommending this great splint for everyday or fitness support.   Also, Celeste has developed the ReCORE program, a specific core strength regimen. If you’re lucky enough to live in Southern California, you can also get personal training from Celeste!  It is well worth a visit to the  MomBod website.

More about Celeste and MomBod Fitness:  Celeste is a Boston Marathon qualifier and understands the desire for women to stay as fit as possible during pregnancy, get their core strength back and return to their exercise of choice injury and symptom free. Celeste Goodson has a B.S. in Fitness and Wellness Management.  In 2005, she became certified through ACE as an Advanced Health and Fitness Specialist, certifying her to personal train Pre/Post Natal women and those with musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and metabolic conditions.  After her 3rd child, Celeste found herself dealing with stress incontinence, prolapse and diastasis recti!  She researched extensively how to best strengthen the stretched out tissue and muscles and within a few months of proper exercises (ReCORE) she was symptom free and still is.  Visit the MomBod Fitness Facebook Page and follow them on Twitter!
