If you take 305 in NYC, chances are you've met our mama-to-be instructor Jess.

We sat down with this hot mom-in-the-making to get the goss on what to expect when you're expecting at 305.

 


Girl. 7 months pregnant and still teaching cardio. Wtf?! What's been the hardest part?

Real talk: the only obstacle was I got sick a few times and had to find a sub. When you're pregnant, you're basically sharing your immune system. Overall though, I feel way better than I imagined. 

When you’re pregnant, you’re basically sharing your immune system.

And now you're 2/3 of the way there! Any advice for soon-to-be moms? 

Keep working out! I was exhausted in my first trimester. That's when you're officially growing a human like the baby's arms, legs and pancreas. Plus, the hormones made me feel nauseated.

I'm such an advocate for working out while pregnant because I felt so much better on the days when I worked out. 

My first trimester was the hardest. That’s when you’re officially growing a human.

 

 

So working out helped you combat stress and beat nausea. Were you able to still go H.A.M. in class? 

I still broke a sweat in my classes. But I felt more tired almost instantly and I had to learn how to take it easy. 

If you're pregnant and working out, give yourself some credit! 

Remember you are growing a human, so it's ok to feel tired some days and take a day off from your workout. 


Look, ma! No hands! Jess balances a post-class smoothie on her belly.

I’m looking forward to bonding. I’m having a girl so I can’t wait for some girl time together.

What are you looking forward to the most about being a mother?

I'm looking forward to having someone else to take care of besides myself. I'm going to birth this human who is counting on me and relying on me for everything.

Also, I'm excited to just bond with this baby! I'm having a girl so I can't wait for girl time. #GIRLPOWER

Do you think your daughter will become a dancer?

Every time I go to the doctor's office, the doctor says, "Woah your baby is super active. What are you doing?!" 

I think it's 305  -- the moving around  and the music she's hearing. Hopefully she'll be a natural when she comes out. 

I'm definitely not going to be a stage mom.

I'm going to put her in dance classes as soon as she can walk, to see if she likes it. Whether she wants to dance or play soccer, I want her to go for it.

I’m definitely not going to be a stage mom.

HOT MAMAS GET THAT ((305))!

Moms, cmon now! It's time to get that ((305)), babe.

We all deserve some time for self-care. Remember (!!) exercise produces endorphins. And endorphins make you happy. And happy people don’t kill their partners in their sleep. Hi!
