Loved wearing my hot pink Body Pop Active fitness tank in this workout! Love the back!! The tank was great to workout in. I felt very girly 😉 and comfortable. My skin (eczema) did not seemed bothered  by it, which is huge!

These are so the kind of workouts I need right now so thank you! Have you any workouts you can perform with your baby in a wrap? I know movement is restricted but I’m struggling to work out as my little guy will not settle for 5 minutes unless he’s on my body somehow!

purelytwins November 14, 2014 - 9:25 am

We do not have one yet with using the baby wrap. Squats and lunges would be your best thing to do when wearing him 🙂
