Bio: As owner of her fitness studio Brooklyn Academy Roots in Oakland, CA, Mindy Berla decided to create and produce Pregnant and FIT! once she realized that there was no comprehensive fitness app on the market for pregnant women. After training numerous clients and seeing the benefits of exercise on their pregnancies, she was drawn to filling this gap. Mindy was 3 months pregnant at the taping of the videos in this app.
