I wanted to check in with you guys and let you know how much I am loving training with the Mountain Athletics App.
Being almost 7 months pregnant, Im feeling the effects of summer on my running. Its hot outside and I’m feeling more and more tightness across my abdomen when I run. So my cardio has been a mix of light jogging and power walking.
Except for this one little race … which I placed 2nd in the stroller division. Maybe my purple North Face shorts were the lucky charm?! Or maybe it was the strength I’ve built up by using the app?! Who knows but I’ll take it.
I have been trying to keep up with strength … because I know that as long as I keep my strength and fitness level up I will (hopefully) have an easy bounce back post birth.
The issue there is coming up with the strength routines. Thankfully, The Mountain Athletics App has been an easy go to for a great mix of cardio – plyometrics and short distance running – and strength – think AMRAP-style workouts- and rest. The best part being the form cue videos which guide you through an exercise If you aren’t sure how to do a move.

The programs on the app are 6 weeks long, but you can skip workouts if need be. For instance:
As much fun as this workout sounds, I can’t do 2 of the 4 exercises during pregnancy so unfortunately I skipped it and moved onto something I can complete.
I really believe in the accessibility that The North Face is giving fitness. Being a busy mom, I need things that I can do and start on my own time and that don’t cost an arm and a leg. With this app you can work out at any time and The North Face has some really great events every two weeks, which are totally free. I give The North Face 2 thumbs up for supporting the goals of all different types of athletes.
