Woman Lifts Weights Two Days Before Giving Birth

This mother-to-be was not one to lounge in front of the TV during her pregnancy.

Gym devotee Meghan Leatherman was still lifting weights the same day she went into labor.

The 33-year-old refused to pause her intense exercise program, continuing to walk her dog three miles every day, visiting the gym four times a week and walking four miles in the mountains once a week.

Ms. Leatherman is a devotee of a particularly tough fitness regimen, CrossFit, which has a heavy emphasis on weight lifting and intensive interval training.

This CrossFit disciple has claimed that exercising so regularly and test-drive has actually made her nine-month pregnancy easier for both her and her firstborn.

Mrs. Leatherman plans to return to the gym three weeks after giving birth to her daughter.
