Pregnant Crossfitter Still Doing Workouts Near Due Date

by Adam Smith

Meghan Umphres Leatherman shows she can still lift 215lb weights — despite being nine months pregnant. The mum-to-be was just two days away from her due date and 1cm dilated, but that didn’t stop her grueling CrossFit fitness regime — which combines weightlifting, gymnastics and cardio activities. The 33-year-old even lifted weights on the day she went into labour and broke records in the final days of pregnancy.

As well as going to the gym four times a week, Meghan, from Arizona, America, continued to walk her dog for three miles a day and go on a four-mile hike through the mountains every week. But far from doing herself or her first baby damage, Meghan, a marketing and communications consultant, insists they’re both healthier for it and her pregnancy was actually easier. Now she is settling in to life as a mum after giving birth to 6 lb, 11 oz daughter, Florence Germaine, on May 3. But she expects to be back at the gym again in just three weeks.
