Controversial GC fitness guru gives birth to healthy twin girls

Sophie Guidolin’s intense pregnancy workouts sparked controversy online, with many claiming she was endangering her unborn twin girls.

The 26-year-old was heavily criticised after she posted a picture on social media lifting weights while 26 weeks pregnant.

Alot of people express concern over women exercising in pregnancy and I 110% understand why. There are so many myths, old wives tales & opinions out there it is hard to understand what is the truth and what is made up. In my opinion, listen to noone except your qualified & trusted medical staff. This week is my 26Th week of pregnancy with twins. Each pregnancy is different & exercises that I or anyone else may be doing may not be safe for your body to perform. I have studied my pre/post natal certificate for fitness and still believe it comes down to each individuals fitness, pregnancy and circumstances. I might admit, I am VERY lucky that my husband has 10+ years experience in the industry as a qualified dietician & trainer so it certainly helps for me ? for the FIRST TIME EVER we are joining our education, qualifications & experience to bring you a second to none program for MALES & FEMALES tailored to your individual fitness levels & ability!▶️✅ @thebod_ ✔ ✔️✔️✔️✔️#12weeksleft #twinpregnancy
