The article discusses the features of using modern fitness technologies with women during pregnancy in the second trimester. Materials and methods: total of 20 women of various ages (from 21 to 34 years old), who were at different stages of pregnancy, most of whom (70%) were in the second trimester of pregnancy, took part in the study. No medical contraindications were found in any of them. Results: according to the results of the questionnaire, it was established that most women, namely 80%, kept in shape through fitness. Also most women choose "calm" types of fitness: pilates (45%), yoga (30%) and "light" cardio (40%), and only 10% preferred strength training. Video recordings of the most popular curling fitness programs during pregnancy, particularly during the second trimester, were also analyzed. Conclusions: based on the results of the analysis, it was established that all four groups of fitness programs, including pilates, yoga, exercises in the water and stretching, can be effective for pregnant women in the second trimester, provided that the programs are designed taking into account the specifics of this period. In addition, given the variety of these programs, pregnant women can choose the one that best suits their needs and physical capabilities. Features of the use of equipment in fitness classes with pregnant women in comparison with women who are not pregnant are as follows: a) exercises are performed at a slower pace, without sudden movements and increased intensity; b) during exercises it is necessary to avoid positions that can lead to overstrain of the muscles of the abdomen and thighs, as well as to the danger of a fall (loss of balance) of a pregnant woman.
