Emily Breeze from Charlotte, North Carolina is just shy of 9 months pregnant. With her baby boy due on April 29th, many might advise her to take a break.

But the CrossFit-competing, Olympic-lifting 31-year-old said other than modifying her exercises and scaling back on her weights, she has no plans of stopping.

"I have been training my whole life," Breeze told InsideEdition.com. "I want to truly promote health and fitness to everybody out there."

The trainer can be seen in various Instagram videos skipping rope and doing push ups. She even does an astonishing 170-pound overhead squat at 27 weeks pregnant.

Sun|daze are one of my favorites! I always try to stretch and get in some yoga, mobility, or a @romwod --of course all 3 of my boys want to join and don't allow me to relax as much as I need to. This week has had a lot of ups and downs and I have been dealing with a horrific sciatic nerve/ booty issue. I mean at times I think I have cried more than smiled. I have taken more off days at the gym and I can tell baby boy is ready to make his debut! #athletemommy #babyboy #birthfit #cltfitness #charlotte #romwod #dowhatyoulove #earnyourbody #enjoyingmydayoff #fitpregnancy #goaldigger #healthymomhealthybaby #my3sons #mastiff #mammasboy #noexcuses #pregnantlife #sunday #yogaeverydamnday #37weekspregnant #thirdtrimester #thatbellytho #quadstretch #heropose #swoleandflexy

Week 3 @crossfitgames at 33 weeks pregnant with my GROWING baby boy.. It isn't worth the risk so I took a score of ten and did one round of 55lb snatches but no muscle ups aka no more rounds... But had to get that sweat in so me and lil' dude did 9 more rounds of 10 snatches with a 200 m run in between. It was beautiful outside in Charlotte so I'm satisfied with an exercise and a tan! πŸ˜¬πŸ‘ΆπŸΎπŸ˜‰πŸ’πŸ½ #athletemommy #babyboy #babybump #bunintheoven #crossfit #crossfitgames #clt #cltfitness #charlotte #riseup #risingnation #fitpregnancy #getfitcharlotte #healthiswealth #noexcuses #pregnantlife #pregnantbelly #33weekspregnant #snatches #oly #girlswholift #intheopen #crossfitopen

She continues to lift with the blessing of her doctor, but listens to her body, and adapts her movements accordingly.

For example, Breeze told IE.com that her heaviest clean and jerk is 195-200 pounds, but she has scaled that down significantly to accommodate her pregnancy.

"A healthy mom and healthy pregnancy will help create that healthy baby," Breeze said. "There's no prescription to pregnancy. Everybody might be different."

It seems the CrossFit trainer is only gaining momentum from her pregnancy.

Less than a month after she is due to give birth to her first son, Breeze said she and former NFL player Randy Moss have teamed up to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for biggest bootcamp event.

The previous record breaking boot camp had 2,300 attendees and was held in Australia, but she and Moss hope to have at least 3,000 involved in their boot camp.
