Fitness model Chontel Duncan trains during full term pregnancy
By the time they reach full term pregnancy, most women feel tired, sore, and somewhat ready to give birth.
Not Chontel Duncan. The 28-year-old fitness model and personal trainer from Brisbane continues to train until the birth of her second child.
Late last week, she posted a video of her grueling diet less than a week before giving birth.

“At the latest we have less than a week until the baby is here,” Chontel captioned the clip – which shows her lifting, squeezing and even rowing on the rower.

âThe baby is completely posterior. Has a head larger than JÃ©rÃ©mie at birth, measures more than Jeremiah overall, âshe continued.
“And at the date yesterday, I saw that I still had plenty of room for the baby to grow a lot.”
“How big do you all think baby will be?” Jeremiah weighed 7 pounds and 13 ounces, and this baby in our last measurement scan (two weeks ago) already weighed over seven pounds.
In recent videos while pregnant, Chontel can be seen rowing, lifting, crouching and stretching (pictured)
It’s also not the first time the fitness enthusiast has continued to train until birth – when she had her first baby, she did the same (photo before pregnancy)
In the video, Chontel can be seen leading a HIIT session with her trainer – who sees her working both her upper and lower body before giving birth.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Chontel said: ‘Everything I do is supervised and approved by my obstetrician; it is tiny compared to what my body is used to’.
This is also not the first time that the fitness enthusiast continues to train until birth.
When she had Jeremiah last year, Chontel also shared clips of herself training until about two weeks before giving birth.
This time around, PT fans were quick to compliment her online, writing comments like, “This is the next level.”
Others posted things like “pregnancy goals” (pregnant photo)
