Kelly Rowland is having no trouble finding her motivation to stay fit during her pregnancy.

“Her number one concern is just to be healthy for her baby,” her trainer, Jeanette Jenkins, told PEOPLE at a party celebrating the 100th birthday of American icon Jack LaLanne in Los Angeles on Thursday. “She’s going to be the most incredible mom.”

Jenkins says the mother-to-be has been maintaining a regular workout schedule.

“We work out Monday through Friday, but we just keep it at a moderate level,” says Jenkins. “We stay within her doctor’s guidelines and work out anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour so it’s not anything exorbitant.”

She adds, “We do cardio, we do yoga and we do light weight training.”

Plus Rowland, 33, has been incorporating meditation as part of her prenatal routine (which the singer shared a belly-baring photo of herself enjoying on her Facebook page).

When it comes time for Rowland to welcome her new little bundle with husband Tim Weatherspoon, Jenkins has no doubt that the former X-Factor judge will be able to bounce back to her pre-baby body quickly.

“We’ll make sure she gets those sexy abs back as soon as the baby comes out!” jokes Jenkins.

It’s an interview with Kelly’s trainer Jeanette Jenkins. Why don’t you read before posting idiotic comments?

Kelly is approaching her pregnancy with the right attitude and she looks GREAT! Healthy mama equals healthy baby. At least she will be all belly and won’t have 60 lbs of baby fat to lose all over like women that choose to inhale food like a garbage disposal when they are with child. Eating for 2 is a myth all you need is an extra 350 calories a day not extra meals! I’m 8 months pregnant and have only gained 17 lbs and I’m all belly my legs & arms are toned from working out. Jeanette Jenkins is a wonderful trainer….and Queen Latifah’s domestic partner…I wish they would come out already they have been together forever.
