In brief: Yes
It is not only ok to work out while breastfeeding it is healthy and beneficial to you and baby.
The most important thing is to make sure you stay hydrated and drink extra water during your exercise sessions. Timing your exercise to after a feeding or pumping session will make the working out much more comfortable. Also, make sure you have a supportive sports bra.
