Mamas Journeys First Steps Fitness Program is part of the Safe Return to Exercise accredited training course. Its philosophy is:"It's not about restricting what movement a mother can do; it's about ensuring we know exactly what is happening inside and out with each woman we work with, and tailoring our exercise programs to re-build her from the inside out often to the point where she is stronger and fitter than she has ever been."

Beyond fitness
Taking a holistic approach to postnatal fitness and partnering with women's health physios to provide optimal support, Mamas Journeys program helps women:

Learn how to prioritise time for themselves
Understand what they can and cannot do, and build an individual program based on their progress
Be well informed about exercising safely and effectively
Regain their fitness and confidence
Feel supported physically and emotionally
Build networks feel connected not isolated

Who can attend?
The classes are suitable for mums from six weeks post-birth (with doctor's clearance) and non-mums.

What kind of exercise is it?
The exercises include a combination of cardio and functional strength training, ensuring the exercises are safe and gentle on the pelvic floor while restoring core strength and postural alignment.
