Get fit while your baby is cared for
Oooh baby, baby! If a fun, outdoor, postnatal fitness program with a nanny service sounds too good to be true, read on. It's not.
Whether you're keen to get your fitness back after having a baby, want to exercise in the great outdoors with like-minded women, just want to be able to work out with your baby or while your baby is looked after, or perhaps a different reason, Rachel Lloyd's Mama's Journeys fitness program might just be for you.
What can you expect?
To enjoy some you time! Fun outdoor workouts led by a certified postnatal trainer
Mama's Journey 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."
Taking a holistic approach to postnatal fitness and partnering with women's health physios to provide optimal support, Mama's 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.
