What happens in a postnatal fitness class?

1 hour circuit class to help mums safely get back into fitness. 

We use resistance bands, bodyweight exercises, lightweight dumbbells to help you regain your fitness. Every exercise can be modified to suit all postnatal recoveries or health concerns. 

Babies are welcome in class as it will be set up in a stay and play type session. There will be baby gyms and other age appropriate toys available to help keep your little one entertained whilst you workout around them.

You will end the session with gentle stretches and some focused time on core strength and pelvic floor recovery.

Connect with your little one

Your baby will love the sensory experience of coming to class! The music, the new faces and socialising with other babies. As they grow older, they can explore the toys with their new friends and they will love watching you workout. They like to get involved too!  

 

You will both enjoy the time spent together and will make some really lovely memories. 

Community

Coffee and play time after the session allows for a catch up with the other mums. Let baby feed or sleep whilst you enjoy a hot drink and a biscuit or two.
