NetWalking On Wimbledon Common

NetWalking

Have time to talk business whilst getting fit. We’ll walk across Wimbledon Common with the occasional stop for a spot of strength training. You can chat to other business people or fire questions at me about exercise & fitness. There will be no set agenda. Just informal networking, fitness & fun.

When: Thursday 23 March, 9.15 to 10.30am

Where: Meet and finish at the Windmill café. Great if you want to catch up for a coffee before or after the session. There’s a free carpark & toilets. Full directions & details about the meeting point here.

Anything else: In this weather, you probably won’t need to carry water with you, but having either a drink in your car or money for the café afterwards would be a good idea.

Thinking about a Guiness?!

Happy St Patrick's Day!

It's St Patrick's Day today, and that can only mean one thing. Guinness tonight and it's Mother's Day next weekend!

Is Guinness really good for you? Well, a few years ago I wrote this little article about how much iron it contains and how far you have to run to burn-off the calories in one pint. Read it and you might thing twice about having some of the black stuff!

On to Mother's Day. I think we can all agree that a healthy mum is a happy mum. And everyone in the house benefits if mum is in a good mood. So why not buy her one of our Gift Vouchers for Mother's Day? Or book that amazing woman in your life onto one of our BootCamps or courses (see below).

If you have a new baby in your house (or you know someone that does) we're celebrating Mother's Day by offering Free Trials at all of our Wimbledon Buggyfit classes throughout March. Head over to our blog for all the details.

A Good Read For All Our New Mums At Wimbledon Buggyfit

I've just read this great blog article about returning to exercise after a cesarean. It's a good read for all our c section mums, but is also useful for any of our Buggyfit mum's getting back into exercise: Returning To Exercise After A C-Section.

Pregnancy and birth, especially a c-section, and all that twisting and carrying with a baby once it's been born, all take a huge toll on your body and it's important to get back into exercise in a safe and measured way with experts to guide you (even if you think you feel 100% and are desperate to lose your baby weight!!) You are postnatal for a full year after giving birth - this takes into account how long it takes the body to return to a 'normal' state.

With 11 years experience in Wimbledon, we run our Buggyfit classes using 'safe' exercises for our new mum's and offer some advanced/challenging variations for our more experienced Buggyfitters who have exercised with us over a number of months and are ready to pick up the pace a little to see ongoing progress.

We spend a long time planning our sessions so that we can help our post natal ladies rebalance their posture and regain their core strength, lose weight and get fitter - all wile having fun!!

We are experienced in helping ladies with specific post natal issues - diastasis recti, sore joints thanks to relaxin, weak pelvic floor, sleep deprivation to name a few.

We also have some great women's physiotherapists we recommend to any of our ladies who we think may need a little more intensive care to get back to normal and we make sure we help incorporate any physio into our Buggyfit sessions where appropriate.

Please always feel free to ask any of us questions about your post natal body and exercise, we love to help!

We run 5 Buggyfit classes a week across SW19 and SW18 including Wimbledon Common, Wimbledon Park and South Park Gardens. Check out our timetable for all the details. We have a very flexible class pass system. No contract, no sign-up fee and no commitment. You can drop-in or buy one of our class passes to save a bit of money. Head over to our payment page for all the details.

Exercise your Eggs Off In Wimbledon!

Yes, we're thinking about Easter all ready and we'll no doubt have you hopping around the park like a bunny at some point.

But before I get into that, it's Mother's Day in a couple of weeks time, and if you need (or would like to drop hints for) a fantastic gift, why not go for one of our Gift Vouchers? Or book that amazing woman in your life onto one of our BootCamps or courses (see below). It'll last longer than flowers and is better for the waistline than chocolates!

On that note, if you'd like to burn-off any chocolaty indulgences in advance, we're running a special class on Good Friday (14 April) at 9.30am in South Park Gardens which will replace our regular Fit In The Park session. It's suitable for all levels and abilities and we'd love to see your husbands, wives, partners, family & friends there too. Children can come & play nearby & babies in buggies are welcome (they all remain your responsibility!).

It's a busy time of year for everyone, so we'd like to know how many people will be joining us. We’re therefore asking everyone to book & pay in advance (your class passes won't be valid). It's just £8 for 1 person or £14 for 2. Hop over to our BootCamp page to sign-up now while you're still thinking about it.

I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that our Saturday classes in Wimbledon Park and in South Park Gardens will all be running as normal over the Easter period. Unfortunately there will be no Buggyfit classes on Bank Monday, however we'd love to see you all with or without your little ones on Good Friday and Easter Saturday!

As always, you're welcome to drop-in on any of our Buggyfit or Fit In The Park classes (check out our busy timetable online), but it does work out cheaper to buy one of our class passes in advance.

Happy Training,

Heather & the HA team x
