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.

Who: All levels welcome.  This is a very inclusive & friendly group.  We warmly welcome & support anyone who may feel slightly intimidated or scared about joining an exercise class.  This isn’t bootcamp!

Why: You’ll come away feeling healthy, inspired & energised!

How much: Just £5 which will be donated to the Momentum Charity

What to wear on your feet: Trainers or walking boots. Wellies will be OK if you’re used to walking in them.

What to wear on your legs: Tracksuit bottoms, walking trousers, running tights, leggings etc.

What to wear on your top: Ideally a sports bra (for ladies) underneath a couple of tops. It’s good to have a few layers so that you can take things off as you warm up. A waterproof jacket or coat will be good too.

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.

Sign up: Just drop us a line to book your place. Then bring a fiver along on the day!

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.

The best thing is, you can bring your baby along with you to enjoy the fresh air and natural surroundings. It’s also a great way to make new friends too!

We’re running FREE TRIAL sessions throughout March. Once you’ve tried us out, you can then either join us on a drop-in basis or purchase one of our class passes (from £6.50 a class), offering you complete flexibility with no joining fee or commitment.

We run classes on Wimbledon Common, South Park Gardens & in Wimbledon Park. Which one will you do?

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

Price Increase Coming Up - Get In Quick!

Get Fit

Just to let you know, our drop-in rate for Buggyfit & Fit In The Park is going up to £10 on Friday (it's currently at £9). Basically, having a round number will make things a lot quicker at the beginning of the classes, as we won't have to keep handing out £1 coins in change!

Our 20 class pass will also be going up from £125 to £130. We feel that at £6.50 a class, this is still excellent value for money.

The 10 class passes will stay at the same price of £75, so it's worth buying one if you're currently doing a lot of drop-ins.

Our class passes can be used at any of our Buggyfit or Fit In The Park classes in South Park Gardens, Wimbledon Park & on Wimbledon Common. Check out our timetable so see which classes will suit you best.

The class prices will go up at midday this Friday (after Buggyfit on Wimbledon Common).

If you'd like to save a bit of cash, you can purchase either a drop-in or class pass online before the prices go up. Any passes bought online at the current price, maybe redeemed throughout February. We're allowing one pass (at the current price) to be bought per person. So get online & save some money today!

RESOLUTION SOLUTION!

You can do it fitness

Many of us make fitness resolutions at the beginning of the year, but find that by the end of January the initial enthusiasm and passion begins to fade.

If this sounds like you, it's time to do something different. Get a fresh approach.

It's common to start the year full of ambition. Only to find that that life just gets in the way, and you feel like you're falling off the wagon. To make your resolutions last, the changes you make have to comfortably fit within your current lifestyle. What do you need to do to get results without too much upheaval?

You also need to honestly accept your current health and fitness levels. Do a sanity check on what actually needs fixing. Then, look positively at all of the things you can change, rather than negatively lingering over the problems you can't resolve.

Make a realistic plan that’s sustainable and achievable. Get some advice from friends or professionals to get you on the right track and stay motivated.

Why not sign-up for an HA fitness class pass or some personal training sessions to keep you motivated? We've also got some great BootCamps coming up! All the links for more info are below, or drop me a line.

Remember, if you change nothing, nothing will change.
