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.

Thursday Morning Buggyfit is Evolving

We've heard that some of our Wimbledon Park Buggyfit mums find the Thursday 12 noon finish time a bit tricky. We've also had feedback that a few non-postnatal ladies are interested in joining the class too.

So, from Thursday 27th November, this class will be a Blast Class, suitable for postnatal mums & anyone else who'd like to come along. Babies & children more than welcome to come & play, gurgle, eat & sleep (we don't mind a bit of noise either).

The class will start at 11.00am, meeting in front of the cafe in Wimbledon Park.  You'll have the option to leave either at 11.45am or 12noon, depending on you & your little ones schedule.

Revelstoke Road Car Park - Important Notice


If you're coming to our Wimbledon Park Buggyfit class this week, you won't be able to park in the Revelstoke Road car park due to the preparations for the firework display. Try the top car park on Church Road (near Wimbledon Tennis) or park on the nearby streets. Some roads are free during Buggyfit classes. Others are £1.10 per hour between 11.00am - 3.00pm. A full list can be found on the council website. All back to normal next week.

Don't forget you can also come to our Tuesday class on Wimbledon Common at 10.30am where there is a huge free car park!

Heather's Fit Kit Drills - New September Dates

We've got some new dates available for our very popular Fit Kit Drills sessions with Heather.

These intense workouts combine TRX Suspension Training with the ViPR.

You'll use the TRX (long straps that hang from a tree or post) to add an extra challenge to your regular bodyweight exercises. Develop your strength, power & core stability whilst having a bit of suspended fun!

Take on the ViPR (not so humble weighted rubber tubes) & you'll be performing big dynamic movements that build core strength, sculpt the arms, legs & bum whilst burning a huge amount of calories.

Heather's sessions use both pieces of kit to create a unique all over body challenge. Limited to a small group, you’ll receive highly personalized attention & get maximum results for your time & effort.

Give us your drive & determination. We’ll give you sweat & smiles!

Where & When:

Tue 16 Sep - 6.15am to 7.00am - Wimbledon Park
Tue 23 Sep - 6.15am to 7.00am - South Park Gardens
Thu 2 Oct - 6.15am to 7.00am - Wimbledon Park (note this is Thu not Tue)

Cost: £8.50 per class

As numbers are difficult for us to predict, we're asking everyone to pre-book each session in advance. Sorry, we won't be able to take payments on the day & class passes won't be valid. These sessions are non-transferable & non-refundable.

Book now or get in touch to find out more.

Early Morning Sessions Are Changing Slightly

We've had a lot of requests for our early sessions to finish at 7am.  We suggested a 45 minute intense session, but have heard some of our hardcore clients would like the full hour. As no-one is keen to start at 6am, we’ve come up with a good solution.

We’ll start on the dot at 6.15am, with a warm-up & intense express session that will finish at 7.00am. Following this, there will be a 15 minute challenging strength & core session.  This gives you the option of a 45 minute or 60 minute class.

This new format applies to all of our 6.15am sessions in Wimbledon Park & South Park Gardens, & will start next week.

We’ve got some challenging new workouts planned to wake you up & have you glowing all day!
