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.

Yule-Holes

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas?

I was listening to the radio on a long car journey yesterday, and they were talking about "yule-holes". It's an old Scottish term for the hole you have to make or move your belt to, after you’ve had too much to eat and drink over the Christmas period. Brilliant!

So if your belt now has a yule-hole, or if you're just feeling a bit sluggish, why not blow off the cobwebs with our Mince Pie Burn-Off tomorrow morning (Wed 28 Dec) in South Park Gardens?

Meet us in the park at 9.30am for an hour of calorie burning, energising fun! Everyone welcome. Bring your friends, family & any other random people who maybe staying with you along. It's just £8.50 a class, and it's easy to book online with Paypal

South Park Gardens is a lovely little park, just 5 minutes walk from the centre of Wimbledon. There's plenty of metered parking on the nearby roads (put SW19 8QT into your sat nav, and you'll find it).
