We received this lovely message last week from one of our mums:
"I can’t say how important these Buggyfit sessions were when on mat leave with my two boys. They made me get up and out, get fit and feel motivated. Always followed by a coffee and a cathartic mum-moan, they became one of highlights of my week. The friends I met there are still friends and I have even kept up with the lovely trainers for personal training sessions. Book in or turn up, you won’t be disappointed 👍. They will be there rain or shine!"
If you're a new mum and would like to try out a class for free, meet us here every Monday and Thursday:
All levels and abilities will be made very welcome!
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!
