Mum and Baby Cardio Tone BootCamp

Our trained jazz dancer and fitness instructor, Laura, is back with a new course for Spring 2019! We’re delighted to offer our first specialised indoor post-natal workout for both Mum and baby, allowing mums to exercise to music whilst also giving baby a sensory and fun adventure at the same time!

Join us for…

  • Resistance work using bands and mat-based body weight exercises to strengthen muscles and address postural imbalance

  • Core work to strengthen deep abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor

  • Low impact, high intensity cardio intervals to encourage sustainable weight loss

  • Gentle stretching to ease muscle tightness

Babies can join mum and/or play on the mat nearby.

You will need to bring your own mat. Please feel free to bring a bouncy chair, bumbo or similar along with some toys and a towel or muslin for baby to lie on. Please note your baby remains your responsibility throughout the session.

Who is the course suitable for?

The course will be suitable for babies up to one year/walking. Once they’ve worked out what their legs are capable of, they may be keener to run at our Fit In The Park (FITP) – Family classes and join in the action there!

What are the benefits?

  • Low intensity exercise will help you feel less tired.

  • Exercising boosts your energy levels and releases wonderful feel-good endorphins.

  • You are able to get fit and entertain baby at the same time!

  • A small group setting - with space for just 8 clients (and their babies) there will be the opportunity to discuss post-natal fitness with Laura and set a goal or focus over the course so that she can cater to each of your individual needs.

Whilst we cannot promote the benefits of outdoor fitness enough, this particular course during the changing seasons will keep baby warm without a speck of mud in sight!

Where: The Gooseberry Bush Studio (above the café) 115 Kington Road, Wimbledon SW19 1LT.

The Gooseberry Bush Cafe is a lovely welcoming place which is great for socialising afterwards as well as offering excellent baby changing facilities.

When: Every Wednesday for 5 weeks from 24th April to 22nd May 2019.

Time: 9.30-10.30am

Cost: £65 for the 5 sessions. If you miss a session, you're welcome to make it up at one of HA fitness’s regular Fit In The Park classes.

Places are limited due to space and so please book soon to avoid disappointment. If you have any queries, please do drop us a line.

Inspire your children into being active

My kids may not always do what I ask them to do. But they’ll often want to do the things that they see me doing.

I love it when, at some of our classes, toddlers try to mimic what they see their Mums and Dads doing. They might not be strong enough, or co-ordinated enough to be able to perfect a burpee yet. But they’ll give it a dam good go, especially if it involves getting a bit muddy!

So be the person that inspires your children’s future fitness. Let them see you exercising, and let them know that it’s important to you.

Why not bring them along to some of our Fit In The Park - Family sessions over the Easter Holidays?

Everyone is welcome to come along, no matter how old or young. Drop us a line if you have any questions about how it all works.

P.S. The photo is of me and my 2 kids last Saturday. We entered a 5K team Swimathon together. My 7 year old swam 1K (40 lengths), my 9 year old swam 2K (80 lengths) and I brought us up to the 5K mark. I was a very proud Mum! (Dad worked very hard too. He had to count and accurately record every single one of our 200 lengths!).

Finally finishing with a cool down and stretches.

All our workouts are designed to get you into shape. To get your heart pumping. And to challenge all of your different muscle groups. No session is ever the same, so you won't get bored.

On top of all of that, we want to you have fun, feel motivated and make friends too.

There are no starting requirements. We warmly welcome all levels and abilities. Just let us know if you have any health issues or injuries that we’ll need to work around.

If you have difficulty with a particular exercise, we'll always have a modification for you. If it's all new to you, we'll be on hand to give you some extra help.

Still feel nervous about joining us? Why not come along for a free trial.. And why not drag a friend along too? What have you got to loose?

Meet us tonight (and every Monday night) at 8pm (address below). Use your HA fitness class pass, drop-in for £10, or join us for a FREE trial. No financial commitments or monthly payments. What have you got to loose?

Monday Nights in South Park Gardens - Time and Location Change

As we've done over the past few years, we're moving into the Holy Trinity School Hall on Monday nights starting from 29th October. We'll be training there every Monday night until the Spring.
