There are also sessions at National Trust's Penrhyn Castle near Bangor between March -July 😊

It's not just a walk in the park!

Buggyfitness is a safe varied pre and postnatal workout for new mums looking to get back into feeling healthy.
People are often surprised at how effective the workout actually is while the baby stays in the buggy. Come along. It's a fun way to meet new people. These sessions certainly tip the balance between mums and baby groups focused on development and play, and the time mums put into their own health and fitness goals.

Are you a motivated mum?

If you know a group of mums keen to exercise together, not a walking group, a proper conditioning workout,
get in touch and I'll see what I can do!

There is no pressure to keep up just work at the level to suit you

What shall I do if baby crys?
Babies cry. Don't worry we've all been there!
Sometimes we stop to feed or change baby, the class continues and mum can join back in when ready. If babies cry I endeavour to help out while you carry on training.

What shall I bring?

A rain cover, a baseball hat to keep off sun and rain, sunglasses and gloves if you don't like cold hands.
Strong supportive bra, good fitting trainers, a water bottle and a smile.
Don't forget. There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing!
Although you get warm, babies are not exercising, so remember your cosy toes or blanket for the cold days.
We do Buggyfitness rain or shine.

Buggyfitness improves strength and stamina making daily tasks like putting baby into the car seat easier. Get focused on restoring your core, your posture and pelvic floor which are all areas challenged during pregnancy and childbirth.

Sessions are suitable for ALL fitness levels from from 12 weeks first trimester, 6 weeks postnatal or from 10-12 weeks after a caesarean.

Some mums trained during pregnapncy and are into fitness before attending Buggyfitness where as others are beginners.
All health screening forms and location details and further info can be found at here book now.

With a twenty year teaching history I always find a suitable exercise to suit each individual. Some mums power walk while others learn to run, or sprint! Some struggle with traditional flexion based core exercises due to diastasis recti so we work on the deep transverse abdominal muscles instead.

Others are ready to move on to advance abdominal work so gradually the exercise progress and equipment such as balls and bands can be used.

If you have any questions that aren't, answered on this page, get in touch.

What not to forget?

Snack for baby / toddler. Toys / books for toddler.
You are doing a great job being Mum and you deserve to take time out to look after yourself properly.
Now and for the rest of your life!
Once you get started....You'll be a roll model of fitness and wellbeing to all your friends and family 😊

Preparation

🌟Feed baby before coming to class if possible. This means there is a chance baby isn't as hungry and you can get an hour for YOU.

🌟If you're breastfeeding this also ensures you are more comfortable to exercise.

🌟Factor in an extra hour after the class if you can, to go for a mooch in Rhos on Sea (or at the Castle).
Extend your walking time along the gorgeous promenade (or in the stunning grounds)

🌟 Plan a healthy bite to eat so you can refuel afterwards. It's too easy to go for cake and coffee in baby groups p. Choose nutritionally valuable food over fancy cakes and treats. Your body needs nourishing after giving birth and will still be recovering, building muscle, new connective tissue and laying down layers of new bone and cells.

🌟These early baby months fly by and how we look after ourselves is key to how well look after our loved ones.
