Mummy Boot Camp Workshop
Are you keen to take up a gym membership, return to jogging or simply want to up the intensity of your own exercise program after having your baby but unsure where to start? Our Bootcamp/Readiness to Run Workshops aim to bridge the gap between low and higher intensity training. These 5-week workshops will cover many of the exercises you will encounter in gym and boot camp settings including plyometrics, weight-resisted leg and arm work, jogging patterns, abdominal strengthening and more with a focus on applying the principles of alignment, load distribution, breathing pattern in coordination with pelvic floor and deep abdominal timing. In 2019 new evidence-based guidelines on Returning to Running post-birth were published. These classes will include objective measures recommended in the guidelines. Learn your warning signs for injury and ways to modify exercises so that you can return to your choice of fitness with confidence. Max 10 participants. Babies welcome.
NB These classes are not designed to be done in place of your gym/personal trainer. Rather they are to facilitate your return in a safer way.
