Buggyfit

Postnatal exercise class based on power walking, strengthening and toning exercises.

buggyfitCome along and reap the benefits of outdoor exercise in a fun and social environment. Meet other mums, burn calories, improve your posture and strengthen core muscles all in the fresh air!

Each class follows a pattern of intervals of cardio exercise followed by toning and strengthening work. We start each class with a warm up and then move into our power walking phase. Our intervals of strengthening and toning work could include squats, lunges and leg work, using resistance bands for arm, posture, waist or leg work. Sometimes we incorporate cardio games and the option to have a walk, jog or run whilst we mind the babies! We always cover exercises for your abdominals, back, posture, arms, legs and pelvic floor.

All ladies will also receive an abdominal check to determine whether we need to adapt any of the exercises for you.

 

Exercise classes Abingdon Oxfordshire where baby comes too

Buggyfit is suitable for any postnatal ladies, following their 6 week check. The benefit of intervals means that you can work at a level that is right for you and progress when you feel ready, which we know can change on a weekly basis depending on how good a night's sleep you had!
