Buggyfit Central Park
Buggyfit(TM) is the original outdoor fitness class specialised for postnatal exercise. Sessions are about an hour long and run throughout the year. All fitness levels are welcome, from those who have never worked out before to those who want to return to the higher impact exercise they were used to before pregnancy. The focus is on strengthening your core and pelvic floor in a safe and effective way. We also organise socials to help you connect with other mums.
Due to COVID pre-booking is essential as spaces are limited to a maximum of 10-15 adults to account for children too. All kit is sanitised before each session.
What to expect?
Buggyfit fitness classes for mums and babies are an hour long. Classes start with a moderate warm up walk, moving into a power walk or run to raise our heart rates. This is when we start to burn fat! Each class includes group exercises specifically selected to strengthen and tone particular muscle groups, and enable us to cope with the demands of motherhood. We finish off with a cool down and stretch.
Included in the sessions are tips and techniques on adopting and maintaining better posture and of course the chance to chat and make new friends.
All Buggyfit classes have been developed by experts to suit the various stages we go through after having a baby. Buggyfit trainers are experts in assessing how hard to work each Mum, and will always ensure safe technique is used to gain maximum results.
When can I start?
You may join a Buggyfit class as soon as you have had your GP check (usually at 6 weeks postnatal), and they have ok’d you to exercise. You don’t need a specific pram or buggy; we ensure the Buggyfit classes are suitable for all of you.
What to wear?
Layers of clothes, as even in the coldest weather we can get very warm
Hat, scarf, and definitely gloves (for mummy and baby)
Good trainers or walking shoes
Good fitting sports bra (or two!)
What if it rains?
We Buggyfit in all weathers (unless the Met Office suggests we don’t go out!) so come prepared.
Remember, “There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing!!”
Although you may get warm, the babies are not exercising, so remember your buggysnuggle, cosy toes, or blanket for the cold days – we Buggyfit rain or shine.
What not to forget?
Drink for mummy and baby
Rain cover / sunshade
Snack for baby / toddler
Toys / books for toddler
Completed health screening form: Health Screening Form
Please feed your baby before coming to class so your baby isn’t hungry and so you can get an hour for YOU. If you’re breastfeeding, this also ensures you are more comfortable to exercise.
