Fitmumas Online Classes

Looking for ways to keep fit at home with your baby or toddler around, with flexibility and choice?

Have you had a baby and are looking to regain pelvic floor and core strength safely and effectively?

Join us online in Fitmumas classes!

We are now taking bookings for April membership. By joining Fitmumas you also gain access to all our April online baby and toddler classes, and support groups, which would normally cost £32.50.

Read on for details on what this unbeatable membership package includes:

Fitmumas classes are an hour dedicated to mummies who want to get back into shape and have fun with it. Mel uses a combination of cardio interval training, core abdominal work and all over body conditioning exercises, working at your pace to get you feeling fitter and full of vitality. Each week there is a relaxing section on the mat at the end to stretch out and reconnect with your body.  

Each exercise has options, so don’t worry if you haven’t done anything for a long time. This class is suitable for everyone, but do please contact us if you have any concerns or queries.

The course is also designed to educate you about your postnatal body, reconnecting you with your pelvic floor and understanding exactly how it all works. You may have heard of diastasis recti – Fitmumas will help you understand it and what you need to do.

Since 2012 Mel, a Level 3 Personal Trainer and certified Fitness Instructor, has been teaching a variety of classes including circuits, HIIT, FitSteps, Body Combat, Spinning and watt bike training.  She started to specialise in Post Natal fitness in 2013, becoming Suffolk’s first licensed Buggyfit instructor and developing her own post natal offering MumaMojo. 
 
Mel has trained with Burrell Education the most highly respected Pelvic Floor & Post Natal rehabilitation specialist in the country, to develop her own postnatal core strength and functional exercise, and restore/movement-based pelvic floor strength programmes.
 
A Suffolk girl born and bred, Mel has been living in Australia for the past four years (trying out all the new Australian fitness crazes) but has now recently moved back home, and we are so pleased to have her back (many of our Suffolk Babies clients use to train with her back in 2014).
