Are you looking to return to exercise after having a baby? Looking for a class you can bring your baby to?   Come and join us at Fitmumas!  

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). 


Just £45 for a six-week term!

This is the best value course around – you get a weekly class and remote support in between to ensure that you get a personalised approach and are able to reach your fitness goals. It’s the most comprehensive holistic approach available locally and this price point is only possible due to our not for profit status.

Who is the class suitable for?

The classes are suitable from 6 weeks postnatal if you have had a vaginal birth, and at least 10 weeks if you have had a cesarean section. You also need to have had your 6 week check with your GP. Please contact us to discuss any concerns.

There is no upper time limit on attending – it’s never too late!

When do classes run?

We run classes on Tuesday evenings, Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. There is an advanced class that is suitable for those who have already completed at least a term of Fitmumas with us. Please contact us if you are unsure if the advanced class is suitable for you.

“Suffolk Babies is a lifeline for new parents and babies. Without it I don’t know how I would have coped, especially in the early days of being a first time mum when most of my other friends and family are at work. Fitmumas helped me get back to work in a physical job, which has been invaluable!”
