Seeing parents exercise from an early age is the best example we can show our children
We are very serious about offering a tailored exercise solution to each and every mum that visits our studio. Whilst the little ones are very welcome and we have everything you need to make them comfortable, including jumperoos, baby bouncers, carriers, toys etc the session is very much designed and focused around the mum to workout at the level that’s right for her. We are very experienced in tailoring exercises to suit not only the postpartum body but also each individual mum to ensure you gain the very best support, motivation and optimise the precious time you have to spend on yourself.
Often the ‘Little Fitness’ classes are the first experience people have of the Fitness Academy. As their babies grow and turn into toddlers and beyond, they are so used to the environment and set up that they continue to come to classes and happily sit on the sidelines as the mums exercise. We have seen so many little ones from new born grow up throughout years of classes – it’s so rewarding to see.
Alongside our extensive knowledge and experience working with mums we also have teamed up with our in-house Woman’s Health Physio if we need to draw on additional knowledge. It’s our ultimate passion creating an enjoyable supportive exercise experience for those that need it most and motherhood is one of those times.
We will happily cuddle your new born baby, chat to your toddler and hand out snacks when needed, all while teaching your class. The Little Fitness range of classes is probably our most rewarding to teach but also unique for you; you will not find a more personal, caring, supportive environment like it anywhere else.
