Cabin fever? Climbing the walls? Need fresh air to clear out those cobwebs ... then give buggyfit a go. It is deemed to be the ‘ultimate fitness class for new mums’ as not only are you reaping all the rewards of exercise and movement, both you and your baby benefit form being outside in the fresh air – which is a great way to help manage any anxiety or PND.
An hour long class based on powerwalking and cardio games plus toning and strengthening segments – think step ups, press ups on park benches, walking lunges. Then we bring the resistance bands, add in some toning work as well as a section for the core and pelvic floor. A real all round feel good session, whatever the weather!
There is no such thing as bad weather to be outside, just a bad judgement of clothing! We will be there without fail, whatever the forecast!
We've decided that Mums shouldn't have all the fun … so we are now offering a buggyfit class for dads only! Come and gain all the benefits of outdoor exercise, meet other dads and enjoy a workout with your baby and tots. All facilitated by Monica, our Personal Trainer who has not only worked in a number of gyms but is also a ski coach and has 2 children of her own. This is the ONLY Dads group in Abingdon!

For all of my postnatal classes I do an ‘ab check’ for diastasis recti and ensure that the girls are working at the correct level and progressing.
