Buggy fit exercise class for new mums
A great outdoor exercise class for post natal mums and their babies is taking place in Newbiggin.
Buggy Fit, run by Active Northumberland, is designed specifically for mums from 6 weeks after birth (or 12 weeks after a caesarean section) and for as long as your little one is happy in their buggy.
The classes are a great way to spend some time outdoors, to exercise without the need for childcare, and to meet other new mums.
Exercises include a brisk walk with the buggy and safe cardio and toning exercises designed to help you recover and regain fitness after pregnancy and childbirth.
The Newbiggin class runs on a Friday morning between 10.30 – 11.30am, meeting at Newbiggin Leisure Centre before venturing down to the sea front.
Classes cost £2. There is no need to book, just turn up on the day in comfortable footwear and clothing – and bring a drink too. Before taking part in this class, you must:
1 – Be 6 weeks post natal (or 12 weeks after a c-section)
2 – Have had an ‘all clear’ 6 week postnatal check
3 – Arrange a FREE abdominal check with one of our qualified instructors. This is a quick check to make sure your core muscles are ready for exercise. Please contact Jemma (details below) to organise this.
