Exercise classes for mums in every stage of parent hood
Whether you are working out to keep fit or to help with post-baby bodies, keeping active is an essential part of a healthy regime. What better way to get back in shape than with other mums who are striving for the same goals? Not only can you meet new people and expand your social life aside from baby duties but you can also feel better and healthier while you do it. Below are a list of classes available in and around St John’s Wood for pregnant mums, mums and babies and post natal mums. Do feel free to let me know if you know of any other classes that could be featured here.

This section is aimed more at mums who are pregnant, have just given birth or are starting to gently get back into their exercise routines and are looking for classes that help with a gentler introduction to keeping fit along with their babies.

Parent and Pram

Designed for both pregnant mums and mums and babies the classes are designed to leave you more energised and calmer to carry on your daily routine. Mums to be can start at 12 weeks of pregnancy and mums and babies when baby is 6 weeks old. Some exercises are done while carrying your baby in a sling.

Buggy boot camp in Hyde park
Mums With No Excuses
Boogie Bug Classes in Queen’s Park
Boogie bug classes are a wireless headset buggy class to music focusing on full body conditioning, core restore and increasing fitness levels. Getting back in to exercise after having a baby can be daunting.
Can I plank? How do I get rid of my baby pooch? Can crunches flatten my stomach? It can also be stressful leaving your baby with someone else or difficult finding childcare.
Boogie bug classes are a non competitive class for mums without the stress of finding childcare as you bring the baby. Babies are also incorporated in to the session depending on the weather. Just bring yourself and your baby. Oh and some water! You do not need to bring anything else.
Must have had post natal 6 weeks check up if natural birth and 12 weeks if you have had a cesarean.
Classes need to be booked via the website but dont worry you can book on the morning of the class as I know how unpredicatable lives can be with a baby. Please call for prices.
