You and your little one can spend some time outside in the fabulous grounds at Garscube Sports Complex participating in appropriate post-natal exercises, focusing on rebuilding your strength and cardiovascular system and having fun with your child and other parents at the same time.
Suitable for all fitness levels.
How long is each session?
Each session is 45 – 60 minutes. Although feel free to leave early if your baby is unsettled or needs feeding near the end of the session. Everything is flexible to fit in with you.
What should I wear?
Layered, comfortable clothing that’s suitable to exercise in and appropriate for the weather. Securely fastened training shoes. Remember a hat if it’s cold and sun cream if it’s hot (we should be so lucky – we can hope!). Gloves are recommended as we often lean on benches and walls etc. and they can be wet and cold.
What do I need to bring?
For outdoor session: It’s advisable to bring a light waterproof jacket and gloves to keep in the pushchair basket. Occasionally we lie on the grass, and some people like to bring a towel/mat to lie on. Again this can be kept in your pushchair until needed. Other than that all you need is a small bottle of water and a light snack for afterwards if you desire.
What about my baby/Child?
Your baby will love watching you workout, while sitting in their buggy. Don’t worry at all if your baby cries. We all understand and I guarantee yours won’t be the only one. Feel free to stop and attend to your baby’s needs and join back in with us when you are ready – Your baby comes first at all times. Your baby will enjoy taking in all the senses around them as we move through the park, however bringing some snacks or favourite toys can help keep them entertained if we’ve stopped to do some exercises. And although you may get a bit hot and sweaty, bear in mind your baby isn’t working out, so ensure they are dressed for the weather. And don’t forget that rain cover!
Do I have to run?
Absolutely not. The sessions are designed for postnatal women and that means gentle/brisk walking is recommended. You do not have to do ANY of the exercises if you don’t want to. All exercises can be adapted for individual needs. Of course, women of all abilities and postnatal stages are welcome, as are Dads/Grans/Grandads/Guardians, therefore if your baby is over 6 months of age and you’ve already regained a level of fitness, then you’re welcome to take things up a level. But don’t worry, Lisa will be there to help keep you on track.
Do you have baby changing facilities?
Yes, baby changing facilities are located in the reception area at Garscube Sports Complex. Also our changing facilities are large enough for you to take your buggy’s into if you wish to change/shower before or after your class.
Do you have car parking?
Yes our car park at Garscube Sports Complex is free of charge.
We have a fantastic social area at Garscube Sports Complex, where we encourage you all to meet before or after class, this can give you the perfect opportunity to chat meet and chat to other parents.
