During our Buggy Fit Fitness Classes
Active Mummies outdoor fitness classes with or without buggies offers Mum’s of all different fitness abilities more than just a walk in the park!
Each session is an hour long and involves a 3 to 5 mile route in total. Sessions start with a 5 minute moderate warm up walk, followed by some Active Stretching; we will then progress into a power walk or jog to start to raise our heart rates. The classes will also include specific toning and strengthening exercises focusing on legs, bums, arms and tums, we will finish with a cool down and stretching.
You will be encouraged to exercise at a level which suits you! This is not a Boot Camp style workout and there won’t be any pressure to keep up with others. It is understood within the group that everyone is at different levels and everyone respects that. Active Mummies is primarily about having fun and getting fitter along the way.
