COVID -19

Due to Covid-19, a lot of things have changed but I’m please do announce that as of September 2020, we can get back to training on a face to face basis.

All classes must now be pre-booked and you are no longer able to drop into any sessions.  This is all done via an online booking system which shows my full timetable.  Spaces are limited on each session so please book well in advance to avoid disappointment.  Full flexibility is given on the system and should you no longer be able to make your session, you just go in and cancel/transfer the booking free on charge.  Book online here

Full risk assessments have been carried out for all face to face sessions and a Covid policy has been written to ensure safety is maintained at all times.  You must read and complete this online Covid form prior to attending the class

If you haven’t attended before, please can you also fill out my Prescreening form

Flexible Approach

Life with kids is extremely busy so These Mums Do has been created to enable Mums to incorporate a fitness plan into their weekly routine– with the ability to train with your babies/toddlers present in the days or when they’re tucked up in bed in the evening.  These Mums Do is for both the novice exerciser as well as experienced one, with all sessions tailored to individual client’s needs.

Get Active

Each session will focus on improving your fitness levels, working the core muscles and having fun!  I want to not only help Mums on their fitness journey, but also help them to meet new people, make new friends, get some support and get active.

The newly developed Zoom online classes are an amazing way of working out without the need for childcare – an affordable way of working out in the comfort of your own home.

My Aim

Is to make training affordable to everyone and help Mums recognise their potential.  The whole ethos is about making Mums realise they can do anything, be anyone and surprise themselves.  I also want to impart my love of exercise – especially running, on others.  I’m a huge believer in the idea that everyone can run, as long as they have the right tools and training #thesemumsdo

Facts About Me

In terms of the facts for you – I’m a Level 2 qualified trainer specialising in pre and post-natal fitness who is working towards Level 3 as I type!  I offer a range of services to Mums – group classes at the same time and place every week, online classes, 1:1 personal training and small group training sessions. I’m completely mobile so I bring everything to you so you don’t need to pay for any expensive gym memberships on top of my sessions

“From personal experience, getting out and doing some exercise can really improve your mood and help you through the craziness which ensues when a newborn baby arrives!”

My Story

My name’s Becca and I live in Sale, Cheshire and I’m a Mum (and wife!) with 2 kids and a very mental dog!! I’ve become a personal trainer to help Mums get back to fitness after having their little ones. After going through my very own battle back to fitness after having both babies, my aim is to now help others Mum’s with their journey.

I put on a LOT of weight with both babies – can’t really tell you why (cake had a little to do with it!) but I have managed to lose all of it – twice! It was no walk in the park (literally!!). A little part of it was down to my personal determination, but primarily it was the way I did it.

12 weeks after having my daughter, I joined a fitness class and this was the start of my journey. I took me 9 months but I finally got to my pre-pregnancy weight and fitted back into my jeans and I was hooked with the exercise bug! I have even learned to love running (it took a while…) but it’s now one of my favourite things – that and drinking wine!! (I’m a huge believer in everything in moderation!!)

I was made redundant whilst on maternity leave with my 2nd baby and I decided to use it as an opportunity to do something that I love and am really passionate about. I now want to help Mums on their own fitness journeys and meet their own goals and at the same time, give them the opportunity that I had – to be able to meet new people, get some support and get active.

Award Winning!

I am extremely proud to announce that I have won the Raring2Go Altrincham & Sale Award for the best pre/post natal class in the area – as voted by you 2 years on the bounce for 2018 & 2019!

I am so proud to have received this as it was all voted for by the public so thank you to all my members.  I’m so pleased you enjoy my classes and running clubs and cant wait to continue to get the ladies of Trafford fit and active!

Prices
My aim is to make training affordable to every budget and I hope my pricing structure reflects this. For each Personal Training client, I will do a detailed goal setting session prior to starting out as there’s no point in training if you don’t know what you want out of it. After working out your goals, I will then design you a tailor made programme which will get you to hit your targets

I also offer group training sessions for 2-6 people. This can either be groups of people that already know each other f, or I put similar, like minded people into groups with similar goals to yourself.

If you want any further information on pricing, please just get in contact and I’d be happy to discuss everything in more detail

Nutrition

Since 2018, I have worked in partnership with Debbie Gallimore who is a registered nutritional therapist who has run her own successful business in Sale since 2012.

Together we are extremely passionate about women’s health and weight loss and the mix of embedding the right diet and exercise means our two businesses work in perfect synergy.

We work together to provide nutritional challenges and dietary resets online to groups of women looking to learn sustainable, long term habits to overhaul their diets and teach them how to fuel themselves correctly along side getting active and improving their fitness.  It is an education of what to eat to ensure you can have a healthy, fun and energetic lifestyle.

Please get in touch for more information about the challenges we run

FAQ’s

When can I start?

For my post natal park classes, if you’ve had a natural delivery, you can start exercise from 6 weeks postnatal and if you’ve had a C-Section, it’s 10-12 weeks post. It really important that you have had your 6 week check with the GP prior to starting any exercise (or with the Health Visitor if the GP isn’t an option for you) but mum’s can join in at any time you feel ready to start after this up.

For my evening class and all my Zoom sessions, they’re suitable from 6 months post natally through to any age.

The running club is for all abilities.  The recommendation is to be at least 4 months post natal before returning to running and I recommend being at least 4-6 months due to the 7.15 start time – it’s tough to get out every Monday at 7pm with a baby younger than 4-6 months (it’s tough when they’re 4 years old sometimes!!)

How do I join?

For the exercises classes in the parks, you need to book online prior to attending. If you are coming for the first time, you will need to fill out a pre-screening questionnaire prior to your first session – here,

For personal training (group or 1:1), please get in touch with me and we can discuss all the different options available to you.

For the running clubs, for beginners, 5k Boost and the 5-10k clubs, they run in fixed time courses so please get in touch for the next start dates.

For 5k Smash, these are also on my booking system.  Advanced is at 8pm and Intermediate is at 8.15pm.  You will need to fill out a pre-screening questionnaire prior to your first session online here.

How much does it cost?

For the face to face classes and the 5k Smash run club, it’s £5.00 per session or £20 for 5 (£4.00 per session) as a class pass

For the online Zoom sessions, it’s just £3 per session or you can buy 7 for £20 as a class pass

Prices vary for group and 1:1 personal training – please click here for more information

What if it rains? (we are in Manchester after all!)

We do the workouts come rain or shine – unless the weather man tells us to stay inside or if it’s snowing (no-one’s that keen, surely??!!) so please make sure you come prepared for both yourself and the baby – lightweight waterproofs and pram rain covers are essential. There are areas under tree cover which we can move to which give a little extra protection from the elements

If the weather is too horrible to be outside in with your babies, I will move the session online and will do it via Zoom so you can work out in the comfort of your own home and not have to survive the elements.

What to bring?

For the classes, all you need to bring is an exercise mat and bottle of water – especially if you’re breastfeeding as you’re more susceptible to dehydration and then a snack like a banana (wouldn’t advise cake!!) for the way home in case you need an energy boost.

Also, for babies, it might be advisable to bring them a drink and snack to see them through the hour. Their favourite toy could also be handy too to keep them happy!

For the run club, all you need is a bottle of water and in winter, your flashing arm band.  You get given a band on your first session and it’s your responsibility to keep it and wear it every week when it’s dark to keep yourself visible and safe.  I recommend running with your phone for safety and potential emergencies.  A running belt or arm holder is recommended rather than running with your phone in your hand.

What do I need to wear?

  • Trainers – proper footwear is essential. You need trainers which will support and cushion when doing exercise. Good trainers will reduce your injury risk, especially if you’ve not done exercise in a while.
  • Sports Bra – your breasts change so much during and after pregnancy, it is essential that you support them correctly when doing exercise – and this is even more important if you are breastfeeding. It’s advised to feed before doing exercise so you are more “comfortable”!! For more information on good sports bras, I highly recommend the website www.boobydoo.co.uk who offer a fab range including maternity ones.
  • Light layers – we all know how changeable the weather is. It’s best to wear a few light layers so you can easily remove then during the workout
  • Flashing Arm Bands – for winter run club, please wear your flashy’s to keep yourself visible and safe when on the roads
  • Running belt/arm band – to keep your hands free for running but to keep your valuables like car keys and phones safe and on your person

COVID-19:

 

I am constantly keeping updated with the government guidelines in regards to the pandemic COVID-19.  Full risk assessments have been carried out and an up to date COVID policy is written and uploaded onto this website.  This policy must be read by all new participants to the class prior to them taking part and all participants will agree to adhere to the policy. Covid Agreement

Should you have any questions in regards to safety and any COVID specific practices, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.  I want to keep you safe so have done everything I can to ensure this.

Choose To Lose

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

There are so many good reasons to want to lose weight. Most people who sign up for my programmes do so because they are simply unhappy with their weight & fitness levels. They would like to feel lighter and healthier, look better, move better, run around with their kids. Now, in 2020, there’s another – major – good reason to want to lose weight: COVID-19.

As the pandemic progresses, we learn more and more about the connections between individual health and disease outcomes among those who contracted the novel Coronavirus. In May 2020, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that hospitalisations with COVID-19 were six times higher among patients with a reported underlying condition (45.4%) compared to those without reported underlying conditions (7.6%). Deaths were 12 times higher among patients with underlying conditions (19.5%) than those without reported underlying conditions (1.6%). The two most common underlying health conditions were heart disease (32%) and diabetes (30%).[i] Heart disease and type 2 diabetes are known to be largely lifestyle-related. In the vast majority of cases, we have the power to influence our risk to develop those diseases or their progression, if we have already been diagnosed. Both heart disease and type 2 diabetes have a lot to do with what we eat and how much we move.

In the UK, two-thirds of people who fell seriously ill with COVID-19 were overweight or obese. In Italy, 99% of deaths affected patients with pre-existing conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.[ii] These three conditions, together with overweight or obesity, frequently occur in the same person at the same time. The cluster of metabolic diseases is called “metabolic syndrome”. It is linked to weakened immune function as well as more severe symptoms and complications from COVID-19.[iii] Evidence shows that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities are disproportionately affected by obesity as well as COVID-19. These groups also have a higher prevalence of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.[iv]

A common underlying factor for the diseases characterising metabolic syndrome is insulin resistance. Insulin is the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. When cells become insulin resistant, they can no longer hear the message of insulin, and blood sugar levels go haywire. Uncontrolled blood sugar plays a significant role in inflammation and respiratory disease. Since the novel Coronavirus affects the lungs and causes inflammation, this explains why blood sugar imbalances are highly detrimental in COVID-19 patients.

At the end of July, the government launched its “Better Health” campaign, encouraging Brits to lose weight. Public Health England advised that “by reducing your weight within a healthy range, you can help cut your risk of being critically ill with COVID-19.” To improve health and wellbeing, individuals should aim to have a BMI below 25 and above 18.5.[v] The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends that Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups (BAME) should aim to have a BMI below 23 and above 18.5 to avoid health risks.[vi]

Now, that’s all well and good and very commendable. Yet, anyone who is overweight or even obese has probably tried losing weight before … and made the experience that counting calories and exercising more, expending more calories than they eat, did not yield the desired result. If you have ever tried and failed, others blamed you for not having enough willpower. Perhaps you even blamed yourself. The good news is: It’s not you. It’s not just your impression; the calorie equation really does not work.

Insulin does not just regulate blood sugar; it is also responsible for fat storage. Whether we store or burn fat has a lot to with how much sugar and refined carbohydrate we eat and how our body handles it. Unfortunately, the conventional advice of following a low-fat/ low-calorie diet inevitably leads to a diet high in carbohydrates. As fat has more than twice the calories of protein and carbohydrates, the easiest way to cut back on calories (which, we are told, matters) is to cut back on fat, resulting in a high carbohydrate intake. You’ve got to eat something after all. Yet, a diet high in carbs got us where we are in the first place.

There is a better way of losing weight that does not drive blood sugar and insulin sky-high: the low-GL approach. This way of eating has a low glycaemic load (GL), which keeps sugar and insulin at bay and allowing your body to access stored fat. So, how does this work?

I have teamed up with qualified nutritionist Debbie Gallimore to put together a 6-week Transformation Programme, starting on 9th November 2020. Debbie and I have been running online group programmes for two years and have the experience and know-how to ensure success. Together, we will coach you and a bunch of like-minded women to remove your barriers to weight loss, to find the right mindset, to embrace exercise and to make low-GL eating second nature. There will be a private, closed Facebook group for all participants, so you don’t just get our support, but also that of other women who – like you – choose to lose. Being part of a group of women going through the programme at the same time is a big boost.

Go on, join us. There has never been a better time to lose weight.
