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.

My Aim

Is to make personal 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 running on others as I’m a huge believer in the idea that everyone can run, as long as they have the right tools and training #thismumcan #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 training sessions at the same time and place every week, 1:1 personal training and group training sessions at a time and place suitable to you.

“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 overawed to have received this.  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 personal training affordable to every budget and I hope my pricing structure reflects this. For each person, 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 have come up with the idea of offering group training sessions for 2-6 people. This can either be groups of people that already know each other for example some of your antenatal/NCT group or just friends going through the same thing the same time, or I can 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

FAQ’s

When can I start?

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.

How do I join?

For the exercises classes in the parks, you don’t have to book in but if you are coming for the first time, you will need to fill out a pre-screening questionnaire prior to your first session. Fill out questionnaire online here, or if you get a chance please do get in contact with me.

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 and the 5-10k clubs, they run in fixed time programmes so please get in touch for the next start dates and for the Monday evening running club its complete drop in, just again let me know if you’re coming for the first time. You will need to fill out a pre-screening questionnaire prior to your first session. Fill out questionnaire online here.

How much does it cost?

For the weekly classes and the drop in run club, it’s £5.00 per session or £20 for 5 (£4.00 per session)

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

What to bring?

All you need to bring a 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!

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

Blog on the Manchester Half Marathon 2019

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

It’s been just 2 and a half weeks since the half marathon and I’m still buzzing about it all.  I still cant fully comprehend what we all achieved that day (and I’m not talking about turning the gin bar into an impromptu karaoke bar!!)  I had the privilege to be part of 42 women’s training plans – 32 signed up to the specific half marathon club and I helped another 10 people on top of that via the Monday night sessions.  That is just mind blowing – to be able to help that many women achieve their goals is genuinely wonderful.

 

The Half Marathon run club was the biggest and best yet (I mean, it was only my 2nd one but still…) We incorporated a lot alongside actually running – physio, pilates, foam rolling, nutrition, a post run brunch and obviously an epic post run party…and the feedback has been amazing. When asked how would you vote the group overall out of 10 the response was 9.6!  Reading through the survey responses has made me so emotional so thanks to everyone who gave their feedback.

 

The most common theme from the feedback was the solidarity and impact of doing this as a group – the power of a bunch of women with a common goal is unsurpassable! Everyone gets added to a closed Facebook group and at the start of the 12 week training plan, I encouraged every member to introduce themselves and tell everyone about their running goal for the half – eg goal time, if it was their first one, etc and that was the start of their journey to 13.1 miles.  Comments like “felt like a family”, “excellent support network” and “loved the team morale, motivation, advice and encouragement” were received when asked about what they found most useful about having Facebook as a tool.

 

When I asked the members what their favour part of the half marathon training club was, the answers blew me away.  My personal favourite part of the training club was watching friendships between members grow and also to see people’s self-confidence build week on week.  To lead a group of women to push themselves out of the comfort zone and achieve something like this is pretty special.  These were some of the responses from the group on what their favourite part of the club was:

  • “getting to know people and chatting during the long runs”
  • “the sense of achievement after completing the Saturday long runs”
  • “morale boost from the group, achieving a new PB and the prosecco afterwards”
  • “everything – from the structure of the training through to the long runs”
  • “loved it all – being part of a community”
  • “spending time with an amazing group of women – the group training and friendship was brilliant”
  • “reaching unchartered ground and loving it as well as knowing my limits and pushing them”

 

One of the comments which hit home most of all about what I had created was “realising I can do more than I ever thought possible and achieving my goal” – what an epic thing to lead up.  Never in a million years did I think I’d be doing things like this when I started the business!

 

I asked various different questions in the survey – not only positives, but ideas for things which could enhance the group, changes which they think would have helped improve it  and the answers were so constructive and helpful.  The main requests for improvements were things like working on pace, getting extra advice on shoes/clothing, technical running advice to look at technique, form or style which I absolutely love and am definitely going to input into next years club where possible.  I did the same for the group last year and that’s why this year I added in a nutrition, physio and pilates elements for this years training and these extras went down so well.

 

One of my highlights from analysing the survey results was the fact that 100% of the group would recommend it to a friend.  Everyone – isn’t that just amazing!  It just shows how much they came together as a team.  The question was worded “Would you do the club again?  If yes, why…if no, why?” and the responses were again mind blowing!  Here’s a selection of the comments:

  • “it builds self esteem, friendships, breaks barriers and pushes your comfort zones”
  • “you achieve the unimaginable”
  • “friendly, supportive and really really rewarding”
  • “likeminded ladies, all abilities, not compeitive, very supportive and great post race gathering”
  • “nutrition support and the after party is the best in town”
  • “exceptional support from Becca and the group – the training plan was manageable even for the busiest of mums”
  • “great club, lovely group and brilliant run leader”
  • “feels like I’ve made friends for life”

 

It took me a while to actually fathom that last comment – “feels like I’ve made friends for life” – I absolutely love this.  I myself have made some amazing friends from starting this business so the fact that my clients are now doing the same is unreal and so satisfying!

 

We trained together on this for 3 months but some of these women have actually been training with me for 2 years.  21 of the 42 people started in my Couch to 5k Beginners groups – so never ever think that it’s “just 5k” or anything like that – this lovely bunch have set targets and hit their own goals over the years and have now hit the half marathon goal.  There was even a request on the survey for me to start a marathon training club…now that’s a bit keen, even for me!!

 

When I started writing this blog it was going to be about my half marathon – how I felt, how I found it, etc but as I was writing I realised that totally paled into insignificance for me.  Yes it was a great half – I totally felt famous running through Sale.  I hit my target time of 1hr 56 mins so was super chuffed with myself as that took 2 mins off my PB and I took 6 minutes off last years time.  There were highs and lows during the 13.1 mile slog but that all meant nothing when I got to The Bridge and my runners started arriving and I could see how ecstatic they all were about smashing their goals!  That was my real highlight – that and the post run steak frites and prosecco!!

 

I’m 100% doing another club next year and it will hopefully be even bigger and better than this years.  85% of the group have said they’d be up for doing the club again next year with another 12% undecided so I’ll take that as a challenge to convert them from a maybe to a hell yeah!!

 

So if you’re tempted to get started, don’t delay.  I’ve got a new beginners running club starting in January so get in touch and get your name on the list.  You never know where running will take you!
