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.

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.

3 tips for dressing your little one for a mother and baby exercise class

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

If you’re headed to one of Becca’s exercise classes with your baby, it’s important that they’re dressed right to keep them feeling comfortable. Here, Steve Cochrane MBE, Managing Director of Childrenswardrobe, shares his tips for dressing your little one for a mother and baby exercise class.

Keeping fit doesn’t have to take a backseat once you’ve had kids. In fact, if you opt for a mother and baby class, it can be a great way to stay healthy, de-stress and bond with your little one at the same time.

If you’re thinking of taking your baby to exercise classes with you, or you just fancy a walk or jog outside with the pram, you’ll want your little bundle of joy to be comfortable. And that means choosing the right clothing. Below, I’ll be giving you my top tips to help you dress your baby for an exercise class.

Choose the right fabrics

Although they won’t be doing much exercise themselves, you’ll still need to bear in mind your baby’s temperature when dressing them for your classes. What you put your baby in can depend entirely on the location and season. For classes that are taking place indoors, be mindful that the room can heat up quickly as everyone is working hard. To keep your little one cool, look for soft, thin, breathable fabrics like cotton blends. Try to avoid pure cotton though, as this can hold onto moisture and could make your baby feel uncomfortable instead.

Alternatively, if your exercise class will take place outside, you might want to wrap them up a little more, especially in the winter. Add a wool or polyester base layer underneath your little one’s clothing to give them an extra layer of insulation. If you can, choose merino wool, which is soft and thermal, but will wick away any moisture.

Add a few layers

When exercising outdoors, especially in the winter, it’s best to layer your baby’s clothing instead of applying one thick jumper or coat. As a general rule, you should dress your baby in one more layer than you’re wearing. Look for thin garments, like baby grows, long sleeved T-shirts, leggings, and a waterproof coat. These should be easy to remove with full-length front openings so you can take one off with minimal fuss if they get too hot.

Don’t forget your baby’s head, hands and feet, too. These are the areas where they can lose the most heat, so they’ll need to be covered to keep your little one warm and toasty. Look for little socks and booties, a hat and a pair of mittens to keep your baby cosy. Don’t forget to pack a few extra items of clothing in your nappy bag, so you can dress them in another layer to keep them warm and snug if they get too cold.

Check their temperature

Babies are more sensitive to the cold than adults are, which means their body temperature can fluctuate quickly. You can easily check if your baby is too hot or cold, even without a thermometer.

Feel their tummy with your hand. If it feels hot to the touch (not warm), then your baby might be overheating, and you should remove a layer. It’s normal for your baby’s toes to feel slightly cool, but if they feel cold, and their tummy feels cold as well, then you might want to add another layer to help them warm up.

If you’re thinking of joining an exercise class with your little one in tow, it’s important that they’re wearing the right clothing. By following the tips in this guide, you can make sure that your baby will be warm and comfortable no matter where you are.
