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 – Review of first 6 week transformation challenge

    By | Uncategorised | No Comments

    I’ve wanted to do a transformation challenge for absolutely ages but never seemed to have the time, or maybe confidence to get one started but when nutritionist Debbie and I had our monthly catch up back in September once the kids had (finally) gone back to school, we decided the time was right to get one created and go for it.

     

    Debbie and I have worked together for the last 2 years doing 30 day challenges which have been absolutely brilliant so we knew the formula worked but we also realised to make it a 6 week challenge, we would need to change things up.

     

    Out of the brainstorm, “Choose To Lose” was born and over the next month, we honed in on the detail and came up with a full 6 week challenge which incorporated our two passions of nutrition and exercise.  Graphics produced by the lovely Mia Horton from Hey Scandi and we were ready to launch – nervous as hell and just hoping that people would put their trust in us to let us help them.

     

    We were absolutely buzzing when we got 13 women signed up and ready to go to start the challenge in November – to do 6 weeks work with us before Christmas. Now the real work had to kick in – we needed to make sure each lady felt supported, informed and confident in what they were doing and why they were doing it.  We set up a closed facebook group and each member was added – this was where everything happened!

     

    On the nutrition side of things, we introduced a new topic every week from blood sugar balancing, emotionally eating, essential fats, etc and shared some amazing tools and techniques to help coach and lead the group through the challenge to ensure that they understood that this was a lifestyle change and not a diet.  We wanted to ensure that everyone understood the “why” behind the changes as education is just as important as eating more fruit and veg and doing a squat properly!  For us, sustainability was one of our key aims for the participants of this challenge.

     

    At the same times as overhauling their diets, we also wanted to embed exercise into their weekly routines. The group received 2 workouts via YouTube every week – each workout was 20-30 mins long so could be easily planted into everyone’s schedule.  There were two levels of workout – Beginners for those right at the start of their journey to fit and Intermediate to push those more active members of the group.  YouTube was used to enable the group to fit the workouts in when appropriate for them.  Life is so hectic right now, we didn’t want to add the stress of having to be somewhere at a certain time and day into the mix.

     

    So how did it all go I hear you ask?! Well maybe not, but here’s what the participants had to say!!

     

    Well it went pretty damn well if we do say so ourselves!  The group was amazing.  From Day 1 they were posting on Facebook asking great questions, thirsty for more knowledge about why we were doing it all, posting pics of their food to inspire others to try the new recipes, shouting about achievements and asking for advice if they were struggling.  It was exactly how we’d hoped it would be (geeky but very true!!)  It was all about women supporting women and building each other up to ensure that no-one falls.

     

    Overall we got a 9/10 rating for how successful they’d found the challenge and 90% hit their goals within the 6 weeks and the other 10% were well on their way making some excellent progress towards them.  Each individual’s goals were different.  Obviously everyone wanted to lose some weight but some of the top 3 benefits we received from the feedback questionnaire were amazing.

     

    They’d broken their long term sugar addiction, they had more energy, they’d broken bad habits or more importantly were educated to be more aware of those habits and realised that they found better coping mechanisms rather than grabbing their favourite snacks.

     

    One of the best questions we asked in the questionnaire was what are your key takeaways for the future.  The responses were brilliant – they had a better understanding of nutrition, some lovely recipes to keep long term, they’d learnt about balance and mindful eating, meal planning, scheduling exercise into a routine, drinking more water.  All the vital things which will help sustain this for the long term.

     

    For many this was just a start in their long term journey to fitness but it has had a huge positive impact on their lives and that for Debbie and I is exactly what it’s all about.  The accountability of doing it in the group setting has meant that they can start 2021 in the best possible position to smash their goals.

     

    There were a few highlights that really stand out for me.  The first was on week 3 when the real changes started to show and people were starting to realise how amazing it all was in terms of more energy, no longer hungry and just grazing for snacks in the kitchen and the second was seeing friendships form.  2 or 3 of the group met up and went for runs together – seeing the group supporting each other without our input to reach those common goals was amazing.

     

    To finish off, I’m going to share some of the feedback comments from the participants so you can read in their words what their thoughts were about the challenge.

     

    We’re hoping to run another 6 week challenge later in 2021 (when the kids finally go back to school hey!!) so please get in touch if you’d like to know more

     

    “I thought the challenge was excellent.  I achieved the goals I set out to meet and I have the tools to do more now. I wish I’d moved a bit more and done more of the workouts as I wonder how much more I could have achieved”

     

    “I really changed what I was eating and learnt a lot about swaps that would never have occurred to me.  It was great having ongoing support from the coaches and the group was great fun to be part of”

     

    “Great start and so educational to changing diet and adding in exercise, thank you”

     

    “Great recipes to help me change my mindset and stop my reliance on carbs.  Loved the challenge of two workouts a week”

     

    “My experience was great!  I’ve tried a lot of weight loss programmes and this was the only one that worked by giving me the tools to know what to do with a really supportive online group to keep me accountable.  The exercise element was brilliant too”

     

    “An amazing challenge with a really supportive group of women.  Lovely recipes that you can incorporate into everyday life and family friendly.  Try it, you won’t regret it”

     

    “It was definitely a challenge at the start but was so easy to follow.  6 weeks was great to change your mindset and create new and more consistent habits.  The support of the group was incredible.  I’d pay to do it all over again”

     

    “Thank you so much Debbie & Becca – the challenge has made such a huge difference to me.  The support offered was amazing.  As well as feeling lighter and healthier, I’ve had a complete mindset makeover when it comes to food.  Thank you SO much”

     

    “Loved this challenge.  All the people taking part were very supportive too.  Loved the menu planning ideas and exercises for beginners”

     

    “I loved it, Debbie & Becca were so responsive and helpful and created a group of women that were really supportive of one another.  Nothing but praise for it!”
