For those who love the outdoors…
Park & Press-Ups
This class incorporates interval training in an outdoor setting to support long-term parenthood. It acts as a good stepping stone in helping you build and maintain strength, stamina and endurance in your body in a way that is both safe and effective.
Your postnatal recovery takes time and can vary for a variety of reasons but as a general rule, the ‘Park & Press-Ups’class is suitable for you to begin from 6 months and onwards. If you are new a mum, it is advisable to begin with the ‘Core & Floor Fit’* class as an entry/return into exercise.
*We do advise that you see a Women's Health Physio, e.g. Mummy MOT, to perform a deeper examination of your body prior to exercise.
Why choose outdoor functional training over a mainstream class?
you are trained by an experienced and qualified postnatal instructor
it exposes you to the benefits of being outdoors - scenery, sunshine (vitamin D), fresh air
it shows how to use outdoor equipment for an effective workout e.g. benches, steps, trees
it trains the female form so you can get the best out of your body
it develops your fitness, stamina and endurance
it encourages weight loss, a healthy lifestyle and better nutrition
it is a safe and friendly environment to meet new mums and make new friends.
your little is able to come along in a buggy, in wellies or with a ball
What to expect…
Participation in the class requires completion of a pre-screening health check form (PAR-Q)* before attending. This is to ensure that the exercises planned are appropriate, beneficial and encourage progress (*see the 'Waiver & Screening Form' tab above).
The class is delivered in a 45 minute circuit format to provide diversity where each session works through warm up moves, cardio pushing intervals to increase the heart rate/burn fat and the use of resistance bands to tighten and tone key muscle groups used in everyday ‘motherhood’.
Park & Press-Ups is suitable for all fitness levels with options and exercise modifications given where necessary.
*** Please check with a medical professional that it is advisable for you to exercise, especially if you have any medical conditions***
