Do I need to exercise in the first few weeks?
Yes! Although exercise may feel like the last thing you want to do as a new mum, it does have its benefits:
Instructor and father of two boys, Murat Gecmen, said: “Buggy Fitness is not about the pressure to be thin, it’s about working out as a way to improve your well-being inside and out. So not only will you see the results, but you’ll feel them too”.
Murat caters for all fitness levels giving regressions and progressions along the way so you can exercise at a pace that works for you.
Classes takes place every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11.30am and 3.30pm.
Meeting Point is at MG Fit in Fitness Studio, 6 Balmes Road, London, N1 5TQ.
Before commencing Buggy Fit, please always check with your GP / Midwife. It is recommended that after a natural vaginal birth you wait until after your 6-week post-natal check by your GP / Midwife. If you had a caesarian it is recommended that you wait for 8 - 10 weeks after birth.
"After enjoying myself (food wise) a bit too much during pregnancy, i found myself in the worst shape ever after having my baby in April. I decided I wanted to get back in to shape, but with little time on my hands due to the baby and being extremely unfit I didn't even know where to begin. Luckily I heard of MG Fit in Fitness Training Buggy Fitness through one of the ladies in my NCT class and signed up straight away. Best decision I've made, as both me and my little girl have enjoyed our 3 times a week meet up with the other mums and babies as well as Murat. The work outs have been great and I've already noticed such an improvement in my health, strength, energy level AND on the scale! Thanks for all the support and help both exercise and nutrition wise!" - Pernille Hveding
"I have been attending the Buggy Fit sessions with Murat and highly recommend it! The sessions are held in the studio and at Shoreditch Park depending on the weather and the work outs are always varied, which keeps it fun. There is a focus on core strength which has been particularly beneficial after having my daughter. Murat is very accommodating with the babies and is happy to give them a cuddle if they become unsettled! It's brilliant to be able to exercise with baby in tow and its also a great way to meet other mums in the area." - Lindsey Major
"Buggy Fitness has been a great way to tone up and lose a few pregnancy pounds. I was finding it difficult to find the motivation and time to go out exercising on my own but with Buggy Fitness I look forward to the specially tailored challenging workouts and meeting up with the other mums. My little boy loves being with other babies too, and Murat not only pushes the mummies but also provides great entertainment for the little ones! Terrific fun". - Nichola Jolley
