Do you want to get fit while exercising with your baby? This fantastic new aquacise programme does just that. For 30 minutes, you will get a great workout that is ideal for new mums as the water supports the joints, which may be under pressure from pregnancy weight gain and provides resistance training.
Aqua aerobics is a tried and tested method of getting the blood pumping, toning the body and aiding weight loss. This aqua aerobics class will be a mixture of different aquatic exercises suitable for the postnatal mum. It will vary between cardio workouts and aqua aerobics type classes combined with the tried and tested baby swimming techniques from Aquatots.
This aqua postnatal class is a great way to start exercising after giving birth. You can come from 6 weeks post vaginal birth and 10 weeks post caesarean section once you have had your GP check up. It is designed to help improve mum’s fitness and to introduce your baby to the water. There will be a gentle warm up, some muscle strengthening exercises and exercises to help bring the abs and pelvic floor back together.
For just £8 a session, you will be getting over 40 years worth of experience. Julie Whitehead (You and Your Baby) has over 20 years experience in midwifery, infant development and ante and post natal exercise. Sarah Buchan (Aquatots) has over 20 years worth of swimming teaching experience and has taught her Aquatots programme to over 200 babies. Both are mums and realise the importance of getting fit again after birth ensuring that women do not rush back to exercise that is not suitable for them.
This is a great way to start exercising again after a baby and share the fun with your new baby. Because an Aquatots instructor will always be present your baby does not have to have followed a baby swim programme, as babies do not have to be submerged.
