Mum, Toddler and Baby Exercise Class 

Organiser: Strongmamamoves.Aberdeen

Where: Warehouse Health Club, 20 Mearns Street, AB11 5AT Aberdeen 

Date:  Friday 23rd August 2019 Time:  11:30AM-02:30PM

Description: StrongMamaMoves Class

Our Friday Class will now adopt the brand name because it says exactly what it is!

Fridays at 11:30am at Warehouse Health Club

Parent, toddler and baby classes.  It is exercise for you!  Bring your babies along, bring toddlers along and they can play with their toys or they can join in with you.

A structured warm up, main workout and cool down and stretch designed for you to become stronger and move better so you are ‘for parenting’

How often are we having to pick things up off the floor while still carrying them or when they throw their toys out of the pram or even picking them up when they are on the move??…

Imagine doing a deadlift (the ‘scary’) one that people worry about doing their back in with) but the weight is a moving, fast, wriggling weight…  That’s parenthood!  But we don’t think about the fact when we pick our little humans up that we ARE deadlifting them, we ARE exercising.. And if we can’t move effectively we can get hurt..

So by doing a class that encourages increasing applied strength, increasing range of motion and fitness levels we are getting fit for parenting 🙂

It’s best to do this class after doing initial rehab work after birth. I have classes to refer for this or can offer PT.. This class is best as your next level up so you can make the most of it

Booking is essential.
