FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN CAN I EXERCISE AGAIN POSTNATAL?
I recommend waiting until after your 6-week postnatal check before you start a new exercise program. But there are gentle breathing & pelvic floor exercises you can do in the meantime.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A 1-2-1 SESSION?
Each 1-2-1 session is 1hour long and will be tailored to your needs & experience. Don't like burpees? Then I'll never get you to do a single burpee! As much as I aim to push you during your session, it will still be enjoyable.
HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM A REGULAR GYM TRAINER?
Your sessions will take place in my private studio, so no crowds, loud music or feeling self-conscious.
I am Pre & Postnatal qualified so can guide you through each trimester. You can then bring your baby with you to my baby-friendly space!
If you need to change a nappy or give your baby a feed, we can pause your session, & if you're comfortable for me to hold your baby while you do your set, I'll be more than happy to!
DO YOU HAVE ANY OFFERS?
When you come for your second session in the same week, that session will be half price!
I also have bundle pricing available - which works out cheaper than PAYG and has the added benefit of keeping you accountable!
WHAT TYPES OF HOME FITNESS EQUIPMENT DO YOU RECOMMEND?
There are plenty of exercises you can do either without equipment or holding your baby as a weight!
But if you want some equipment to use at home I recommend picking up a set of light dumbbells & a set of resistance bands.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY SESSION?
Come wearing your usual gym clothes - layers are always a good idea so you can add/take off as required!
Please bring a bottle of water with you, to stay hydrated. And don't exercise on an empty stomach.
And of course, you can bring your baby! I have toys in the studio, but if your child has a favourite toy or snacks then please bring those too.
