Stay fit, active and strong throughout your pregnancy with Kate’s Mum-to-Be Bootcamp!
Mum-to-Be Bootcamp incorporates different exercise formats, using body weight and weights to give your full body a workout. With big focus placed on maintaining and building strength in your posterior chain, core, glutes and pelvic floor as your pregnancy progresses.
Kate is a pre and post natal exercise specialist, so all exercises will be suitable for your stage of pregnancy and can be adapted for your experience level and ability.
About the Sessions
- Sessions are delivered in 4-week blocks and differ week-on-week, using a variety of training formats and equipment. So you take part in classes with the same group of women throughout the course; familiar setting, same friendly faces, sisterhood support, share your pregnancy journey!
- Course cost: £26 for a 4 week block (booked and paid for via the GymCatch app). You can pay per session if there is space on a course, PAYG is £8 per session. You can book PAYG the day before each class.
- To take part you MUST get the OK to exercise by your GP and/or midwife. You will be required to complete an online Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q). Here’s a link to view and complete the form: bit.ly/BrooksFitnessOnlinePARQ
- Kate will always demonstrate every exercise, talk through technique, giving support throughout. Offering lots of exercise modifications for all stages of pregnancy, your experience level and ability. There’s nothing to worry about at all, it’s a totally relaxed, fun and informal vibe.
- All you will need to bring is a water bottle to keep well hydrated.
Group exercise is great for many reasons, some of which are listed below…
- Meet other local mums-to-be, make new friends, share your pregnancy journey and support one another.
- Retain and build strength (particularly in your posterior chain, core, glutes and pelvic floor), maintain fitness and mental well-being.
- Give yourself an energy boost – as tired as you feel, you’ll feel energised and upbeat following a good workout – great for you and baby!
- Helps with facilitation and recovery of labour.
- Focus on your health and well-being instead of always putting everyone else first… and don’t feel guilty for it!
