Online Exercise Classes For Mum & Baby
weekly classes for PRE & postnatal mums
Mpowered Mums is now online! Lockdown has caused a lot of hardship and sacrifice – especially for mothers – but your health and wellbeing doesn’t have to be one of them.
This is an inclusive, low impact exercise class for postnatal mums and mums to be, available on a donation basis. Workout in the comfort of your own home with personal trainer and pre & postnatal coach, Marianna.
Rebuild your strength, fitness and overall health in a safe and supportive environment. See below for further details on what to expect.
You must have the all clear to exercise from your GP and complete an online questionnaire.
Babies and older children causing chaos in the background are very welcome to attend – we’ll be muting you after all!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Coaching with compassion
This is not a bootcamp. It’s a place to feel encouraged, refreshed and empowered. As a new mother herself, Marianna, your personal trainer and postnatal specialist, offers a workout that is delivered with expertise, the most up to date research and an empathetic ear.
Cores & floors protected
Postnatal issues such as diastasis recti (split abdominals) and pelvic floor dysfunction (incontinence, prolapse) are accommodated with breathing, core work and modified exercises. Marianna herself has pelvic organ prolapse and has navigated the journey back to strength training and running.
Bridging rehab & fitness
The low impact approach provides a workout that will improve muscle tone, aid weight loss and stress relief. The aim is that you finish the class feeling empowered to pursue your ongoing fitness goals, having had fun along the way.
When you book your class you’ll be invited to a private Facebook group where you can ask Marianna questions, connect with other mums, and get the support you need outside of the class time. This is where you can access recordings of previous classes.
Even though we’ll all be in separate places, you’ll still be able to build relationships with other mums and your coach Marianna. And if you’re in Stockport or Manchester, hopefully we’ll meet up one day soon!
Join in from home
We start with a quick intro/catch up, then mute the mums’ mics and the workout begins. At the end of the workout, the mics are unmuted and we all chat again. Marianna can advise on form as provide modifications as needed.
