What is Mama Tone?
Our Mama Tone classes are specially developed sessions that are aimed at both pregnant and postnatal women.
These are an excellent follow-on class from our ‘Mama-To-Be’ pregnancy services and our ‘Get my Body Back’ postnatal services.
They are also an excellent way for any pregnant or postnatal mama to begin her journey to fitness safely.
We teach exercises that are designed to strengthen and improve posture and work on keeping the body supple and helping to keep aches and pains at bay.
Mama Tone is for larger numbers of participants who enjoy getting fit, meeting other mummies and babies and making friends.
Our classes are varied and we use different equipment to help us keep the workouts interesting and effective for you.
These workouts are safe for your present condition, but we understand that each individual will be different in terms of fitness and ability. We give options for our movements to help you to achieve the best workout for you.
We don’t want you to feel that you ever have to keep up or compete with the woman next to you, we want you to recognise your own potential and enjoy exercise that works for you.
Why does this class differ from other exercise classes?
We care about you and your health. We know that women can have complications with their pelvic floor, abdominals and core after they birth their baby. Women can feel weak, hopeless and unattractive and have lost all connection with their body.
We know that your 6 week postnatal check with your GP doesn’t always mean that you are ‘good to go’ in terms of exercise. Many GP’s give little or no guidance on how to care for your caesarean scar or stitches for the long term. They rarely ask whether you are leaking urine when you sneeze, skip or run, or if you feel you have dysfunction in your tummy and your muscles aren’t holding your internal organs in like they did before you had babies.
We understand you. We know that most women are looking for guidance and support that really works. We want to help you recover properly. You can talk to us about if something doesn’t feel right down below (pelvic organ prolapse) and abdominal separation, (diastasis). We want to assist women who are at their wits end to get their bodies feeling and functioning well again.
We have the skills, knowledge and credibility to deliver services to women that actually work to maintain fitness, help to heal and restore and empower you during this transformational time in your life. We won’t be prescribing high impact exercise, planks, crunches and sit ups to help strengthen a very weak core, as this this is entirely the opposite of what you need right now.
You need educating and guiding through this postpartum recovery process properly so you see real results and begin to feel great again. There’s so much to learn about what you can do to build strength and functionality in your core and pelvic floor after having children. We can help you get it right first time round and save you years of low self-esteem and putting up with a body that doesn’t work properly.
Following submission of your pre-screen, we determine what offering will serve you best, by using our ‘traffic light’ coded system. This ensures that you receive the best instruction for your current health status, and how to improve it.
If you feel that you have more in-depth concerns about your recovery after baby, then we advise you attend either our 12 week ‘Get my Body back after Baby’ course. This has less participants and is focused on more than just fitness. For a total bespoke experience, the Private 1:1 Consultation is our most personal service and will help you assess your personal issues and goals.
