Pregnancy takes its toll on your body, but the good news is that mothers actually have a greater capacity for fitness after having a baby.
It’s possible to get into the best shape ever following childbirth. Indeed, many sportswomen, including Paula Radcliffe and Kim Clijsters, hit a career high after becoming mothers. While the average mum might not be looking to win a marathon or open tennis championship, it is important to get back to feeling good about yourself and your body.
If, like us, however, you lack the motivation to get started or need help targeting those stubborn areas, then Mark Wild is the man for you. A freelance personal trainer and nutritionist, Mark has extensive experience of getting mums back in shape with his bespoke personal training service.
Even a preliminary course of 10 sessions with Mark (two to three times a week) can make an impact and get you started on your journey towards weight loss and fitness. Each session focuses on posture, fat burning and toning – using low-resistance cable machines, TRX suspension training, kettle bells, dumbbells and more to work different muscle groups and keep the sessions varied and fun.
To really help you reach your target weight, Mark also works with chef, Jonty Franks, to offer clients the option of devising a personalised diet. To save you time, hassle and the temptation of a quick, unhealthy fix, healthy and delicious food can be delivered daily to your door.
Mark works from three studios in SW London – Zinc Fitness (Clapham Junction), Fred Fergé Fitness With Style Studio (Battersea Reach) and Stars Gym (by Battersea Park/Albert Bridge). All studios are lovely – equipped with changing rooms and showers and offer free towels.
Childcare needn’t be a barrier, and baby can sleep in its pram or play (either in the studio or park) while you work out. With your Clapham Mums Card, it’s £45 for an hour’s individual personal training. This discount is from Mark’s usual costs of £60 for an hour (or 10 hours for £580) or 45 minutes for a set rate of £48. To keep costs down, try training with three or four other mums!
