Having time for yourself is a rare thing when you become a mummy! With little ones in your life, simple things like having a shower (dare we say it – going to the toilet!) or getting to eat a bowl of cereal uninterrupted can become huge luxuries. Making time for yourself to exercise probably gets pushed to the bottom of the list of priorities – if it makes it on the list at all! Your fitness however, doesn’t have to be (and shouldn’t be) something you compromise on.

Movers & Shapers in Balham recently underwent a revamp and launched an exciting new timetable of classes. The focus at the boutique studio is not just about providing a fantastic fitness experience for those with babies or pre-schoolers; but also creating a safe fitness hub where mums can make local friends, have some ‘guilt free’ time for themselves and boost their physical and mental wellbeing. The new studio manager Sophie is certified in pre and post natal exercise & nutrition and is passionate about providing friendly classes that allow mums to feel energised and positive.

As a mum, exercising is not only hugely beneficial for re-strengthening your core muscles (which in turn can help with back issues and posture) but is also vital to nurturing your mental health. Exercising can also boost energy levels, and when you’re sleep deprived that can only be a good thing!

Movers & Shapers now offer safe & effective classes targeting some of those common ‘problem areas’ for mums, whilst also reconditioning your core and pelvic floor and the best part… baby comes too!!! The classes are fun, friendly and aimed at getting you back into shape after having your baby (however long ago that was!). Bring your bundle of joy along in their buggy, car seat or use one of our special baby seats. If he/she decides they need a feed or sleep mid class – don’t worry. You can stop what you’re doing, see to your little one and carry on. You’ll be amongst other mums and within a safe, warm setting.

Whatever your fitness level, Movers & Shapers in Balham has a small group class that will suit your needs and will be delivered by one of our qualified trainers. Give yourself a break from playgroup sing songs or coffee shop catch ups and do something different that really puts your fitness back on that list of priorities.

You can also get a complimentary 5-day class pass and £20 off your first month or first package.
