Buggy Walks

A great incentive to just get out the house!

Active Mums Club Events page

The Active Mums Club buggy walks are a great place to meet other new mums and mums-to-be, and the conversations both during the walk and after have been so valuable to many mums already. The walks are pushchair friendly and have a cafรฉ near by for that all important cuppa. We are also open to suggestions of new places to walk in the county, so if you have any great ideas, please let us know!

The walks are free to join in and will be happening throughout the winter. In the case of inclement weather, a decision will be made on the day if the walk will continue. However we will always meet for the all important cuppa at the start/end point so even if the walk cannot go ahead please come and see us for a brew and a chat.

Active Mums Club Army

Walk leaders

We are super excited to announce our 1st Walk leaders.
Welcome to the team Kelly.

Little bit about Kelly โ€“

'Hi. I'm Kelly. I live with my husband and our 9 month old son. We're an active family and love being outdoors. I'm a strong believer in staying active to support your mental health.
After having to stop running during pregnancy I was disappointed but I aimed to stay active during pregnancy and did so with weekly yoga, swimming, walking and HIIT classes. Since having my little boy I walk walk, go swimming and HIIT classes weekly. I'm now running again which I think was helped by staying active in other ways!

I'm excited to start leading my own walks soon for other local mums. There is nothing better than a walk and a chat with like minded people. (coffee and cake after also help!)'

Kelly will be starting her 1st walk:
๐Ÿ“† Tuesday 12th December
โฐ 1pm
๐Ÿ“ Gorse Covert Community Centre.
They will then be every 2nd Tuesday of the month, same time, same place.

Jasmine

More Information about Jasmine's Class

Jasmine will not only be launching her new Moving Mum classes in January but is also be joining our walk leading team ๐Ÿคฉ

A little about Jasmine:

I am super passionate about fitness and it has always been a huge part of my life. I have been an instructor in the local area for 3 years now and teach a variety of classes. Once I got pregnant, exercise was something which was very important to me and it was so beneficial to my pregnancy and birth. This meant I experienced the challenges of exercising whilst pregnant but managed to keep it up, modifying it accordingly.
I also now experience first-hand the challenges of finding the time to work out with your baby but also how to exercise safely in the postpartum period. I made an amazing decision in my maternity leave to become qualified in pre & postnatal fitness as I believe every Mum should have the opportunity to exercise safely throughout their pregnancy and beyond.

Jasmine will be starting her 1st walk:
๐Ÿ“† Friday 5th of January
โฐ 1pm
๐Ÿ“ Bouskell Park Blaby.
They will then be every 1st Friday of the month, same time, same place.

Walk Leader Inquiry

Do you have what it takes to join our new Active Mums Army?

In order to continue our walks in 2024 we are looking for new volunteer walk leaders who can deliver walks on behalf of the Active Mums Club. Mums, Grandma's, Dads even. Anyone who can support our mums to be active and sociable!

What does it entail?

Becoming a walk leader is quite simple! You will be required to take part in a 1 hour workshop which will enable you to have the knowledge needed to deliver a good walk. You can then decide when and where you want to deliver your walking group. Every week, fortnight or month, the choice is yours! All we ask you to do is give us notice so we can help to promote.

How do I inquire about becoming a walk leader?

Click the inquiry button and send us a message if you have any additional questions or want to be involved!

About Move classes - These are are great opportunity to test out a mum and baby class without the commitment. We do more structured exercise but, most of all have fun. Babies are welcome, if they need attention, picking up, feeding, cry, it is not a problem. We want you to be in a relaxed atmosphere where you can get some movement in between the babies schedule.

If you have not had your 6 week check (recommended for 9 weeks post c-section) or you have any pregnancy complications unfortunately it is not suitable for you. But if you are unsure at all please just ask us ๐Ÿ˜Š ask here

Can't make it? Don't worry!

We are working on bringing to you a series of other Move sessions so keep an eye on our website or social media accounts for something coming near you soon.


Let's Get Moving at Home

Active Mums Club 'At Home' series has been created for you to try workouts, exercise routines and stretches at home. We know that sometimes you want to get moving but for whatever reason you cant get out and about that day. The series is designed to help fill that gap for you, some are live follow along video's and some have the instructions on the videos to follow.

A new video will be released every month exclusively to our club members first, through our newsletters. They will also feature on our YouTube channel so if there is ever any you missed or want to try again they are all there for you.

Always make sure you warm up properly before doing any exercise and stretch after.

This month we want you to try one of our video's and let us know what you fancy. If there is something specific you would like in the new year, let us know.

Make sure you always warm up properly and stretch after.

Let us know how you find it ๐Ÿ˜Š
