Ante / Post Natal Exercise

Fit Back and Bumps

1 hour classes

£50 / course

Fit Back & Bumps antenatal exercise classes and postnatal exercise classes are unique because they are delivered by our Chartered Physiotherapists so expert guidance and instruction is guaranteed throughout, helping remove the fear you might have about exercising during pregnancy and after you have had your baby.

What do I need to bring?

A lot of the exercises involve a gym ball. We provide all equipment during the class but would recommend you also have a gym ball at home so you can continue with your exercises. (Gym balls are available for sale at the classes.)

Cost

Costs are £50 for one course. If you subsequently book onto the post natal course, you will only pay £45.

Class Dates and Times

Courses run every month – please call us for specific start dates.

The classes will be held at our Long Eaton Clinic and run for four consecutive weeks.

My fit back & bumps course was fab! It gave me so much more than I expected. The course content was very thorough & the instructor’s knowledge of both advice on exercise & pregnancy concerns was excellent. I would recommend to all mums to be whatever your fitness background -- Becky

Meet Louise Leeming, your instructor!

impact-team--impact-teamLouise qualified in 1991 and worked in the NHS for 10 years before a break for the arrival of her two boys. She then moved into private practice and trained in Pilates. She now runs regular Pilates classes at Impact Physiotherapy.

“After feeling the benefit of Pilates for myself and the improvement it made in my own body after having children, I am so excited to be able to pass this knowledge on to women through “Fit Back and Bumps

The programme applies Pilates techniques specific to your changing body both before and after childbirth. So many women have later problems with incontinence and back pain following pregnancy and childbirth due to muscle weakness. To be able to apply my Pilates experience, along with my Physiotherapy knowledge to educate women to prevent this is fantastic!”

The FitBack & Bumps Programme teaches you:

  • standhow to exercise safely during and after your pregnancy
  • how to improve your posture
  • how to reduce stress incontinence by strengthening your pelvic floor muscles
  • how to reduce pelvic and back pain by strengthening your core
  • how to flatten your tummy after pregnancy
  • why things may be hurting and how to fix them!
  • and gives you the opportunity to meet other new mums and mums to be, developing lifelong friendships.

FitBack & Bumps is more than just an exercise class – the benefits last long after the birth of your baby!

I have really enjoyed the fit back and bumps classes. The classes have helped me to understand the changes happening to my body during pregnancy. It has also helped me to be disciplined about keeping fit during my pregnancy.

The class tutor was really enthusiastic & friendly and created a good atmosphere in class. I really liked the exercise cards to take away -- Louise
