Mummycise - pregnancy exercise class

An exercise class specifically designed for pregnant women of all abilities and previous fitness levels.

This class focuses on low back and pelvic strength as well as upper back and neck mobility and posture. It uses small weights, resistance bands, fit balls and mats.

During pregnancy your body changes so much week to week, so we work with you to help coordinate the different way your core muscles, your legs, glutes, and your back have to move to accomodate these rapid changes.

Commit to be fit during pregnancy and reap the rewards!

StrongFit - Learn how to lift weights safely

Strength training has many benefits, including injury prevention, pain management/prevention and bone density maintenance.

Resistance training is beneficial for everyone, yet so many avoid the gym because they don't know how to where or how to start, or they feel intimidated in typical gym environments.

StrongFit is an 8-week progressive strength-based program, designed to teach you how to lift weights safely and effectively so you can begin to reap the benefits of regular resistance training.
