WHAT IS SWEATY MAMA?
WE HOLD TWO TYPES OF SWEATY MAMA CLASS – CLASSES WITH CHILDREN AND CHILD FREE FEMALE ONLY BOOTCAMP
Sweaty Mama Class
Sweaty Mama is a unique and effective way to exercise with your child. No need to organise childcare, Sweaty Mama allows you to bond with your child whilst you undertake the workout, utilising their weight to intensify the exercise. Over the course of sessions, you gradually build up your fitness level and strengthen your core to rehabilitate your body after having a child. A fab, fun workout to upbeat music both you and your child will love!*
Sweaty Mama Bootcamp
Sweaty Mama Bootcamp is a female only, fun and feisty workout held locally in a park near you. We undertake effective circuits at high intensity to raise Human growth hormone and assist in efficient fat burning! Combining various workouts to keep you on your toes, Sweaty Mama Bootcamps are an ideal way to workout in a safe & friendly environment with other Mamas, motivating each other to work hard whilst having a laugh and seeing great results*

You can wear anything comfortable, gym wear or leggings and t-shirt with trainers. You can get quite warm during the session so bring a top over your tee/vest that you can easily remove as you warm up.
Bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated and if suitable for the age of your child a sling/carrier. This is optional and all tracks can be undertaken without.
We work Sweaty Mama on a 6 week continual course, so that you get to know the other Mamas and children but also so you can build up the exercises each week as you get fitter and stronger. The course is £35 for 6 weeks. If you have a bad night, or need to swap groups we are happy to be flexible should you need to. We would just need you to let us know so that we can check availability of other groups.
We have Mamas undertake Sweaty Mama with older children from 4/5 years old into the Teens! The workouts are easily adapted to suit the age and weight of the child. They may even enjoy partaking with you, joining in marching and squatting to the music! Feel free to bring along a few toys or entertainment as a back-up in case you child wishes to sit to the side. There is no set rule at Sweaty Mama, we just adjust to make sure you get the most out of your workout!
Not at all! Younger babies are more suitable in a carrier as this allows them to stay close to Mum, however older children may be free-held or held for only part of the workout. You may find you get more out of the workout as you can use your upper body also.

SAFE BABY WEARING
Sweaty Mama pride ourselves in safety for our Mamas and Children. We cannot emphasise how vital safe sling wearing is to us and our Mamas. We follow the TICKS rules to safe sling-wearing and all of our instructors assist Mamas to read these through and follow manufacturers guidelines and instructions for safe sling use. An option for part of our sessions does involve Sling wearing however this is not vital to the workout. If you prefer you can hold your child close and still safely undertake the session.
As specialists in Post Natal Fitness, we understand the changes your body undertakes and how important it is to do the right exercises to reintroduce exercise gradually and effectively. We focus on assisting to re-stabilise core strength which switches off during pregnancy to allow the necessary growth of baby. Helping rebuild your core will aid back strength and lessen issues in lower back pain. We also understand the many other issues that can arise following pregnancy – Pelvic Floor and Divarication of Rectus Abdominis (Split Abdominal Muscles)
When you first come along to a group discuss any specific issues with your Sweaty Mama instructor whilst completing your PAR-Q Form and we will ensure that any necessary exercises are adapted to protect and aid your recovery as best possible.
All Sweaty Mama instructors are required to hold the Level 3 Pre & Post Natal Exercise certificate, as well as attending a course in Safe Babywearing.
