Rize Queen’s Park
Having time for yourself is a rare thing when you become a mum. With little ones in your life, simple things like having a shower, (dare we say it!) going to the toilet, or even getting to eat a bowl of cereal uninterrupted can become huge luxuries. So, having some time for yourself to exercise probably gets pushed to the bottom of the list of priorities – if it makes it onto the list at all. Your fitness however, doesn’t have to be (and shouldn’t be) something you compromise on.
Rize in Queen’s Park is not just about providing a fantastic fitness experience for pregnant women or those with babies and pre-crawlers; but also creating a safe fitness hub where mums can make local friends, have some ‘guilt-free’ time for themselves and boost their wellbeing, both mentally and physically. Fitting in time to exercise as a mum 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. In addition to this, exercising can boost energy levels, and when you’re sleep deprived that can only be a good thing!
The classes are relaxed and friendly aimed at getting you back into shape and increasing your fitness during pregnancy or after having your baby. Rize offers baby friendly fitness classes, with pre and post-natal trainers available on site for advice. Take your bundle of joy along in their buggy or car seat or use one of Rize’s 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, then carry on. You’ll be with other mums and within a safe, warm setting.
Whatever your pre or postnatal stage – or even if you’ve been a mum a while now and just want to get fit and make some friends – Rize in Queen’s Park has a small group class that will suit your needs and will be delivered by one of their qualified trainers. So, there’s no need to limit yourself to playgroups and coffee shop catch-ups – you can do something different that really puts your fitness back on that list of priorities.
