Flexible Approach

Life with kids is extremely busy so This Mum Can Fitness has been created to enable Mums to incorporate a fitness plan into their weekly routine– with the ability to train with your babies/toddlers present.  This Mum Can Fitness is for both the novice exerciser as well as experienced one, with all sessions tailored to individual client’s needs.

Get Active

Each session will focus on improving your fitness levels, working the core muscles and having fun!  I want to not only help Mums on their fitness journey, but also help them to meet new people, make new friends, get some support and get active.

My Aim

Is to make personal training affordable to everyone and help Mums recognise their potential.  The whole ethos is about making Mums realise they can do anything, be anyone and surprise themselves.  I also want to impart my love of running on others as I’m a huge believer in the idea that everyone can run, as long as they have the right tools and training #thismumcan

Facts About Me

In terms of the facts for you – I’m a Level 2 qualified trainer specialising in pre and post-natal fitness who is working towards Level 3 as I type!  I offer a range of services to Mums – group training sessions at the same time and place every week, 1:1 personal training and group training sessions at a time and place suitable to you.

“From personal experience, getting out and doing some exercise can really improve your mood and help you through the craziness which ensues when a newborn baby arrives!”

My Story

My name’s Becca and I live in Sale, Cheshire and I’m a Mum (and wife!) with 2 kids and a very mental dog!! I’ve become a personal trainer to help Mums get back to fitness after having their little ones. After going through my very own battle back to fitness after having both babies, my aim is to now help others Mum’s with their journey.

I put on a LOT of weight with both babies – can’t really tell you why (cake had a little to do with it!) but I have managed to lose all of it – twice! It was no walk in the park (literally!!). A little part of it was down to my personal determination, but primarily it was the way I did it.

12 weeks after having my daughter, I joined a fitness class and this was the start of my journey. I took me 9 months but I finally got to my pre-pregnancy weight and fitted back into my jeans and I was hooked with the exercise bug! I have even learned to love running (it took a while…) but it’s now one of my favourite things – that and drinking wine!! (I’m a huge believer in everything in moderation!!)

I was made redundant whilst on maternity leave with my 2nd baby and I decided to use it as an opportunity to do something that I love and am really passionate about. I now want to help Mums on their own fitness journeys and meet their own goals and at the same time, give them the opportunity that I had – to be able to meet new people, get some support and get active.

Prices
My aim is to make personal training affordable to every budget and I hope my pricing structure reflects this. For each person, I will do a detailed goal setting session prior to starting out as there’s no point in training if you don’t know what you want out of it. After working out your goals, I will then design you a tailor made programme which will get you to hit your targets

I have come up with the idea of offering group training sessions for 2-6 people. This can either be groups of people that already know each other for example some of your antenatal/NCT group or just friends going through the same thing the same time, or I can put similar, like minded people into groups with similar goals to yourself.

If you want any further information on pricing, please just get in contact and I’d be happy to discuss everything in more detail

FAQ’s

When can I start?

If you’ve had a natural delivery, you can start exercise from 6 weeks postnatal and if you’ve had a C-Section, it’s 10-12 weeks post. It really important that you have had your 6 week check with the GP prior to starting any exercise (or with the Health Visitor if the GP isn’t an option for you) but mum’s can join in at any time you feel ready to start

How do I join?

For the exercises classes in the parks, you don’t have to book in but if you are coming for the first time, if you get a chance please just get in contact with me first as you need to fill out a pre-screening questionnaire prior to your first session
For personal training (group or 1:1), please get in touch with me and we can discuss all the different options available to you.

How much does it cost?

For the weekly classes, it’s £4.50 per session or £20 for 5 (£4.00 per session)
Prices vary for group and 1:1 personal training – please click here for more information

What if it rains? (we are in Manchester after all!)

We do the workouts come rain or shine – unless the weather man tells us to stay inside or if it’s snowing (no-one’s that keen, surely??!!) so please make sure you come prepared for both yourself and the baby – lightweight waterproofs and pram rain covers are essential. There are areas under tree cover which we can move to which give a little extra protection from the elements

What to bring?

All you need to bring a bottle of water – especially if you’re breastfeeding as you’re more susceptible to dehydration and then a snack like a banana (wouldn’t advise cake!!) for the way home in case you need an energy boost.
Also, for babies, it might be advisable to bring them a drink and snack to see them through the hour. Their favourite toy could also be handy too to keep them happy!

What do I need to wear?

  • Trainers – proper footwear is essential. You need trainers which will support and cushion when doing exercise. Good trainers will reduce your injury risk, especially if you’ve not done exercise in a while.
  • Sports Bra – your breasts change so much during and after pregnancy, it is essential that you support them correctly when doing exercise – and this is even more important if you are breastfeeding. It’s advised to feed before doing exercise so you are more “comfortable”!!
  • Light layers – we all know how changeable the weather is. It’s best to wear a few light layers so you can easily remove then during the workout

Baby Loss Awareness Week

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

This week is Baby and Pregnancy Loss Awareness Week – a subject close to too many of our hearts.  Ridiculously, miscarriage and baby loss is still often seen as a “taboo” subject and it shouldn’t be.  I personally haven’t had to go through the utter tragedy of losing a baby but I so many of my friends have and I know from the sheer number of you that tick “miscarriage” in the box on the prescreening form which I ask you to fill out, I know that this will be a subject close to many of you as well.

Yesterday I had a look at the babyloss-awareness.org website to see what this week is all about from their perspective.  Their definition of the week is to “provide the chance for bereaved parents, families and friends to commemorate the loss of their babies lives alongside raising awareness about the issues surrounding pregnancy and baby loss in the UK” and there are so many ways we can support them.

Firstly, the one that EVERYONE can take part in – the Baby Loss Awareness week finishes on Friday 15th October at 7pm, the charity which is a conglomeration of over 40 charities is holding a “Global Wave of Light”.  All you need to do is simply light a candle at 7pm and leave it burning for at least 1 hour.  This candle is lit to remember all those babies that weren’t with us for long enough and gives you a time to think about your own situation or that of others you know have suffered or are currently going through their own hearbreak.  If you want to, post a picture of your candle on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the #WaveOfLight and their hope is to have a huge impact on raising people’s awareness and help to break the silence on what should not be a silent subject.

One other thing which I thought was such a fabulous idea on the website was the Sands Charity who were asking mums to email in to “Tell us about good care?”.  They want to raise the standards of care and the only way they can improve is to hear from those who have been through it.  About their experiences.  They want to know about the times when someone said or did something which helped you after you lost your baby – a few sensitive words or a small gesture, it could be anything which somehow made the most horrendous situation imaginable slightly more bearable.  They are asking for your personal stories about your experience from anyone who might have helped you – midwives, friends, families, colleagues, strangers.

Your story needs to be limited to 150 words and then emailed over to babyloss@sands.org.uk.  For more guidelines please go to www.babyloss-awareness.org/get-involved/#wave-light

Sharing stories about the good things can only improve the help that mums get when they go through losing a baby and that’s surely got to be a good thing?

I know that some of you feel that there wasn’t/isn’t much support out there so I really hope that remembering and commemorating their lives this week and on Friday at 7 will help in some way.

Finally, please remember – it’s ok to not be ok.  It’s good to talk and someone is ALWAYS listening.  You don’t have to go through things by yourself and it isn’t weak or wrong to need help – we all go through things differently but one thing is for sure – if you’re ever feeling down, please don’t filter your feelings or suffer in silence just ask for help and so many of us will come running.  I know I don’t know all of you that well but I’ve always got time for a chat/a coffee/a wine so please give me a shout if you need anything at all.

Year 1 is done and Year 2’s off to a flying start…

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Well Year 1 is well and truly done now – it’s October.  How in the world did that happen??

Thank you to everyone who came down to my first birthday party – I hope you had a fab night and hope there weren’t too many sore heads!!  I cant believe how many of you came – was so nice to see you out of your gym gear and glammed up 😊

So what’s coming up for the rest of 2017 and the start of 2018??

1 – as some of you will already know, I’ve started a new Sale class at Moor Nook Park which is going well so far – it takes a few months to gain momentum with a new class and I had 3 people down in just my 3rd week so hopefully after getting feedback from the mums in my other groups, the afternoon slot will be a huge success….fingers crossed.

2 – I’m hoping to get a few more events booked in like the Foam Rolling event.  It was such a fab evening.  15 ladies came down to be shown how use a foam roller properly by Claire from David Roberts Physio.  From knowing absolutely nothing about it until Wednesday (apart from some stuff I’d read and a few people asking me why on earth I don’t foam roll when I run so much!!) I’m a total convert – it’s amazing and I hope it will keep me injury free for a long time!

3 – I’m definitely doing the half marathon in 2 weeks – eeeeekkkk!!!  I totally didn’t think 2 weeks ago that I would be fit to do it after straining my ITB muscle (boooo – not fun) but with a bit of rest (yes, that was me “resting”) and some fabulous treatments from my chiropractor and a LOT of stretching, it’s better and strong enough for me to (hopefully) complete the half.  I don’t think I’m going to try and get the time I was originally going for but if I can get similar or slightly better to what I did last year which was 2 hours 8 mins then I will be one very happy lady!  I’ve bought some new leggings with Wonder Woman on which are utterly hilarious so give me a shout if you’re watching – I’ll need all the help I can get to get round the course!!

4 – I’ve bought some new kit so will be developing some new workouts using it!!  I’ve got some Kettlebells to introduce to workouts and I’ve also bought two little “steps” (yes, like the 90s ones but a bit smaller and more transportable!!) which are going to be a fab addition to my PT sessions to add that extra resistance.

5 – Develop the running clubs – so many people have done sooooo well with their running and it makes my heart burst with pride when people tell me how much time they’re smashing off their runs and when people text me to say they’ve run 10 mins straight for the first time in their lives or they’ve just got 3 minutes off their 5k time it’s just amazing!!  I did a survery monkey questionnaire a few months back and the results have been really really interesting so I want to develop this and improve it, enhance it and generally just take over the world!!  Watch this space on this one as it’s going to be a bit of project but I will of course keep you posted!

6 – I’ve become a member of the Sale Town Partnership group of local businesses which are involved with improving and enhancing Sale which is extremely exciting.  Not quite sure how I’m going to participate as yet, but hopefully will be something to do with Christmas as I LOVE Christmas sooooo much

That’s about all I’ve got to say on what’s next – you know me, I don’t like sitting still for too long!!  Please get in touch if you’ve got any ideas of things you want me to try/get involved in, etc

Things are better in Pairs

By | Uncategorised | 2 Comments

Every fancied personal training but thought it was totally out of your price range?  That’s the myth that I’m trying to dispel – I want to make personal training available to anyone, whatever their budget so I’m introducing the idea of 2:1 or 3:1 training.

I’m sure you will all be fully aware of the benefits of working with a personal trainer, but just in case here’s a few of the reasons why PT’s are worth the money– they pull a programme together which is tailor made to your own personal fitness goals; they push you harder than you would yourself; they make sure that you are doing the exercises correctly; and as you know they’re coming to your house or because you’re meeting them somewhere, they make you stick at a new programme.  Now could you imagine having this within your budget??

My idea is to work with small groups of 2 or 3 people who train together with me once a week using a semi-tailored programme which will be targeted to hit your group goals and then you will individually receive a personalised programme for you to do on your own which is much more specific to each of the members target areas/goals, etc.  Hopefully giving you the best of both worlds so that you are getting active at least twice a week and really focusing hard so you can meet your fitness targets.

If you don’t currently have someone that you are able to workout with and want to get “paired” up with a likeminded exercise buddy, then get in touch!  I can put you down on a list and then contact you when a pair would work.  I would obviously only put people together of similar abilities otherwise that’d be plain wrong!

So I know you’re probably keen on hearing how much this would cost – well here’s the prices for 1 hour sessions (45 min ones are available if that suits you better)

2:1:

1 off – £25 each

5 sessions – £100 each

10 sessions – £180 each

3:1:

1 off – £20 each

5 sessions – £85 each

10 sessions – £150 each

Please get in touch to find out more.  I currently have availability on Monday and Tuesday afternoons
