Another year, another lockdown
Happy new year!
A new year is a great time to reflect on what has worked well and what hasn't so that you can make some tweaks for the next year. I'm not a big fan of setting huge goals, however I do believe in setting positive intentions. In my case, it's about letting go of a number of things that caused stress and anxiety in 2020 and holding onto the many smaller things that made the year so special.
A wonderful yoga teacher I know talks a lot about cultivating a deeper spiritual yoga and meditation practice in the face of external challenges that are outside of our control. I couldn't agree more with this: if we are able to take a step back and gain perspective, calm, kindness and resilience in the current circumstances, then we are all the richer for it regardless of what happens to us.
So this is the mindset that I'm adopting as I head into another period of homeschooling my children. As a result, there will only be one online Buggyfit class each week on Thursdays at 1pm until further notice.
If you would prefer an outdoor 1-1 session, please get in touch as spaces are limited. £40/60 minutes in January.

Lockdown 2.0 update
I'm very sad to announce that outdoor group exercise classes (including Buggyfit and Boxercise) are not allowed to continue during this second lockdown. I know how important Buggyfit in particular is to new mums' mental wellbeing as well as postnatal recovery. So I have created TWO SPECIAL LOCKDOWN 2.0 OFFERS to help mums stay healthy and active during the next FOUR WEEKS:
🔥£40/classes: Unlimited online classes for four weeks which include Buggyfit (postnatal fitness with resistance band), Women's Boxercise, full-body HIIT and HIIT with weights.
🔥£40/1-1 session: Personal Training sessions in the park to work on your specific goals or simply help you get fitter, faster and stronger. You can double up with a friend for a 2-1 online session.
Email me to sign up: email@example.com.
"I can’t recommend Caroline and her sessions enough. I began them approximately three months after my second child, and really wish I’d begun them after the first! Her knowledge, passion and good humour make for fun sessions which are differentiated to provide great levels of challenge, taking into account the needs of each individual. I love getting my sweat on in these classes and am so grateful Caroline is running them virtually during this pandemic." - Deborah Mary, mum of 2

Buggyfit is coming to Ravenscourt Park!
I'm excited to announce that I'll be setting up a regular weekly Buggyfit class in Ravenscourt Park (term-time only), starting Tuesday 6 October at 10-10.45am.
As with my Chiswick classes, this class is suitable for mums who are at least 6 weeks postpartum. You can expect a low-impact, full-body workout that strengthens your pelvic floor and heals any abdominal separation (diastasis recti). Meet other lovely local mums and babies while breathing in fresh air and strengthening your immune system.
"Buggyfit is amazing! I would highly recommend it to any mum. Exercise post pregnancy is a little daunting but Caroline is so knowledgeable and very welcoming. I always leave feeling energised and happy! I really look forward to my weekly outdoor exercise." - Angela, mum of 2

Happy 1st anniversary to Buggyfit Chiswick!
After changing careers and re-training as a personal trainer and pre- and postnatal fitness coach a year ago, I took on a Buggyfit licence in Chiswick. If I had known that ahead of me awaited the wettest winter in years, two failed hernia repair surgeries AND a global pandemic, I may have re-considered. But, the thing that has stood out for me this year is that I FINALLY LOVE MY JOB! That’s not a bad thing to be able to say at the age of 43 :)
For my Buggyfit mums this autumn, we'll be focusing on good breathing and correct posture as these are two areas that will transform your postnatal body - from relieving back pain to healing a diastasis and reducing downward pressure on the pelvic floor.
There are both outdoor and online classes available to suit everyone (term-time only). If this is your first class with me, I'll ask you to complete a health questionnaire so that I can get to know you better.
Boxercise and HIIT (both suitable from 6+ months postpartum) will be back after October half-term as I'm currently recovering from my third umbilical hernia surgery. And from January 2021 there will be a new Forest Bootcamp on Saturday mornings (for mums and dads!).
I'm also hoping to launch a pre-natal class in the near future so watch this space!
"I believe all mums would benefit from buggyfitting after giving birth!" - Joanne, mum of 2
