Motherhood is perhaps the biggest lifestyle change that any woman can go through – and founder of Buggy Bootcamp, Carly Steggles, wants to use exercise as a means to support that change.
“Buggy Bootcamp is much more than just a fitness class with coffee meet-ups, seminars and nights out. We believe that a happy, healthy, supported Mum is a good Mum and have created a group that fosters this belief. Everyone is really welcoming and our emphasis is on the mental and wellbeing benefits of exercising and getting out of the house for movement, adult connection and fresh air during those first few months,” says Carly.
Hour-long classes run down at the quieter Queenscliff end of Manly Beachfront and in the secluded Aitken Reserve, with daily buggy friendly options at 8.15am, 8.45am and/or 9.30am as well as baby-free 7pm sessions three times a week.
There is no need to book-in, meaning the classes are suitable for new Mums, who might not always make it out of the front door when they intended to.
Carly says, “We recommend getting a full check-up with a post-natal physio before starting exercise again – if nothing else just to have the peace of mind that you are not doing yourself any harm so that you can exercise worry free. Those interested in starting Buggy Bootcamp receive an optional discounted assessment with a local physio.”
