Welcome to our Mums Off Duty Home Workout series. You asked for more fitness content on the blog, and I aim to please, so here you are ladies!
I know how hard it is to find the time to work out. There are a million and one other things you need to get done. But the bottom line is, you HAVE to make time to look after your health and fitness. Your health is everything. If you exercise regularly, it has a positive knock-on effect on everything else in your life. Your mental health, your body, your confidence, your self-esteem…the list goes on, and it’s all good.
No babysitter required
In last year’s reader survey, you told me you wanted to exercise but lacked time, money and babysitters. So I’ve been working with Gerhard Boshoff, a personal trainer and owner of fitnessgb.com, to develop a series of free home workout videos created especially for mums looking to get back into exercise. Consider these our gift to you. We want you to feel happy and healthy. No need to go anywhere or find a babysitter. Just find 15 minutes in your day to invest in you.
Please also get involved and join our dedicated Facebook group. It’s a place for us to chat about all things fitness, and to cheer each other on. It’s much more fun doing this kind of thing together, right?
Your safety is paramount – please complete our disclaimer before taking part
You must make sure you are healthy and well before taking part in the workouts. It is so important that you are in the safe zone to start exercising (usually at least three months after giving birth, longer if you had a C-section). If you are unsure, please check with your GP that it is safe for you to start exercising. You must read and complete our disclaimer form here before you start our workouts.
