A walk in the park?
Not quite with Baby Boot Camp.
words | Nicola Eastwood
Every Monday and Wednesday morning during the summer months anyone visiting Millbrook Park could be fooled into thinking they were somewhere in the Hollywood Hills or some similar celebrity residence.
The latest trend in Mummy fitness exercise regimes, favoured by the likes of Madonna and Anna Friel has come to Jersey and is proving extremely popular with Island mums. Baby Boot Camp is the brainchild of Boot Camp Jersey founder Hugh Jones and the interactive classes are run by experienced fitness trainers Rachael Tanguy and Claire Dupoy.
The buggy based classes combine a mix of strength training and cardiovascular exercises, which mums and babies can enjoy together. The sessions are varied, catering for all fitness levels and this trendy way of toning up offers mums with little ones from six weeks to pre-school a completely new exercise experience.
The team is really flexible and all sessions are interchangeable so if you’ve had a bad night’s sleep or your baby is unwell it’s no problem, simply miss a week and come along to another session.
Bad weather doesn’t provide an excuse either, mums are asked to bring waterproof buggy covers and during the winter months, sessions take place at St Peter’s Community Centre where working out to music adds to the fun! If your baby is asleep, needs feeding or changing it’s not a problem, the instructors will work around you and your babies’ needs.
All Baby Boot Camp instructors are fully qualified in both pre and post natal fitness and will guide you safely and effectively during the workout sessions.
Join up – Free taster session
It really couldn’t be simpler to get started, your baby must be at least six weeks old and you must have had your post natal check up, then just turn up for a FREE 'taster' session. Baby Boot Camp is a great way to beat the baby blues and get fit. The fun filled workout helps to:
– Burn off excess ‘baby fat’
– Improve core stability
– Tighten and tone muscles, including the pelvic floor!
all of which will help you look and feel like a truly yummy mummy! If you’d like to know a little more email
