Hi ya I am Lizzie and I have been working in the fitness industry since 1998 and have always loved what I do. After I fell pregnant in 2010 I went looking for a specific antenatal exercise class but unfortunatly found nothing available, so after extensive research I developed an evolving exercise regime that allowed me to continue teaching my high energy classes until 7 months.
It was then I realised this was something that was needed and I wanted to help other mums to be as well. I trained and passed Level 3 NVQ courses in Ante and Post Natal Exercise and joined the Guild of Pregnancy and Postnatal Exercise Instructors. I then developed and launched the original Ante Natal Fit Mummy classes in 2011 which was followed closely by postnatal classes with babies which both are still going strong today and I have had the pleasure of training so many wonderful mummies over the years
I am very proud of Fit Mummy, and happy that I can help other pregnant and postnatal ladies understand what their bodies are capable of doing and show them how to stay healthy and strong throughout pregnancy and after birth. This is such a special time for a mummy and baby and a time where ladies feel most vulnerable and aware of their bodies and want to make sure that everything they are doing is right for baby. The aim of Fit Mummy is to help build confidence and strength in the body as baby grows to cope with delivering baby into the world and have the endurance to enjoy them when they are here.
Enjoy! It is the best thing I ever did
Sarah qualified in 1997 to teach exercise to music since then she has progressed to teach step, aqua, Bodyjam, Bodycombat, freestyle fitness yoga, post & ante natal and Pilates.
She has been teaching Pilates for 9 years and currently teaches in the Crawley area. She loves teaching all her classes & finds it truly rewarding.
I fell pregnant with my first child and realised I wanted to continue exercising so I booked on to the post & antenatal exercise to music course and taught all my classes (including Bodycombat) until 39 weeks. Two beautiful little girls and two natural births later & I’m now able to pass on my knowledge to new Mums & Mums to be. Having a baby doesn’t mean you have to stop exercising & looking after yourself. We all need a bit of me time.
“During pregnancy our bodies are put under immense stress and strain. Our posture, joints and muscles can change dramatically as our baby grows, causing misalignment and pain in various parts of our bodies. Post natal Pilates is designed to reconnect with and re educate your body, helping you to heal and return to a stronger, leaner and fitter you”.
Ingrid’s sessions will concentrate on reconnecting your breathing to your pelvic floor, and strengthening deep core muscles as well as toning the rest of the body.
