Whether you’re in Canberra or joining a virtual class Bump It Up Fitness offers

Postnatal Exercise Classes for all Shapes, Sizes & Fitness Levels

 

PRE NATAL FITNESS

We understand how your body is changing as your baby grows and we also know that you still want a great workout. Our classes build your strength for labour and childbirth. And we take into account the pelvic floor issues, injuries and joint conditions that you may have as a pregnant woman, and give you personalised modifications to keep you safe. All of our classes are run through Zoom so you can safely work out at home or face to face at our private training studio in Mitchell, Canberra.

POST NATAL FITNESS

After your baby is born, you may feel pressure to “get your body back.” At Bump It Up, we don’t believe your body ever left! Rather than rushing you back to full strength and risking injury, we help you to build your body from the inside out through amazing workouts with modifications for your particular circumstances. These classes give you the strength you need to manage your new routines and sleepless nights. Our classes are a great place to meet other new mums and gain a support network.

    Q Can I start at any stage during pregnancy?

    As our classes are higher intensity, we need to get you started before you hit 30 weeks of pregnancy.

    Q Can I attend just one session per week?

    We need you to regularly attend 2 classes per week while you are pregnant (it is ok to miss a week here or there due to illness or travel).
    With the hormone relaxin in your system, you are at a much higher risk of injury. Sporadic exercise when you're not pregnant is bad enough but when you're pregnant it again increases your risk of injury significantly.
    For postnatal ladies, we have options to attend 1, 2, 3 or unlimited sessions per week. The most popular is 3 times per week.

    Q What can I expect to do in a Bump It Up pregnancy class?

    Our classes are a mix of cardio (think aerobics, boxing, dance and step classes) and resistance training (like squats, upper body weights, core and pelvic floor work plus stretching) conducted predominantly on the fitball to ensure that your pelvic floor and uterine ligaments aren't being damaged by high impact training. The classes are a little more vigorous than your standard pregnancy yoga/pilates classes, but they are taught so that you can take it easy if you're not feeling great or are new to exercise, or you can take the intensity up a notch if you are super fit and feeling great.

    Q Are your classes only for pregnant women?

    Absolutely not. We offer classes for both pregnancy specific (which are also very beneficial for the postpartum woman to rebuild her core from the inside out) and postnatal specific. Our trainers are pre and postnatal qualified so even if you attend one of our postnatal classes during pregnancy, we can modify all the exercises to make them appropriate to your needs.
