Having time for yourself is a rare thing when you become a mummy! With little ones in your life, simple things like having a shower (or dare we say it – going to the toilet!) can become huge luxuries. So having some time for yourself to exercise probably gets pushed to the bottom of the list of priorities – if it makes it on the list at all! Your fitness however, doesn’t have to be (and shouldn’t be) something you compromise on.

Movers & Shapers in Queen’s Park recently underwent a revamp and launched an exciting new timetable of classes. The new focus at the boutique studio is not just about providing a fantastic fitness experience for pregnant women or those with babies or pre-schoolers; but also to create a safe fitness hub where mums can make local friends, have some ‘guilt free’ time for themselves and boost their wellbeing, both mentally and physically. The studio manager Charlotte has been a Pilates instructor for many years and is passionate about helping women work on their posture and core muscles during pregnancy and/or post-natally.

Fitting in time to exercise as a mum is not only hugely beneficial for re-strengthening your core muscles (which in turn can help with back issues and posture) but is also vital to nurturing your mental health. Exercising can also boost energy levels, and when you’re sleep deprived that can only be a good thing!

The classes are relaxed and friendly aimed at getting you back into shape and increase your fitness during pregnancy or after having your baby. Movers & Shapers now offer safe and effective Pre & Post-natal specific classes targeting those problem areas whilst also reconditioning your core and pelvic floor and the best part… baby comes too!!! Bring your bundle of joy along in their buggy, car seat or use one of Movers & Shapers special baby seats. If he/she decides they need a feed or sleep mid class – don’t worry – you can stop what you’re doing, see to your little one and carry on. You’ll be amongst other mums and within a safe, warm setting.

Whatever your pre & postnatal stage, or even if you’ve been a mum a while now and just want to get fit and make some friends, Movers & Shapers in Queen’s Park has a small group class that will suit your needs and will be delivered by one of their qualified trainers. So give yourself a break from playgroup sing songs or coffee shop catch ups and do something different that really puts your fitness back on that list of priorities.

Whilst the small Group Exercise sessions offered in the Movers & Shapers studios are ideal for helping people achieve their fitness goals sometimes you need that little bit of extra asisstance to get you across the line.

All of our Personal Trainers here at Movers & Shapers are Reps Level 3 qualified or above and most have additional qualifications such as pre/post natal, common orthapaedic conditions, GP referral, suspension training and nutrition to name a few.

Your Personal Trainer will help you define your fitness goals and give you a realistic timeframe in which you could expect to see the results that you are after. They will take into account your current fitness level and also what you enjoy, as well as the areas you feel that you may need additional support. from here they will design a programme based solely around you, they will even plan milestones along the way and carry out regular testing so that you are always confident that you are making progress.

form & function

In your 1-2-1 sessions your Personal Trainer will be right beside you, guiding you through your programme and always ensuring that you are doing the right exercises, the right way and at the right frequency to gently push you ever further towards your goal. They will demonstrate exercises and then watch you perform them so that they can correct any issues with your posture or technique. Learning how to perform exercises correctly reduces your risk of injury but also means you can safely continue your exercises when you are not with your trainer.

efficiency & value

Our Personal Trainers will ensure you get the absolute most out of your workout time, which increases the efficiency of your exercise programme. This is especially beneficial if you have many demands on your time. This combined with the motivation your trainer will provide to keep you going mean that this really is the best avenue for you if you have a specific goal in mind.

Type 30 Minutes 60 Minutes
Single Session £25 £40
4 Session Pack £90 £144

Combo 45 is a 45 minute cardio and body toning session using a variety of gym apparatus but also, importantly, your own body weight.

We alternate our training between High Intensity bursts of activity and traditional circuits. Not only does this ensure that you will never get bored in this session, it also means you'll get your heart rate up whilst strengthening your core muscles at the same time. 

Whilst this session will push you, your trainer will ensure that the pace and intensity is suitable for all participants, the fitter you are the harder you will be pushed, whilst those new to exercise or less fit will be encouraged to pause between stations longer to ensure they are comfortable with their recovery rate.

This is an ideal class to kick-start your day, a quick cardio/strength blast before the day starts in earnest is all you really need to keep you feeling fitter, stronger and leaner.

If you have yet to try Movers & Shapers unique small group training sessions why not take advantage of our 3 sessions for £30 intro offer, if you do then make sure one of your 3 is a Combo45 class, we guarantee you won't be disappointed.
