A pre & postnatal low impact exercise class for all mums and mums to be
This activity is usually led by Marianna - PT and pre & postnatal exercise specialist
1 month - 5 years
Don't be fooled. Low impact doesn't mean we don't work hard! It just means we avoid movements that could be unhelpful to our core and pelvic floors.
MPOWERED MUMS is run by Marianna, founder of MPOWERED FITNESS, wife to Nick and mum to Jesse. She works as a personal trainer and pre & postnatal exercise specialist in Manchester.
From Marianna: "I was previously a keen Crossfitter and someone who was determined to 'bounce back' to normal post-baby, but I was naive and ended up with pelvic organ prolapse. Although challenging, it was the prolapse that lead me to becoming a pre and postnatal coach, now determined that mums would be offered exercise for increased strength and overall fitness in a way that aided their postnatal recovery and protected their pelvic floors. I'm a much better and empathetic coach because of what I've been through."
MPOWERED MUMS is a small and friendly class where there is time to chat before and after the workout, which is approx 45 minutes long.
Wear something suitable for exercise and have water available.
If you have light dumbbells and a pilates mat we can incorporate these in the class, but no equipment is necessary to partake.
MPOWERED FITNESS Manchester has partnered with Happity to take bookings. Payments are processed securely by Stripe, the market-leading payment processor. Read more
This is a place to feel encouraged, refreshed and empowered. As a new mother herself, Marianna, your personal trainer and postnatal coach offers a workout that is delivered with expertise, the most up to date research and an empathetic ear. Classes are delivered via Zoom so your coach can advise and modify as necessary. Postnatal issues such as diastasis recti (split abdominals) and pelvic floor dysfunction (incontience, prolapse) are accommodated with breathing, core and kegal exercises. Marianna herself has pelvic organ prolapse and has navigated the journey back to strength training and running. The low impact approach provides a workout that will improve heart health and muscle tone, address pre and postnatal issues, aid weight loss and stress relief. The aim is that you finish the class feeling empowered to pursue your ongoing fitness goals, having had fun along the way. You'll be added to an online private Facebook group for additional support, connection and recordings of the workouts. The exercise class runs for 40-45 mins, with chat either side to connect with other mums. The workouts are recorded but the chats remain confidential. You'll need to have the all clear from your GP check and complete a questionnaire before participating. Time to #feelmpowered !!
