Helping keep Shrewsbury mums in shape with Mummyfit classes

We've all heard of putting on some extra baby weight during pregnancy and the well-known phrase "eating for two"! Then after you've given birth, it's often hard to find the time or the will to get fit and lose weight with a tiny baby in tow.

I’m Vicki Card, Mummyfit coordinator and instructor at The Shrewsbury Club, and we are on hand to help you keep looking and feeling your best throughout your pregnancy and after, even when it’s hard and you are exhausted or don’t have a lot of time.

Whether you have just discovered that you are pregnant or you are a new mum, we can now offer you some specially designed fitness classes at The Shrewsbury Club that can support you during these times, with baby too.

We can create you a specially designed programme in our state-of-the-art Shrewsbury gym, to specifically suit your pregnancy trimester or post-natal stage. It will be regularly adapted every four weeks by myself, to make sure you are getting the best possible results.

“I first discovered Mummyfit after doing a search on the internet whilst I was pregnant. There was no one else in the area catering for pre or postnatal ladies. The main attraction was being able to bring your baby (and other children) to the indoor classes. I had already decided to start some form of exercise as soon as possible after giving birth. I started when my daughter was eight weeks old.

“I poppedinto The Shrewsbury Club to enquire about the classes. I was particularly interested in the Bootcamp (though slightly scared too). I left my number and the lovely Vicki called me back and answered all my questions & organised a trial.

“Wow!! Bootcamp was tough, especially when you're unfit like me. However, Vicki is very encouraging and although she pushes you, you only do as much as you can. You are out in all weather's with the buggy, but there is a real sense of camaraderie and it gives the little ones some fresh air. 

“I also do the Spin and Pilates classes, again hard work but great fun. My other daughter also comes to these. There's no drama if your baby cries, needs feeding or changing, you just do it as everyone is in the same boat. Vicki will also help as much as she can whilst still teaching you! 

“I would recommend Mummyfit to any pregnant lady or those with newborns. So glad I have started this and am determined to keep going!!!” – Sam

We can offer over 80 fitness classes a week, including 10 classes that are specifically tailored to pre and post-natal needs, such as Mummyfit Spin, Mummyfit Bootcamp and Mummyfit Core and Stretch and Aqua. The beauty of these post-natal classes is that baby comes too, so you can bond while working out and you get to meet other mummies that are going through the same new baby experiences as you !

You will also receive email advice and support seven-days-a-week, with a healthy tip of the week and an exercise of the month with regular updates via our Mummyfit Facebook page, so you will feel encouraged and never have to feel like you are doing all of this alone.

And after all that working out, you can treat yourself with evening spa pamper nights for all new and old mummies and you can enjoy a 10% discount on food and drink in our on-site restaurant, The Hub.

You can also join in with our annual events and fun days for all the family at The Shrewsbury Club, helping you to feel part of something.

We are now offering Mummyfit membership at a new price, so you and your baby can take advantage of all this this and use the club’s facilities to their full potential. 

The membership is NON-CONTRACT for up to 12 months, and can even be broken down to six months pre and six months post-pregnancy, whatever suits.

We also have a fantastic on-site crèche and as part of your membership you can take five FREE hours of childcare and receive a 5% discount on the hourly crèche rate.

The Shrewsbury Club can help you get back to fighting fit in no time. Just call me on 01743 467755 to discuss Mummyfit.
