If you’re a new mum it can be difficult to find the time to workout. But you don’t have to hire a babysitter to regain your fitness after pregnancy. There are many healthy, low impact and fun exercises you can do with your baby that will help you tone your muscles, lose weight and just have fun!
Here are some ideas to help you get moving with your bub.
Go for a group walk – Set a time each week to go for a long walk outside with other mothers or friends. If you commit to this group exercise, you’re more likely to take part and less likely to make excuses!
Walk around with your baby – You can tone your arms and get a good workout by simply walking around the house with your baby. It sounds simple, and it is! You can burn additional calories while working your arm and core muscles at the same time.
Dance with your baby – Put on your favourite tune and have a gentle dance with your baby. This will provide you with a light cardiovascular workout while having some fun too. You may even find this simple exercise helps lift your mood, particularly if you are feeling tired and stressed.
Hire a personal trainer – Most trainers are more than happy to help you develop a workout that incorporates you and your baby.
So, what are you waiting for? Get moving with your baby today!
