new mum fitness


we all get that feeling after we've had a baby, we feel we need to get fit shake off that baby belly and get our bodies back again. It's not always easy to find the time or the energy when you've got a baby but there are lots of things you can do which include using your buggy to help you keep fit.

If you head over to the kiddicare blog here http://www.kiddicare.com/blog/2015/06/new-mum-fitness/
there is lots of advice and information on New Mum Fitness including walking and jogging with your pushchair, they can also advice on the types of pushchairs that are best used for these activities.

I myself have been wanting to get fitter for a while now, I've lost all my baby weight now bump is one but I don't feel as fit as before and had previously looked into some classes but just haven't had the time to go.

I do quite a bit of walking everyday and had never thought about incorporating this into a fitness regeime.  Jogging is great way of getting fit and you can take baby and pushchair along too ( it is not reccomended you start jogging until 6 months after birth).  I think it's a great idea and I'm going to be trying this out with the help of kiddicare and www.sportsshoes.com

It's really important that you wear the right running shoes and there is a really simple test called a west test which will show you the right type of running shoes you need.  I have done mine and  you can see my result below.




 Mine told me I need a Support running shoe. As you can see the test is really quick and easy. it shows you exactly how to do it here http://www.sportsshoes.com/support/running_shoes_advice

I would love to hear all your thoughts on new mums fitness and how you get on if try any out, I will be doing a follow up post to let you all know how I get on with my buggy jogging.
