Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect a session to look like?
Sessions are 1 hour and consist of coaching safe and efficient movement patterns and exercises specific to you and your goals. I will encourage you each session to ensure you are progressing - no matter what your goal. Having a good trainer helps maximise your training potential by ensuring you follow a specific programme, move with safe and effective technique, and of course, having a strong support network guiding you every step of the way.
Where do you offer personal training?
I am based at PureGym Oxford Templars, Oxford OX4 3JP. I also offer home sessions for clients in the local area.
Where and when are your BuggyFit classes?
I offer X2 BuggyFit classes per week at Florence Park, Cornwallis Rd, Oxford OX4 3PW. Classes run on:
- Tuesdays at 10:30-11:30
- Thursdays at 13:30-14:30
Booking is essential. Please book at least 30 minutes before the class starts.
Where and when are your MummaFit classes?
MummaFit classes are in the planning stages and will be coming to Oxford in the near future!
I'm not fit and have little exercise experience, can I still do the classes?
Yes of course! Classes are designed to suit all fitness levels & abilities, exercises can be modified to ensure safe & effective movement. Classes provides a non-judgement environment where you can progress at your own pace.
I have Diastasis Recti (DR), can I still participate in classes and/or Personal Training?
Yes you can. Resuming exercise with DR can be daunting but feel assured that classes & programmes are specifically designed to restore & strengthen your core after pregnancy & DR.
When can I start classes after having my baby?
The recommended guidelines are 6 weeks after a vaginal delivery or once you've had your 6-week postnatal check-up & 12 weeks after a caesarean with GP clearance.
I have a pelvic organ prolapse (POP), can I still participate in classes and/or Personal Training?
We strongly advise Mum's who think they may have POP to seek GP or a women's health physiotherapist for a medical diagnosis. Classes are safe if you have mild-moderate prolapse.
What happens if my baby cries?
Your baby may cry or be unhappy at some point during class, we don't expect babies to be silent throughout so please don't panic. Feel free to feed, change, or play with your little one if that's what they need!
My GP doesn't offer a 6 week check/clearance, what can I do?
Not all GP's provide a 6-8 week check. You will need to sign a health declaration stating you are fit, healthy & the number of weeks postnatal you are. You must submit any health concerns before exercise can take place. Please note you take full responsibility for your health before starting MummaFit classes and/or Personal Training.
