    Creating and Looking After Your Healthy Post Natal Body

    You may remember my last post about Healthy Post Natal Body Review. I did a quick halfway through update a few months ago but I thought I would give you an update on how I got on at the end of the programme! First a quick bit about the programme itself. Healthy Post Natal Body was founded to help mums, like me, to become more confident in their bodies by giving them fitness plans and advice to get their health back! It doesn’t focus on weight loss or getting your ‘pre baby’ body back. Its instead all about achieving a healthy body and feeling confident yourself after having a baby.…

    Healthy Post Natal Fitness for Busy Mums – 3 Month Update!

    We all know how difficult it is to keep fit when you’re a mum. The last thing I wanted to do when I had given birth was think about doing a workout. I have always enjoyed keeping fit and continued to do Zumba and Yoga right through both pregnancies, but it took me a while to get back into it once baby came along! I have spent a while looking for the perfect fitness routine that’s easy to do with children but that also doesn’t take ages to set up and actually do. When you’re a parent you need a workout that’s ready when you are, ready when you can…

    15 Minute Leg Workout for Busy Mums

    We all know that our time is precious, and you need to be concentrating your efforts and time on things like family and work. However, your health and wellbeing are important too. If you’re ‘out of action’ then what will everyone else do? When working out and keeping fit, we busy mums don’t always have the time to get to a fitness class or hit the gym so many of us choose to workout at home. I know I certainly do. This doesn’t mean we have to compromise on the type of workout we do or the results we can achieve. You can skip straight to the Workout I know…

    6 Tips to Locate the Best Loughborough Personal Trainer

    When it comes to finding a personal trainer, it can be hard and frustrating. This is because you are entrusting a stranger to help you get fit and begin to live a healthier lifestyle. Technology is another cause of this failure in trusting people and finding the right person for the job. This is because there are so many malicious people on the internet preying on innocent people who place their trust in them. In order to be on the safe side and to avoid all of this, it is important to have a well-detailed background check on the person before calling him or her your personal trainer. If you…

    Increase Your Workout Results with Multipower

    It’s no secret that we like to keep fit. I have come to a bit of a standstill with my fitness since having Lottie but I’m looking to start going to a yoga class and working out again as soon as I feel a bit more ‘normal’! Mario works out 5 days a week and is a keen runner who has recently started using products to get the most out of his workouts and runs. We were asked by the European market leader in sports food, Multipower, if we would like to try out and feature some of their products so Mario was keen to do so as we have…

    A Little Bit About My Blog

    A little while ago I decided to start taking my blogging more seriously and Mario designed me a lovely new site to go alongside what I wanted to do. I have been blogging since September 2014 however my posting was few and far between and I certainly didn’t use social media in the way that I should be doing. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I realised that by putting in just a small amount of effort would actually make a huge difference to what I was doing. Since then I have been a lot more consistent with my writing, working with bigger and bigger brands and spending…
