FITNESS FOR MUMS.

The Fitness for Mums (F4M) program at Heart Body & Soul offers specialised small group fitness training for mums/women of all ages. The program has been designed by a mum, for mums and run by mums. We want you to:

Fall in LOVE with exercise
­Move each day and celebrate what your AMAZING body can do
Feel energised, alert, confident, happy & AWESOME
Take time out for YOU

BECAUSE…

A happy mum = happy family = happy home

The F4M program now offers a variety of different classes to suit mums/women at different stages & ages.

Core Foundations**
CardioBox*
Strength & Tone* **
Metafit*

ALL classes will cater to individual injury or health conditions (including women’s health issues) and we work closely with women’s & pelvic health and musculoskeletal physiotherapists to ensure we provide safe and sustainable exercise options. *A restored core + pelvic floor is required before progression to CardioBox, Metafit and Strength & Tone.

Based in Glen Iris, Heart Body & Soul is passionate about helping you achieve and maintain strength and fitness for life. Following a Safe Return to Exercise program means we can adapt exercise around your individual needs in a safe and effective way – dodgy knees, pelvic floor weakness, sore lower backs, hip pain – all can and will be looked after.

We want Heart Body & Soul Mums like you to lead a happy and healthy life, to rebuild and stay strong from the inside out, take some time out for yourself to move and find your groove!

Our aim is to “put a spring back in your step…..and a smile on your face”

What to expect?

Core Foundations** – 45 min

This is the perfect place to start or rekindle your love affair with exercise. The aim of F4M Core Foundations is to build a solid foundation before we put up the fancy house! Working from the inside out we will improve the function and strength of your inner core – abdominal wall, pelvic floor, diaphragm and multifidus – whilst creating a balanced, aligned body.

Using basic equipment and bodyweight to perform simple functional exercises to stretch out and strengthen muscles shortened and/or weakened as a result of pregnancy, poor posture, work habits and lifestyle. Add to this cardio exercises and you have a fantastic well rounded workout.

To ensure we get off on the right foot, we start with an initial 60-minute consultation where we will discuss your exercise & medical history, lifestyle, discuss & set goals, assess you for abdominal separation, pelvic floor function, posture, movement and breathing pattern. A referral to our partner women’s health physiotherapists is also recommended.

**Currently offered as a personal training option only.

CardioBox* – 45 min

This dynamic class will get your heart rate up and have you break into a sweaty smile in no time. Combining circuit training, using high reps, light work (no contact or heavy bags – we punch into focus pads) and cardio intervals. This is a low impact but high energy class. All equipment is provided. *A restored core + pelvic floor is required.

Metafit* – 30 min

This is a fast paced, high-energy 30-minute session. Using only bodyweight exercises – squats, lunges, push-ups, planks, burpees and variations of all – in a high intensity interval training (HIIT) format. No choreography, no fancy dance moves, no keeping in time with the music or instructor – just functional whole body exercises done in short bursts, short rest and high intensity.

9am metafit sessions are specifically modified to be suitable for you if you have a good awareness and function of your pelvic floor and core. Low-impact exercise options are provided so that you can work at your own fitness level and step it up when ready.

Strength & Tone** – 45 min

This is a slower paced session where the emphasis is on technique and building strength using a combination of equipment and bodyweight. We will work through compound, functional movement patterns, using slower, controlled movements, heavier weights, lower reps. Building lean muscle, strong bones and efficient movements patterns.

*A restored core + pelvic floor is required.

**Currently offered as a personal training option only.
