FitBack & Bumps
FitBack & Bumps is an educational exercise programme for a fitter and healthier pregnancy and for a gradual return into exercise after you have had your baby.
FitBack & Bumps is a unique ante and post natal exercise class. It is unique in that it is led by a specially-trained Chartered Physiotherapist to ensure the safest levels of exercise for you and your baby. The Physiotherapist is also there to offer advice and information to equip you with the tools to continue exercising safely and confidently after the course has finished.
Our team has special training in ante/post natal exercise to deliver a safe and effective programme that helps you maintain fitness during pregnancy and restore it as a new mum!
You don't have to be a Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing member to do FitBack & Bumps, however our members do receive an exclusive discount.
FitBack & Bumps is held at our Fitness & Wellbeing Centres or at our hospital sites, in various locations across the country. You don't have to be a member of our gyms to attend the classes or 1-2-1 sessions but members do get a discount off the service.
Antenatal & Postnatal courses
There are 2 courses, antenatal and postnatal. Both consist of 4, one-hour sessions. Each session begins with a 15-minute information and education session followed by 45 minutes of specially designed exercises.
After the classes you will receive an exercise pack, consisting of an educational booklet and exercise cards so you can continue your exercises at home or at the gym. The classes are small, usually between 4 - 6 participants, meaning the physiotherapist has time to see you individually during the session.
Classes give you a chance to socialise with other Mums-to-be or new mums and share your experiences.
You can also book a one-to-one session with the physiotherapist.
