MAMS ON THE MOVE

A gentle push in the right direction!

In November 2018, Active Northumberland was awarded a Sport England grant to help new mams get active.

As a new mam, you might be unclear about the type and amount of exercise that is appropriate during and after pregnancy, or about the benefits that exercise can bring. Here at Active Northumberland we are keen to help support and encourage new mams to take part in exercise.

We offer a range of low cost ante natal and post natal 'Mams on the Move' classes which are specially designed for mams-to-be as well as new mams and are supervised, FUN and very sociable!

See below for class timetable, prices and more information about our Mams on the Move classes.

WE WILL BE RUNNING A LIMITED TIMETABLE OF OUTDOOR MAMS ON THE MOVE CLASSES FROM W/C 7TH DECEMBER. PLEASE SEE THE TIMETABLE BELOW FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.

We've put a range of measures in place to help keep you safe:
 
  1. Each class will be limited to 15 women max. The guidelines for outdoor exercise are 30 participants.
  2. We will NOT be using benches and equipment. All work will be body weight exercises. You can bring a water bottle or your own personal hand weights/ resistance bands if you wish.
  3.  We will be operating at a 2 metre separation between all mams using spatial awareness and the markings on the floor outdoors.
  4. You must pre-book via our Active Northumberland App. For more information please see out 'HOW TO BOOK' section below.
  5. Staff have completed the Covid 2020 training and are up-to-date with guidelines.
  6. Please refrain from attending any of our clases if you have experience any of the following symptoms: a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss or change to your smell or taste.
  7. Although we have put the above measures in place, we would also encourage you to bring along your own personal hand sanitiser (although hand sanitiser will be available at each session).
