The activities is a session depend on the type of session and your level of fitness. The different types of sessions are fully explained in our website (more details here).
All sessions run for 1 hour.
When your doctor says its OK, that’s when you are ready to make a commitment to fitness. If you are within 6 months of the birth of your child, you will need your doctors permission before you register as a BCS client. The time to get back to exercise varies depending for each person, largely depending on the type of delivery you had.
As a guide, most women are encouraged to start pelvic floor exercises soon after giving birth, and more vigorous exercise, like a Bay City Stroller session, is possible after about 6 weeks.
Sessions are limited to 10 people per trainer.
Whatever stroller you like as long as the brakes work, the baby can be securely strapped in and the stroller provides protection from the wind, rain or sun.
You will be able to tend to your baby while the other mums continue to work out. The trainer will not be able to watch your baby as they will be focussing on the mothers exercising, but they will be able to help if you need assistance. It is encouraged that if you are breastfeeding, you feed your child prior to the workout.
Wear some suitable training shoes, a supportive bra (even two if you are breastfeeding), bring some water and dress yourself and your baby for the weather. Remember sunscreen!
In most cases a slight shower will not affect the session and we will push on! However if it looks like it will inpracticle or unsafe to run a session we may have to cancel. We will ensure to give you one hours notice if we cancel a session. Most of our locations have a sheltered area where we can continue the workout.
Bookings are essential for all our sessions. You can book online or by calling 1300 882 129.
Husbands and partners are welcome. Be aware though that the exercises will be primarily focussed on the mum’s requirements.
