Mommy and Baby Classes - Guelph
Here at Fit & Eats our aim is to make exercise as accessible and enjoyable as possible. When you are a mom or mama to be, exercise can be a little daunting. Let me take the challenge out of the equation so you can focus on being the best mama you can be!
There are some many changes the the body goes through when carrying a baby to term and delivering a baby whether is be via c-section or vaginal delivery. Regular fitness classes do not account for these changes and assume every one is the same. It is my hope to make your pregnancy workouts and your return to fitness as smooth as possible. Try out some of our mommy and baby fitness classes or if you want a more personal approach, look in to personal training.
