Praise from some of the lovely ladies I work with.
I am very blessed to have been pregnant with Marilena, my second baby girl. And I knew the changes to my body would take time to adjust to but I nonetheless found it hard to feel confident about myself and to feel comfortable in getting out the house and trying to accept those changes.
One of my lovely friends talked to me about Slingfit….and suggested I try it out. I wasn’t certain at first because I didn’t have a proper sling, and Marilena didn’t enjoy being in it. However Aimee reassured me that I need not worry about that and just enjoy my experience there. And I didn’t need to worry! Marilena played happily on the playmats with all the toys whilst I did my exercises. There was no expectation or pressure to use a sling if wanting to participate in Slingfit. And the banter-well there was always plenty and you could guarantee that it was there every week. And the atmosphere is very relaxed even though you’re doing exercise!
As an instructor, Aimee is encouraging, supportive, understanding, funny and welcoming. I know I don’t go there anymore now that I’m back at work and Marilena attends nursery but Aimee has always made me feel welcome to come for one off sessions in the future. Every time I went, I left feeling better about myself and feeling more confident in getting out and about. And what’s more, Aimee, along with my friends, supported me when I decided to break the news to them that I was planning on doing a half marathon! And since then, Aimee has continued to offer support through recommended training plans and words of encouragement. So I would want to say thank you for making me feel welcome at Slingfit, and for boosting my self esteem and giving me the motivation and confidence to take part in the half marathon.
I would highly recommend this session…so if you’re debating whether to give it a go, just try it out on a one off and take it from there.
Aimee’s classes have always supported my running giving me all round strength and allow me to continue my running at six months pregnant! Since becoming pregnant with my second child the FitMums class has given me all the support I need to carry my growing bump and continue doing the things I love: running!
I am 6 months along but with such a strong core I don’t feel heavy or restricted by my bump (besides trying to get my shoes on!).
I’m looking forward to rebuilding my strength post-birth through Aimee’s classes too. I’d recommend anyone try the classes as you can make each session fit to your capabilities.”
Sling fit has been a great weekly session to work on my fitness and posture and to meet other baby wearing mums. My baby seemed to enjoy it with initial looking around the room, followed by sleeping for most sessions. It’s a great way to get post natal mums off the sofa and exercising, without having to put baby in the corner.
I like the Informal nature of class, so we are encouraged talk to other participants. As a first time mum I have learnt lots from other mums experiences and also distracts from exercise fatigue. The small group size is good so you can learn everyone’s names and feel comfortable feeding or nappy changing babies if needed.
I love the relaxed, friendly feel of Aimee’s sessions . It almost makes you forget that you’re actually doing a workout! My legs feel more toned and even though I only attend once a week, I feel like my general energy levels and stamina would be far lower if I didn’t attend (which has been the case when there has been a week without a session).
During school holidays, my 8 & 5 year olds love attending and joining in with the exercises.
I love the social aspect of the sessions and find it makes a real difference to my mood and some days has been the only thing I want to leave the house for!
I would (and often do) highly recommend Sling Fit to anyone and everyone who’ll listen to me! It’s a fab session and I wish it had been around when I had my older 2!
Love it 😍
