FEEL GOOD: Bootcamp Pilates
This is a class for the adults! So, although you can't take your little one along, these classes are fantastic for new mums and are safe to do during pregnancy. Using Reformer machines, Bootcamp Pilates provides a highly effective, no-impact, stretching and toning workout. Brilliant for new mamas and mums-to-be thanks to the exercises targeted around your core and pelvic floor. The classes are highly energetic and each offers a different workout accompanied by a fun, high-energy soundtrack to spur you on.
Brilliant for getting that all-important core back into tip-top condition.
Due to the small class size, the trainer is always able to keep a close eye on your form which is essential with many Pilates-based moves.
The classes whizz by leaving no time to get bored or clock watch.
These classes generally are mixed so this is one for the boys as well.
There are classes throughout the day, seven days a week, making it easy to find one to suit your schedule.
Studios across London provide tonnes of different locations to choose from.
The popular weekend classes tend to always get booked-up, so it is important to book in advance to avoid missing out.
£25 for a two class trial
If you are new to Reformer Pilates or indeed pregnant, I highly recommend doing at least 3-4 of the beginner classes first. These really help you to master the key poses and the class pace goes a little slower than the regular classes giving you time to work on your form.
Having started the class four months after having my daughter, Bootcamp Pilates has been amazing at improving my core strength and confidence to get back into regular exercise again. I would definitely recommend these classes to new mums out there wanting to get their post pregnancy bodies back into shape.
