Training for New Mums and Mums to Be
Awarded the CYQ level 3 award in adapting exercise for ante natal and post natal clients and Burrell Education Pregnancy and post natal certificate, I can help you keep fit and active throughout your pregnancy and beyond, ensuring that fitness remains a fun part of your routine.
Mums to be
As long as your doctor or healthcare provider hasn't indicated otherwise, exercising whilst pregnant is completely safe and often recommended.There are so many benefits to keeping fit whilst pregnant from helping to prepare your body for labour to improving your mood and getting back into shape once baby arrives.
Working out what exercise is right for you can be confusing...which is where I come in! I will meet with you to discuss your needs and pre-pregnancy training before designing a bespoke programme which will evolve with you as your baby grows.
Getting back into shape once baby arrives
Once you doctor or healthcare professional has approved your return to activity (usually 6 weeks after a vaginal birth and 12 weeks after a caesarean) I can help you to safely rebuild your fitness.
I provide tailor-made one to one or small group sessions for new mums with a focus on reconnecting to your pelvic floor, rebuilding your core and safely rebuilding cardio fitness and strength. Baby holding is an added bonus!

I enjoy being active and my doctor recommended to keep doing sports throughout my pregnancy. I was running, swimming and hiking up till the very last days and I had a very smooth pregnancy.
However after giving birth to my daughter, I could feel that my body needed a complete reset! I had gained and lost a lot of weight in less than a year, my core was completely gone, and I didn't know where to start...
A friend told me about Lu, and 2 months after giving birth to Lana I had my first session with her. Lu understood my needs straight away. She knew my head wanted to do more, but my body needed some time to rebuild strength. I am now seeing Lu once a week, and my fitness has improved so quickly! Lu also prepared a training plan for me to do 2/3 times a week on my own on top of the sessions with her. Every session, Lu pushes me a little more and she always insists on good technique to avoid injuries. After every session I am more motivated than ever!
Lu makes exercising fun and challenging and I can only strongly recommend her to every mum and mum-to-be.
As a former sportsperson, I was looking to get back into fitness as soon as possible after giving birth. I was lucky enough to have found Emi and Lu’s “Mum’s That Work Out “ classes, in which you can bring your baby(!)
Emi and Lu are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in postpartum fitness and helped me understand my body’s dramatic changes and limitations after having been pregnant and given birth. They helped me gradually build back my strength and fitness level to my pre-pregnancy days. I highly recommend their classes to anyone wanting to get (back) into fitness.
