Buggy Runners FAQ
“When can I start?” – If you are an new Mother, we advise you to join us after your six week check, for a natural birth, and eight week check for a cesarean. If you are in any doubt, please consult your doctor before you resume any sort of exercise.
“What kind of buggy do I need?” – Any buggy or pushchair as long as it is in working order. If your baby is under 6 months we advise you use a rolled up towel or blanket to put around their heads for support. A head support can also be used. If you are not sure what we mean, come along and we can show you. We advise bringing a pump for those big tyres and if you would like some advice on pushchairs, please do not hesitate to contact me.
“Do I have to run?” – We do not advise running immediately after the birth of your baby. It is important to start exercising slowly and we suggest you begin by power walking. If running is not your thing – that is still ok, just keep power walking.
“What if it is raining?” – Buggy Runners takes place in all weathers – rain or shine. The only circumstances we may have to cancel is heavy snow or gale force winds. If we do have to cancel a class we will put the details up on the website.
“Do I need equipment?” – Just a towel, blanket or groundsheet for all those abdominal exercises!
“How old should my baby be?” – We accept all ages, shapes and sizes!
