The main problem for any mother with a newborn child is the lack of free time. The child demands not to be left unattended for even a minute, so finding time for something abstract, albeit vital, is unrealistic. Or not? The technique of fitness training with a child as a payload is not new, but look how many different exercises these ladies have mastered! And don’t forget about the smiles of the kids.
Classes are held outdoors, which allows them to replace the traditional walk with a baby in a stroller. The sun, grass, friendly atmosphere, the opportunity to exchange a few words with friends, and all this without losing control over what the child is doing. But instead of a passive pastime, women actively train their bodies that have become soft and weakened during pregnancy. And they intensively cope with the symptoms of postpartum depression – occupational therapy helps not from such a misfortune.
The purpose of training is not just to return to its former physical form. During pregnancy, you get used to a lot and need to catch up, for example, to re-learn the skills of collective communication and work skills. Instead of hard and intense exercises, the focus is on simple gymnastics with weights to restore posture, normalize the work of the hip girdle, and improve tone. Plus, this is collective action – instead of slowly going crazy among diapers, and nipples, mothers remain in society and do not degrade.
Moms save on babysitters, gym memberships, and equipment. A healthy child eats well and gains weight day by day – you lift it several times and the load is already felt. And you don’t need to invent anything, just take the baby in your arms and start to squat, do inclinations, lifts, etc. Even a stroller will be a good help, although it does not look like sports equipment at all.
It’s hard to imagine how you can fully train when you have a baby and a 3-year-old baby in your arms? Perhaps, but that’s what mothers do. They spend time with their children and along the way improve their physical fitness, restoring their figure and health. There are benefits to this pastime for children as well. The smallest enjoy the activity and fuss around them, older children learn to walk and run among their peers. This is not a traditional sandbox, there are different conditions, new impressions, and a lot of positives. And if everyone is happy, then what more could you want?
