1. How do I join the Classes?

Sign up here to become a Member.

As a member you will be able to access the Members Area, where you will find complete instructions on how to join the classes.  All you need is a smart phone, laptop, tablet or smart TV. Easy!

No need to book for a class. Just turn up, log in, click on JOIN CLASS and off you go! Just make sure you have completed the medical form before your first class. this is MANDATORY.

 

2. I had my children years ago, can I still join?

Yes! Once a mummy, always a mummy! We welcome every mummy, no matter your age or your children's ages.

 

We'll also welcome you with open arms if you don't have children, it's not an essential (!) our goal is to get our lovely ladies fit, healthy and happy.

3. I can't find child care

No problem!

 

Working out from home makes life easier. Choose a class when they're busy doing homework, asleep, playing or you might find they like to watch! Please note that our exercises are designed for adult women, not children.

4. I'm new to exercise, will I be ok?

Yes! All classes are catered to the attendees abilities, exercises will have a number of variations, easy, intermediate and expert.

 

You choose the level that suits you best, or the instructor will suggest which version you should try.  If you've never exercised before then start with the beginner level and we will build up gradually and increase a little bit week by week. 

5. I'm an experienced exerciser, will the group classes be too easy?

The group classes are tailored to everyone in the class, variations will be shown for each exercise at a beginner, intermediate and advanced level. 

 

You choose the level that you feel you should be working at. There is always scope for you to engage your core more strongly, hold a pose for a few extra seconds or jump higher. 

6. I'm categorised as 'high risk' for my pregnancy

You can still attend classes ONLY if you have gained and provided us with written consent from your Doctor or Midwife. Please email gemma@mummymaintenanceproject.com 24 hours before your class.

7. How long after birth do I have to wait before I can exercise or have a massage?

The standard guideline is 6 weeks for natural births, I recommend waiting until your Doctor signs you off and you have stopped bleeding completely. 

 

For c-sections, please wait 8-12 weeks and get consent from your Doctor that you are healed enough to exercise. Please, please, please do NOT RUSH back in to exercise after childbirth, your body needs time to heal internally.

8. Do I need to have any equipment to do your sessions?

Just yourself, suitable clothes and trainers for your exercise class and a drink of water. You may also want to have a little towel handy in case you get a little warm and need to mop your brow!

9. What if my little one needs attention during my class?

You are welcome to tend to your children during a class. I'd recommend that you can focus and join in with the whole class, missing a warm up can be dangerous and isn't recommended.

 

If you miss a big chunk then it is sometimes best to take the next class instead.

10. Do you only help women?

At the current time, The Mummy Maintenance Project is focussed solely on Women. We do intend to launch a wider LIVE class offering to Men on our sister platform Stream Fitness later in the year.

 

We do however offer recorded 4 week plans that Men can subscribe to.

 

Please email gemma@mummymaintenanceproject.com to purchase.
