Low cost gym chain Xercise4Less is aiming to help new and expectant mums to stay in shape by rolling out a range of dedicated services.

Spearheaded by 25-year-old health and fitness executive Sarah Philp – herself a mother to 18-month-old Isaac – the programme will start at the gym company’s head office site in Leeds, before eventually becoming available at all Xercise4Less gyms.

As part of this initiative Sarah, who is qualified in Level 3 Personal Training and has just received her Pre and Post-Natal certificate, has recently launched the Xercise4Mums blog where she offers tips and advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle despite having young children or being pregnant.

Philp is delighted that Xercise4Less has backed her proposal to develop this arm of the business, with the gym chain due to launch classes using baby-in-the-body weight exercises this year across its gyms.

“This is something I am extremely passionate about, as I have faced these challenges personally,” said Philp. “I wanted to launched a service that helped those parents also struggling – both time and resource wise.”

“When it comes to the classes, it’s all about combining exercises with the baby to help with the burn, such as baby-carrier squats, lunges, bench press. Also, what better way to get motivated to do some exercise than to team it with bonding with your baby and not having to find childcare!”

Xercise4Mums is a fortnightly blog which educates readers about the journey from bump to birth to a new post-baby body. It is full of useful advice on how and when to exercise throughout pregnancy, how to prepare for birth, recovering safely post-baby along with tips and tricks on how to create time to exercise once the baby is born.
