Welcome to Kimmyfitness. My world of my work combined with my life= mummy fitness. You will find lots of workout videos that you can safely do through out your pregnancy and post pregnancy too. There are step by step workout videos and short clips of workouts you can do. Please feel free to comment, share and subscribe!

Here are 4 Post pregnancy core exercises with options.
You can do these exercises before your 6 weeks post birth check to help start strengthening and rebuilding your core. After birth our core is very weak and requires specific training to help rebuild and repair in the correct way. These are 4 exercises that can help, however you need to be cautious and concentrate whilst doing them. Think about your breathe and engaging in your abdominals(which feels very different at this stage however you will feel and notice the change) PLEASE DO NOT ignore any abnormal pain! And do let your midwife know you have started core repair work!

Do be careful training #postpregnancy because our body still continues to have the relaxin hormone in, which makes our bodies very flexible and our joints quite loose. This is why I would advise no heavy lifting within the first few months especially if you are new to exercise! You know your body so please go with the options that are given if you need to! Remember we have all started from the beginning

In the last two exercises feel free to place your foot down if you need too - then aim to keep your foot off the ground through the exercise. Balance work is so amazing for your tummy! 

If you are ready to start my MummyFitness postpregnancy 6 month exercise program please get in touch;

  • The video shows what is available to women in the area, including joining a netball team, boxing, roller skating or buggy pushing. Tees Valley Sport’s aim is to inject new life into the This Girl Can campaign, that swept through the country last year.
  • Victoria Auton, coaching development manager at Tees Valley Sport, said: “Following This Girl Can, we wanted to develop a local campaign. 
  • “We wanted to raise awareness in women’s sport and to encourage more women to go into sport no matter what their size. “The video covers all ages and abilities. "It turned into a much bigger video than we imagined. “The message we wanted to get across was the amount of activities that go on. “It’s moving away from your traditional sports as well, and finding sports for the modern woman, like buggy pushing and roller skating!”
  • Tees Valley Sport worked closely with groups of women who have suffered from domestic violence or just low confidence to prove that anyone can find an activity they enjoy. The video shows women from across Teesside exercising in ways that feel comfortable for them. 
  • Netball coach Faye Summerhill appears at the beginning of the video. She said: “We got involved particularly because of the bad press the area is getting at the moment. “I don’t think there’s enough about the good stuff going on, it’s all negative. “The more women that get into sport, the more positive it will be for the area.”

#IWD2017 on ACTiV8TV Women take the lead in Manchester .@GreaterSport supporting .@ReachCoaches .@sportscoachUK

18:00 Coaxing for School Gate mums, Slimming Clubs, Hairdressers & H.E.

Greater Manchester Sport supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women more ACTIVE!

Women take the lead in Greater Manchester

Between January to March 2016 GreaterSport developed and delivered a successful 3 month pilot, which saw 82 females get active with their family and friends at at parks, community centres and other venues that they normally go to in their everyday lives. 12 of these participants were also mentored and up skilled to be able to deliver the sessions, making them sustainable.

Research identifies that 1.7 million fewer women than men in England take part in sport or physical activity for the required 1 x 30 minutes per week. It highlights that factors to overcome this, and get more females active are; to tailor the activity to the group in respect of venue and time, focus on the social element, and ensure that the session leaders reflect the demographic of the group.

Making a change - The project aimed to 'Identify passionate and enthusiastic female coaches, to inspire and motivate females not only get active but to take the lead as well, in their own social setting'. We worked with:

Passionate Female coaches already delivering in Greater Manchester to work as mentors.
Already established female social groups based around four areas: School Gate mums, Slimming Clubs, Hairdressers and Higher Education.

A video documentary series developed by Shantel Rizzotto @shantelrizzotto - featuring female sports officials - coaches and umpires..
Since the dawn of professional sports, women have been missing not only as referees, but from every aspect of the game. On the playing field, on the sidelines as coaches, in the announcement booth and in the stands. Times have changed. Nearly half the fans of professional sports in the USA are now women. A cultural shift is happening. The first set of webisodes will feature female officials. The overall goals are to break down gender barriers by showing women officials in action and inspire young females to become officials.

Support WomenInSportDOC.com

For the past year, WomenInSportDOC has conducted interviews with  officials both male and female. Gaining a strong understanding of what it takes to be an official across several sports (football, basketball, soccer, field hockey, ice hockey, and volleyball) and at all levels from high school to professional. They also attended the Sports Officiating Summit presented by the USA's National Association of Sports Officials (NASO) in July. It’s the primary event that addresses critical topics impacting all aspects of the officiating industry. At the summit, officials, administrators, sport vendors, and affiliates expressed much interest in the webseries, particularly in how it can be used to help recruit and retain officials.

#ACTIV8TV - #RUNNING problems from Achilles Tendonitis? - exercise via @SundialClinic

12:00 Great stretches for running & better movement

The Sundial Clininc supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help getmore women more ACTIVE!
(This article is for guidance only. You should also seek medical advcie if you have concerns about injury.)

Stretching may help reduce injury and improve flexibility in runners. Most runners include stretches in their routine. It is important to prepare your muscles for a run by gently warming up and keep flexible by doing these stretches. These exercises put together by our physio can help stretch the main running muscles.

These stretches should be held for over 30 seconds – don’t rush. Aim to do these exercises once a day although doing them twice a day is three times as beneficial. Stay relaxed and breathe out as you develop the stretch. Develop the stretches gently to avoid overstretching and injuring yourself.

The 3 stretches we recommend for running are: hamstring, hip flexor and calf and here is how to do these.

You can download the stretches for running for free here VBHM stretches

Hamstring stretch

Dynamic hamstring stretch

Sets three each side

Hold 30 to 60 seconds

  • straighten one leg, grabbed the back of your thigh and target your leg towards your chest until you feel a gentle stretch.
  • Bend your leg at the knee slightly coming off the stretch
  • repeat by pushing your heel towards the ceiling
  • alternate your legs

Note: avoid kicking violently or arching your lower back

If it’s shaking your doing it well!

Hip flexor stretch

Hip flexor stretch

Sets three each side

Hold 30 to 60 seconds

  • hands on hips, tuck your tailbone under to flat on your back
  • lean forwards while maintaining a straight posture and keeping your head up
  • avoid arching your low back or letting your hips roll forwards

Note: do it next to a wall if you feel out of balance

Calf stretch

Hip flexor stretch

Sets three each side
