Whatever your level of fitness, or stage in motherhood, KeepFitMammy is here to help you be the best you can.
Although I’ve always exercised to a high standard, I found it difficult to stay motivated when I became pregnant last year. Without the thrill of pushing myself, it started to become mundane and I was gradually exercising less and less. When I met Vicki at 16 weeks pregnant, she helped me to realise that I was training my body for a different purpose; it wasn’t about lifting heavy or beating circuit times, it was about giving my baby the best environment I could.
We did a combination of aqua cardio, light circuits, core and stability 2-3 times a week right up until the day I gave birth. Without this I’m convinced my pregnancy wouldn’t have gone as smoothly. Also by monitoring my weight and measurements it ensured I gained the NHS recommended amount of weight week on week and didn’t focus on how I was going to shift the dreaded baby weight once he was here!
Exercising regularly also meant that my body was prepared for labour and I opted for a natural birth in water. All of this contributed to the smooth process from my waters breaking at midnight, through to having him at 8am and being home by lunchtime!
I can’t thank Vicki enough for all the time and effort she put in with me through the whole process and would recommend anyone who is either pregnant or trying for a family to start exercising with her as soon as possible. Even if you’ve never exercised before or been a bit sporadic with it, the benefits it has for you and your baby are immeasurable.
Thanks Vicki! xx

After I had my first child in 2012 I struggled to lose the weight and eventually accepted that I would never regain my pre pregnancy size 10 figure. In 2015 after having my second baby a friend recommended training sessions with Vicki, and thanks to her advice, encouragement, fitness knowledge, monthly measuring and regular PT sessions I went from 10 stone 11lbs in October to 9st 6lbs in April - 7 months. I lost 16 inches overall. When I saw myself in a changing room mirror I did a double take and couldn't believe the results. Vicki succeeded where other PT instructors I have had failed. She will push you to do better and help improve technique for you to meet your goals. She knows what works to improve certain body areas and what limits are post pregnancy. Vicki really cares about her clients and wants them to succeed and will help and advise wherever she can. Vicki recommended the joe wicks recipe book 'lean in 15' and by using it alongside the training sessions (and logging in myfitnesspal where Vicki could see my diet) it improved my perspective on food long term. I still allowed myself the odd biscuit or cake (and after I stopped breastfeeding the odd glass of prosecco) but I am determined to maintain my new shape. So it is hard work and after you have a baby you may think you will never fit into your old jeans. With Vicki's help you will, possibly even a size smaller. Thankyou Vicki!
I started at Keepfitmammy when my baby was 8 weeks old and I'm still going 8 months later. I had severe separated abdominal muscles but really wanted to start to lose the baby weight. Vicki was excellent; providing advice and guidance on what I could/couldn't do and provided me with a bespoke programme. Her classes provide a good work out, my baby and toddler are entertained- they love it! And there is a great social aspect to the group too- Would highly recommend!
Keepfitmammy has been my absolute lifeline with 3 small children- the kids love it, I love it and I've got fit and met some lovely new friends at the same time! I'd recommend this group to every mammy out there!
