FITNESS-loving mums are being invited to take their babies and buggies to Westminster Lodge leisure centre next week for a fundraising class.

The sports centre in Holywell Hill, St Albans, is hosting a charity Buggy Fitness session on Thursday, August 15, and plans to double all the funds collected and donate them to Grove House.

Taking place in Verulamium Park, the work-out combines prams with circuit-style exercises to srengthen and tone post-pregnancy trouble spots and is suitable for mothers of all fitness levels as long as they have had their six week post-pregnancy GP check-up.

Chloe Charlton, Buggy Fitness instructor at Westminster Lodge and mum-of-two said: “Buggy Fitness makes it easy for mums to get out and exercise without the additional pressure and expense of childcare.

“It’s a great class and a supportive environment for new mums who can enjoy a chat and meet new friends while they workout.”

Buggy Fitness is usually held every Monday from 10.30am to 11.25am. For more information contact the leisure centre on 01727 736080.
