After the Buggyfit classes on Mon 14th , Wed 16th and Fri 18th Dec we will be finishing the class at Central Cross Café (11.30am) for coffee and mince pies – any old Buggyfitters are welcome to join us as are prospective Buggyfitters.
Buggyfit is a national brand that helps new mums get back to exercise in a fun and safe environment. Along with helping mums to get stronger and lose any excess baby weight through exercise we are able to encourage healthy eating through Nairn’s Oatcakes sponsoring the classes.
As a result of the sponsorship Buggyfit trainers occasionally receive free samples to share with the classes. As a result of this, Buggyfitters in Pittville Park this morning enjoyed a wide range of Nairn’s oatcakes to sample with a variety of toppings provided by myself and some of the mums themselves.
This is what Patrick Holford, leading nutritionist, author and founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition has to say about eating oatcakes which are a Low GI food,
“Low GI foods help keep your blood sugar levels even, so help with weight control, as well as energy, and concentration levels. Since oatcakes are high in soluble fibre and contain no added sugar, they have a low GI, so are digested slowly by your body, keeping your blood sugar and your energy levels even. They also help you feel fuller for longer so you don’t feel hungry again so soon.
High GI foods, like white bread, cornflakes and rice cakes are digested quickly. This provides a short-term boost to your blood sugar level, followed by a blood sugar low a few hours later, leaving you feeling hungry and exhausted. When you combine low GI foods with protein and a little bit of fat, e.g. combining oatcakes with hummus, smoked mackerel pâté or peanut butter, you get an even slower release of energy.”
If you would like to come along to sample a class of Buggyfit then we meet every Mon, Wed and Fri all at 10.30 in front of the Pump Rooms, Pittville Park, Cheltenham, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and if you would like to try Nairn’s oatcakes then there will be another lunch after sessions on Friday 8th and 15th May.
I will be launching the Mumsfit – Health, Energy and Fitness brand on Sunday 29th June at The Cheltenham Bump, Babies and Beyond Fair at All Saints Academy, Blaisdon Way Cheltenham GL51 0WH from 10.30am to 3pm.
The first 200 families through the door will receive a goody bag and in it will be one of my very useful Mumsfit bags along with a postcard featuring the dates of the next six months of ‘Healthy New Mummy’ talks where I, along with nutritional therapist Georgina Graham will be giving you hints and tips on eating for energy and exercising to activate your core and pelvic floor. If you have missed the postcard, all dates are listed under the classes/services drop down menu.
I will also be carrying out free Diastasis (abdominal muscle separation) checks to make sure you are moving and exercising safely.
I will be able to advise you on a class that suits you with choices from exercising in the park to getting active with a fitball in the comfort of your own home.
