What We Offer
Our point of difference
Great environment at Habit
Puff fitness prides itself with finding great quality environments. Puff Fitness joined with Habit Health & Fitness in May 2015 to bring you an amazing environment to exercise in. This is what a girl needs for sure, a touch of luxury. A stunning view over the sparkling waters of Evans Bay, getting out on the deck to exercise, and using the fabulous equipment in the gym. All this to enjoy and you don’t have to be a member of Habit to soak this environment up.
A dedicated nanny
All of our postnatal classes will have a nanny provided to mind your baby! I know it is too good to be true – price is included. Just bring your baby with you and exercise with your baby in the same room so you can go to them if you need. We are so lucky to have this service. Porse
Prepare for a dose of education in the classes and as you access the online content that Lynda has prepared for you. You will be informed all about the pelvic floor with pelvis models and pictures to show you. You will learn about pelvic floor safe exercise. And much much more.
Problems we can solve
I think these are the seven top things a postnatal woman wants and we certainly have this covered:

    1. Fat loss
    2. Energy
    3. Body strength and tone
    4. Cardiovascular fitness
    5. Nutrition
    6. Hormonal balance
    7. Belly
    8. Pelvic floor
    9. Me time

We solve these key postnatal problems over this amazing eight-week journey. You will just have to enrol to find out more.

We work closely with Women’s Health Physio’s. In our preassassments we find out who needs to be referred. There is so much that can happen to the core muscles and pelvic organs as a result of birthing ( c-section or vaginal). Exercise prescription is individual and is tailored to each womens pelvic health profile. NB: Women’s Health Physiotherapy is not included in the cost of the Puff Fitness Postnatal recovery programme. We show you over the first two weeks how to contract your pelvic floor and then you get to see on real-time ultrasound if you are doing it properly. Our physios offer this free service on week two and again on week six to see if you have improved your endurance holds. There is a Calling all Mums flyer which describes a separate service where mums can spend more time on the ultrasound, or focus on alignment, or get some more help with diastasis recti (separated abdominals). This service is a separate cost but is linked into my programme.
Lifetime value
Learning how to contract and relax your pelvic floor muscles is so important. We need to do pelvic floor exercise every day. This course gives you the confidence to know how to do it and see it happen! You will also learn about how to protect your pelvic floor during everyday movements and during exercise. This really is gold. Vouchers, a free dynaband and lots of reading and weekly emails from me with different topics each week! You will be provided with a nutrition voucher and also one for massage (vouchers are subject to individual gym discretion). Massage is great as a chill out and provides much needed me time. We also recommend you do this to help free up any tight muscles that may be holding you back from good alignment. Good alignment is key to good core connection!
Thorough assessment
Everyone is thoroughly screened by us to make sure they are safe to come into the programme. We liaise with a variety of physiotherapists and will refer you when necessary. All your fitness goals are listed. Your tummy muscles, alignment, core connection, c-section scars, breathing, blood pressure and movement patterns are all assessed and documented also a full birth account and past medical history. This is a very comprehensive check and takes an hour. This is essential before the programme starts. We follow you through with phone calls and personal training where appropriate throughout the programme and we make sure you are meeting your goals. You receive lots of support even when the programme is finished.

What customers are saying about PUFF Fitness


After the birth of my second child, I was very run down. I was stuck in a cycle of having no energy or strength and being very susceptible to injury. Lynda’s class was the perfect place to start the healing process and regain my strength; it was a safe environment of appropriate exercises and lots of support. I just wish I’d started there sooner. I recommend the class to all post natal mums and suggest that you don’t wait until you are feeling better to go, go so that you do feel better.
