About the programme

Preparation

Women want to feel confident about birthing. My programmes show them ways in which they can reduce birth trauma, have an easier delivery and improve their postnatal recovery. The birth preparation part of the programme is well received. Women often attend again at the end of their pregnancy to recap on all the tips they learnt.

Class access online

Lynda has created online educational videos and is building a collection of pregnancy exercise videos that you can access when you buy the programme. This works very well if you miss a class or want to exercise more than once a week. You can press play at home.

Going the extra mile

Lynda is constantly adding value to her pregnancy programmes and is well connected with birth doulas, pregnancy massage therapists, aromatherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists, womens health physios, general physios to link in with her to create a rich experience for her pregnant ladies.

Convenience

Most of the ladies coming to my programmes are working in the CBD so my classes at 11am are working very well. They last 60 mins and get you back to the office.

Gymstick
Pregnant ladies want to exercise safely and know what is appropriate during this time. Women want a good work out that encompasses cardio, strength, flexibility and toning. We cater to this with a product called Gymstick.

See Gymstick in action below

I am looking forward to seeing you in my Pregnancy exercise and birth preparation programme, at Habit Majestic on Willis st.

What we offer

Our point of difference

Pregnancy Exercise

Keep your core connected as your baby grows

learn to prepare your pelvic floor for birthing, but keep it strong enough to prevent leaking during the last trimester

Keep fit, strong and flexible as we prepare you for the birthing Olympics

The exercise in the class prepares you for all the everyday movements you have to do as a pregnant lady and then also as a new mum.

Learn about pregnancy nutrition and nutrition for weight loss and healing in the postnatal period

Feel confident and in control about birthing options, and your birthing environment and about decisions you will have to make for your baby in the early postnatal period

We provide information for your partner about ways he can be involved in the birth

We show you exercises you can do to promote anterior positioning of your baby for easier birthing

We talk about the importance of the microbiome should you need to have a c-section

We talk about topics that aren’t covered in antenatal classes that are important like pelvic floor recovery

My classes are small and the content is holistic

If you are unclear about whether an exercise you are doing outside of my class is right for you, you can always ask me

See you there!

Thorough assessment

Everyone is thoroughly screened by me to make sure they are safe to come into the programme.

All your fitness goals during your pregnancy are listed and catered too.

We look at your health during your pregnancy and address any symptoms you may be experiencing.

I will liaise with your lead maternity carer if needed and also refer you to physiotherapy services where appropriate. We will continue to check in with you as your pregnancy progresses.

Lifetime value

Learning how to contract and relax your pelvic floor muscles is so important. When you are pregnant you need to be able to keep your pelvic floor strong as it needs to be able to support a growing baby.

It also needs to be stretchy enough to deliver your baby. Balance is key there.

Learning how your core muscles work and what happens to them during pregnancy really sets you up well to recover postnatally. It is much better to learn this now rather than when you are tired in the postnatal period. As your core muscles stretch you can loose connection with them. We aim to keep your brain connected to these muscles as you exercise during pregnancy.

Once you have delivered your baby of course you will come back to us for your postnatal recovery. Here you will see how your pelvic floor has reacted to pregnancy and birth on ultrasound. We train you how to improve you pelvic floor function right there! Amazing isn’t it?

Education

All of this content is available from the website when you sign up for the programme. Prepare for a dose of education. 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, optimal life style during pregnancy, birth planning and really interesting things like the microbiome.

What customers are saying about PUFF Fitness

Amelia

I undertook a pregnancy programme with Lynda and cannot fault her enthusiasm, knowledge and support during this period. I only wish that I had found PUFF Fitness earlier! Lynda genuinely cares about supporting women with her holistic fitness program and I am looking forward to joining her postnatal program.
