SOME mums will do anything to get back in to shape after giving birth – including using their children as weights for pilates.
A new fitness regimen called Pilates and Prams is taking the Top End by storm.
Instructor and organiser Hollie Goodall said the program was about getting new mums and their babies in to training and socialising, as well as helping soon-to-be mums increase their core strength.
“I did pilates up until two weeks before I gave birth,” she said.
“It gave me a core strength, and I got my tummy muscles back soon after.”
Ms Goodall began Mums and Bubs Boot Camp four years ago and was overwhelmed with the response.
She said Pilates and Prams was in response to calls for a program based on stretching and core strength training.
“We started Mums and Bubs to get new mums out meeting each other and getting fit,” she said.
