Kangatraining – Mums & Bubs post natal fitness

The original baby-wearing workout for a healthy mum and happy baby!

Kangatraining is a fitness program for Mums and Bubs which operates in over 30 countries and has been voted Australia’s favourite post natal workout multiple years running! Check out our International/national page here: https://kangatraining.info/go/kangatraining
Kangatraining Kingston & Surrounds currently holds classes in Highett, Cheltenham, Chelsea , and St Kilda.

What is Kangatraining?
Kangatraining is a dance based choreographed workout that is perfect for mothers to socialise, exercise without the need to find a babysitter and enjoy all the health benefits without going to the gym! There is no need to be coordinated though and I will be the first to admit that I have 2 left feet!! And although it is low impact I promise you will sweat!!

Kangatraining means a total body workout while your baby can relax and enjoy being close to you. As a qualified post natal trainer I will take you through a specifically designed program that focuses  on re-strengthening your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, as well as the correct posture while carrying your baby.

Whether you want to get back into shape post pregnancy, have a laugh with friends, or just get out of the house, you can enjoy a safe workout with a qualified trainer, while your baby relaxes and enjoys being close to you.

Why choose Kangatraining?

  • no need for a babysitter
  • total body workout
  • promotes mother and baby bonding
  • led by a qualified post natal instructor
  • positive outcomes for postnatal depression
  • social, meeting other like-minded mothers

  • promotes safe and healthy baby wearing

When can I commence classes?
You can begin Kangatraining once you have been given the “all clear” from your health professional to start exercising. This is usually from 6 weeks postpartum or 12 weeks following a Caesarean section. I will ask you to complete a health questionnaire to highlight any concerns so that I can modify the exercises in the workout for you.

Is there an age limit for babies?
There is no age limit as long as you can wear your baby comfortably and safely.
Is my baby carrier suitable and what if I don’t have one?
You are welcome to bring your carrier so that I can assess its suitability for class.  I will also assist you in getting the best fit and comfort for you and your baby. There will be demo carriers available at each class to try out or rent for free on an ongoing basis. Our carriers can hold up to 20kgs. Come along and give it a go!
