Mums and bubs ex­er­cise

WORK­OUT AT BOTANIC GAR­DENS

Shepparton News - - NEWS - By Sion­nie Kelly

Sit-ups, stretches and boxing were on the agenda for those who braved the change­able weather for a mums and bubs ex­er­cise class on Tues­day.

The ex­er­cise class was held as part of City of Greater Shep­par­ton’s Ac­tiv­i­ties in the Park and gave moth­ers the chance to do a work­out at the Aus­tralian Botanic Gar­dens, in Kialla, with their chil­dren.

The class was run by Ever­fit’s Louise Mor­ris who knows all too well how dif­fi­cult it can be for moth­ers to get out and ex­er­cise when they have young chil­dren.

‘‘When you’ve got lit­tle ones you’re so re­stricted in what you can do, so to be able to ex­er­cise, get out, check out the parks in the area as well and bring your kids too is great,’’ she said.

Ms Mor­ris said the good thing about the ex­er­cise class was any­one could at­tend, no mat­ter their fit­ness level.

‘‘I just suit it to my par­tic­i­pants,’’ she said.

‘‘It doesn’t mat­ter what fit­ness level peo­ple are at, there’s still some­thing they can do.’’

Dur­ing the class par­tic­i­pants com­pleted a va­ri­ety of ex­er­cises such as boxing, stretches and body-weight re­sis­tance work.

Shep­par­ton’s Crys­tal Snow­den said the ex­er­cise class was great be­cause she was able to bring her son Fin­lay Brown, seven months, along.

It was the first time Ms Snow­den had at­tended the class and she said it felt like a good work­out. ● The next mums and bubs ex­er­cise class is at the Aus­tralian Botanic Gar­dens Shep­par­ton, at Kialla, on Tues­day, Septem­ber 19 from 1.30 pm to 2.15 pm. There is no charge, and peo­ple are en­cour­aged to wear com­fort­able cloth­ing and bring a drink bot­tle.

Push-ups: Crys­tal Snow­den and Amanda Far­rall use a piece of park fur­ni­ture at Aus­tralian Botanic Gar­dens dur­ing their ex­er­cises.

Train­ing hard: Amanda Far­rall and Crys­tal Snow­den do some boxing ex­er­cises.

Happy: Crys­tal Snow­den with her son Fin­lay Brown, 7 months.
