Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By RHI­AN­NON MCCON­NELL

A 1998 photo of prams and moth­ers stirred a lot of in­ter­est on the KapiMana News Face­book page last week.

The photo turned out to be of the first Buggy Fit class run by Julie Waimotu.

The idea is now used by Ci­tyfit­ness gyms around New Zealand.

Mrs Waimotu said she started the class af­ter hav­ing her first child.

‘‘I wanted to con­tinue do­ing it with­out wor­ry­ing about who was go­ing to look af­ter him,’’ she said. ‘‘It sort of sky­rock­eted.’’

Mrs Waimotu said the class had about 40 people at­tend. The mother of three said she has taught with each oher chil­dren but as the old­est is now 7, she just fills in for the class these days. ‘‘It’s such a good prod­uct.’’ Liz Hib­berd com­mented that most of her par­ents group was there.

‘‘Our par­ents cen­tre cof­fee group would go to fit­ness, then off to a cafe to eat cream­cakes.’’

Bindie Hood sug­gested the group have a re­union.

The Buggy Fit classes are still go­ing at Ci­tyfit­ness Porirua.
