September Mum of the Month - Meet Brenda

This month I am excited to introduce you to second time mum and our September Mum of the Month Brenda. Brenda first came to BBB sessions after the birth of her first daughter in 2009, she has now returned second time round and is getting fitter and looking more and more amazing every week!

Meet Brenda

How long have you been coming to Body Beyond Baby sessions?

Nearly 6 months this time round.

Was the childcare option a big decision maker in choosing BBB?

Yes!!  i wanted to be able to have specific allocated times for exercise so that I could maintain consistency.  I also like that Harper gets to socialise with other babies and spend time with someone other than myself.  The nannies are fantastic.

Have you found it easier or harder getting back into shape after having your second baby? 

I think I've been more focused this time around, only because my body changed ALOT after the second baby.  I didn't think I would get my strength or fitness back because my second pregnancy was different and I didn't have as much time to excercise as I did with my first baby.

Can you share your ‘get back into shape’ secrets with us?

Consistency and training with intent and intensity.  I make sure that I take an hour a day to myself to do excercise and have a rest one or two days a week.  It's the only hour that I get to myself so I'm really selfish with it!!

Would you like to add anything else about your Body Beyond Baby experience?

It's a wonderful way to get back into excercise because you are guided through what are suitable excercises.  Jen is a great trainer who pushes you and also tells you when you need to pull it back a bit.  I like that you get to meet other mums and you can bounce ideas off them in regards to your children and other kiddy stuff.  The environment is relaxed but focused and everyone is really supportive of each other.  And we get to train outdoors!!

As a thank you and congratulations for being our Mum of the Month Brenda receives a $50 voucher for nannying or babysitting services from Poppins Nanny Agency
