Health and Fitness resources for new mums and mums to be

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, February 04, 2011 with 5 comments
Yesterday I told you of Heidi’s venture into personal training, and Wednesday I listed the benefits of exercise during pregnancy. Today I bring those two thoughts together. Another member of the speedygeese, Michelle, runs programs specialising in personal fitness for new mums and expectant mums. Her website is

"Regardless of whether you are trying to conceive, are expecting, have recently had a baby, or if 'your baby' is now an adult-optimal fitness can be achieved and maintained with a personalised fitness program"

You might be interested in joining, not just for an exercise program but also for the knowledge, support and reassurance Michelle would provide. Or if you have friends who would benefit from this, then please do recommend a'bloom to them.

Candid Canberra #51 - a summer of extremes.

Yesterday's storm, the tip of a cyclone far away. Seems there is no end in sight for unseasonal rain in Canberra. Except in a couple of days' time it is predicted that the rain and storms will come in from the south, bringing much cooler weather. Not too extreme I hope, we have running to do!


  1. Hi Geoff, great lil' article, I really enjoyed reading that.

    I'm also glad to have such coverage - as a mother and an athlete I personally like reading of news that combines the two.

    If you don't mind, I'd like to get your advice on something if possible.

    I’m thinking of opening a fitness center, but I'm having a hard time coming up with a unique branding concept.

    I have found a couple of free online apps that offer business branding concepts:

    What do you think? Do you think the branding concept they return for solopreneur fitness center with a young adult to adult age range would work for a successful business concept?

    I also want to have a children'S center and have classes that perhaps encourage fun workouts that parents and children can do together.

    I would really appreciate the advice. Thanks and great article! Can't wait to see what you have next!!

  2. "solopreneur" sounds clumsy, doesn't it? If that is what they are suggesting.

    Names are important. NOUNS are important. All the best names are taken - Fit4Life, FitnHealthy, etc etc.

    Try MOREthanLIFE. I dare you. And make your centre more than just exercise. As you say, make it fun.

  3. I think we should pass around the hat to buy Jen a 'post natal gold pack' at a'bloom.

  4. I think we should pass the hat around for Jen and buy her a book on what's causing her problem in the first place. Or is that now, the fourth place. Good luck Jen, not long now.

  5. I thought they are trying to get me to increase my exercise post pregnancy Steve not reduce it :)
