Classes are currently on hold whilst Lucy takes time out to give birth!

Meet the instructors

KiN Mama is run by twin sisters Lucy (a personal trainer) & Vic (a yoga instructor). Having both worked in the city in PR and events for many years, we found it a real challenge to support our bodies physically and mentally – juggling the desire to do a sweaty heart pumping class and also squeeze in a stretch, yoga and meditation, run for the train, then back in time for childcare = impossible!

 

Hence our business was born.

“As a teacher I like to provide a supportive and calming space for women to connect with their amazing bodies, babies and come away feeling more nourished, centred, relaxed and in control.”

"Wish I had definitely started sooner! It’s certainly made me realise the importance of taking time to reset, breathe as well as stretch the body"

Frequently asked questions

Do I have to be fit or flexible to do your classes?


No not at all. We cater for all abilities, however having attended a yoga or fitness class before will help you be familiar with some of the exercises and language used. For beginners we advise you take it slowly, follow all safety instructionsfollow modified options, work with 70% of your maximum range and if you feel dizzy or so out of breath you can’t speak that’s a sign to stop. See below more on Important Info.




I have a medical condition, can I join?


Should you have a medical condition that may inhibit you from exercise you will need sign off from your doctor before starting classes to ensure the classes are safe.




Can my baby be at the online classes?


Of course! That’s the beauty of training from your living room, taking the stress out of finding childcare. We don’t however recommend using babies as weights! If you have a bouncer or something the baby can be strapped into that helps make the environment safe. If you need to feed, burp, cuddle – no problem!




What trimester can I start exercise?


Anytime! Many women find exercise in the first trimester hard due to sickness and lack of energy, but if you are one of the lucky ones you can certainly start whenever you feel ready.




I’ve never lifted weights before, are your classes for me?


Yes! FiT Mama classes are open to all levels, and form and technique is taught throughout and all classes can be done without weights if you aren’t sure. We also don’t expect you to got out and buy a rack of dumbbells! Water bottles, cans of beans can work just fine!




How long do I have to wait before starting the postnatal classes?


We always say give it until at least your 6-8 week GP check-up, and more importantly; when you feel ready. It’s really important that you build your core foundations back before rushing into any impact exercises, therefore we recommend starting with the Well Mama Postnatal programme first, before moving on to FiT Mama.




I don’t live in the UK, can I do the classes?


Yes you can! KiN teachers actually live in two different places, that’s the beauty of Zoom! The times will all be in GMT so ensure they work with your timescale.




Do you offer prerecorded programmes?


Not at the moment but we do have some free workouts on our YouTube Channel that you can try. We can also accommodate class recordings if the class times don’t work for you, however we always feel our mamas get more from connecting live so we can provide feedback on positioning and form to ensure you get the most from your workouts!
