You’ve just become a mum, and whether [it’s for the first, second, or third time {href='' target='_blank' rel='noopener'}) you will at some point want to get back into a fitness regime. Or start a new one. But your daily routine is completely different and fitting in time for exercise among the millions of nappy changes and feed times can be tricky.

One thing that can help motivate you is some snazzy new trainers that will make you feel good while you work out, or just go for a walk with the pram to get some fresh air. Havingthe right gear can give you a boost of confidence to help get you on track with your fitness goals – whether that is doing Couch To 5k, starting a spin class, or simply walking a mile or two every morning.

Before you get back to exercise after having a baby, make sure to talk it through with your doctor to check it’s the right time; you probably don’t want to start anything new until after your 6-8 week check-up. And if you’ve had a Caesarian, take extra care and time getting back to any sort of levels of fitness – it really does take time for your body to recover.
