From one mum to another.
I remember when I became a mum, and I remember how many expectations I had on myself about the type of mum I was going to be, the type of mum I had to be. I was so hard on myself, thinking that I had to be capable of everything and wanted to prove to everyone that I was killing it. The reality was Bonnie hardly slept in the day, I was tired and had no idea what I was doing, I was craving adult conversation, I wanted my body to feel and look like it used to. I was afraid that nothing would ever be the same and that I would get lost in the process. I felt that if I could move my body and get fit I would have energy and I could be the best version of myself for my baby and my family, but I was too afraid to start because I didn’t want to feel even worse around the super healthy amazing mums, I’d be wobbling all over the place, trying to keep my shirt down over my muffin tops and what if my boobs leaked milk everywhere while I was running, and my pelvic floor I am pretty sure it had left the building…… oh and what if I left Bonnie and she needed me, the guilt, I would never forgive myself… I’d be dead from embarrassment and guilt! If the workout didn’t kill me first.
Are you craving some time to yourself to focus on your own health and fitness, but it seems impossible? Does the idea of getting some guilt free exercise and fresh air, and socialising with other Mums sound lush? Are you ready to get fit for a fraction of the cost of a one-on-one trainer in a supportive and fun environment, with babysitters on board to keep babes entertained while you workout?
It’s our mission to help empower Newcastle Mums to achieve this and more! We’re so passionate about working with Mums, because some of us trainers are Mums too. We understand the challenges of motherhood, and the act of juggling everything and everyone else and never having time to take care of myself. Been there, done it!
Pineapple Mums is all about giving you a great workout with friends, and some ‘me’ time. The best bit? We have babysitters to watch your little ones while you do it. The added bonus is that your little one gets introduced to an active lifestyle from the start!
We’re so proud to have created a beautiful, supportive community of like-minded Mums and we’d love for you to join us.
