Fitting in Fitness
Moms spend at least an hour a day interacting with their little ones, yet find it difficult to set aside an hour to go for a Yoga or Pilates class.
Why not take that hour of interacting with your little one and use it as your workout time. You are not losing any quality time with your toddler if you are exercising with them.
Postnatal baby weight and Hormonal Fluctuations! These will certainly drive any Mommy crazy. Physical exercise will certainly help with these issues that we have. It will give Moms the opportunity to tone and firm up after having baby and the best part is that it releases mood-boosting endorphins, which in turn also help with hormonal imbalances and postpartum depression, yay.
Mommy & Me Toddler Team Classes give Moms the chance to spend quality time and bond with their Toddler outside of their home. Spending those 45-60 minutes with your little one while you work out helps improve & strengthen your bond. Doing fun movements will have a positive effect on your little one too. When your little one is on the mat in front of you, staring up at you while you are trying hard to hold the plank position, and cooing and smiling at you while doing push-ups, he/she is picking up on your good energy while you are doing something positive for yourself and your little one.
Mommy & Toddler Time
We all need to take a little time out of our hectic Mommy Day to focus on our health as well as the health of our children.

As mentioned earlier, Physical exercise will certainly help with these issues that we have with postnatal weight and the hormonal fluctuations.

It strengthens the heart
The heart is a muscle, and like other muscles, its performance improves when it’s regularly challenged by exercise. The heart responds to exercise by becoming stronger and more efficient. Strengthening the heart muscle can help ward off heart disease—the leading cause of death in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services—even in early childhood.
It helps keep arteries and veins clear
Exercise reduces the amount of harmful cholesterol and fats in a person’s blood. It increases the flexibility of the walls of blood vessels, and helps to lower blood pressure. This can reduce a person’s risk for heart attack and stroke.
It strengthens the lungs
Working hard increases lung capacity and their efficiency in moving air in and out of the body. As a result, more oxygen is drawn into the body and more carbon dioxide and other waste gases are expelled. Regular exercise helps prevent the decline in oxygen intake that occurs naturally with age or as a result of inactivity.
It reduces blood sugar levels
Exercise prevents sugar from accumulating in the blood by triggering muscles to take up more glucose from the bloodstream and use it for energy. This can reduce a person’s risk of developing diabetes.
It controls weight
When a person is sedentary, he tends to be taking in more calories than are needed. These unused calories accumulate as fat. A person who is physically active may have a deficit of calories, which takes fat away and lowers weight. Lowered weight is good for the heart and can be beneficial in people with diabetes.
