If your little is anything like mine, she is up and on you all day long. To make life easier, I use a carrier…A LOT! So when my husband was setting up my new site he was adding in some place holding pictures until I got a chance to start working on it. One of the images he came across was this one. ^ Mamas working out with their babies on them! Are you serious? this is a thing?

I quickly set to researching and sure enough, not only is it “a thing”, but there was a new class starting just up the road from me in a week! I couldn’t wait, my first research mission as a blogger (I use the term loosely as 3 posts does not a blogger make.)

Wednesday came and @ 9:30am I strapped my little to me and we made our way up the hill the 7 blocks to Kangatraining

First off “What is Kangatraining?”

Kangatraining is a complete workout during which both cardiovascular endurance/flexibility and muscular capacity/strength are enhanced. Unlike traditional exercise classes, new mums need not worry about finding a babysitter or minding an unsettled baby during class because the babies are worn on them and get to be part of the action!

The pelvic floor and abdominal muscles as well as correct posture are given special attention. Kangatrainers are also trained in babywearing best practices and can help mums ensure the safest and most comfortable carrying positions for their babies.

The name ‘Kangatraining’ comes from ‘Winnie the Poo’ where by the Kanga mother dotes on her playful and energetic baby joey Roo!
