The best virtual postnatal fitness classes

Expert-led workouts for new mothers to do at home

Postnatal exercise comes with specific guidelines: you must get sign-off from your GP at six weeks before starting any fitness regime (before that, only gentle walks are advisable), and be mindful not to attempt what you were doing pre-pregnancy right away, but to rehab properly.

After pregnancy, many women suffer from a condition known as 'diastasis recti', where the abdominal wall separates. Taking this – and other postnatal complications – into account when working out from home, it pays to follow a specific programme, or interact live with an expert who can advise you personally on your post-pregnancy journey.


Barrecore

Barrecore, the barre fitness company with 13 studios across the UK, explains that its method is safe post-pregnancy due to the low-impact and mindful nature of its classes. Designed to ease clients back into regular classes (which exhaust your muscles to the point of the signature 'Barrecore shake'), they’ve recently added a dedicated weekly postnatal class to the live schedule, streamed via Zoom.

With Barrecore’s strong focus on the core, their trained experts can diagnose ab separation and run through a series of exercises that help heal the wall and strengthen the muscles back to pre-pregnancy levels.




Our unique Barrecore Method is recognised as one of the fastest, safest and most effective body transformation exercises, and has been publicly endorsed by Claudia Schiffer, Pippa Middleton, Rita Ora, Vogue, Elle, Women's Health, Condé Nast and Vanity Fair amongst many others.
