As a new parent, juggling a young baby and trying to find time for yourself is incredibly challenging and often enough, this is the time when a lot of parents sacrifice their own needs in favour of caring for their little one. However, this is the time when you need energy and positivity the most, and exercise is proven to increase energy levels, improve sleep and boost your mood. An energized and happy parent will mean a happier baby too!
CARiFiT online workouts are done whilst wearing the baby, offering new mothers the chance to get back into shape and bond with their baby at the same time. Making exercise fun and accessible, the latest CARiFiT4ALL is a free and safe way to exercise at home. Signposted by the Royal College of GPs in their clinical lifestyle toolkit and supported by GP’s throughout the UK, this fun yet informative introduction to CARiFiT is packed full of information and advice from professionals within the fields of physiotherapy, midwifery and babywearing. It is the ideal way to ease back into exercise and arm yourself with the right tools and knowledge to do this safely.
CARiFiT devotees in 21 countries and counting are regularly posting about their amazing body changing results after as little as 12 minutes per day! These workouts have been carefully and purposefully designed to be highly effective, yet safe and the results are quickly apparent.
The name CARiFiT stems from the structure and design of the workouts, yet it also cleverly encompasses the babywearing element. Put simply, the letters represent the following:
C – Cardio
A – And
R – Resistance
I – Intervals
Each of the workouts offers a mixture of low impact cardio and resistance interval training techniques, all designed to engage the core, improve the posture and increase all-round fitness. There’s something for everyone to try during the most exciting, but exhausting time of being a new parent!
The emphasis is always on providing a safe, yet effective workout that has been accessible and guilt-free; The babies take centre stage during the workouts, removing any potential separation anxiety. For the ladies that are used to high-intensity pre-choreographed workouts, they will feel a reassuring sense of familiarity throughout the workouts. To those new to working out, CARiFiT offers an easy to follow, yet constantly challenging routine that will leave you energised and exhilarated.
All the workouts go through the same process – once the moves have been fine-tuned, they are tested whilst babywearing and then observed by fellow professionals in both the medical and fitness fields. They then structure the sequence of exercises to offer a safe and thorough post-natal specific full-body workout.
Many will be surprised to learn that CARiFiT is the brainchild of Vern Hill, an ante and postnatal fitness expert who is also a father of two! He is supported by a team of industry-leading fitness professionals, as well as top doctors, midwives, physios and babywearing experts…nothing is left to chance.
The CARiFiT online membership was created to offer new mothers everywhere the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the workouts, wherever they are in the world, at any time of the day or night. There are also exclusive benefits for members in the subscription-only members portal, including discounts and personalized offers.
The flexible membership options start from just £20 per month and provide numerous workouts to vary the routines regularly. There is also plenty of lifestyle and nutritional advice to help make the right or necessary changes and every online member receives full support via email from their own post-natal fitness expert.
