Frequently asked questions



Leicestershire-based Muma&BubaHIIT classes are postnatal-friendly HIIT sessions designed to suit mums with babies - they work you hard but take into consideration what the body has been through during pregnancy and birth. Muma&BubaHIIT will:

  • Give you a fantastic postnatal workout in only 45 to 50 minutes
  • Work the entire body - upper, lower, core - and get the heart pumping
  • Boost your metabolism
  • Be kind to your joints and pelvic floor by being low impact but high energy
  • Build muscle mass so that you burn calories day and night!

    Muma&BubaHIIT is the perfect next level class to move on to after completing BouncingBack & BuggyBabies.


Muma&BubaHIIT is on Tuesdays at 11.45am. Come along beforehand at 11am for a cuppa, a chat and a spot of socialising! 


These postnatal fitness classes take place in Woodhouse Community Hall LE12 8TZ

"Jo is everything I was hoping for when looking for postnatal fitness classes. The classes she has on offer are engaging as well as targeted to help you reach your goal. I have been attending Jo's MamaBubaHIIT classes for the last 5 months and now have joined her online fitness program as I transition to go back to work. I have enjoyed every moment of training with Jo and the other mums to become healthier and fitter for 2020." Tracy

Q. When does the next course start?
A. Go to Timetable and Availability

Q. May I start part way through a course?
A. Yes of course – get in touch with us to see if spaces are available.


Q. I suffer from back pain. Is Muma&BubaHIIT suitable?
A. It might not be suitable for you, even though it is low impact. It is quite fast and energetic and this does not necessarily lend itself to back pain, where exercises need to be performed with great care and precision. I would suggest trying my postnatal Pilates BouncingBack classes. You are, of course, welcome to come along and test Muma&BubaHIIT to see how your back feels both during and after the session.


Q. I struggle following choreographed routines. Will Muma&BubaHiIT be complicated to follow?
A. No, this is not a “choreographed” class with a routine. We work through a series of exercises for short, sharp bursts of time and then have even shorter recovery periods. You will get help and advice with technique.


Q. I have heard that you specialise in pregnancy and postnatal exercise. I am neither pre nor postnatal. Is this class suitable for me?
A. Yes, just so long as you don’t mind the fact that most people will have a baby in a buggy with them! The fact that BuggyHIIT works you hard whilst being low impact makes it suitable for far more people than many classes which involve a lot of jumping around.


Q. I have just had my 6 week postnatal check-up. Am I OK to do Muma&BubaHIIT?
A. If you had a straightforward vaginal birth and you were active throughout pregnancy then you can ease into Muma&BubaHIIT over the coming weeks, starting off at a more gentle pace and gradually building up. However, if you have had a C section, have had a long period of physical inactivity, have quite severe diastasis recti – abdominal separation – or a damaged pelvic floor, then I would strongly suggest starting out with my postnatal Pilates class – BouncingBack and my BuggyBabies workouts.

Q. I am pregnant. Can I do Muma&BubaHIIT?
A. If you have a very high level of fitness, have exercised uninterruptedly pre-pregnancy and into early pregnancy and are 100% well with no contrainidications, then you might be OK to do a gentler version of BuggyHIIT initially. It is low impact which will make it a better option than, for example, going to standard bootcamps and HIIT classes. However, for the majority of women this is not going to be the right form of exercise in pregnancy.

Q. What should I wear to Muma&BubaHIIT
A. Make sure you've got your gym gear and trainers with you. You'll need a bottle of water too!
