Feature: Lean Mums

Hi I’m Robbie the founder of Lean Mums, and I’m a Personal Trainer. I’ve worked with hundreds of mums and have taken all of that expertise and put it into creating Lean Mums which is all about making health and fitness as straightforward and stress free as possible for busy mums. The website includes home workouts, easy to cook recipes, a chat area and loads more!

I’m going to be writing a series of articles for Bad Mum Magazine, providing you with top tips to help you look and feel your best no matter how hectic life gets!

I want to start by talking about why it’s so important that you busy mums still find time to make health and fitness a part of your lives.

Most us exercise because we want to change the way our bodies look. That’s fine but it’s important that we don’t overlook a whole host of other benefits too.

Exercise is absolutely brilliant for our mood, energy levels, self-confidence, life balance and much, more. It can play a really important role in creating some positivity in your life. Something you do for yourself that makes you feel better and gives you a sense of accomplishment.

I’m sure you’ve experienced that buzz after a really good workout?

That rush of endorphin's that makes it all worthwhile! Well even just a short workout can help you feel this way. It’s also rewarding to know that you could easily have skipped that workout but you’ve got it done! That positivity can snowball and have a positive impact on other aspects of your life too.

I also love the idea that exercising gives you some time to yourself.

You spend so much of your life with your children, or thinking about them, exercise can be a time that is just for you. Some people might feel guilty about that but it’s really important and very natural. You are the same person you were before you had your child. It’s just now you have someone else to think about. But you are still allowed to do things that you enjoy that are just for you.

Exercising can energise you.

Its true! There might be days where you feel absolutely exhausted and grabbing a nap when you get 10 minutes to yourself is what you need. But there are other times where you feel sluggish and tired but a short workout will pick you up. Getting your body moving, gently increasing your heart rate, and doing something positive will give you a huge boost.

Remember exercise doesn’t always have to be about killing yourself with brutal workouts. Sometimes a light 5 minute workout, or gentle walk is all you need.

One thing I find myself saying a lot to my Mum clients is, “something is better than nothing”, and it’s true.

Try your best to stay active and make health and fitness a feature of your lifestyle, and watch how much better you feel!
