WE ARE THE PRE & POST NATAL SPECIALISTS

The ONLY place to go for Mama’s to get fit, strong and healthy, during pregnancy and post birth, SAFELY! W Co.


Pregnancy can be great for some women and yet difficult & uncomfortable for others. Additionally, recovery post birth also differs vastly, with some mama’s ‘bouncing back’, while others less so and, for many women, feeling like they have never recovered at all. Feeling the most unfit they ever have and with a body they don’t recognize.

Knowing what exercises are safe for you and which are not can also be very confusing. We have seen so many women suffering from pain and complications primarily due to a lack of knowledge on how to look after ourselves and what exercises are appropriate for us at specific times. Your pelvic floor and core are our primary focus and it is our mission to educate and support all mama’s through safe and healthy pregnancies and recovery following birth.

All our classes are pre/post natal safe and have been carefully designed and programmed to provide the optimal benefits to your bodies. Our workouts will strengthen your whole body, specifically focusing on your pelvic floor and deep core muscles, rebuilding you from the inside out.

Mama’s can start at any point during your pregnancy or after birth. After birth you must be 6 weeks postpartum (12 weeks with a c-section) and have your doctors clearance to return to exercise. We also strongly suggest all mama’s see a women’s health physio to have their pelvic floor checked. All our morning classes are designed to keep your baby with you in a carrier or pram, so no need to part with them. 

W Co has an amazing community of mama’s, it is a chance for you to mingle with other mothers who are experiencing all the same things as you, for your babies to interact and to make great friends. We also have creche facility with expert staff available to look after your little ones from 6 weeks old to 5 years.

Initial consultations are compulsory before participating in any group classes, this is so we provide you with the best care, support and guidance on your health and fitness journey.


MENOPAUSE & OVER 50's

Why is fitness important during menopause?

Exercise during and after menopause offers many benefits, including:

  • Preventing weight gain. Women tend to lose muscle mass and gain abdominal fat around menopause. Regular physical activity can help prevent weight gain.
  • Reducing the risk of cancer. Exercise during and after menopause can help you lose excess weight or maintain a healthy weight, which might offer protection from various types of cancer, including breast, colon and endometrial cancer.
  • Strengthening your bones. Exercise can slow bone loss after menopause, which lowers the risk of fractures and osteoporosis.
  • Reducing the risk of other diseases. Menopause weight gain can have serious implications for your health. Excess weight increases the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Regular exercise can counter these risks.
  • Boosting your mood. Physically active adults have a lower risk of depression and cognitive decline.

What are the best physical activities to try?

For most healthy women, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends moderate aerobic activity for at least 150 minutes a week or vigorous aerobic activity for at least 75 minutes a week. In addition, strength training exercises are recommended at least twice a week.

Consider your exercise options and their benefits:

  • Aerobic activity. Aerobic activity can help you shed excess pounds and maintain a healthy weight.
  • Strength training. Regular strength training can help you reduce body fat, strengthen your muscles and burn calories more efficiently.
  • Stretching. Stretching can help improve flexibility.
  • Stability and balance. Balance exercises improve stability and can help prevent falls.


W Co understand the changes that occur throughout womanhood and have created a place that not only caters all our classes to this but also due to our small class sizes can provide guidance and modifications where required.
