Stroller Strength sessions are specifically designed as a post-natal fitness class for mother and baby. It is similar to an outdoor bootcamp but incorporates your buggy and your baby.
Stroller strength sessions will develop your core strength and improve your fitness with your buggy in tow. The sessions are a variation of squats, push ups, burpees, running and competitive games. You’ll enjoy a whole body work out. Come along for a chat with other mums, bonding time with your baby and some fresh air.
All mums must have approval from their midwife or doctor and be at least 6 weeks post natal for a natural birth or 10 weeks post c section to participate
Fussy or Crying Baby – It’s OK!
Your baby is your first priority. The beauty of Mums of Steel classes is we are aware of the situation of mums with babies and understand they can become fussy from time to time. We embrace the challenges and celebrate the support that this group environment can provide. If your baby becomes fussy you are encouraged to take your time and soothe your baby. Do not worry about disturbing other classmates we are all mums in the same boat.
If you would like to discuss anything about your health or fitness privately feel free to ring Mary on 07709 342329, no need to book just turn up!

Lace up your trainers and head down to Oakmere Park to play on the first interactive sports court in the country!
The multi-purpose sports court has four goals and is controlled through a game console. It takes all the best elements of outdoor team sports but adds a new dimension. Impact-sensitive panels measure and react to the ball, and the vivid LED lights and audio speakers give players feedback and encouragement on their performance.
The interactive sports court is as entertaining as video games, yet fun, healthy and socially constructive just like outdoor play. With five games to choose from, even regular users of the interactive sports court won’t get bored. It’s aimed at young people in junior school and upwards, so grab your parents, carers, grandparents or friends and head down to the park!
The interactive sports court was funded by Section 106 money – which is money given to the council through the planning process for local development.
As well as the interactive football court, we have also installed a new Crusader rope swing, which gives people of all ages the challenge of standing or sitting to create the swing motion. This will be opened in mid-November once the safety surface has been fitted.
The equipment is modern, which will hopefully entice more young people to our local parks to use the wonderful facilities that are on offer.
To find out more about the facilities in our parks, visit our website: www.hertsmere.gov.uk/parkfacilities
