One of our awesome &Breathe trainers will be your fitness guru for the week, helping mums and dads get back into exercise or upping your game.  Sometimes increasing your gaggle can mean exercise, and you time, falls by the wayside, we're here to kickstart your routine and help you carve out some time for you.  If YOU feel better, you'll be a better parent too.

Your PT tailors your exercise throughout the week to your abilities, fitness level and birth experience; classes are mix of cardio, strength training and toning classes as well as stretching and will be indoors and outdoors.  Toddler+ mums and dads get two exercise sessions per day as well as a personal training session during the week.  And to make things even easier, we take the little ones during your fitness classes so you can exercise in peace!

 

Food

We’ll show you how you can eat healthily but with delicious food, and more importantly how you can keep on track when you get home, via &Breathe recipes.  We realise you’re on holiday too, so there is room for a glass of wine and a slice or three of French cheese!

Breakfasts are healthy and plentiful to set you up for the day.  Lunches are light but filling, afternoon snacks are served before the afternoon fitness class.  Dinners are healthy but rewarding, with a taste of France. Tea, coffee, filtered water on tap.

 

Feel

It’s not often that a group of parents come together in a totally relaxed setting.  We hope that you’ll make friends with others whose families are growing, share your stories of going from one to two (or more) little ones, and come up for air together.  

We also help you spend time with your partner via childcare and babysitting nights (hello, date night, it’s been a while!) and suppers are like ready made dinner parties.

Toddlers are entertained with new friends during the day and babies get quality time with less-stressed parents; which is one less (important) thing to worry about.

Massages and mindfulness sessions are also included, so you can really switch off and learn to keep calm, switch off and be more present when you are back home again too. Learn more about our Feel Good pillar here >>
