Win a set of Virgin Active Pop Fit classes for pre and post “pop” moms (this will make a great gift too!)

May 12, 2014

A few weeks ago I wrote here about Virgin Active’s new Pop Fit classes, which are great exercise sessions for pregnant women and new moms, and the great news is that we’re giving away eight sessions (worth R782) to one reader this week. And even if you’re not a new mom or pregnant, you can still enter and give the prize to someone else – it will make a great gift for its physical and feel-good benefits.

More about Pop Fit

Pop Fit classes are taken by instructors who understand the effects of pregnancy on the body and the period it takes to return to its prenatal state. These instructors will ensure you’re doing each exercise correctly and safely, maximising the benefits of the class and minimising the risks.

Each class will have some low-impact aerobics, resistance and conditioning training as well as stretch and relaxation.

Pop Fit also focuses on muscle strength and flexibility through static stretching which:

• Helps get rid of muscle tension and make your body feel more relaxed

• Increases the range of movement of your joints and muscles so that your body can work more efficiently

• Prevents any muscle soreness and muscle tears and facilitate recovery from soft tissue injuries.

For more info, go to myvirginactive

To enter to win

Simply comment below and your name will go into the draw. The giveaway closes on Friday 16 May at 9am, after which a winner will be announced on the Rattle and Mum Facebook page, and then emailed. This giveaway is open to South African residents only, and the prize cannot be exchanged for cash or other workouts.

    I had a Baby on the 23rd of Feb this year and I’m struggling in getting rid of the big belly, I tried tying but it doesn’t seem to be working. The PopFit would be perfect to get back in shape and be ready for summer.

    I’m a new mom to a 3 week old baby girl. It hasn’t been easy since its my 1st baby. I have very good days and some are worse than others. But im enjoying the journey of seeing her grow each day. I wouldn’t trade this for anything in the world. This prize is what I need right now to get strength from all the sleepless nights. 🙂
