Confidently return to running after giving birth

A 12 week program designed by an experienced physiotherapist to help new mums safely, and successfully, return to running postpartum.

Are you ready to reboot your running routine after having a baby?

Do you want to feel strong, confident, and empowered in your postpartum body? 

We know that being a new mum is both exciting and challenging, and that taking care of yourself and investing in your recovery can sometimes take a backseat to taking care of your little one.

That’s why we’ve created a 12 week return to running program specifically designed for new mums like you who want to get back to running safely and successfully.

With Postpartum Running Reboot, you’ll gain access to a 12 week program designed by a qualified physiotherapist who specialises in postpartum recovery, to gradually and safely build your strength and endurance, with a focus on injury prevention and core restore and rehab.

We understand that every new mum’s journey is different, which is why our program is tailored to different stages of recovery.

Over the course of 12 weeks, you’ll follow a comprehensive (but simple) plan that includes:

Hey Mama!

Hello, new mums! As a qualified physiotherapist and a mother of three beautiful daughters, I understand how important it can be to get back into exercise and fitness after giving birth. It’s natural to want to feel like yourself again and take care of your health and wellbeing.

But here’s the truth: your body has gone through a lot of changes during pregnancy and birth, and needs some TLC.  Instead of focusing on getting back to your pre-baby weight, why not approach postpartum fitness with a specific plan that can help you feel your best, whilst safely helping you to achieve your goals?

That’s where FitNest Mama comes in. Whether you’re a first-time mum or a seasoned pro, we’re here to support you on your journey to better health and fitness. Our goal is to help you have the best possible experience before, during, and after birth.

Our goal is to help you create a fitness plan that’s tailored to the needs of mothers, so that you can feel confident and empowered as a new mum. Let’s work together to make it happen!

As someone who is 12 months postnatal I found the classes still challenging and a great balance between strength and core. I loved that the exercises could be tailored to my current level of ability and goals.

Return to Running Program

Postpartum Running Reboot

This 12 week Return to Running Program will help you:

  • Build running confidence
  • Rehab & strengthen your postpartum body
  • Improve your fitness
  • Boost your wellbeing and inner strength


How does this mini course differ from the main signature FitNest Mama membership?

This 12 week program is specifically designed to help you get into high impact exercise, and includes a running plan, plus 2 progressive weekly workouts for 12 weeks. It is perfect if you don't want a large range of postnatal workouts to progress your postnatal rehab, and you specifically want to focus on running.

If you would also like access to all our postnatal workouts and recovery resources, you would benefit from joining the monthly FitNest Mama Membership, which also includes access to this course. With the monthly membership, you can cancel at any time.

For a small one-off fee, this program is perfect if you're 12+ weeks postpartum, or if you don't want an ongoing monthly commitment.

What stage of postpartum is this program good for?

This 12 week program is perfect for any stage of postpartum over 12 weeks, once you've received the doctors clearance to return to exercise.

If you are pregnant, or under 12 weeks postpartum, you would benefit from our main signature membership, FitNest Mama.

I am already going to the gym, is this still useful?

This 12 week program has been created by a physiotherapist. It has tests and checklists to help you understand if and when your body is ready for high impact exercise.

Then, it gradually progresses you through the steps to help you safely, and successfully, return to running.

This program can temporarily replace, or compliment any existing gym memberships you are completing.

I'm busy! Will I still get value out of this 12 week program?

We know how busy life is, especially during motherhood.

This 12 week program has quick and easy to complete workouts that you can watch at your convenience.

You also get a whole 12 months access to all the program before it expires, so you have plenty of time to complete at your own pace.

How can I access the sessions?

You will be emailed a new program every week.

You can access all sessions via your computer, tablet or phone, and you’ll receive instructions on downloading the mobile app.

How often do doors open to this 12 week program?

Every few months the doors open. If you want to gain instant access to this program, it is available inside our signature program, FitNest Mama Postnatal Program. Gain access to a 7 day free trial today.
