CrossFit South Brooklyn is excited to offer Diapers & Dumbbells, a postpartum fitness class designed to help new mothers and their partners safely return to exercise, connect with other parents, and develop the strength they need to support their growing babies. This is a one-hour class that focuses on postpartum rehabilitation, restorative exercises, strength training, and conditioning and includes time for socializing with other parents and their babies. Diapers & Dumbbells provides a supportive environment and is appropriate for individuals with or without previous CrossFit experience. Classes are open to mothers (and partners) of all fitness levels and their pre-crawling/pre-walking babies. Scaling options are available to allow anyone to participate and progress. We provide staffed child care in the same space for the duration of the class. This is an opportunity to work on your fitness while we care for your baby!
Days & Times
Our facility includes changing rooms (with showers and towel service) that may serve as a private nursing, pumping, or diaper-changing station.
Along with yourself and your baby, we recommend that you bring your typical baby changing supplies as well as a blanket to lay your baby on. We suggest bringing your baby to the class in a stroller so that they can be comfortable and easily wheeled around the gym during class.
This class is appropriate for mothers who have been cleared for exercise by their doctors and are at least 5 weeks postpartum. Our coaches are familiar with the special considerations of postpartum trainees and we encourage you to contact us with any questions or considerations you might have!
