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. Bring your baby and enjoy an hour of fitness and community!

Days & Times
Our facility includes changing rooms (with showers and towel service) that may serve as a private nursing, pumping, or diaper-changing station.
Diapers & Dumbbells is open to everyone. No prior training experience is required.
First-time visitors get a free class! Please follow this link to sign up and fill out the waiver. Arrive to class at least 15 minutes before your first class so our front desk staff can get you set up.
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.
Classes are led by three coaches to ensure close attention to each participant and help parents manage their babies so they can get the most out of class. We encourage new parents or parents-to-be to contact Coach Melissa with questions or concerns.
