FAQ

Pregnant workout
I exercise frequently and I’m in good shape, when should I switch over to the Pregnancy Workouts?

You can best make the switch to the Pregnancy Workout around 16 weeks. Once you have entered the second trimester, you should no longer be actively training your rectus abdominus. Would you like to train more than 1x a week? No problem, we also have a Pregnancy unlimited membership that allows you to train 2x a week.

I have been doing the Pregnancy Workout for three months and I would like to continue.

No problem, your membership continues automatically until your due date. If you would like to stop prior to your due date, you may do so at any moment by contacting us at info@mominbalance.co.uk or via the contact form.

I want to stop with the Pregnancy Workout, what should I do?

There is a 3-month minimum membership period required for the Pregnancy Workout. Your membership stops automatically when you reach 40 weeks. If you would like to stop before your due date, but after you have completed the 3-month period then send an email to info@mominbalance.co.uk. Are you past-due but still have the energy to continue with the workouts? Then those workouts are on us!

I would like to participate in the Pregnancy Workout but I can only do so for a couple weeks because I am close to my due date.
That's possible! It is never too late to work on your fitness, and it will work in your benefit during labor. Your membership will continue until your due date. If you wish to end your membership prior to your due date you can contact us at info@mominbalance.co.uk or via the contact form on the website.
I'm pregnant, when can I start with the workouts?
You can start the moment you find out you're pregnant. Most participants start the workouts between 12 and 16 weeks and you can continue to train with us until your due date.
Back in Shape workout
I would like to start with the Back in Shape Workout, what must I do?

You can sign up on the website. You will receive a confirmation of receipt after signing up and approving the General Terms and Conditions. We will assign you to a group and email you with all the details pertaining to the workout (exact meeting location and the name and contact details of the trainer).

It’s been a few months since I gave birth, which workout is suitable for me?

We recommend doing the Back in Shape Workout for at least three months prior to moving up to the Mpower Workout. If you are exceptionally fit and would like to move up more quickly, please discuss this with your trainer.

I've just given birth, when can I start the workouts?

You can begin the workouts starting from 6 weeks after giving birth, or 8 weeks after Cesarean section. Did you have a difficult childbirth with complications? Check first with your gynecologist before starting the fitness program.

WHAT DOES MPOWER HAVE TO OFFER BESIDES THE WORKOUT?
In addition to the workouts, you get home routines and inspiration on themes such as body and mind. The home routines are offered every three months with a clear schedule that can be carried out at home and at your own level. That way you get more out of your workout! Furthermore, Mpower works with personal goals and things are made measurable.
Mpower workout
I HAVE A GOOD PHYSICAL FITNESS, ARE THE MPOWER WORKOUTS CHALLENGING ENOUGH FOR ME?

Certainly! The Mpower training sessions are challenging sessions in which you can challenge yourself on your own level. Also, at different training locations we work towards a training goal, such as (ultimately) participating in runs.

I HAVE NOT DONE ANY SPORTS FOR A WHILE, CAN I JOIN THE MPOWER TRAINING IMMEDIATELY?

It is possible to construct your training at your own level within the Mpower workout. We will motivate you to follow the workouts weekly so that you will feel top-fit in no-time.

IS MPOWER FOR EVERY FITNESS LEVEL?

The Mpower workout is for all levels. Even when you are not (yet) fit. Our professional trainers advise you which exercises you can and cannot do yet.

What is Mpower?

Mpower is focused on ambitious and active women who want to be top fit. Women who want to be challenged and who always strive to get the best out of themselves. Mpower is not specifically for mums, but for every woman. The focus is on strengthening yourself through sport, both mentally and physically.

Membership
How do I end my membership?

Send an email to info@mominbalance.co.uk together with the cancel per date and preferably the reason why. You will then receive a confirmation of cancellation.

How do I pay my membership fees?

The payment will be automatically deducted from your bank account every month. The payment is always deducted at the end of the month, so you only pay for the number of lessons you used. See also our Terms and Conditions.

I can not make it to my class every week, can I just attend a Mom in Balance class on a different day?

We strive to have stable groups each week because we find this is best for participants. If you are unable to attend class on your assigned day you can easily change your lesson with the Mom in Balance Members App.

I have done a trial workout and would like to get a full subscription, what do I have to do?

Great that you would like to exercise with Mom in Balance! To start your membership please fill out the sign up page.

I would like to sign up again but still have my package from the previous time. Do I get a discount?

If you have previously participated in the Pregnant Workout or the Back in Shape Workout, and you still have all the stuff from the package, you will get 1 free lesson as a gift. Please make mention in the comments section if you have previously participated and we will adjust your fee accordingly.

General
Are the workouts always outside, even in the winter?

Yes! It is especially refreshing to exercise outdoors during the cold winter months when you are often cooped up indoors.

Are there workouts on national holidays?
The workouts take place year-round, with the exception of national holidays.
Do the workouts take place even when it rains?

The workouts will go on come rain or come shine. The trainer will make sure you stay warm during the winter workouts. A light rain jacket can be very helpful during the workout when it rains. Only in the case of very heavy rain or sleet will the workout be cancelled. This will be communicated to you by email at least one hour prior to the start of the workout. By inclement weather always check your email prior to departing for the workout. If your workout is canceled, you may make it up on another day.

I am really out of shape, can I still participate?

Of course you can join! The Mom in Balance Fitness Program is suitable for all fitness levels. The trainer ensures correct differentiation within the group. Are you still unsure? Then sign up for a trial lesson and decide for yourself whether you like it or not (which we cannot imagine!).

I applied for a trial workout but cannot make it on the day that was assigned, can I still change it last minute?

You can schedule the session again to join the workout. Please email us to plan a new day for your trial session.

I go on vacation, can I make up the lessons that I will miss?

Yes, you can make up the lessons you miss during your Holidays. You can use the Mom in Balance APP to register to reschedule your workouts.

I have an injury/complications, what should I do?

When you are unable to continue your workouts because of an injury or complications, please let us know through info@mominbalance.co.uk. We will pause your subscription and will re-activate it when you are recovered. Also always consult your doctor or midwife for advice.

I have problems with my hips/pelvic instability, can I still participate in the workouts?

You can certainly participate. Be sure to let us know so the trainers can keep it into account during the workout. Continuing with movement and building muscle strength is important, particularly when there are complaints. We work closely with pelvic specialists.

I have received a free trial session coupon, how can I use this?

Great that you come and join the workout! You can apply through the website and by using the code on the coupon you will be enrolled. Our planning people will let you know by email in which group you can participate.

It is really cold outside, is the workout still going on?

The outdoor workouts take place throughout the entire winter! Only in the case of heavy rain or sleet are the workouts canceled. It is especially invigorating to exercise outdoors during the cold winter months, when you are often cooped up indoors.

What do I need to bring to the workout?

We recommend bringing a bottle of water, and of course, a good attitude!

What type of clothing should I wear during the workouts?

Comfortably fitting athletic wear and shoes. In the colder months we recommend layers, a hat and gloves. This will help keep you warm and provide you with the opportunity to remove layers if you get too warm.

Where can I find the Terms and Conditions of Mom in Balance?

You can download the Terms and Conditions by clicking on the link listed at the bottom of every page of the website.

Where can I leave my things during the workout?

The trainers have a backpack to store keys and cell phones. Jackets and water bottles can be set down at the location of the workout.
