Nordic Fit Mama

Nordic Fit Mama is a health and wellbeing programme recently launched into the UK to support mothers in their post-partum journey. It was created by Riina Laaksonen, Finland’s best-known influencer in pre-and postnatal exercise. A mother of three boys, Riina is a personal trainer and it was her own experiences of post-natal recovery which inspired her to start Nordic Fit Mama in 2017. Since then, she has brought together experts in maternal wellbeing, to create a holistic post-natal health programme.

Nordic Fit Mama features a six-week exercise programme which has been approved by physiotherapists and gynaecologists and consists of a research-backed series of exercises for new mums. It takes just 10 minutes a day with a mantra ‘do what you can and have the energy for’. The programme focuses on pelvic floor and core exercises, adding energy and well-being to daily life whilst addressing issues such as diastasis recti and back pain.

For black Friday they are offering 50% off the Nordic Fit Mama health and wellbeing programme (post natal) – running NOW until 29th November (usual RSP £99)
