Friends of Buggy Bootcamp Manly
Buggy Bootcamp is big on community spirit and believes in the power of partnerships, networks and local support. We aim to create a network of businesses with a post natal and/or fitness focus on the Northern Beaches so that our members have easy access to a variety of services and knowledge.
See below for links to our little business community and stay tuned for details of their offers and events.
Get a full post-natal assessment and pelvic-floor peace of mind before starting exercise again
Jenni Davies at Beaches Pelvic Physio is a physio who specialises in pelvic floor and pre/post-natal health. At Buggy Bootcamp, even if you ‘feel fine’, we recommend getting a full initial screening after giving birth so that you can exercise without worry or causing yourself any long term damage.
A Mum and very active herself, Jenni ‘gets it’ and provides great pragmatic advice and programmes to get you and your pelvic floor back on track. Buggy Bootcamp members and those interested in starting Buggy Bootcamp receive 40% off an initial consultation – email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and just do it!
Chat to Jenni Davies on the 1st Friday of every month. At the end of the Buggy Bootcamp session, Jenni will be there to answer any questions about post-natal/general niggles, check any ab separation and give pelvic floor advice. No need to book in, just come along and have a chat.
Look awesome in lululemon gear!
For quality, comfort, genuine staff and just all round awesomeness, you can’t beat lululemon for running and yoga gear. Carly, Buggy Bootcamp’s head trainer and owner, is a proud Alumni Ambassador for the lululemon Warringah store so stay tuned for details of the next collaborative community event!
See Village Chiropractic Manly for all your spinal aches and pains
See our preferred Chiro for all your spinal aches and pains – although chiropractic treatment is used most frequently to relieve low back pain, studies have found it to be effective for a variety of conditions, such as migraines, neck and shoulder pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. The guys at this local practice follow a holistic approach and chiro treatment is just one aspect of the wellbeing services they provide. Contact Village Chiropractic Manly on 02 9976 6311 to book an initial assessment with Ravi or Jason.
The Bumpy Road
Are you struggling with this bumpy road of motherhood?” Introducing Belinda Williams – she is a mother of two and local psychologist on a mission to improve emotional wellbeing in mothers. Belinda recognised that there were many women struggling with the demands and adjustments of motherhood but not seeking help because of a lack of approachable and available services, so she has set about to close this gap. Belinda supports women with the challenges of pregnancy, postnatal wellbeing, relationship troubles, parenting and offers career coaching to women navigating work life balance struggles. To help break down the intimidating stereotype surrounding counselling and coaching, she offers walk and talk sessions in and around North head and other beautiful tracks around Manly so you can get your emotional and physical health fix all in one. www.thebumpyroad.com.au

Operating from brand new Whistler Street premises, MGS have sorted Carly and many of her clients out in the past! Don’t ignore a weak pelvic floor (we don’t want stuff falling out!) or persisting injuries, give MGS a call on 02 9976 2666 for first class physio treatment by experienced, knowledgeable staff. Excellent women’s health physios are also based at this practice for post natal concerns such as:
• Pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain
• Upper back and neck pain during and post pregnancy
• Wrist pain often experienced post pregnancy
• Pelvic floor strengthening exercises and core strength training
• Abdominal diastasis assessment and advice regarding appropriate management
Get straight talking, no-nonsense nutrition advice from Mad on Nutrition
At Buggy Bootcamp we focus on the mental and well being benefits of exercise for new Mums rather than weight-loss and believe that nutrition is a whole other career best left to the professionals. We therefore refer our clients onto Tamara Madden from Mad on Nutrition for any general or sports specific nutrition advice – Tamara provides top notch assessments and gives pragmatic advice that can easily be incorporated into daily routines. No jumping on the latest fad diet bandwagon here!
