Mamafit has been voted Merseyside’s favourite adult class in a ‘mum’s choice’ award run popular parenting website Netmums!
‘Mamafit’ an initiative to provide pregnancy and postnatal exercise & lifestyle courses, has been voted amongst Britain’s best in a prestigious national competition.
Courses are delivered through children’s centres across Liverpool in partnership with Liverpool City Council Public Health and Liverpool Women’s Hospital (NHS) Trust.
This year 2014 Mamafit scooped one of the top awards in the ‘Classes for You’ competition, which is run by ‘Netmums’ – Britain’s biggest parenting site.
Over 1.7 million members were eligible to vote in a UK-wide competition, launched as an opportunity for those running adult classes to be recognized for their hard work in serving and improving local communities.
Mamafit was established to support women in Liverpool to be active during pregnancy and to help new mums get into a healthy lifestyle after their baby is born.
Paula Grey, Director of Public Health at Liverpool City Council said: “Mamafit is a fun way to promote the health and wellbeing of women which is crucial during pregnancy and in the early post natal period.
“We know we are getting it right when mums themselves give us such great feedback.”
Mamafit course leader Rob Lunn was delighted to be voted a local favourite: “It is a great accolade to be chosen as Netmums Favourite Class in Merseyside.
“It means so much more as it was voted for by mums and mums to be that have attended Mamafit classes.”
Mamafit will now be promoted through the coveted gold listing on the Netmums site, which is used by over a million people each week.
The initiative will also receive a special ‘Netmums Favourite’ certificate and a place on the Netmums Award Winners page.
