Yummy Mummy

Reporter: Cassie Silver

It's off with the winter woolies and time for a kick start into Spring. Trainer, Max Tamatoa says HBF's group training is a great way to lose the extra winter kilos without weighing down your wallet.

Perth mum Vicki Howie, like many women, wants to drop a dress size. But finding the motivation is half the battle. "If you're not really in the mood and you wanna stay home and eat that extra dessert you feel like youre letting people down so its always good to have a buddy that calls you and says you going get up we need to go"

Mother of two Bianca Cross says she wants her pre-baby body back. But with a 3 and 4 yr old she's got her hands full. "So trying to find time during the day is actually quite hard because you have to stop and be on a time schedule"

"I think preparation is the key they need to think ahead" Nanny to the rich and famous, Angela Jacobsen, says a healthy mum is a happy mum. "When you're feeling fit your feeling alot better youve got more energy to be with your children as well"

Angela says mums can make more time for themselves by being more organised. "So in the morning its a bit of a rush to get all the kids in the car to school on time,well you can find an extra 5 minutes in the morning by getting the bags ready the night before you can put their lunch, water bottle, and hat in their and also put the bags in the car the night before"

The training sessions will be held on weeknights, lunch times and weekends all free from Monday until the end of October.
