It’s hard enough to find time to exercise as a mum, but doing it in solitude is nearly impossible.

We’ve put together a list of options for exercising with little ones close by, in lots of different areas in the Central Coast:


Unlike general gym classes, mums and bubs classes are much more focused on helping mums regain their strength, energy and flexibility.

Most incorporate yoga or pilates, which is ideal for mums who have weakened core muscles from pregnancy and carrying their babies and toddlers everywhere.

There are several classes where mums can attend with young children including:

The Yoga Collective in Terrigal on Fridays from 1-2pm.
Michelle’s Pilates at North Avoca Surf Club on Thursdays at 10:30am and 7pm.
Pilates with Nikki at Bateau Bay on Thursdays and Wamberal Memorial Hall on Fridays.
Modern Organic yoga at Long Jetty on Fridays at 11am.
Umina Beach Yoga every Wednesday at 1:15am.
Landette Health at Erina, which has pilates and general fitness classes from Monday to Friday, and a fenced in play area for kids who are mobile.
Kangatraining classes are starting soon in Norah Head, Bateau Bay and Tuggerah, and involve working out while wearing your baby in a carrier.
Mums & Bubs fitness classes are held at Lakehaven Recreation Centre every Tuesday and Friday at 9:30am and they’re completely free!

Group Training

If you like the social, outdoor aspect of exercise, group training might be a better fit for you. These companies are known for having child friendly sessions:

Michelle’s Fit Angels at Warnervale.
Mix Fitness holds morning group training sessions at Copacabana Beach, with a different focus each day such as boxing, strength and tabata circuit.
Leading Edge Personal Training has a postpartum program that meets at Terrigal Rotary Park on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings where you can interact with your baby during each exercise.

Gyms With Creches

Gyms offer mums the opportunity to do group classes and work out alone, which is why more gyms are catering to families with crèches.

Crèches provide mums with a few hours to exercise and shower in peace, for a small fee. All the gyms below take infants through to children up to 12 years old, and have childminders that will change nappies and feed bottles to babies.

Mingara One Fitness at Tumbi Umbi has gym equipment, a pool, and mums and bubs fitness classes. The Playhouse crèche attached to the club is open seven days a week, and takes kids starting at 6 weeks for $10 per child for up to 3 hours.
Active Fitness at the Doyalson-Wyee RSL is open Monday to Saturday and charges only $5/child or $8 for 2 or more children 6 weeks or older for a whole week for members or $3.50 per child for casual crèche visits.
Peninsula Leisure Centre (PLC) at Woy Woy has a gym and pool. Their crèche is open to children 6 weeks and over from 8:15am until 12:30pm and charges $6.90 per child for non-members and $4.40 per child for members.
Genesis Fitness at the Central Coast Leagues Club in Gosford has morning and afternoon sessions from Monday to Saturday at their crèche, for a fee of $3.50 per child, starting at 12 weeks of age.
