One of things that I’ve found hardest time-wise since becoming a parent, is finding the time to exercise (although that’s the excuse I use anyway!), and what to do with the children when you do. Of course, we do take turns to look after the kids whilst the other one goes to the gym/runs/plays football, but this obviously eats into our family time, something we’re not always willing to compromise on.
So when I got an email asking me if I’d like to try out a new class at my local David Lloyd gym called PRAMA Family Active with one of the children, I jumped at the chance. I chose to take Freddie (7) with me, as we were in need of some quality 1-2-1 time, and the kid has more energy to burn off than anyone I know. When I told him he was ridiculously excited, as some of the Crystal Palace FC players were going to be there before our class having a go at PRAMA themselves, and he couldn’t wait to meet them.
Year officially made, and I was the best mum ever!
So what is PRAMA Family Active, I hear you cry?
*PRAMA is available at selected David Lloyd gyms in London, see www.davidlloyd.co.uk for more details. Thank you David Lloyd for working with The Spirited Puddle Jumper.
