Bring the whole family to these free, or inexpensive fitness activities.
As mentioned in some of my previous articles, it can be quite difficult to find time, without kids, to exercise. Gym memberships can also be quite costly, and impractical with our busy schedule.

Instead of trying to navigate your way around the website to find everything that you’re looking for, we have conveniently compiled all of the pieces into one, handy article. Simply read ahead, and if you see an exercise group that suits you, click on the link and it will take you to the article.
This article features exercise groups for mums with young bubs. It incorporates gentle strength training and cardio to help regain some of the lost fitness during your pregnancy. Bring your bub with you for extra bonding time while you work out.
There are three different exercise groups in this article, all in different locations:

Adelaide Aquatic Centre has an array of fitness programs for a variety of fitness types. Of course, there are lap pools, but there is also a fully stocked gym. You can choose between swimming, weights, cardio equipment, or fitness classes, both in and out of the pool. There is a Creche available for the littlies, and swimming lessons throughout the week.
For those who prefer to take their fitness to new heights, Mega Adventure Park is the place for you. This multi-levelled obstacle course will see you balancing, climbing, swinging, and jumping around the course until you get to the finish (or until you are too exhausted to move anymore). There is also the Sky Walk, and Mega Bounce, which will make your heart rate increase, and muscles shake.
