Local mum Susie Lodge, owner of wikiplacesforkids.com, talks roller discos, buggy bootcamp, a new trampoline park at Xscape and nice walks with the family in a fun-filled January column for Celebrate:MK.
Happy New Year to you!
I hope you are well, have truly pigged out and enjoyed lots of quality family time?
The Wiki Family had a wonderful Christmas but if like me you are now desperate to get out of the house and feel more Superhuman than Supersloth, then check out these family-friendly ideas below to help you kick-start a few New Year’s Resolutions.
This first one is a personal favourite of mine. For either a proper giggle and/or a pure adrenaline rush, get yourself to one of the MK roller discos.
As well as chucking out some super shapes, feeling the wind through your hair, holding hands and having a generally brilliant time, you’ll also notice very shortly that your thigh and bum muscles have most definitely woken up from their Christmas sleep! Ouch!
For a serious, but fun work out with your babies, new mums get yourself booked into a class with Andy, aka MK Trainer!
The ultimate Buggy Bootcamp, this class will really push you out of your comfort zone and get you noticeable results fast.
In a group of other parents, all at the same stage as you with similar issues to overcome, you are in great company and will have all the support and encouragement you need.
And you’ll definitely make some buddies while you’re rediscovering the old you and getting some fresh air. Find out more at http://www.mktrainer.co.uk. The first session is free plus £10 off any monthly contract.
You don’t need to go far to find one of MK’s beautiful green spaces or surrounding country parks, so make a point of getting outside. Wellies, scarves and gloves at the ready – be it snow or shine.
You and the family should grab some quality time racing up the hills of Rushmere, Dunstable Downs, or Willen. All are pram and bike accessible!
I for one cannot hold back when I hit the trampoline park. There’s nothing like a good bounce for bringing out the kid in you!
The incredible Gravity is opening in February at Xscape and has something for everyone. Dodgeball, basketball, acres of trampolines and fitness classes too!
So much fun and you’ll definitely be feeling it for a few days after. The fun that keeps on giving!
