It’s sweaty, it’s challenging, but most of all it’s fun! While a busy life is a happy life, it’s important to try and squeeze in time for yourself and your body, mama! Between work, the kids, friends and a social agenda, if you are seeking a fun (and can we say fabulous!) group to train with – Mom in Balance is perfect for you!
Designed especially for women who are pregnant, looking for a good recovery after birth or a good work-life balance, the workouts are designed in collaboration with the best gynaecologists and pelvic floor specialists and specially tailored to the pregnant, recovering and fit body. Started by Mum of 4 (so she knows her stuff!), Esther van Diepen, in collaboration with various experts, the workout is truly a unique sports program that Esther has been running for close to 10 years now! The local business owner (for Singapore), Jantien van den Berg, is passionate about helping mums get back on their workout journeys and you’ll often see her at the sessions, getting and helping other women get fitter!
So, what can you expect at their workouts mama? For one, you’ll be training outdoors in the fresh air, all year round! You are also assured of a functional total body workout specifically for the pregnant/recovering body. Special attention is taken for a strong back, stability of the pelvis, and awareness and recovery of the pelvic floor muscles – all sanctimonious to the Mom in Balance workout. With three different programmes on offer – for pregnant mums, post partum recovery and an intense Mpower HIIT workout, there’s something for every fitness level at MIB (Mom in Balance). And you’ll meet some amazing fellow mums, in the same stage of motherhood as you!

Psst…there’s also a code at the very end for a free trial!
Nervous about exercising when pregnant? Don’t worry, mama you’re certainly not alone! 39 year old, Nanou Hartlieb and mum of one, says it is the exact reason she opted to go with Mom in Balance.
“I did a lot of running, mountain biking and yoga and was looking for a workout that would help me maintain my physical activity levels in spite of being pregnant! I absolutely love the outdoors and there’s all that energy to burn too! I felt secure that somebody was giving the training and knew what to do and what not to do at this crucial stage of my life i.e, pregnancy. I chose Mom in Balance because I needed the exercise, but I also needed someone who had the knowledge about a pregnant body!”
Think pre or post natal workouts can be less challenging – it’s time to change that! A regular at their sessions, Jacqueline, 39 years of age and mum of one adorable girl says she was surprised by how challenging their workouts actually were!
“I was quite active before I became pregnant and did some research online on what kind of sport I could do during pregnancy. It seemed like all exercises for pregnant women are more on the relaxed side, so I was really excited having found MIB. And I must confess I was quite surprised how challenging pregnancy workouts could be! Besides training with a group, I love that MIB challenge me that extra bit especially for exercises that are not my favourites like pushups or burpees.”
Whether it’s losing the pregnancy weight or overall fitness you are after, Mom in Balance can work with you on your post birth goals, mama! 30 year old Angela, who joined Mom in Balance when pregnant with her daughter, agrees – wholeheartedly!
“After I found out that I was pregnant I was told that it’s better not to do high intensity sports, so I had to stop playing tennis. But I wanted to be fit during my pregnancy, therefore I found MIB which allows me to do more sports in a very safe way.
I started with light exercise after 7 weeks of giving birth and became more active as time went along. Their workouts helped me get back into shape very quickly and also helped to focus on myself besides only focusing on the baby. I feel great about myself now and hope that my daughter will benefit from the active lifestyle in the long term!”
