It’s that time of year again, mamas: we’ve all over-indulged during the holidays and are looking to hopefully shed some of those stubborn December pounds. Or perhaps we’ve just been eyeing 2015 as the year to finally get fit.

But you’re in luck: these superstar trainers will come to you! Whether working out at your condo gym or the park across the street, they will conform to your schedule and location to ensure you stick to your goals, get fit and meet all your supermum obligations.
