Our ‘Take 10 Workouts’ have been so popular in the APP that we have added 7 NEW ones!

The ‘Take 10’ workouts are varied to avoid monotony and specific to certain muscle groups to ensure they’re all sufficiently worked out. This means you can work out once or twice a day and definitely cover all parts of your body in a week! 10 minutes is a short enough time that beginners or mums who may be scared to start exercise can mentally achieve the workout!

We have added 7 NEW Take Ten Workouts – Hand Weights with Laura.


Along with fitness and food, we have added a new ‘WELLBEING’ area to the Healthy Mummy App. Along with all our meditation options, here you will find amazing videos of recipes, and smoothies.

For the challenge we will be adding Mental Health videos and Budget & Meal Prep videos so be sure to check it out!
