OptiMum Health and Fitness for Women

Back to Activities

With OptiMum Health & Fitness for Women, Nikki Baring offers exercise classes, workshops, coaching & other support to improve the health & fitness of women, with a particular emphasis on pelvic health.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • some women avoid movement when they have pelvic floor issues, but Nikki encourages women to keep moving and feel more confident about their bodies;
  • Nikki adapts sessions to meet individual needs, so everyone is supported whatever their current level of fitness;
  • OptiMum is as much about supporting a community of like-minded women as it is about movement and exercise.

“Over the years I have tried many, many different kinds of exercise including a wide variety of classes. The truth is… I don’t enjoy exercise, I endure it because I know it is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. I have done six barre classes with Nikki now and I can honestly say that I love it. I genuinely look forward to the classes and I am keen to practice at home using Nikki’s online videos. The classes are fun, and I feel like I am getting a good workout, which is low impact, which I personally prefer. The music keeps me motivated and adds to the enjoyment of the class! I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
