BEE Fit Book (Baby Enhanced Exercise Fitness)

Hello I am Gemma Nice and I am a Yoga Teacher. I have always had a dream to be able to write my very own book for mums get back into fitness and I am asking for each person to just donate £1. I know times are hard for everyone at the moment and that is why just 50p or £1 from every person will really help me to get this book off the ground and help mums get back into exercise after having their baby. Click on the video to watch My Story or read below. I am a 37 year old mum of 2 beautiful children. In June 2012 I suffered a miscarriage. To help me cope with the thoughts of why me, why us I used the power of yoga to help me get through it. Obviously we were devastated but I then went on to have 2 children afterwards. This then got me thinking that to get through this pain we suffered in our lives I used the power of yoga and breathing techniques. I then wanted to put this into a book and help other people get through their negative thoughts as well as bonding with their new born especially if they are not connecting with their child. I used yoga to help me get my pre baby body back. It takes 9 months for you to grow a baby and 1 year to get your pre baby body back. Sometimes people don't feel confident enough to exercise outside so I wanted to create a book when you can do exercises or yoga anywhere and any time. Who will benefit This book will be for new mums or parents wanting to get back into fitness and making fitness fun by including their babies and children into their workouts or yoga sessions. There are not many books if any, that incorporate children into your daily exercise routine. There are a lot of books for pre and post-natal and general exercise but nothing which helps both mum and baby of which my book does. This will be a really good seller as there is a target audience of new mums and the health advisers will always say keep active and get out of the house, even in the early days of having a new born. My idea is to publish in soft back and as an E-Book. It will be easy to access via a smart phone or tablet and will be easy to follow. Bee Fit is about incorporating exercise and yoga poses with your baby either attached to you in a baby wrap or sling or placed in a buggy and using the buggy for workouts. As a parent of two, I understand that time to work out or going to the gym is mostly non-existent. This book will give you tips and advice on how to work out using strength training and yoga incorporating your children into your workouts either at home or in the park. This is by means of baby wearing in a wrap/sling or using the buggy. There are 45 different exercises and yoga poses within the book including walking or running with the buggy, planks, strength training, lunges, arm stretches etc. There is a nutrition plan, and nutrition advice. There is also information on Diastasis Recti, relaxation and meditation and the exercises and yoga poses themselves. Included also is a four week yoga exercise training programme. The funds will be used for helping me to self publish my book. I am completely new to this so I need help with formatting and book design through to the Front Cover of which all this costs money. How soon I will need the funds, well it would be in around 4 months time for me to start getting people involved to help me. The support from this community will mean everything to me. I wanted to pass on my knowledge and information to new mums as I know exactly what they are going through and I know I've been there with wanting to loose my baby weight. This is will help new mums to connect with their babies. I have wanted to write this book for 6 years when I had Hugo. He was born in 2014 and I needed something to help me get back into shape. There are loads of mummy and baby classes out there but I wanted to create something that if you weren't a confident mum and have a 'mummy tummy' then I want you to workout when and wherever you are comfortable doing it. This book will just guide you. Its been my passion for years to write a book and to help people and now this is finally happening. I want to get my passion out there and support others mums. I know this will be an incredible community to help me get my dream off the ground. I am a Yoga teacher so this book is full of yoga poses and other exercises which I'm passionate about. I will be hugely grateful for your help as I am so passionate to help other new mums and I want you to have fun in the process. I know this book will be a huge success as it is totally needed in the market. Thank you so much for reading this. I really appreciate your efforts and helping me with this one amazing project.
