Branding Shoot with Becca of ‘These Mums Do’
As a massive part of the Sale community, I was really chuffed to be invited by Becca of ‘These Mums Do’ to tag along and photograph one of her post natal fitness classes in Worthington Park this week.
Becca is a personal trainer who helps loads of women in Trafford to keep fit with her super popular group sessions ranging from post natal fitness classes in the park (with babies in tow in their prams!) to women’s only run clubs, with 1:1 fitness training and regular zoom sessions thrown in too!
‘These Mums do’ classes and run clubs provide so much more than just fitness training and the chance to achieve fitness goals though..they are a really supportive, fun and friendly environment for women to get together; often creating new friendships and a support network at a time when it is so needed, such as navigating life as a new mum or when new to the area.
In recognition of her role in the community, Becca was recently selected as one of the ‘Let’s do this’ Manchester Icons ahead of the Great Manchester Run next month, an honour which found her own image projected onto electronic billboards in Manchester, including the huge one in Piccadilly Gardens!
During my time tagging along at the post natal class there was such a warm, friendly atmosphere between the mums and Becca, I really think that comes through in the images. There was plenty of chat and the feeling that this was a most welcome chance for mums of new little babies to get together. Becca never forgot the youngest members of the class though, helping to keep the babies entertained in their prams and rocking grizzly babies prams back and forth so mums could keep exercising..all whilst managing to demonstrate the next set of exercises in each circuit!
After grabbing a few useful detail shots of exercise equipment at the end of the class, I had a few minutes to capture some laidback headshots of Becca for use in promoting the constantly growing business. Then it was time for Becca to rush off to her next session..this time a local 1:1 session at a client’s home.
Becca was kind enough to answer a few of my questions so you can read a little bit more about her and ‘These Mums Do’ below.
