How did Kangatraining start?
Kangatraining started in Germany in 2008, after Founder Nicole Pascher had her third child Pamina in 2008. Nicole wanted to know how she could achieve a quality workout AND have her baby with her while working out. After some trial and error, Nicole knew one thing for certain, Pamina did not enjoy being in a pram watching her workout! She wanted to be carried and close to her mum.
AN IDEA WAS BORN!
As a very experienced Personal Trainer and specialising in pre and postnatal exercise, Nicole knew exactly how to structure a safe and effective exercise program for not only herself but for other new mums and their babies.
Fast forward a few years, and Kangatraining now offers many different postnatal classes that all have one thing in common:
THE FOCUS IS ON THE MUM!
