MUM'S SCOOTER CLUB
Simple ways to keep you and your family fit with Micro Scooters
We've been so impressed by lots of Mums who have written to us about their fitness programmes using scooters, we've decided to roll with it. Working with Mary-Ann Elder, a family fitness specialist from the South of England, we've created three, simple-to-follow programmes. These are aimed at:
- post-natal women
- women and children
- general fitness
We-ve also included images withthe exercises so you can see how they should be done and where you can go wrong.
We've designed them in a way that means you can print them out and take them with you in a handy format.
CREATE A CLUB
You can do all these exercises on your own. But it's often easier and more fun to exercise with other people. Why not create a Mum's Scooter Club with some of your friends?
Scooting provides a great way to unwind after a stressful day, whatever time of the year it is. We've got some great gadgets you can add to your scooter to ensure you can be seen and heard whatever the weather conditions.
The beauty of scooters is that you can ride them on pavements, in the park – pretty much anywhere where there's a safe open space. This means you can change your training route on a regular basis so preventing boredom setting in. If you want to encourage other women to join your Mum's Scooter Club, we've created a poster template that you can complete and pin to notice boards at your children's school, the library and even the local shop.
Using a scooter is a great way to exercise – it's kinder on your knees than cycling, for a start. What's more, the scooter itself can be used almost like a piece of gym equipment in your exercise programme. Try doing that with a mountain bike!
By getting scooter fit, you'll be able to keep up with your children as they scooter to school. It's a great way to avoid traffic as well as doing your bit for the environment – a lot more cost-effective too.
Scooting is also a great way of getting around a busy city. Whether it's commuting to work or taking the family on a sight-seeing tour, you'll find yourself getting to places more quickly and less stressed if you use a scooter.

Is there anything about on-going maintenance for scooters?
