Guide To Teaching a Successful Buggy Beat Class and Commonly Asked Questions
There is a huge DEMAND for more Buggy Beat classes all over the UK and lowering the barrier to entry and making it easier for parents and guardians to exercise together in the fresh air in local parks with little ones
Are you a fitness professional or movement specialist.
You may consider teaching a BUGGY Beat class in your local park. The Buggy Beat course is certified by @CIMSPA so once certified you can add this onto your insurance.
Do You Need Permission To Operate a Class In Your Local Park
All local authorities around the UK have different park policies so find out who looks after your local parks and playgrounds with a google search and contact the department. Some authorities allow you to use the parks free of charge and to encourage exercise and usage of the park and some charge a fee either by the session or by the year so do your research and find out.
Buggy Beat is a wonderful way of encouraging local people to exercise and sets a great example to children and it gets local people into parks, so you may be able to talk with your local authority and come up with a win win for both parties.
How Do You Market Your BB Class?
Buggy Beat posts spread like wildfire. Mums LOVE sharing great info about classes with their friends so you will find your mixture of posts, graphics and videos will fly on social media.
Here at Buggy Beat HQ we film a new video for promotion every week that you can use and share with your potential clients on social media.
Marketing your class is all done online via Facebook and Instagram and the FB events app.
Network with all your local health professionals – Drs/Health Visitors/Midwives/Community Activity/Childrens centres.

Do You Cancel During Bad Weather?
Very rarely. All of my Buggy Beat clients are in a Facebook messenger group and if the weather is REALLY REALLY bad we may cancel. But over the last 16 months I have cancelled maybe 3 x. We wrap up, wrap the babies up and get stuck in come rain or shine. Its part of the fun
