Bumps & Burpees was founded by Charlie Launder in 2014.  

A time that is unbelievably special but also brings with it a lot of anxiety and uncertainty, especially around what is and isn’t safe. The Bumps & Burpees community is one that aims to provide information and motivation to help everyone enjoy their pregnancy and time as a Mum as much as possible. Life as a new and expectant mum brings enough challenges along the way and our goal is to make sure that exercise is not one of them. It is not only about guiding women safely through exercise during this time, but also helping them to fit it into their new lifestyle and hopefully enjoy it too.

Physical and emotional strength is at the forefront of everything we do, and helping you to realise the importance of looking after yourself as well as your baby is a big part of what we do. Learning how to keep fit and healthy as a new mum can feel intimidating so Bumps & Burpees is here to guide and motivate you when you need it. 

Our Purpose

Providing a safe space for women to feel supported and empowered through their pregnancy and into motherhood.

A Motherhood Community

Motherhood can be hard – but don’t feel alone. Share your stories and ask advice, there’s so much to gain from being part of the community. 

Strong for Life

Exercise through pregnancy and motherhood is a game changer. The benefits are endless – more energy, improved mood, self-care and endurance for mum life. 

Knowledge is Power

Your body goes through so many changes, by receiving expert advice and guidance, you know you are exercising in the correct way and keeping you and your baby safe.

What people say about us
  • Bumps & Burpees is so much more than fitness. My training sessions were something I looked forward to every week, they made me feel so positive and energetic I don’t know what I would have done without them. I would never have made it to the gym with a toddler and a baby so being able to train in my living room meant I had no excuses left. I really enjoyed exercising through my pregnancy and wish I had known about them for the first!

    Mum of two
  • Even though I have always exercised and felt confident in the gym it was so reassuring to have someone who could make sure I was doing things safely through my pregnancy. I totally relaxed and left the thinking to someone else, although pregnancy brain left me with no choice anyway! We exercise in the garden when its warm and in my kitchen when its not, its perfect and I recommend them to all my pregnant friends!

    Mum of Three
  • I have never felt so strong and energetic before. Despite the fact I am 34 weeks pregnant! I can’t thank Bumps and Burpees enough for sharing training videos and advice on their instagram. By making it so accessible, I was able to follow Charlie’s advice and exercises throughout my pregnancy. It gave me the confidence I needed to get in the gym and the structure I needed when I was in there. Thank you!

    Mum of one
  • I fully credit this programme with the easy pregnancy I enjoyed and my very quick recovery.

  • I felt completely confident that everything she asked me to do was only going to strengthen my mind and body for the whole 40 weeks of pregnancy and beyond.

  • I’m in better shape now, (6 months pregnant!) than I was before.
