Bloomingfit.com: A New Personal Training Website for Pregnant and Post-Pregnancy Mums

LONDON, December 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Stephanie Briggs was diagnosed with a brain tumour a day after giving birth. With many women post pregnancy, getting into shape is a priority. For Stephanie the brain tumour removal had left her with double vision and put paid to her driving to the gym. A radical new personal training website for pregnant and post pregnancy mums - bloomingfit.com - enabled Stephanie to regain control of her life.

Alison Merry - ex-midwife and site founder says: "I have been a midwife and personal trainer for 15 years and bloomingfit.com embraces my passion for both professions. Women who are time poor or don't feel like making the trip to the gym can benefit hugely from a personal training website like bloomingfit.com".

Bloomingfit.com offers exercise programmes tailored to each trimester and provides advice on subjects from nutrition to post natal depression. Membership also helps mums along the road to recovery.

Stephanie Briggs says: "I was admitted for 19 hours of surgery five weeks after diagnosis and stayed in Bristol's Frenchay hospital for five weeks. When I went home I was weak - I couldn't even walk up the stairs without help. I'd never been so unfit and overweight. I felt dreadful. I just wanted to get back to normal".

Alison says: "Many mums can't wait to get their bodies back and exercise is key. Because women are extremely vulnerable after having given birth, Bloomingfit.com ensures that this is done safely and effectively. In Stephanie's case she was hell bent on getting in shape because now that she wore an eyepatch she didn't want people feeling sorry for her".

Stephanie says: "The Bloomingfit exercises, although simple, were tough for me but then I suppose I wasn't the average user. They start from scratch, though, and because you can work out any time you tend to get plenty of practice and consequently I was soon doing them with ease".

"In six months I regained more than my pre-pregnancy shape - I looked fitter than I had been in an age and was running too. The added benefit was that exercising really lifted my spirits. You've heard of a vicious circle well I had experienced an upbeat circle where good things fed off one another".

Alison and Stephanie met through a joint business acquaintance when Alison was looking for PR to help promote her site. Because at the time bloomingfit.com was being developed Stephanie was one of the guinea pigs used to help iron out glitches before going live. As a result the website was tried and tested by the time it went to market.

Alison says: "Ideally, women will sign up to the site when they first learn that they are pregnant that way they can do the exercises from 1st Trimester through to post pregnancy. We feel GBP9.99 is good value: there's so much more to the site like shopping, advice, chat rooms and the chance to show off your newborn on the notice-board".

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
