Through the Acorn app we’re able to support businesses that make our communities thrive. Everyday we learn more about our activities and how they enrich the wellbeing of children and families. Today, we hear about baby & toddler classes from Busylizzy, Guildford.
1. Please tell us a little about yourself and Busylizzy Guildford
Full Name Anna Jolley, owner of Busylizzy Guildford
Speciality Mummy fitness (pre and postnatal), baby and toddler classes
When the business was started 2011
Where you are based G. Live and Stoke Park
2. What motivated you to start supporting health and fitness for mums and little ones?
Busylizzy was started in Guildford in 2011 and I joined with my daughter in 2013 when she was 8 weeks old. We loved it so much getting to go to lots of different classes together and making so many new friends that when Busylizzy announced they were going to start franchising I bought their first franchise in Woking instead of returning to my job after maternity leave. I then bought the Guildford club from them a couple of years ago.
3. Tell us about a favorite moment teaching :)
I don't actually teach any classes myself, I have a fantastic team of professional instructors who teach for me. I manage everything and get to join in the classes with my little ones! The best bit for me is the lovely feedback I regularly get.
4. What’s included in your membership and what benefits can members expect
Our memberships work on a class credit system where members have credits they can use on all of our classes so they can try as many of our classes as they like and go to different classes each week! They get to book/cancel classes via our app or online up to 2 hours before the class starts! We also run various events such as picnics, talks, coffee mornings, parties etc.
5. Do you have any new projects or exciting things we should know about?
We have just launched our Mummy & Me Choir with Choir Belles which is proving to be very popular! It's on Fridays at 12:50 and mums can come along with their babies/toddlers and join in singing contemporary songs in harmony.
