Tell us about Busylizzy Horsham & Crawley...
Busylizzy is a unique concept set up in order to revolutionise the world of mum, baby and toddler classes. We’re open 51 weeks a year and don’t have termly intakes or waiting lists. All classes are booked online up to 30 minutes beforehand with our simple ‘self service’ booking system online or via the app. Don’t fancy it on the morning? Then just cancel yourself off the class – no problem!
Membership is super flexible with ‘pay as you go’ ‘Pick n Mix’ and Unlimited options to suit everyone’s diary and giving you access to over 25 unique classes aimed at children under four – including Baby Boogie, Baby Signing, Baby Picassos, Mini Dancers and many more. We’ve not forgotten mums either with Mummy&Me Pilates, Yoga, Buggy Fitness and Aerobics – with no childcare required! No two weeks need to be the same again!
Members also benefit from free educational talks and guest speakers and regular coffee mornings where you can meet other like minded mums, swap tips, share stories and relax.
Forget dusty halls and cramped cafes – Busylizzy only operates in beautiful venues which are well equipped for parents and children alike: clean baby change, plenty of room for buggies and high chairs – plus somewhere you can grab a decent coffee too!
How long have you been running your business?
Busylizzy has been running in Horsham and Crawley since April 2016 and I’ve been a member since then, but I’m just taking over as club owner! It’s a very exciting time and I’m really enjoying getting stuck in!
Tell us more about the classes…
Our baby classes are designed to be nurturing, calming and supportive and range from sessions for newborns through to more active / adventurous types. Music and Baby Signing help promote development, Baby Boogie will have them singing and wiggling about, and Baby Karma, Massage and Yoga will relax and restore mum and baby alike.
When babies get too big for the younger classes, they can graduate to our Active Tots range. Fun, upbeat and educational active tots classes designed to develop and nurture young minds and bodies, our ‘Mini’ range of classes has been specially developed with active babies in mind.
Our signature Mummy & Me fitness classes help mums get back to pre-pregnancy shape and fitness levels, and are all taught by post-natally qualified instructors so you know you’re in safe hands. Pilates and Yoga are there to tone and strengthen, Aerobics, Buggy Fitness & Bootcamp to up your cardio. The best part? You bring your little one along while you work out, so no childcare required.
What are your favourite things about Busylizzy?
I joined Busylizzy as a member when I was relatively new to the area so the main benefit for me was the community of like-minded mums that I was able to meet through the classes. It’s a really sociable club and we’ve had nights out as well as seeing each other during the day with our little ones.
I’m also a bit of an exercise addict and it can be tough to fit it in when you’ve got little ones so the ability to attend fitness classes with my littlest son was really useful for me. Moreover, the ability to book into a class at the touch of a button on my phone and then easily cancel if I’d had a bad night (a frequent occurrence) without feeling like I was wasting my money was brilliant.
What do you love most about your work?
The reason I wanted to take the club on was because I found it so useful as a mum myself! I love the community it creates and all the opportunities it gives mums to get out of the house and do something fun with their children.
Have you got anything special planned for Christmas?
Yes – it’s party time! We’ve got two special Christmas parties planned in December – and they’re open to members and non members alike so come and join us for our special festive events full of jingle bells, classic Christmas tunes and some tasty treats! Best Christmas jumpers, reindeer / elf outfits (whatever says Christmas to you) win prizes on the day!
Our Crawley cracker will be at The Hawth on Thursday December 15th at 11am, while Horsham will play host to a Pavilions in the Park party on Monday 19th, also at 11am.
Look out for the Facebook event postings or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place if you’re not yet a member.
What is your favourite thing about Christmas and why?
The meteoric excitement levels of our 4 year old as he writes his letter to Santa and gets ready for the big day – it’s hilarious!
Describe a little about what you will be doing at our wonderful fair:
We’re going to be at the Little Duckling event with some special gingerbread people for little people to ice, as well as being on hand to give parents more information about what we do.
Where can we see more?
