A FREE mother and baby workout session is taking place in South Ockendon on Friday.

The half-hour taster session where the baby is used as a weight in the routine is part of a new venture called Little One's Workout by dance teacher Veronica Briones Wilde.

Mother-of-one, Veronica, 32, from South Ockendon said when she became a mum there was no exercises she could do with her baby.

The session will take place from 10am to 10.30am at the South Ockendon Community Forum in Derwent Parade on Friday (January 28).

Those that like it can then sign up to a ten week course.

The price is £65 for ten weeks, each weekly session will be held at the community forum and last 45 minutes.

A Facebook page is also available for Little One's Workout to see what the classes are like.
