This episode of Beyond the Bump is brought to you by Nimble Activewear:
One of the things that we love about today's sponsor, Nimble Activewear is that they are so about empowering mothers to find their moments of active self-care day to day. 
The best friend founders are both moms themselves and have really come to realize the importance of taking care of yourself while taking care of the other little gremlins… I mean, cuties! 
They want mums to feel good while doing it too. Whether that be a simple morning meditation or a full-blown high-intensity training, Nimble Activewear is for you.  
They don't just care about your tush, though. They care about the environment and they use some incredible fabrications comprised of used recycled plastic bottles. 
Okay, we know that doesn't sound comfortable, but it is actually amazing. And it blows our mind that each pair of move light nimble, activewear leggings have an average of six recycled bottles in them. People are so clever.  
Anyways, we could go on and on about this brand forever, but just take our word for it. Check out nimble activewear online at nimbleactivewear.com and use the code: BTB20 for 20% off. 
Oh, and they have a new store coming to James Street in Brisbane soon.  
Thank you for making this episode possible!
