have always been passionate about exercise and used to combine my career with a number of team sports including netball, ultimate frisbee, tennis and outdoor boot camps before having two children. 9 years ago when I was on my first maternity leave I enjoyed taking my baby along to an exercise class, it was a fantastic way to meet like-minded people and I also loved training outdoors – this inspired me to change career and become a personal trainer and I've not looked back since...
I started running buggy fitness classes 9 years ago however, over time as my children have grown and up and my clients have stayed with me, I have carried on my learning journey and expanded my knowlege to include the peri menopause and menopause period. I have mums ranging in age from 30-55 in all my classes and I think there is a great sense of comaradery exercising through life stages together.
Since 2013 I have been a Holistic Core Restore® coach which means I have a deep understanding of the body changes and issues women go through both in terms of pelvic floor and how this relates to the core. I run the Holistic Core Restore® Everywoman programme which is a great way to learn how to reconnect with your pelvic floor and core again.
I continue to attend courses on an annual basis since qualifying as a personal trainer and am passionate about women's wellness. Whether you're pregnant for the first time or an experienced mum to many children or going through the menopause, I can help you get fitter and stronger with tailored exercises that will leave you feeling more able to tackle the demands of daily life. My classes are very sociable too so hopefully you'll also get to meet lots of new friends along the way.
