I am a qualified Personal Trainer who has a special interest in ladies health and fitness, in particular pre and postnatal exercise to optimise and ENERGISE a ladies life. This interest also expands to women in general, incorporating hormonal considerations, flexibility, strength, balance and other variables that may affect ones well-being.
I am also a Registered Nurse (with a background in emergency nursing) so combining health and fitness seems like a logical choice to help others live a health, energised, long, strong and fit life.
I have always had an active lifestyle, enjoying walking and team sports but my real fitness journey all started during my daily walks, pushing my second born in the pram on beautiful autumn days. I developed a motivation to get more active, fit and stronger for myself because it was making me feel great, reduce aches and pains and allowed me to complete daily ‘mum’ activities with ease.
I started to research more about specific pregnancy and post-natal exercise and have come to realise that this is such an important topic to be aware of to help maintain optimal functioning throughout pregnancy to prepare for birth and then safely and progressively return to movement and exercise in the post natal phase to avoid long term physical injuries. Focusing on incorporating foundational breathing, pelvic floor and core into your exercise and daily lives can make such a difference to your life, better to look after it than to have problems in these areas, trust me I know!!
So I am now on a mission to educate and help other ladies in performing exercises in a safe manner for their bodies prior, during and post pregnancy through to menopausal years and beyond to help them live a stronger, fitter, functional and energised life.
I also want to bring up our kids in an environment that is healthy and active.
Energise your core for a strong, functional, fit future!
