Prior to starting in the fitness industry, I worked as a radio presenter at London radio stations including BBC Radio London and then as a senior project director for a global advertising agency. At the advertising agency, ironically, my clients included a cigarette brand, Foxes Biscuits and Anchor Butter!
After 10 years in this industry, I was feeling low on energy and out of shape. I decided to do something about it so I joined local exercise classes and read about how to eat more healthily. After a year of making changes to my eating habits and exercising, I felt far fitter, looked in much better shape and had heaps more energy! I then took my fitness to another level and then trained for marathons and triathlons.
With my new passion for fitness, I wanted to help others achieve the same as I had so I certified as an advanced level personal trainer and then took additional qualifications in prenatal and postnatal exercise and nutrition. I started training women, many of whom were either pregnant, had given birth or had young children. Many of these women reached out to me as they had been following general exercise classes or training at the gym and not getting results. They were finding there was a lack of specialised advice for pregnant women and after having children their gym program wasn't working for their 'pooched' tummy muscles. They also felt tired or had back pain, shoulder pain or neck ache and lack of time was an issue. The general programs they were following were not tailored to the physical, emotional, hormonal and lifestyle changes that they were experiencing.
So with my knowledge and a ton of research I devised my method; exercises tailored to pregnancy and post pregnancy, recipes with foods that nourish the body to reclaim health and vitality and put together realistic plans that worked for sleep deprived, overwhelmed and busy mothers and mothers to be!
During this time, I experienced pregnancy and birth myself (twice) to add that 'inside' knowledge to my method.
I'm here to share my knowledge and expertise with you too; so you can feel fit and fabulous or super toned, or even both, during motherhood and beyond.
