Whatever your health and fitness goals, I’m here to help and keep you motivated. In your initial consultation we will assess your fitness and discuss your likes, dislikes, goals and exercise history so that I can design a progressive training programme to meet your specific needs.


I strongly believe enjoyment is the key to staying motivated and reaching your goals. With this in mind,  I will take your personal interests and preferences into account when designing your programme; if you prefer swimming to running, for example, we can build this into your sessions. However, that doesn’t mean I won’t make you work hard! I will always challenge you and encourage you to step outside your comfort zone in order to achieve the best possible results for you.






After you’ve had a baby, your body will feel very different for a while. You may feel weak and unfit; you may be lacking body confidence; you may just feel like your hormones need rebalancing. Getting back to exercise as soon as possible can help overcome these problems, but it is important to stay safe and not to overdo it too quickly, which is why I offer post-natal personal training sessions and post-natal fitness classes. With my guidance you can exercise in a safe and friendly environment with expert advice to ensure you strengthen the correct muscles in the right way.


Some of the benefits of post-natal exercise are:


    •  Fat burning;

    •  Improving all over muscle tone;

    •  Improving cardiovascular fitness;

    •  Strengthening, toning and flattening stomach muscles;

    •  Strengthening core and postural muscles to keep your back and shoulders strong. This will reduce the risk of back

       and injury from carrying your baby;

    •  Improving body confidence;

    •  Releasing endorphins (happy hormones) into your system;

    •  Conditioning your pelvic floor to reduce the risk of incontinence.
