A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Before diving into the wonderful world of fitness, I was a primary school teacher for 11 years. While I loved my career, I have always had a love for everything related to health and fitness. Any free time I had was spent exercising, helping friends and family to exercise, or reading health and fitness articles.
After having my two children, I inevitably found it more challenging to find the time and to prioritise fitness. This reduction in movement lead me to realise how important fitness was in my life. After chatting to other mums at playgroups and parks, I soon learnt that intentional exercise was something many mums struggle to squeeze into their days. I often heard "Oh no, I don't exercise - I'm a mum"!
I had a burning passion to change that thought. Mums deserve to be healthy, fit and strong. I would argue that parenthood is so physically demanding, that it is a time in our lives that we need to be at our strongest (have you lifted a baby car seat?!)!
I decided to follow my passions and retrained as a level 2 Fitness Instructor in 2021.
Mummy Fit Club was born.
Word soon spread about my fun teaching style (using skills from my previous career!) and many people suggested that I also do a fitness class for adults, without little ones. I also soon learnt that many people understood the benefits of fitness, but just didn't know where to start, had had negative experiences in the past or just didn't believe exercise could be enjoyable!
This is how my Feel Good Fit Club was created.

I completed my level 3 qualification in Personal Training a year after starting my classes.
Working one-to-one with people, getting to know their goals and helping them achieve them is amazing.
My approach is to educate individuals about exercise and nutrition, how they work together, and empower them to change their relationship with their body and food for good.
No more fad diets. No more yo-yo-ing scales. It's time to celebrate bodies and understand how to make lasting, positive changes.
