I spent my youth playing lots of competitive sport (mainly basketball and netball) and consequently have several injuries that have continued to today. I am married and have 5 children, the youngest was born when I was 44. My career has been varied but always revolving around the health industry.
It was my trainer who suggested to me that I’d be a good PT, to which I laughed and said I was too old, but the seed had been planted. I became a Personal and Group Fitness Trainer at 50, call it a mid life crisis, but it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.
After graduating I realised I didn’t want to run large group classes with a one size fits all routine. I was also surprised that there was little consideration in a session for individuals with injuries / restrictions / pelvic floor issues.
In 2015 Practically Fit was born and whilst doing some research I found the Women’s Health and Fitness Summit - it opened my eyes to the array of pelvic floor issues, not only physical but emotional as well.
I want to help you feel healthy, confident and comfortable with who you are. I want to take the time to get to know you so that I can provide training appropriate for your needs, whilst taking into account any restrictions or injuries. Most of all I want to provide a safe, social and supportive environment to help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
I continue to study and learn about how to train women safely, how to modify traditional exercises and make them Pelvic Floor friendly.
