PERSONAL TRAINING IN BRISTOL FOR PREGNANCY, POST NATAL AND MENOPAUSAL

I’m Vicki Hill, a qualified personal trainer, a licensed Holistic Core Restore® coach and Buggy Fit trainer.

I work with women from pregnancy through to the menopause!  My main emphasis is on educating and helping you, especially if you have a diastasis, a dysfunctional pelvic floor or are wanting to get fit again post birth or even after a hysterectomy.

I offer 1:1 personal training and body assessments as well as a different range of classes and an online programme you can do at home.

No matter what your physical condition before pregnancy, or how long you’ve left it since, my holistic approach to pre and postnatal personal training will get the results you’re after.

Whatever stage you're at, I can help

Pregnancy

I offer 1:1 sessions and fitness classes. Every pregnancy is different so we can take it at your pace, doing whole body exercises and being aware of any pelvic girdle pain (SPD) or sacroiliac pain.

New Mums

Give your body time to heal in the 1st 6 weeks post birth.  I start offering classes or 1:1 personal training from 6 weeks post birth or 10 weeks post C section. I offer the Holistic Core Restore ® Everywoman course as a 1:1 or a Diastasis programme.

Beyond babies

Exercising safely, while focusing on the core and pelvic muscles is key to learning to love your body again. I offer body posture assessments, the Holistic Core Restore ® Everywoman and Diastasis programmes.

Menopause

Whether you are Peri-menopausal or going through the menopause, you might find that exercises you were doing have stopped working to keep the weight off. I  offer advice on changing your activity and improving your nutrition to help you reach your goals in the healthiest possible way. I also offer the Holistic Core Restore ® Everywoman  course as a 1:1.

WHY I LOVE MY JOB!

These past few weeks I have met some lovely ladies who have come to me for a 1:1 assessment.  Each lady has a totally different birth story and a totally different body for me to assess and see what and how I can help her. My work these days is so much more than it…

Do you have scars? CSection scars? Hysterectomy scar? Appendix scars - even from keyhole surgery. Had any op on your tummy area?? They can all have an effect on your tummy starting from deep down adhesions Have a read below ..... get in touch if you want guidance with what to do💗 C-section scar massage therapy 💗
How long do you think has passed between the top and bottom picture? Days? Weeks? Months......or 60 minutes?!
These photos were taken yesterday at the start of a c-section massage therapy treatment and again just over an hour later!
Helens scar is 9 years old, she came to me hoping that I could make some changes to her tummy because regardless of exercise or nutrition she always had a bit of an ‘overhang’ (her words not mine!!) which is incredibly common for post c-section ladies. I couldn’t promise her it would go away but I knew that there certainly a lot of ‘stuck’ tissue and if I could release it then it would move a bit more freely.
We did some work through her ribs, into her obliques and then spent quite a bit of time massaging her scar and the area around her scar. As I was working in her tummy I could feel it relax and release and you can certainly see from the pictures we’ve made a huge change in a really short amount of time. Helen now has some homework to do in the form of self massage and some stretching work which I know she’ll do religiously!! #csectionscarmassage #csection #caesariansection #postnatal #postpartum #scartherapy #scarmassage #csectionscar #csectionpouch #csectionmum #massagetherapy #massagetherapist #scartherapist #mummytummy #mummypouch #massage #bedford #bedfordshire @burrell_education

With relief I read this article in today’s Times. Olympian Jess Ennis Hill talks about how her physio wouldn’t let her - an Olympian - do any high impact exercise for a good 6 months!!

I hope Everyone who has had a baby & thinks they are ready to run at 10 wks post birth reads this.

It emphasises the need to build up slowly - I know I try & get that info out to you all but maybe if women read this article from a top athlete they may think twice! Please share!

Educational Talks

As one of the Bump to Cradle experts, I regularly deliver talks to mums-to-be on a range of subjects including the importance of looking after yourself in the fourth trimester (ie. post childbirth), nutritional needs for breast feeding and recovery, and how to start reintroducing exercise. I also work with the Clifton and Hotwells maternity services and am a part of their New Mum talks.
