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…

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!

Why do so many women leak and put a pad in and think that is ok?? This really is not how you should be living your life.

Marketing and ads about wearing a Tena Lady may look great, but in the long run it is still NOT helping you with the problem.
My next Everywoman course will teach you HOW to properly engage and educate you on all the areas around the pelvic floor. So do something about it ladies, do you really want to wear pads all your life??
Look at my Holistic Core Restore course - next one is evening only - a real time for you to focus on you! www.vickihill.co.uk/…/holistic-core-restore-everyw…/For years women have been led down the path that kept them silent and shamed about inco issues..........NOW, these b*stards (and no, that's not too strong a word) are wanting us to NORMALIZE THE WEARING OF PADS to keep them in clover. Wearing and relying on pad for an issue, that in many cases can be reversed in a matter of weeks via education and a fit-for-purpose Pelvic Floor, core training programme - just like ours. When I was left leaking after a pelvic surgery, I rebelled. That's why this programme exists....AT 40 I SAID NO TO THE PADS AND AM LIVING PROOF THAT THERE IS ANOTHER WAY! And so are the 1000's of women we've served since 2013. So, I call on every woman being targeted in this mercenary, opportunistic fashion to REBEL....THERE IS HELP, CHANGE IS POSSIBLE AND THE PADS ARE NOT THE 'SOLUTION'. So I propose that wherever you see those ads in your social media, we let the manufacturers know that WE KNOW WHAT THEY'RE UP TO AND WE'RE NOT PLEASED! Our protest hashtags are: #efftena and #tenarebellion! Who's with us?? Thanks to Coaches Denise and Jayne for the artwork and inspo!

Water - not just to take away thirst - mailchi.mp/fcb9df732413/water-not-just-to-take-away-thirst Following on from last week's post about hydration, this week I look deeper into the benefits of water for our bodies. Have a read ... ... See MoreSee Less

Hydration, particularly in this hot weather, is so important.
When you are out and about with your families don't forget your reusable water bottles to keep everyone hydrated.

When you are exercising ensure you begin exercise well-hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids the day before and within the hour before, during and after your exercise session. Keeping hydrated by drinking water & herbal teas also helps the muscles and mend tissue.

Vicki will be sharing more on hydrated soon so keep you eyes peeled. 👀

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.
