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.

Are you an ‘All or Nothing’ person?

I often say to my clients, ‘a little is better than nothing‘.  However, some people just feel they have to go to the gym or exercise for a whole hour or 1 1/2 hrs to make it worthwhile.  Is that you?? WHY?? I think this used to be instilled into us – we had to…

Have you ever heard of "the fear of movement" post hysterectomy? This video from Jenny Burrell explains when a lady went to see her with just this - scared to do much as she just didn't know what she should or shouldn't do. I have to say, when I had a hysterectomy I looked and there was so little information out there. So have a listen to Jenny's video.

It is a great informative video where Jenny not only talks about a hysterectomy and exercise, but also about the importance of exercising if you are peri, during and post menopause. She explains how exercise is 'really important for offsetting the negative symptoms of menopause'.

I will be starting a new 'Menopause Fitness Course' in February which I believe is totally new to Bristol, new to many women & not just an exercise class. I am creating a course for women who are peri-menopausal, going through the menopause or post menopause. It will be an education, as well as a fitness class, as well as a well-being class – all in one.
Watch this space for more details, if you would like to be put on the waiting list please pop over an email to pt@vickihill.co.uk

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.
