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, or whether you are pre or post menopause my holistic approach to women's health and fitness 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.

Our Monthly Cycle & Our Hormones

How our hormones affect us during the monthly cycle Have you ever really followed your monthly cycle?? Many women don’t.  They don’t think of it except for maybe knowing they are coming on as they are eating more or getting very irritable or getting very bloated.  However, have you ever actually thought or wondered WHY…

*CHANGES TO BUGGYFIT - PLEASE READ!*

I had moved all the Buggyfit classes outside, but due to limited groups of 5, this has meant that many of you haven't been able to get a slot.

Therefore, I have decided to keep Tuesday (at the Downs) and Wednesday (at Horfield Common) outdoors BUT I have changed Friday's session back to a BUGGYFIT LIVE session so that more people can join the class.

This was a hard decision, but I want as many people to be able to join as possible. Hopefully, this won't be for too much longer as I hope I will be able to increase the outdoor sessions to more than 5 people at a time, I will of course keep you posted.

Thanks for your understanding and I hope those who weren't able to get a space in the outdoor sessions are able to join me on Friday at 11 via zoom.

"You do so much to get us mums on track- you’re a force of nature & nobody should have a baby without a bit of Vicki rehab!"

"I started focusing on my pelvic floor muscles during my daily activities, such as when picking up my toddler etc. I feel more tone around my waist but I know it’s only the beginning and I have to keep practicing. I started eating more proteins and reduced my coffee. Generally I feel better about myself knowing that I am doing something positive and eating well."

Feedback from the Holistic Core Restore Course ®

"I would highly recommend this course to anyone postnatal. I don't think women take postnatal & pelvic floor issues seriously enough and we should have more awareness around repairing our bodies and properly strengthening our pelvic floor and core. This course gave me the tools to learn to do this safely."

Feedback from the Holistic Core Restore Course ®

I can't think of anything as I found it perfect much for what I needed. Homework was easily accessible on my phone which was very important as I don’t have time to put my laptop on with two small children.

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.
