Hi, I'm Vicki Hill

 A Bristol-based Women’s Health & Fitness Trainer specialising in supporting women from pregnancy, postnatal and the later stages of womanhood.

Helping you back to fitness after pregnancy and childbirth

My clients come to me for a variety of reasons. Some are pregnant and want to be confident they’re doing all the right things to support their developing baby. Others want to begin their journey back to postnatal fitness and fabulousness. Some are struggling with weight loss due to hormonal changes, and others have a specific issue such as diastasis recti or a weak pelvic floor.

But they all have one thing in common: they want to be sure they’re doing the right exercises for their body, pushing hard to reach their goals without jeopardising their future fitness.

I’ve always loved and competed in sports. I was a competitive rower and marathon runner. But it wasn’t until I did my training with revolutionary women’s wellness expert Jenny Burrell that I found my true calling.

Working in women's health is my passion. I am dedicated to helping women look after themselves and am never prouder than when I get a ‘thank you’ from someone I have really helped regain pelvic and core health. For me it is not all about weight-loss, there is so much more than that, it is about educating women to look at the whole picture - to feel healthy, strong and happy.

Specialist help for women's health in Bristol

It’s so important to me that I get the right information out to women to make them feel better about themselves. I’m privileged to have a wide network of contacts who I can refer my clients onto for specialist help: Nutritionists Rosie Letts and Anita Beardsley - who specialises in the menopause.  Women’s Health Physios Helen Hodder, Amanda Sullivan, Fiona Morgan.  Womens Health Osteopaths Juliana or Niamh or Musco-skeletal Physio specialist Sarah Bryan.

Let me help you fall back in love with your body

As for me, I’m a qualified personal trainer, licensed Holistic Core Restore® coach and BuggyFit trainer. I offer a wide range of fitness sessions for individuals and groups, helping to make sure you introduce the right exercises at the right time for your body.

I take a holistic approach. This means I focus not only on exercise, but on nourishment, hydration, and the importance of diaphragmatic breathing with pelvic floor health. I’ll teach you the importance of self-care too. All of these things work towards promoting healing. Ultimately I’ll take your individual goals, whatever they may be, and work out a plan to help you achieve them.

It may take some time: I’m not into quick fixes that might cause damage to your body. For me, it’s about doing things the right way, mending and building strength from within.

"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 ®

"Without Vicki's careful planning, constant encouragement and support, I would have given up a long time ago."

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.
