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…Read More
2018 all wrapped up! 2018 really was a year I felt I made a difference to Bristol ladies who came to me for my Holistic Core Restore(R) Everywoman courses or my 1:1 personal training. For me my work is about creating body awareness and educating women to understand why what we eat, how we…Read More
Many women don’t know what exercise they can do during pregnancy, many may be a bit scared to do too much, many haven’t a clue what they can or cant do with all the mixed messages and many actually get bad pelvic girdle pain and can’t do too much. So which category are you in??…Read More
Many women don’t think about the menopause when in their 30’s or early 40’s as they tend to think it is years away! However, what women don’t realise is that we can start having peri-menopausal symptoms in our 30’s & 40’s and not realise our hormones are beginning to change. The average age for a…Read More
There has been so much lately in the press about Serena Williams or Adele and how they opened up about their traumatic births or post natal depression that I felt it was an area to be talked about. It is a big step for anyone to admit to having post-natal or peri-natal depression or psychosis…Read More
The reason this is my blog this week is because at Buggyfit last week I had a lovely new lady who said she has been to the other Buggyfit class in South Bristol!! Alarm bells as there are no other official Buggyfit trainers in South Bristol and the one lady I know of is certainly…Read More
Sitting too long at a desk or slumped on the sofa, breastfeeding, bottle feeding, pregnant bodies or standing holding something heavy for too long – they ALL affect your posture. How we sit and stand is so important to take pressure off the back and shoulders, so try some of these release exercises to help…Read More
After many years of only doing 1:1 PT with pregnant clients I have decided to start back at offering pregnancy classes. I haven’t done group sessions for a long time but due to the increased demand for pregnancy exercise and the lack of anything other than pregnancy yoga & pilates I have created a class…Read More
When we think of protein we think of it coming from mainly meat – yes that is true but there are also a lot of different healthy sources of protein which are a great alternative. Whether you are a vegetarian, vegan or a meat eater you can all benefit from some of these alternative sources…Read More
So anyone who works for themselves like me knows that suddenly we are hearing all about the new GDPR rules which kick at the end of May. I managed to ignore it all for quite a while, not really taking any notice of it and pretending to sort something by May!! However, suddenly all the other Buggyfit trainers and Holistic Core Restore(R) coaches are talking about it and what we all need to know and I’m suddenly EEEKKK!!
Urghhhh, it has been an effort for me to get my head around it all – I JUST WANT TO BE A TRAINER and run my business! I AM NOT going to share anyone’s confidential information – Why would I do that!!! However, no matter how small my business is I can’t make excuses and need to get everyone to reply to an email to say they want to be on my database. Thank goodness for good old Mailchimp – it has been easier than I initially thought, though I have now got to spend the next month going through my database taking people off who have said they don’t want to hear from me!!!!
My moaning about doing it has stopped as I am now looking at the positive side of it all. It has been so lovely to hear from ladies I trained 10 yrs ago in my early days – thank you if you are one of them and STILL happy to get my chitter chatter blogs and news letters. It has been so lovely to hear from you all and some who are pregnant again or coming to Buggyfit classes again. I will often remember a name or see someone out on the Gloucester Rd and though I apologise I can’t always put name to face, it is always lovely to see you and to see your grown up kids whom I last saw in a buggy!!
My Spring clean has started and it feels good to be communicating with those who actually want to hear from me and stay in touch – I’ll try and carry on with sharing my foody, pelvic floor, diastasis, weak tummy & why we don’t crunch tips!! Next news letter will be at the end of the month! (oh and please do reply send me a message via my website if you didnt get the email to say if you want to be on my database.
Thanks xRead More
