What makes your class so f’cking awesome?
My classes are challenging but accessible, I give plenty of options and tailor them as much as I can to my participants’ needs and goals. I’m all about empowering my participants to work hard with self awareness and mind-body connection, especially my Mumhooders. You’ll come out sweating, smiling, stronger and ready to face whatever the day throws at you.
What was your journey to becoming an instructor? How the hell did you get here?
’m a banking lawyer who got fed up of sitting at a desk in excess of 12 hours a day. I got hooked on moving my body through running, yoga and group exercise, losing myself in music and movement. I wanted to share my love of fitness with others so trained as a fitness instructor. After having my first baby I became passionate about training and educating women on the benefits of (safe) exercise during pregnancy and beyond which is how I started working with Mumhood.
What is your signature move?
Glutes! Squats, lunges, glute bridges, anything that works that butt. Stronger glutes means better running, jumping, lifting, balancing and for my Mumhooders can be hugely beneficial for pregnancy, labour and beyond.
What makes you, you?
I HATED cross country and long distance running at school and now run ultra marathons for fun! It just goes to show that we can do anything we set our minds to, especially when we are doing it for ourselves and no one else.
What does your downtime look like?
Getting outdoors and exploring new places both far flung and closer to home, usually by running as far as possible. I also love breakfast any time of the day (preferably with something fizzy)!
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
Comparison is the thief of joy. In other words, don’t worry about what anyone else is doing, focus on what makes YOU feel good about YOU.
If you weren’t an Instructor, what would you be?
A lawyer, which I still am but I’d probably be sitting at my desk a lot more! Otherwise an actress which was my dream job as a child.
