Who Are We?
Connect is an online fitness and wellness coaching business for women; who are frustrated with where their body is at, postnatally / post menopause.
1 in 3 Women have some form of pelvic floor dysfunction, such as incontinence, prolapse or a prolonged diastasis recti.
Regular personal trainers & gyms often don't know how to train women with these conditions. This can mean that you are treated the same as every other client, leading to a possible worsening of symptoms. It can also leave women feeling lost, broken or even fearful of exercise, or movement in general.
Our coaching programmes are designed to work specifically with you in mind. To help you to move well and live your best life again, no matter what stage of life you're in.
Hi I'm Amy!
Personal Trainer, Holistic Core Restore® Coach, Nutrition Coach & Mama.
I became a personal trainer because I was fed up of hearing that I had no control over my body as it aged.
Everywhere I turned, I was met with "just you wait until you have kids / hit 30 / hit menopause "etc.
I believe that women's bodies are magical. From puberty to post menopause, our body is forever evolving, and it can be easy to feel disconnected and out of control.
My goal is to help women to reconnect to and embrace their body. Scars and all. We may not be able to go back to how we were, but we absolutely can move forward.
My passion is centred around 4 main areas
Pregnancy, the 4th Trimester and Postnatal Recovery.
Pelvic Floor & Core Restore. (Holistic Core Restore®)
The above issues can be a huge barrier for fitness or living a full life in general. Throughout my coaching, I am focused on what living a full life means to you, and how I can get you there.
