Let me tell you a little bit about me.
I got into the fitness industry at 32 because I was working at a desk job, feeling lethargic and a little bit podgy.
All my life, I've heard the story that our body isn't our own. That when we hit X age, our body craps out and there is nothing we can do about it.
That didn't sit right with me, so I went out and joined a bootcamp with the goal of running my first 5k.
As an unfit asthmatic with dodgy knees this was a huge deal, but I knew what sitting on my backside was doing so I thought I'd challenge myself.
I'd Cracked The Code!
All I needed to do was eat well and exercise more. Of course!
It was so easy!
I thought this bootcamp was a good thing so I started my own, with the aim to teach people the way to health & fitness. I mean, if I can do it, anyone can... right?
Well, as my client base grew, I learned another normal thing that just "happens"
Most of my clients were women.
Most of those women had had kids.
A few of those women, would joke about having a weak bladder, incontinence pads, and running to the toilet before skipping.
"Just you wait until you've had kids, then you'll understand" was what I was told.
Like this was just another normal part of life where our body lets us down.
Again that didn't sit well with me, so I set myself another challenge of learning what I could to help.
Holistic Core Restore ®
In 2018 I became a licensed Holistic Core Restore ® Coach.
Through my own health journey and through listening to my clients, I realised that our health goes so much deeper than 1 particular problem.
Our whole body is connected and it's through Holistic Core Restore ®, that I can help women truly connect to their body. Not only by building a stronger pelvic floor and core, but addressing how the body works together as a whole.
You'll see that, when you look through my coaching courses, there is a Holistic Core Restore ® program for every part of a woman's life.
