We are two busy Mums who have worked in fitness for over 20 years. We started our Fit Mummy classes almost 10 years ago to help women stay strong and healthy during pregnancy, followed by our popular Mummy Rebuild core rehab courses for once the baby arrived. 

We soon realised that more women needed our help and not just postnatally.  There is a real lack of core rehab options available to help women with prolapse diagnosis, pelvic floor weakness, post abdominal surgery - like hysterectomy - and especially the transition through menopause when symptoms that have not been that bad start to get worse.

Our main focus for core and pelvic floor rehab is to use hypopressives, then to add Pilates and stretches to get the core to function properly again.  

We will support you, motivate you and we have lots of ways to help you keep on track with your rehab but at the end of the day you will need to make a commitment to yourself and your pelvic health to spend some time fixing it.  

However, this doesn't have to take more than 10 minutes a day. Above all, consistency is key to improving these issues.  If you are ready to make that next step and Revive your core and pelvic floor then let's do this.  We have different training options to offer. We understand life is busy and not one option suits. 

 So, if you are ready to get started,  just let us know and we will send you over more information. 

 Exciting times
