As a mummy of 2 cheeky monsters, years of teaching experience and a wide range of qualifications you can be sure you are in safe hands.
Personal training sessions take place either from your home or local park.
Mummy Boxercise and Strength + Conditioning classes run twice a week at the Salvation Army on Victoria Street in St Albans.
How I can help
My name is Sarah, I am 31, a mummy to 2 little people and a women's health and fitness specialist. I have always had a keen interest in sports and fitness. Since having my eldest child I have chosen to dedicate my time to helping all women get into their best possible shape and helping expectant and new mummies restore their core and pelvic floor.
I aspire to make women want to be fit and healthy, believe in themselves and to grow self-confidence.
Not everyone enjoys exercising but we know we have to. That's why my exercises are super fun and enjoyable whilst getting amazing, long lasting results. And they will start to change your mindset about fitness. I may chat your head off but I'm not the drill sergeant type.
I love learning new things, going on training days and adding to my qualifications, to further my knowledge to help with my clients progress. I just love my job, teaching exercise and watching my clients succeed, and their love for health and fitness grow too, what could be more rewarding.
My 4 Golden Rules to
Successful Weight Loss
1. BE REALISTIC
The time it takes to lose weight depends on so many factors—how much you weigh to begin with, how old you are, your gender, your lifestyle. Then, you have to take plateaus into account. Some people hit plateaus.
It just really depends on your body. Generally, how quickly you lose weight depends on how much you have to lose—weight comes off faster when you’re heavier, and typically slows down as you lose weight. (Part of that is because we lose water weight quickly upfront.) Losing anywhere from 0.5 to 2 pounds a week can be healthy—any fewer or more, and you may need to reassess your methods. It’s important to remember that it’s OK if it takes longer for the weight to come off if that means it’ll stay off. If you lose 15 pounds in 4 weeks because you did something drastic, you’ll likely put it back on when you go back to your old habits. In the end, healthy eating and exercise is really what works. We’re all looking for magic pill, but if that worked everyone would be thin, no one would have weight problems. It’s not that easy. If it’s too easy and the weight’s flying off, you’re probably doing something that’s not maintainable.
2. MIND OVER MATTER
Put the biscuit down, don’t put the sugar in your tea, go for the run tonight, push to the end, keep going when you’re ready to throw in the towel.
Once you change your mind set and stop giving in then you will always succeed.
Your whole body loves routine. Eating, drinking and sleeping routinely is key to managing your metabolism. Creating a routine for your fitness that fits in with your life is also key. If you just randomly decide to go for a run that’s great but when are you going to do it again?
Set aside 3 realistic times of the week that you can stick to consistently.
If you can’t stick to your plan long term it won’t last! Weight loss can take a year to reach your end goal and sometimes even longer than this, so make every day count and don’t give in.
