After I had children, I was strapped for time, lacked energy and motivation. I was working full-time in a corporate environment and felt that I didn't do a good job as an employee, nor as a mother or a partner. Exercise had always been an important part of my life, but it went out the window as I had to prioritise getting back from work just before nursery shut for the day. Cue mum guilt! It just didn't feel right and I decided to train as a Personal Trainer focusing on pre/postnatal and peri/post-menopause exercise. I struggled to find a solution for my own postnatal issues, so gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience from helping others has also helped me.
Whilst I continue to enjoy working with new mums, I also focus on exercise in peri/post menopause. Issues related to menopause has been largely ignored by the medical profession, the media and fitness industry. I'm determined to fuel awareness and educate the women I work with to take charge and make healthy lifestyle changes for a better peri/menopause journey. Exercise and resistance training is a big part of that.
I am originally from Norway and have spent over 20 years studying and working in the UK. I live in Herne Hill, London with my husband, our two kids and Cosmo the cat. When I'm not spending time with the family, I enjoy seeing friends, staying active and travelling.
I have a Level 3 PT qualification from Future Fit, plus pre/postnatal and peri-post menopause specialisms from Burrell Education and BirthFit in the US.
