Time, energy and childcare are big constraints for any mum to be or busy mum looking to get stronger, fitter, leaner and healthier. This is the reason we encourage mums to bring along their baby to postnatal classes during those ever so special early days.
With so much conflicting information available it can be extremely overwhelming to a new mum. My aim is to provide helpful Information and motivation using my experience as a mum and an experienced postnatal trainer.
Class goals are regaining self confidence, feel stronger, leaner, regain core and pelvic floor strength through safe functional exercises (NO SIT UPS HERE) to feel comfortable in your own skin and be happy with your body(after all it has done an amazing thing by creating another human being).

What my lovely clients are saying
Natalie Sadler- Mum & City banker
I have trained with Michelle for more than 6 years and I can honestly say she is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. Michelle offers a blend of expert nutritional advice (but in a realistic and balanced way) along with first rate strength and fitness training that really delivers results. Michelle will work you hard but in a way that will make you want to work. Not only does she deliver great instruction and results but she lives her advice and having two small children understands the challenges of juggling work, family and exercise! I have a lot of fun but also know I’ve worked really hard! Highly recommend Michelle!!
Nina Foote- New mum
I have been coming to Michelle’s Strong Mamas classes for several months during my maternity leave – both when they were live at the Carpenter’s Arms and now online through Zoom. I always enjoy the sessions – great bunch of other mums and really nice sense of community, plus I always ached at the end so knew it was working! My fitness and strength has improved and Michelle is great at focusing on individual technique, which has been really helpful, even in there online classes. I would recommend the Strong Mamas classes!
Becky Tuff -Mum & City worker
I started going to Michelle’s classes since my baby was 6 weeks old and he is now 6 months. I have lost all my baby weight and can attribute that to Michelle’s classes and advice.
Her classes are really enjoyable as she adapts the class to your level and how far post natal you are. She makes sure that you start back to exercise in a safe way and have the right technique as well as making it more challenging when you are ready.
She also does both indoor and outdoor classes. If the weather is awful then she brings all classes indoors so no need to worry about the baby being out in the rain!
Everyone who attends her classes are really friendly and she promotes that by making sure she introduces everyone at the beginning of a class. You can get some great tips from the other mums (not necessarily exercise related!).
The best part is that you can bring your baby with you and it’s no trouble if you need to stop to sooth or feed your baby.
Classes include short circuit style intervals concentrating on problematic areas such as
- Bad posture
- Weak glutes and core
- Tight hip flexors and lower back
- Stubborn fat and cellulite
We use a variety of kit in this class with toys to keep the little one entertained while you concentrate on your workout.
