The groundwork of all happiness is health.

Hi I’m Ellie, a specialist in women’s health and fitness on a mission to transform lifestyles, bodies, families and mindsets. I want more women to take control of their health and realise they can have it all. Mind, body and soul.


My training background is as diverse as my beautiful clients: martial arts, circus, dance, weight training, pilates and yoga. I've been lucky enough to train around the world, and just about tried it all. From pilates in New York, to gymnastics in Sweden (and a subsequent emergency room visit). 

Through years of work as a personal trainer, pilates instructor and paramedic, I have had a close up look into what goes on behind closed doors. I have experienced peoples highest and darkest moments right there with them.

I've seen the anxiety and post-natal depression, the weight issues, the dysfunctional relationships with food, the medications, the family dynamics and of course...the babies! Yep, I've delivered a few who just couldn't wait to get to hospital.

There aren't many angles I haven't seen when it comes to mums ;)

Aside from all of that I'm also a mum myself. So I have experienced the ups, downs, frustrations, overwhelming fear and excitement and love. I know what it feels like to feel totally lost and to wonder "who the hell am I anymore?" and think "I don't recognise this body anymore". Feeling disconnected and unsure of how to find new friendships, yeah I know that feeling. I also know how I overcame it.

Years of self-neglect and overload caused me to burnout. I was forced to take a giant step back and a leap of faith. That darkness became the brightest light I could ever have imagined, and I am so grateful to be able to share it now with the world. The power of goal setting, mindset coaching and community play such a powerful role in achieving those scary big dreams.

If this is resonating with you, I've got your back. You are not alone.

My crew of women love to live healthy, active lives and connect in a completely supportive, fun way. If you want in, make sure you join the free facebook group now.
