I'm Beth, owner of Embody Training
My love affair with exercise started in my late teens. Exercise helped me to find the balance when studying for my finals and after starting work provided a cost effective way of commuting to the city and downtime after a stressful day. As I worked up the corporate ladder, I kept up the exercise but pitches, stress and late nights in the office meant that I was constantly tired, propping up my energy levels with coffee and quick energy fixes. By qualifying as a personal trainer, immersing myself in understanding more about nutrition and applying all these principles to my own life, I have seen changes in energy levels, better quality sleep and the ability to cope with whatever life throws at me.
I have a unique blend of qualifications and experience, spanning fitness and nutrition as well as women's health, Pilates and those with medical issues. This means I can create incredibly bespoke programmes for my clients which go beyond just exercise and eating well.
In September 2014 I gave birth to a little girl and I truly believe that eating well and training during my pregnancy helped me accept my changing body, contributed to a very short labour and helped me recover quickly. In 2017, I had a little boy via planned C-section and created my own recovery plan which included core and pelvic floor strengthening work, scar massage and good nutrition.
However, I meet many women who are not having/have not had straightforward pregnancies and births and it's these women who fuel my passion to improve their pregnancy or post natal experience. I've worked with many clients who are experiencing pelvic girdle pain, diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, incontinence and prolapse and have a deep understanding of these conditions and how to help them.
I believe in helping women return to the exercise they love doing after baby and am a qualified Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism coach as well as working with local women's running group, Run Like a Girl, to help mum's have a safe return to running
