Hello September!

Here’s a few updates and a quick run-down of what lie ahead for September 2023


My work has been largely female-focused for a while now but I recently decided to make it official!


It doesn’t mean I will never work with men, but my primary goal is to help women move more and feel better, so that is where I will be putting all my attention going forward. From sports & pregnancy massage, to safe & effective online fitness and one-to-one training, everything will be geared towards the specific needs of the female body.

I’m really excited to have this fresh focus as we head into the tail-end of 2023 and beyond…

Professional development:

Recently someone asked me if I like what I do and I have to admit that I gave a pretty non-committal answer because in that moment I was feeling a bit low. But I went away that weekend and kept thinking about the question, and realised that YES I absolutely do like what I do, but I have sometimes felt frustrated by it because I haven’t always structured my work it in a way that allows me time for growth.

And then I had a lightbulb moment!

I realised I needed to get out of my own way…so from now on, Wednesdays* will be my day for professional (and personal) development, where I can study, enjoy my own fitness and create space for my business to evolve.

I have several courses already purchased (some of which I have not even started!) so I am excited to be resuming one of those next week, focusing on fitness for menopausal women.

Watch this space!

(* I’ll still be teaching Pilates on Wednesday evenings at 7pm – it isn’t going anywhere!)

What’s on in August:

You can find all the class descriptions and booking details here

Find details about how Pilates is the perfect class to complement your other activities, and see booking information here

The new term of in-person Pilates classes starts on Friday 8th September, bookable as a block (up to 8th September) or on a week-by-week basis.

Further details about how massage can help to support your body, can be found here

Personal training:

To round off the updates for September, a reminder that I also work with women on a one-to-one basis, offering bespoke fitness programs to help you achieve a specific goal or focus on your individual needs. You can find out more here

Here’s to a brand new month, and a smooth transition into autumn!

July 2023

(what’s on ?)

I’m finally set to take a break from work from the middle of the month! In spite of the unexpectedly fast delivery of my passport I am not heading anywhere too far away, but I’m looking forward to a week of walking in the Peak District followed by a week of something else (to be decided!)

However, it’s not holiday-time yet so here’s what is going on with tmf this month.

Online fitness for women

All classes are running as usual up to and including Friday 14th July:

ALL the online fitness classes are self-paced – meaning that you can push yourself as hard or as little as you like – and I always offer variations so that you can get the best workout for your body.

  • 40-fit Mondays @ 7pm – it’s always good to get a Monday workout in your week
  • metabolic fitness Tuesdays @ 7am – a really good start to your day!
  • functional fitness Wednesdays @ 7am – a perfect way to start the weekend…

All sessions via zoom. Find further details here

While I’m away, subscription members will have access to three new pre-recorded classes in the membership area. I will vary the formats a bit so you have something new to enjoy while I’m away. These pre-recorded classes will take the place of your week 3 sessions and week 4 will happen at the start of August once I get back from my break…


  • Online class Wednesdays @ 7pm – this session will run on 5th & 12th July and then have a two week break, resuming Wednesday 2nd August. Details here

    Subscription members will be able to access previous recordings in the membership area as usual while I’m away, and will also have access to the three pre-recorded fitness classes too.

In-person classes will be back on Friday 4th September. We meet in the very beautiful Kilndown village hall at 9.30am (term-times only). Booking is now open – details here. If you usually attend these sessions and find yourself missing them over the summer, why not join us on Wednesday evening on zoom instead?

Sports & clinical massage

I offer treatment for soft tissue injury or overuse issues, general niggles & chronic conditions such as low back pain, neck & shoulder tension, knee & hip pain.

I am also certified to offer pregnancy and post-natal massage, work with post-operative scar tissue and provide oncology massage.

I have a massage treatment room at my home in Cranbrook. Massage appointments in July are available on the following dates & times:

  • Tuesdays 4th & 11th July 3pm-9.30pm
  • Wednesdays 5th & 12th July 12.30pm-4pm
  • Thursdays 6th-13th July 1.15pm-8pm

Appointments can be booked here but please email me to discuss your treatment before booking if you have any questions about how I may be able to support you.
