My name is Sheridan, owner of My Fit Mumma. I believe that the pressure mum’s feel to “lose the baby weight” is a direct result of the harsh expectations society places on women to look a certain way. This only adds to the already immense “motherload” we take on when we start raising children. The importance of “ME” time cannot be underestimated and with that comes taking care of yourself both mentally and physically.
It is important to understand that the postnatal period is forever and a safe return to exercise does extend far beyond the 6-week post natal check. In fact, this is just a starting point and not a “green light” to simply return to life, including exercise, as per “normal"
I help teach women about the important, yet often overlooked steps to build a strong foundation from the inside out. In taking the time to do this, Mums of any age and stage can exercise, enjoy the sports and activities they love or just move freely to meet the demands of every day life with confidence. Without pain, fear of injury or incontinence. I believe working closely with a Women's Health Physiotherapist is a key component in achieving this.
I am currently taking some time away from offering face to face services while I undertake further study and professional development so that I can better support my clients from a Health at Every Size® perspective. As a passionate anti-diet culture advocate, a weight neutral, non-diet approach is of upmost importance to me and I want to ensure that any services I offer moving forward fully encompass these principles. Thank you for your patience and to be one of the first to find out what happens next at My Fit Mumma you can join my mailing list here.
I am a mum to my 8 year old daughter plus a fluffy fur child labradoodle. Prior to joining the fitness industry I had a career as a high school Health and PE teacher spanning over 10 years.
In 2015, almost 3 years into motherhood, I launched my first business The HIIT Fix and as my all female client base grew so to did my desire to expand my knowledge about exercising safely during pregnancy and beyond. After becoming a Safe Return to Exercise accredited trainer and joining the Body Beyond Baby Affiliate Team in 2018, my new baby My Fit Mumma was born.
