Vicky is the proud owner of Shape Up Mum’s. For the past 5 years she has been a passionate, enthusiastic instructor for SUM, helping hundreds of women develop strong pelvic floor and core control post birth, and jumped at the chance to take over ownership of the business in 2017.
Vicky has always been passionate about health and fitness, but it was her desire to move away from her IT career led to her to retrain as a personal trainer. Returning to exercise after having her own children, the SUM’s philosophy appealed to Vicky as she could attend sessions which were not only safe after child birth, but could assist in recovery after birth, such as helping abdominal separation and also allowed her to bring her children along to the session.
Growing up in chilly England, Vicky loves exercising outdoors with the Shape Up Mums group exercise sessions. She also keeps fit through regular resistance training at the gym, swimming, and running and has been a Yoga devotee for 20 years.
Vicky has 2 beautiful children, Levi (8 yrs) and Mya (6 yrs) and understands firsthand the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to keep up with energetic kids.
Vicky is committed to professional development and regularly updates her knowledge and skills. She has recently completed her Matwork Pilates Instructor course and learnt even more the importance of developing and maintaining a strong pelvic floor and core. She aims to end most sessions with some of this Pilates knowledge.
