Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit re|Born. Let me introduce myself. My name is Rachel, I am a wife and mum living in South West London. I am an ex-retail and eCommerce specialist turned women’s fitness coach. With a specialism in pre & post natal fitness and ‘corrective exercise’, I love to focus on mindful movement, while also bridging the gap between pelvic health physical therapy and training.
I always enjoyed fitness but worried about the effects of exercise while trying for 7 months for a baby and then suffering a miscarriage. I also found my first pregnancy very difficult, struggling with changes to my body and the aches and pains that came with it. I googled like crazy and soon realised there was a need for more education and dedicated training support for women trying to conceive, throughout pregnancy and motherhood. In particular, around how to exercise safely while also challenging the ‘norms’, and expectations of, what women can and can’t do during these stages. It’s time to remove the fear-mongering!

Having a consulting background and a maths degree, I’ve always wanted to know WHY I should be training in a certain way and how it would impact my body. During my second pregnancy I managed to combat all pains experienced and continued with my love of CrossFit which was extremely empowering. I am here to make you feel the same, investing in you and your progress, and giving you the confidence to continue with and return to the activities you love.
My second daughter was born in Feb 2021 and although I am on maternity leave, I have some big plans for Post Natal programmes.
"Would recommend highly! Was looking for someone to guide me with exercising during pregnancy and felt in very safe hands with Rachel. I started early in pregnancy to maintain fitness but have also gained a lot more in terms of improving posture, coordination and core strength. Rachel is very knowledgeable and friendly!"
