About Christine

 

So, Who am I? 

I am mum to Erin & Mia and as such believe very strongly in promoting a positive body image to my girls, and to those who attend my classes. Having volunteered with beat and having recently been appointed a Be Real Campaign Ambassador, I believe in helping people to use their bodies to feel stronger AND more confident.

I believe, you can improve your relationship to your body and how you move.

Above all,  I am passionate about creating a safe space for all women where they can come as they are, feel comfortable and where they are free to be themselves.

I am currently studying for an MSC from Kings College London in the ‘Psychology and Neuroscience of Mental Health’ and vehemently believe in exercise for brain health as well as our physical and emotional well being.

 

Can you use exercise as a celebration of what your body can do rather than a punishment for what you ate?

 

I feel that many of the messages in the fitness industry are solely focussed on the aesthetic rather than moving your body for joy and to feel good in your own skin. So many people have a distorted image of themselves and their bodies and feel trapped in a never-ending cycle of losing weight, calorie counting and exercising to burn off the food they ‘SHOULDN’T’ have eaten! I want to change the conversation around self-worth, food and exercise.

Can you use exercise as a celebration of what your body can do rather than a punishment for what you ate?

Can we go to fitness classes that we enjoy without feeling pressure to look a certain way or push ourselves beyond our limits?
