Rumi says, “The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep.”
Over two decades of learning and teaching has led me to design, A FAT LOT OF GOOD with Georgina Land. A “total package lifestyle” around womens health with soul and spirit.
“The concept of Womens wellbeing is a driving force in my life, I don’t want to live another second asleep. In this space these are the practices I’ve designed to help women awaken to their moment, and have the tools to step into their wholeness.”
As founder and creative director of A Fat Lot Of Good Girls I remain driven by self care and fitness into my midlife of forty plus as much as I was in my youth. I divide my time between motherhood in the english seaside city of Brighton and Hove and promoting self care as the foundation of wellbeing and health. Thriving in nourishing environments of holistic health, balance, reflection and positivity. I am a mother of three, a voracious reader, obsessive self care writer and passionate fitness trainer and established sports lecturer. I am also a devoted mum where my family time centres upon the nourishment of a calm and an active life; regularly practicing yoga, outdoor pursuits and self care practice.
I have been practising fitness for over 20 years and teaching for over ten as a certified personal trainer, training with YMCA Fit, Premier Training, The Open University and within many quality educational environments. I work extensively in Sussex on a one-to-one basis as a Wellbeing and fitness therapist and coach, tailoring bespoke practices for women and those facing health issues. I have attended a BSc Sports and Fitness Coach Bachelor programme enabling me to enhance my connection and practice for a health centric life balance in women’s healthcare. I have continued this with some veracity into 2017 as a Fitness master coach Tutor/Assessor with a leading UK education provider alongside being a competitive masters figure athlete. Into 2018 I will be a Kundalini Yoga practitioner enhancing a mind body centric practice.
I have been building and leading education ventures since 2016 where I have collaborated with a team whom thrive to build wellbeing communities on a quest to live meaningfully and light. By offering a growing catalogue of events, trainings and courses as fitness, health and nutrition experts.
“Building conscious individuals is my passion, and I have been doing that in my fitness career for more than 20 years, making the very best and questioning the why and truths to wellness and vitality. Together we laugh, we cry, we entertain, challenge and inspire.”

Tell us about yourself
I personally need support and camaraderie. I have worked in the sport and fitness community for many years and this work and environment matches my passion for philanthropy and giving back to females. I’ve collaborated with a variety of sports organizations and watersports brands for several years and worked on Team Training and management programmes. I love being in the health and wellbeing industry and seeing sports impact the lives of everyday people, not just people who’ve run marathons, changed themselves or shifted weight. The nature of my job is to support, connect and help women find themselves and their platform. I am more of a casual enthusiastic and trier of all sports and cant quite squeeze it to an expert level!
What keeps you working in the fitness world and outdoors?
I didn’t have a personal connection to holistic fitness or wellbeing, after 15 years, I do. It strikes a huge chord how intent health and spiritual focus, fitness and community have each beautifully changed my families life and wellbeing over the last few years. It has happened and I know that I’m working toward to gift this as solution to others and have the ability to help. It feels good to know I make a difference when people say a hearty thank you.
How has your mission changed or remained the same since you started working with women only?
In 15 years, a lot has happened in terms of my personal life. I’ve met many awesome women who really have helped me drive the vision forward and to see the fruits of my labour flourish. With passion I believe in a guide not an instructor, it is the heartbeat and direction for the manifesto of A FAT LOT OF GOOD girls. I have dedicated my soul to finding peace with the inner me, this has led me to yoga practice, mindfulness and an education which has been the life spirit of my balance as a mother and midlife.
A fat lot of good ‘Girls’ is part of the gentle movement that helps engage and ease more women into a healthy lifestyle that starts from the inside. I want to find the best and brightest confidence in women in the UK and am able to do that. Everyone wants their wellbeing put to good and maximal use.
What would you say to women wanting to get involved?
“Just do it.” It’s easy for me to say. This program provides the support and camaraderie that women thrive from being associated and bonding with other females. All of that reinforcement and reassurance of being a part of a community is built in allowing individuals to achieve their centred self. What is great is that you’re never alone. You join as an individual, but people who’ve never been part of an activity vibe in their lives finally get that feeling of female connection and bonding. It’s about more than just you, though. Everyone in this kind of group knows that they’ve done something good for other people and look forward to connecting.
What’s inspiring to you about this adventure?
The people. Everybody is busy today. We’ve got commitments. I’m inspired that so many people each year look for a healthy way to help and say, “I want to make a difference, do something good for someone else or for someone in my family.” Their commitment inspires me.
What’s inspiring to you working with women?
Community, its the safety net for women. We work to ensure that we have a community, connection and no one ever feels alone or vulnerable.
I wish to work on the ground, with the women who need to look up and notice the value of midlife. Bringing themselves back to connection with their bodies, hearts and the glorious moments there are to be had within its dance. A book, a hearty community and placing clear value on the peri and menopausal years.
