Strong Mums Club far, far exceeded my expectations. If you're a new mum, feeling tired or isolated or mentally/emotionally drained or struggling with feeling good within yourself post-partum I can't emphasize more how much you may benefit from Strong Mums. I wasn't a regular gym person, I didn't know how to lift weights but our one hour small group sessions were a lifeline to building myself up post-partum. Working alongside other mothers provides the accountability I needed to get into shape and the benefits have helped in and outside of the gym. Becs' training style is the right balance of encouragement and pushing you to go further. Also a huge bonus is bringing my baby- I can't speak more highly how Becs runs such a positive and welcoming space for mum and babies and manages a room of us like a champ! This is hands down the most beneficial mum and baby programme I"ve been to because it focused on building me up and was also stimulating and social for my son. I walked away feeling stronger, less alone and motivated. I am so grateful to Becs for building such an important programme that I wish I could gift to all new mums.
Strong Mums Club has been a highlight of my maternity leave. After two pregnancies and two c-sections, my body felt tired and weak. I decided to sign up for Strong Mums Club to regain strength and energy, so I could be the best version of myself for my children and wife. The programme was well-structured and full of variety. Tracking the weights we were lifting and seeing the numbers increase week on week was a great source of motivation. The support from Becs and the other Mums provided accountability and encouragement which really helped on the sleep-deprived days when making it to an exercise class felt like a huge challenge. I left every single session feeling energised and with a clear head. Thanks to Strong Mums Club I am now fitter and stronger than I have been in years and have lost all of the weight I gained during my pregnancies. It has also equipped me with the habits and tools I need to maintain and continue to build my strength and fitness. Exercise feels good again and is no longer a chore. I would wholeheartedly recommend Strong Mums Club to anyone looking for a sustainable and sociable way to rebuild their strength and fitness after pregnancy.
I have loved my time training with Strong Mums Club during my maternity leave. It's the first time I've ever committed to a fitness program and I found it so rewarding and motivational that I signed up for a second block straight away. I loved that each week I could see tangible improvements. I knew I was getting stronger because I could see it in the weights I was lifting. I didn't realise how much it would help my overall fitness levels too, when I went for my first run post-baby, I was amazed at how strong my legs were and how much further I was able to go than I thought I would. Becs has a brilliant sense of when to push you, without ever putting pressure on you.
My stamina throughout the day has improved, the physicality of parenting is easier now that I feel stronger, and I now feel like I want to commit to fitness long term (I have signed up to a weightlifting gym and am running regularly).
Postpartum I've had days where I've felt really low or it's been particularly hard with the baby, but when I've made it through a class I have always felt so much better afterwards.
I feel much stronger, especially in my legs, healthier and am much more confident. My clothes fit better, I am a more active parent, I'm not daunted by running around after my little one when she starts toddling!
I’ve adopted some healthy habits including protein as the main part of a meal, walking a few extra bus stops along the route and finding time in the week to exercise.
I would 100% recommend Strong Mums Club to other mums and if and when I have another baby, I will be back!
The small group personal training sessions are brilliant and I would definitely recommend them. I feel much healthier and am certainly a lot stronger than I was before I started, which is handy with a growing baby to look after. I honestly didn’t think I’d be lifting the sort of weights I am now when I started, and really appreciated having someone to help guide me through starting to work out again safely and properly.
Becs is an excellent trainer, tailoring exercises to my new mum bod, she kept me motivated, pushed me when I need it, and is an excellent baby entertainer when needed too. I really appreciated having a couple of hours a week to look after myself, in a space that is very baby friendly with other mums who are all in the same boat. Looking forward to the next sessions!
Having completed two rounds of the program I can say hand on heart it’s made a real difference to my daily life.
I have suffered with a back injury on and off throughout my adult life, cycles of feeling daily pain, which would go away for a while and then return. Despite doing regular Pilates, swimming, being an active person nothing ever seemed to solve the problem.
Since I’ve joined the small group class and began lifting weights I can’t believe the difference. I don’t feel pain and on top of that I feel strong, have found my confidence with lifting, have met some lovely mums and got back into my jeans. If it’s something you want to do but your doubting your abilities, I’d highly recommend you give it a go. Bex is great, listens to your goals and helps you push yourself in a safe gentle way.
I've thoroughly enjoyed the small group PT programme. After months of half hearted attempts, it was great to have a structure, goals and workouts that I'd committed to in advance, making me far more likely to actually do them!
I've found the helpful encouragement (and accountability) from Becs invaluable, and have been able to clean up my diet, increase my cardio in manageable ways and quit the tired/emotional eating habits. I'm super happy to have met my weight loss goals earlier than expected, I'm back in my pre-maternity clothes and feeling energised, happier and healthier. I'm also feeling stronger and it's such a good feeling to find some exercises easy now that were nearly impossible before I started.
I'd definitely recommend Strong Mums Club to other parents, it's great value for money, Becs is super positive (but also understanding) and it's a nice way to meet other Mums in the same boat.

I've had a fantastic time with the Strong Mums Club small group programme. I was previously clueless as to strength training and knowing what to do in the gym. I've gained so much confidence in my workouts and feel at a good level of fitness to maintain once I go back to work. I feel great about my body too, having lost 4kg and 8cm off my waist.
Becs is great, she is very supportive and encouraging while maintaining a lovely calm air.
The small group programme is brilliant format as you meet fellow mums and your baby has others to hang out with. Plus the accountability of being in a small group helps the motivation to come to sessions!
Strong Mums Club has made me feel like me again. I started the program at 3.5 months postpartum with lower back pain and pain in my knees. Becs created a program that focused on strengthening the muscles surrounding my ankles and muscles that you need generally as a new mother. After 12 weeks, the pain in my lower back and knees is basically gone, I lost 4cm from my waist (without being on any fat loss program) and I feel energised and confident. Becs has a great was of motivating us to increase the weights for the exercises that we are doing whilst ensuring we are not overdoing it.
After the 8 week program I have lost 3-4kg, I feel stronger, healthy and generally more confident. I feel like my pre-pregnancy self, more comitted to a healthy lifesyle choices and back jogging.
Becs is a brilliant trainer. She is very laid-back. I always felt very motivated but never stressed. I felt safe doing all the exercises weights. I've previously had a history of lower back discomfort and she has always kept this in mind and I havent had any back problems since starting the program. I think becoming stronger has helped my back and all my joints generally. I hope to maintain these changes!
I did the 8 week small PT sessions in the hot and sweaty summer of 2022. Each week we lifted heavier weights and by the end of the program I really felt the difference. Being a mum is so physical, feeding, carrying, get on and off the floor. Strong mums really helped me feel a lot stronger and more energetic even when fairly sleep deprived.
Becs also supports and educates you around the nutritional side of things. Importantly we learnt about the low calorie side of drinking, champagne and tequila is preferable- but not together!
I’d really recommend it, I felt great after the classes and where else can you take your baby (and occasionally toddler too) workout, make friends and have a laugh.
Strong Mums Club small group training program has given me a new lease of life after the birth of my twin girls. I lost my pregnancy weight and regained confidence in my body. I feel stronger and more toned which is a fantastic feeling I’m determined to maintain. What you learn in the sessions is invaluable and can be applied to all future training and support a healthier, fitter lifestyle.
Becs is amazing with the support and encouragement she offers, you’ll surprise yourself with what you can achieve
Strong Mums Club gave me the confidence to get back to running, cycling and swimming after my second baby. The sessions are great at building up strength in a fun and relaxed environment, where babies are welcome. You are in safe hands with Becs. She will tailor the sessions to individual needs and will always make sure you leave having felt the burn! These classes were a regular feature of my maternity leave and I would recommend to any new mum.
After 8 weeks I have lost 9cm from my waist and 6% of my total weight. I am so much stronger and my energy levels are the highest they have been since the birth of my 3rd child. I am so surprised at the progress in 8 weeks, I was lifting weights I couldn’t have even picked up at the beginning. My diet and nutrition has changed and supports me on my journey to being a strong mum! Thank you.
I started the program three months after my baby daughter. My main aim was to get back into the swing of exercise after a year off. I wanted something fun, supportive and challenging. I feel that Becs and Strong Mums delivered that. Becs was a great PT and I felt very supported. Becs went out of her way to write a program that was suitable for my fitness level and took into account an injury I had at the time. I now feel stronger both mentally and physically since completing the program. I would recommend to anyone wanting to get back to exercise after having a baby.
The 8 week programme has been a crucial part of my journey into motherhood. After giving birth to my twins, it was very important for me to get back to working out. It helped me build back my body and regain confidence. Thanks to Becs and the programme, I am planning on doing a half-marathon and a triathlon, just when the twins will turn one year old… a massive milestone. I am so proud of my journey. The programme really empowered me! Every woman should be able to enjoy this programme as part of their recovery, the NHS should pay for it!
The small group personal training with Becs has been great! I would truly recommend it.
It was beneficial being inspired by the others in the class, meeting new mums and getting stronger week on week.
I feel much more like myself after doing the classes and feel proud of what I have achieved fitness and weight loss wise. I have also eaten more eggs than ever before!
Becs is welcoming and a supportive influence and understands / pushes your goals while making it realistic and doable in the midst of busy mum life. The bi weekly classes have made me feel positive within myself.
