Hi, thanks for visiting WinnieFitness.com.
My name is Winnie. I am an experienced personal trainer specializing in pre/post-natal fitness. I also have over 10 years experience as a community pharmacist.
I set up Fit Mummy Group Training with the aim of helping new mums and busy mums to stay fit and healthy using safe and effective workout progammes. As a mum myself, I understand it can be physically demanding during pregnancy, that new mums require specifically designed workout to speed up recovery and busy mums can find it challenging to have the time for a workout.
Now, I’d like to share my story with you. A bit of my past, before I became a personal trainer.
I’d struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. In my twenties, I joined my local gym, hoping I would finally get in shape. I would spend an hour on the treadmill or the cross-trainer. Sometimes I would attend aerobics and body combat classes. When I was at home I would try and fit in an exercise DVD. I always managed to finish the classes and DVD and I considered myself to be quite ‘fit’. I thought I must be quite unlucky as no matter how hard I tried, my weight just would not fall off.
In 2008, as a bride-to-be, I finally made the decision to get help from a personal trainer. She has taught me new exercises I have never done before, and helped me discover muscles that I did not know I had! In the first 4 weeks, I lost 4 kg. I began to really enjoy the fitness challenges and looked forward to each personal training session!
At 14 kg lighter, I re-trained as a personal trainer to help women get fit and strong.
Be the strongest and healthiest version of yourself. You CAN do it!
I believe it you.
I look forward to working with you!

I love research and completed a PhD degree in Natural Product Chemistry in UCL (2008).
