She began to run local mum and baby fitness classes and also taught classes in a women's only gym for a couple of months before the the Covid pandemic hit. She decided to take her work online and run her classes through Zoom and used her social media platform to grow her client base. 3 years on, she still has clients who have been there from the start and has continued to expand her client base and now runs her online postnatal bootcamps 5 days a week from her own home, around juggling her 2 boys.
