I have always had a passion for Health and Fitness and truly appreciate the benefits and results the right nutrition and exercise programme can give to you when it becomes your way of life. After 12 years of working in sales and marketing within the healthcare industry and the birth of my 2nd child, I setup MummyFIT to help Mums feel good about themselves during an exciting but challenging time in their lives.

I am passionate about passing on my knowledge, expertise and experience as a Mum to MummyFIT members to help them achieve their goals and dreams.

I look forward to seeing you at one of our sessions very soon.

    Hi I’m Kate, proud owner of the Cheltenham and Gloucester MummyFIT franchise.

    Having had twin girls in September 2021, I understand the challenges of trying to get back into exercise, whilst balancing family life.  I used the creche at a corporate gym, but spent most of that time missing my babies, and of course there was the cost !  It made me think that there must be a better way….and that journey is what brought me to MummyFIT.

    Prior to becoming a MummyFIT franchise owner, I worked in the insurance industry for the majority of my career.  After having Madison and Olivia I wanted to do something different that not only I enjoyed but also challenged me.  I have always had a keen interest in fitness, having participated in half marathons, and even a half iron man before the girls came along !  

    Although it is still my aspiration to get back to the same fitness levels I had prior to the twins arrival, it is a work in progress and I want to help other mums who are on the same journey, or even getting into fitness for the first time.

    I know and understand the importance of meeting like minded people whilst on maternity and forming your own mum community so I look forward to welcoming you and your baby/babies to a session, and maybe getting to know you over a coffee afterwards.

      MummyFIT Franchise Owner

      Cheryl DeSilva

      I’ve worked in the exercise industry for over 13 years, everything from gym floor, group fitness, Personal Training to working for the NHS. I’m REPS level 3 qualified and have held my pre-& post-natal qualification for 9 years. Having worked for MummyFIT as a trainer since April 2018, I’m so excited now to have the opportunity of running the MummyFIT Cheshire Franchise.

      I’m a mum of two to Jenson and Freya, so I know what it’s like fitting exercise in to a hectic and unpredictable schedule. But I also know the buzz and benefits you get from nailing a workout with your fellow mummy friends beside you!

      If I’m not teaching a MummyFIT class, you’ll find me ferrying the kids to swim or the farm (or Costa) or teaching a Les Mills BodyPump or BodyCombat class.

      I look forward to seeing you and your little one(s) at a session soon!

      MummyFIT Franchise Owner

      Tracey Grantham

      Hi I’m Tracey & the proud owner of MummyFIT NW Leeds & Bradford.

      I discovered MummyFIT after wanting to get back into exercise after my second daughter was born and what can I say…. I have never looked back and wish I’d found them after my first was born!! After going through the MummyFIT journey myself and getting into the best shape I have ever been in I was well and truly hooked and made the decision last year to retrain as a Personal Trainer specialising in Pre and Post Natal Exercise to make my passion for health and fitness my day job.

      When I am not running MummyFIT classes you will find me clocking up some miles on runs or just generally running around after my 2 girls Thea & Harper and my husband!

      As a Mum myself I can relate to the constant juggling of fitting everything into our days and often not finding time for yourself or feeling guilty for finding that time. Training with us will tick all the boxes, little ones in tow and get you some well earned ‘Mum time’ with other like-minded Mums.

      Register for a free session and come and see me and I promise you won’t look back, you might even become one of the MummyFIT Family like I did!

      Sarah Bell

      MummyFIT franchise Owner

      Sarah Bell

      Hi, I’m Sarah! Proud owner of MummyFIT Wakefield & Morley.

      Fitness has always been a passion of mine. I joined MummyFIT in 2016 after having my first son Oliver, and loved what MummyFIT was about - great workouts, like minded mums and that all important catch up in the cafe after.

      In 2019 after the birth of my second son Edward, I attended MummyFIT again and loved it just as much as before. I soon made the decision to turn my passion for fitness into a career and retrained as a Personal Trainer specialising in Pre & Post Natal Exercise. My aim is to help mums and mums-to-be to feel as great as I did by attending MummyFIT and to work with them to achieve their health & fitness goals.

      As a mum of 2 young boys I understand the challenges of juggling family life and finding that time for you and your fitness. Being part of MummyFIT provided that balance, supportive network and had a positive influence on my boys - who now copy mummy’s exercises and understand the importance of being active (a little too active at times!).

      When I'm not teaching a MummyFIT class you will find me on long walks with my family, playing cricket or golf with my boys in the garden, completing a workout that Oliver has written for me or sweating it out on the spin bike!

      I am really looking forward to welcoming you and your little one(s) to one of our awesome sessions soon.
