To help other mums to feel amazing again about themselves but not only on the outside but on the inside too. She strongly believes in the importance of taking ME time to reconnect with yourself, with other mums that are on the same boat and share their experiences.
Meli is passionate about educating our mums so they know what is going on with their bodies after giving birth, know that it can take a while before it is safe to go back doing whatever they were doing before getting pregnant; but that doesn’t mean they have to stop exercising, they just need to move in a safe way helping their bodies with the postpartum process.
She says: I see many mums pushing themselves really hard because they want to look the way they used to look before becoming a mum, but only focusing on the outside. It is my mission to educate them and help them to become strong and healthy mums not only physically but mentally and spiritually as well.
Because moving and having a group to go to help to reduce the chances of having postnatal depression.
Meli is mum of 1, she has a dance and dance teaching background and always felt fascination about the human body and the things it can do. At 25 when she quit dancing she wanted to keep being involved with movement and started her fitness journey working for a global educational fitness company doing educational videos for fitness professionals and teaching courses in several countries.
After becoming a mum and having to deal with PND she thought “how am I going to raise happy, strong kids if I’m not happy with myself?” and took some time to reconnect with herself and later decided to take a step forward and took her education to the next level getting pre and postnatal training qualifications.
My session with Meli a few weeks ago was very insightful. I have been incorporating many of the exercises I learned into my daily routines at home, especially the pelvic floor exercise which was very helpful to do. Meli explained all the different techniques very well and she corrected me as I needed.
She is very approachable and easy to talk to, particularly regarding those more personal areas that most exercise classes avoid. The class was intense and very interesting to do and Meli was very clear explaining the different movements. I will definitely come back for more!
I’m happy to share my experience of the class we had with Meli in the park. During the session, we went through various exercises, making it really dynamic and interesting, that, also helped us stay focused in the class. The expertise and guidance she provided throughout the training session was amazing.
She worked excellently with all of us, and her knowledge and ability on the matter are all but unmatched. Her persistence kept me focused and committed to the schedule. Spend time in the park sharing with other mums is a plus. The best way to exercise!
Training with Meli is fantastic. I started with one on one sessions but later I joined the group sessions. The classes are fun and enjoyable, every time different and challenging to keep us motivated. I would recommend her to everyone.
She helped me to improve my fitness, correct my posture and she also gave me useful advice on how to take care of my body focusing on warm-up, exercises and stretching. She always ensures that my technique and posture is correct in order to avoid injuries.
Thank you Meli for all your encourage and support!
Can’t rave enough about my sessions with Meli. I was feeling as though I needed more from my exercise routine but was also aware that My body wasn’t the same as it was from before baby number two. Meli offered challenging but enjoyable sessions which were safe. I would follow Meli anywhere to train with her.
It is tough to feel comfortable in most exercise environments when you have to take your young children with you but Meli made me feel happy at all times. Meli showed flexibility and understanding with my 18 month old too, she loves Meli and enjoyed my sessions as much as I did. I can’t think of a better way than to start my mornings training outdoors in the park with Meli.
Meli helped me immensely postpartum. Helped me be more in tune with my body, and to return to my pre-baby weight within 6 months. It was such a load off my mind to be able to work out for the full hour without having to worry about bub, and know that she was in good hands with the on-site nanny.
Super recommend Meli to help kick your butt into gear and motivate you and take some time out doing something for yourself.

I’ve been training with Meli over the past few months, I’ve gotten stronger and fitter. I have enjoyed meeting other mums in the area. Thanks for everything Meli!
Meli is really conscious of where you are at physically postpartum and takes great care to personalise your workout. Love her classes.
