Hi I am Fi and the creator of PTFit. 
Ladies it is time to live your strongest, fittest, healthiest and happiest life as you transition through menopause!

We all experience “the menopause” and every women’s journey is different – that is why a one size fits all approach does not work!

Providing fitness solutions for women just like you who are nearing their 40’s and beyond, navigating through their next stage of life – the journey through perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause is what I do.

My true passion lies in helping women in all stages of menopause to have their joy of life, body confidence, health & fitness reclaimed, to be prioritized, and to feel like themselves again.

With my many years of experience & knowledge shared with you, you are supported, guided, and shown how to adapt, thrive, and discover as these hormonal changes are worked through with exercise and nutrition specifically for this transition.

There is a mind-field and often misguided information out there on how to “survive” menopause and it often leaves you feeling overwhelmed and confused. 
All this information has been taken by me and incorporated into a package and training options that will ensure that any advice given is correct, backed by evidence, and can be executed with minimal equipment is followed, and, most importantly, the results you deserve are achieved.
It is time to start feeling like yourself again and living your best life!
My journey

Having been through my own health journey, I am a Mum to 2 children.

Experiencing weight gain, weight loss, weakened pelvic floor, diastasis recti (abdominal separation), weakened core and going through the strengthening and rebuilding phase helps me to understand more about the female body.

A prolapse experienced during my 15th week of pregnancy with my 2nd baby, lead to a hysterectomy at the age of 36, when my baby was only 8 months old.

Now in my late 40’s, and experiencing my own peri-menopausal journey and all the symptoms of being midlife are actively being worked through with all my own discoveries and studies.
