Having taught for several years as a PE teacher Gemma then decided to set up her own business in the UK as a personal trainer and school sport consultant, this proved to be successful.
Having acquired a number of post natal clients she decided to complete a pre and post natal qualification and specialise in this area.
Pre and post natal fitness is an area that Gemma excels in. After having her first child via Cesarean section she is even more passionate about helping women truly understand the importance of core rehab before returning back to the gym.
She also enjoys the challenge of weight lifting and building strength and has worked with many women introducing them to weights and strength training to build confidence but also to educate clients on the positive benefits weight training can have on strength, posture, fat loss and metabolism to name but a few.
Passionate about health and fitness, Gemma loves helping people achieve their goals, boost confidence and enjoy fitness.
Every client is at a different point in their journey. Post natal clients need emotional support as well as physical support and motivation.
Having a baby can sometimes make finding time for you difficult for many new mothers in Dubai. Gemma is here to help with that accountability and to support you through the initial stages of core rehab after birth.
Too many women feel it is ‘normal’ to struggle with incontinence or back ache during exercise after having a baby, even years down the line. This should not be the case. She wants to help more women to rehab their core correctly to prevent these issues further down the line.
For all aspects of her personal fitness training she will ensure that exercises are safe and progress accordingly to help increase strength, posture, fitness and muscle mass.

Online coaching in Sharjah, RAK or Dubai can also be combined with face to face training too. She will provide the program through the app, clients complete the program using the videos provided and tick it off when completed so she can check they have completed the program.
For online training it is advisable to have some smaller items of training equipment that can easily be stored at home. This includes:
Using just these small items can make a big difference in the types of exercises you can comfortably do at home.
