Gemma was born in England with a clap of thunder and a flash of lightening according to Dad.
Gemma had her first personal training session. This new found love for fitness made an impact on confidence, mood and general happiness.
Gemma started to work for the Fire Brigade as a Fitness Advisor. After realising there was no provisions for women to stay fit during pregnancy or coming back to work she created her own role as the go to person for ante and postnatal exercise advice. The level 3 qualification that she obtained was good but it left Gemma with unanswered questions when helping clients. That led to another 7 years of research and study.
Gemma wasn’t happy with the “just live with it” advice from her Doctor and escalated her research and found Katy Bowman and her books on alignment. Just by implementing some of the advice her back and hip pain gradually subsided and her pelvic floor was able to heal.
Gemma gave birth to a glorious little girl. Throughout the pregnancy there was a little hip pain but nothing compared to the previous time. The labour was so short and easy that the midwives didn’t have time to fill the birthing pool – 45 minutes to be precise with no pain meds not even gas and air. The difference between the two births was phenomenal.
Her children also made her realise that the happiness and health of Mum filters down to the children and that the world we live in does not always make healthy choices the easy choice.
The idea of Generation Move was born. Gemma started to convey the information of how our movement habits can lead to troubles during and after pregnancy.
One of these habits is sitting in chairs which led to another passion: changing the up classroom. Previously Gemma had presented and provided workshops to office staff about the dangers of too much sitting. She has since presented to some schools including the winners of 2017 TES best school of the year award. She hopes to help teachers create movement in their lessons to keep children agile and healthy into their adult lives.
