helping women learn about nutrition & exercise
Vanessa Augustus is a remarkable Savvy Woman. Over the last five years the Nottingham born Lifestyle Coach has hosted a range of well-being events. She has also successfully coached local women to help them achieve their nutrition and fitness goals.
Vanessa has recently launched a new service for Mums, Grandmothers and Carers in Nottingham. Working in collaboration with another healthcare professional.
The Mummy & Me Health Club is a supportive service set up to help women learn about nutrition and enjoy exercise in a child friendly environment.
“Since the first meetup with Vanessa I have become involved in improving my lifestyle. I am more focused on my nutrition and have learnt a lot of important information about my body composition”. – Jo Laverick
Last year Vanessa unexpectedly became a Mum again. After maintaining a healthy lifestyle during her pregnancy she was keen to return to physical activity. Her body was healing so gentle exercise was required.
Walking her baby in his pushchair was an obvious place to start. To keep motivated Vanessa started to invite local Mums along to a weekly walk.
After listening to the needs of the other Mums, Vanessa realised accessing affordable childcare was a barrier for many women. Starting and maintaining a weekly exercise programme with children requires support.
The Mummy & Me Health Club helps women stay focused on their health and well-being while they care for their children. Vanessa received funding to launch the service. Additional funding has now been secured to extend the service.
