People of Fitness - Maria Powell

Maria Powell Testimonial PIcture“Fitness and being active has always been important to me. As a child I aspired to become an Olympic swimmer! I played every sport at school and for local hockey clubs. I gradually lost connection with this when all my time and energy became focused on gaining my qualifications and starting a family. Fast-forward to my mid-thirties, following 2 c-sections and almost a decade of very little exercise I was really noticing how this had impacted my body and my wellbeing. I promised myself that when my youngest child started school I would commit to re-connecting properly with my love of fitness. An advert for a trial with Ady Watts popped up on my newsfeed last September and I was curious to give it a try!

By the end of the trial I was hooked – I could already see so much improvement and felt much stronger!

Ady and the team have helped me understand and learn how to train properly. Through their person-centred approach I have also been supported to develop my breath work, which has been a revelation too! I love to learn about the science and evidence of how to look after my health and wellbeing. The workshops have been really interesting and supported me to keep progressing with my training and self-care.

Training has been invaluable in helping me to cope with the stress, pressures and demands of my work and lockdowns through covid.

Thanks Ady and the team!”
