The pioneer of pregnancy exercise

Exercise with Jane

Pioneer of Women’ Health Exercise programs

Yes, proudly one of the original “Women’s Health” physiotherapists initiating Women’s Health Programs in Sydney. “Yes the pelvic floor needs attention at all ages”, as another of these pioneers Pauline Ciarelli attests. And prouder still, Jane welcomes back her third generation families. Babies who first attended in their mother’s womb, becoming mothers themselves, returning for exercise in their own pregnancy or for the Mother and Baby Exercise Class. Their grannies now her Fitseniors.

From the moment she knew she was pregnant with daughters Rachel and Talia, Jane has been passionate about exercise and women’s health.” Women seek more qualified and knowledgeable guidance when it comes to exercise. They also seek experience”. So enriched by years of experience, Jane teaches women of all ages how to reach optimal physical strength and flexibility, passing on her knowledge and instilling confidence in “how to” exercise at every stage of life.

Her secret weapon is personal attention. Each and every class member is observed and corrected with every exercise, supported to reach peak physical potential under her watchful eye.

The first few weeks following birth is a steep learning curve where you probably have little time to exercise. However this varies from new mum to new mum and the spectrum is very wide.
