MumFit was founded by Charlie Taylor, fitness professional, wife to Patrick and mother of Dylan.
I am a qualified solicitor, but after eight years in the law decided that life is too short to be stressed everyday. I looked for a career change into an area I am genuinely passionate about: health and fitness.
Being a mum myself I have been through the pregnancy journey, exercising all the way up to 39 weeks! I needed to maintain my exercise for my own physical and mental wellbeing, as the endorphins exercise brings has always given me a boost. There is no way I could have only done walking and antenatal yoga for 9 months!
I am now on the journey back to my pre-pregnancy self, trying to balance life as both a mum and a full time fitness professional. I am working hard to regain my previous fitness levels, gradually rebuilding my endurance and strength. This first hand experience makes me passionate about helping other women to do the same. I have successfully returned back to North Premiership hockey, which I played prior to my pregnancy, playing for Didsbury Northern ladies 1s. I grew up in Cheshire, going to school in Macclesfield and now live in Alderley Edge to be near those all important grandparents!

Best maternity class ever! Just wish it had been about before baby number 3! I tried all the typical baby groups but MumFit made me feel more human. So great to do proper exercise and meet new friends too. Charlie motivates everyone and is so lovely with the kids. Definitely a class to try!
I’ve always loved circuit training so when I heard about Charlie’s MumFit class I was very keen. I had my reservations, as post-natal classes can often be a bit tame, but no need; it was amazing to feel my heart pounding in my chest again.
I was addicted to Mumfit from my first class. It combines some serious workout in a friendly atmosphere while my little one was with me. I lost my pregnancy weight and made some good mum-friends along the way So if that’s what you want, look no further! Charlie is a wonderful trainer and very knowledgeable.
Mumfit really helped me get back into exercising after having my little boy. Charlie is excellent with her knowledge of what is safe to do when, whilst also encouraging you to get the most from the classes.
Charlie is getting me back to fitness safely. I have lost 9kg (1.5 stone) already and I am loving the sessions. She tailors the program to my needs, listens to my concerns and even looks after the baby whilst I train! She has helped me regain confidence and built my baseline fitness up again.
Charlie is really friendly and listens to exactly what you want to get out of each session and your ultimate goal. I trained with Charlie from 5-37 weeks pregnant, thoroughly enjoyed every session and I was able to take what I had learned safely into my own gym sessions.
The MumFit classes are fantastic as you get to socialise with other mums whilst exercising and there is someone to help keep an eye on the baby. I got enormous benefit from my PT sessions and felt she listened to exactly what I wanted, as well as being considerate to my particular postnatal circumstances.
Your sessions are amazing, I took my son to the doctors exactly 3 weeks ago and I weighed 12st 4. I weighed my self today at the doctors and I was 11st 5. I’m a 100% sold, sign me up to Monday’s and Wednesday’s sessions next year.
