About Restore & Revive

Healing From Within

Hi there!  I'm Karen and I'm a personal trainer and group exercise instructor from Newcastle (UK) currently living in Nairobi (Kenya).  I run classes focused on helping women restore the strength and function of their core and pelvic floor after giving birth.  I also offer strength & conditioning classes and Metafit HIIT sessions.

I have a daughter named Simran who is 6 and a son called Saran who is 4.  Simran was an emergency C section and Saran was delivered by VBAC- so I've experienced what it's like to recover from both types of deliveries.  I was fortunate to be able to remain active throughout my pregnancies doing spin classes, yoga and Cross Fit.  When my son was around 3 months old, I went back to Cross Fit and discovered that I couldn't do more than 3 double under without needing to pee!  It was at this point that I stopped impact training, consulted a Women's Health Physio and began studying post natal fitness as a speciality.  I learned how to ENGAGE MY CORE & PELVIC FLOOR , the importance of coordinating MOVEMENT WITH BREATH and I learned how important it is to restore from within before rushing into mainstream exercise classes.  

I launched Restore & Revive group classes in 2016 and since then I'm privileged to have been able to help over 100 women.  I tell my clients that I'm focused on helping restore the strength and function of your core and pelvic floor and not getting you back into your skinny jeans!  I believe in a RESTORATIVE approach that REVIVES the energy and vitality in women.

I am experienced in training women looking to

  • improve a Diastais Recti

  • rebuild Core Strength

  • strengthen their Pelvic Floor

  • reduce Stress Urinary Incontinence

  • return to mainstream exercise after having a baby
