COACH MANDY

We take a ‘health first’ approach at MH. That is, if your body is healthy it will be much easier for you to lose weight, get toned or build muscle. All whilst having energy, sleeping well, improving digestion and ability to tolerate different foods, reducing PMS symptoms, improving mental health and overall being your best possible self.
I am on a mission to help high-achieving women break through gut, hormonal, and metabolic dysfunction, burn fat and build muscle without the guesswork to feel confident, free, in control, and resilient!
 
I have experienced firsthand what it feels like to suffer from debilitating gut issues, feel let down by the conventional medical system, and struggle to get answers.
 
And I now strive to provide the service and the facility that I needed when I was at rock bottom and couldn’t find any help or answers.
 
I have been in the industry since 2011 with MH being founded in 2014 with tremendous success working in female weight and fat loss, gut, metabolic and hormonal health, athletic performance, behaviour change, and building a community of unstoppable women.
