About the Author

As a passionate anti-diet culture advocate, a weight neutral, non-diet approach to exercise is always front of mind for Sheridan . In order to foster a healthy body image and relationship with exercise, she believes that the pressure placed on Mums to “lose the baby weight” or to look a certain way needs to be removed and that the fitness industry has so much more to offer women than weight loss.

​With an understanding that the postnatal period is forever and a safe return to exercise extends far beyond the 6-week check, Sheridan wants to help educate women about the important, yet often overlooked steps to building a strong foundation from the inside out. In taking the time to do this, Mums of any age and stage can exercise, enjoy the sports and activities they love or just move freely to meet the demands of every day life with confidence. Without pain, fear of injury or incontinence. Working closely with a Women’s Health Physiotherapist is a key component in achieving this.

Sheridan is currently taking some time away from offering training services to Mums to undertake further professional development in Health at Every Size® plus a new role educating other fitness professionals working with Mums as a Safe Return to Exercise®Master Trainer.
