Pulling up to Kerry’s house, I was pretty excited to sit down with such an inspiration. I met Kerry a few years ago at a mummy fitness class and was treated to a 15 minute pelvic floor group training session. I was instantly taken with her knowledge of the body and her ability to challenge us even in a group setting with different levels of experience. When the idea for interviewing fitness inspirations in our communities came up at Kalila, I immediately thought of Kerry.
I was greeted at the door by her adorable children who proceeded to show me their toys before being ushered out by their grandmother for a walk around beautiful Quidi Vidi Lake in the heart of St. John’s, Newfoundland. Kerry now calls the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador home after transferring here two years ago for work with her husband. Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Kerry was a small business owner and trainer in London, England for years. She now works as a trainer at OrangeTheory in St. John’s as well as online via her Facebook training group.
Her energy is calming but you can tell there’s a lot of it underneath the surface. She’s extremely experienced, with a variety of titles and accomplishments under her belt. A certified personal trainer, Kerry is also a doula, a pelvic floor expert, fitness instructor and massage therapist. It’s not hard to understand why Kerry is so popular; she offers a global and well-rounded approach to her wellness consulting.
Her journey into the fitness and health world started from a natural love for fitness and she found herself working with mums through her experience with a private fitness club in London, England. Now a mum herself, she understands firsthand the challenges new mums face. We chatted about the best moves for new moms (Deadlift lovers rejoice!) as well as the need for more support post-birth from health professionals.
