Eliza Flynn is a highly qualified women’s health fitness specialist who works within Islington and online. Eliza is a pre and postnatal personal trainer, who works online and in-person to help women reach their fitness goals in a fun and accessible manner.
Hi, I’m Eliza. I’m a mum of three young boys who strives to live a healthy lifestyle, despite my children’s best efforts at sleep-deprivation. I bake when I’m stressed, am a regular at the Highbury Fields Park Run and am stuck in the 90’s with my music taste (as you’ll know if you come to my indoor classes!)
I’m also passionate about helping other women feel strong, confident and happy during major life changes – mainly during pregnancy, after pregnancy and in the lead-up to menopause. I incorporate my experience and qualifications as a personal trainer, sports massage therapist, barre instructor, ELDOA practitioner, casual runner and general cheerleader to anyone who wants to get fit, to provide a caring, friendly environment for mindset and physical change to take place.
I work in Islington (group postnatal classes and in-person personal training), as well as worldwide, thanks to the greatness of the internet.
Whether you’re looking to stay strong during pregnancy, or you want to improve a diastasis and regain core function after having your baby, or want to feel more in control of your fitness as you move towards menopause, I have the skills and expertise to help.
One of the reasons why I do what I do was because of the WTAF moment I had after I had my first baby. My body felt SO strange. And it took a while before it felt like it belonged to me again. And with every pregnancy and every baby, it changed even more. I’ve worked my way through diastasis recti, unreliable pelvic floor, and I’m currently exploring life with a prolapse (thanks third baby for your very fast appearance!). However, it’s not stopped me from going on a course to learn how to jump rope 🙂
I know what it’s like to feel like your body doesn’t belong to you. And I know what it’s like to want to like your body again.
And I’m pretty sure I can help.
Alongside my personal years of experience returning to full fitness after having a baby, and successfully managing diastasis recti, a prolapse and children who hate sleep, I’ve also got the following qualifications:
- Level 3 Personal Training
- Postnatal with Burrell Education
- Level 3 Sports Massage
- Level 4 Sports Injury Massage
- IASTM course with T3
- ELDOA 1-3
- Barre teacher training
- Rocktape kinesiology taping course
I’m very proud of the courses I’ve done. They allow me to approach each client individually and approach an issue from several different angles.
The Warrior Method
I could have just used my name for my business, but I liked the idea of the warrior. I bought myself a necklace by a Greek jeweller. She had sewn the word WARRIOR in Greek onto a piece of cloth and then stretched and manipulated it to see what shapes it made. The pendant was a cutout of that shape. I loved that it wasn’t readable. I loved that even under so much duress and change, it still looked like a strong shape. To me, it resembled the strain and stresses that we undergo which change and shape up, yet we still remain strong. The Warrior Method helps you train, not just your body, but your mind too, for everyday battle. And by ‘battle’, I mean all the curveballs that life throws at you – whether that’s a longstanding battle due to a sleep-thieving child, or something more in the moment, such as stubbing your foot in a most painful way. It’s about the ability to handle these setbacks – ideally with good grace and humour, but failing that, without entirely losing your sh*t.
