What others are saying
I first came to Rachelle with so much fear – fear of lifting, pushing, pulling and just moving in general, in case I’d make my prolapse worse. I’d had prolapse for a year and it had affected me not just physically but mentally too.
Rachelle started slowly and showed me correct techniques and empowered me to trust my body. I have learned so much about breathing, my menstrual cycle, using my core and pelvic floor. Every session was different and Rachelle is empathetic and intuitive – she has the magical ability to know what will make my body (and mind) feel great after each session. She creates great sessions whether it’s in-person or online.
I can honestly say Rachelle has changed my life. I can now approach things like lifting my children, pushing a shopping trolley, picking up boxes with confidence. I am stronger and love lifting weights (safely) in our sessions. I feel strong and have a better awareness of my body and listening to what it is telling me. I have Rachelle to thank for this transformation and I can’t recommend her enough!

This program is world class, the whole body approach is exceptional and life changing. Now I am finally able to live and move and be fit and fab at 50.
- Shay (49 yrs old)
Unfortunately I had 3 prolapses and needed surgery. I was told I would never lift more than 5kg again. With this programs help my pelvic floor is a 5/5 and I can lift weights again.
My surgeon and physio are so pleased with my rehabilitation. 2 years on and I still utilise the skills I have been taught about breathing and apply that in and out of the gym.
You are in the best of hands with Rachelle and this program. Life changing!

Just been to the urogynaecologist and dropsie has retracted 1cm and pelvic floor is stronger than last visit. This is all due to your program!
- Mary (51 yrs old) Dropsie is her nickname for her pelvic organ prolapse
I initially was recommended by two separate sources that advised that I should visit Rachelle at MEE ACTIVE. I finally listened and was ready to move forward and try and improve my health and strength. Before the first session I was nervous but really looking forward to see if I could improve my health, reduce my daily pain and become as strong as I could with what I had to work with.
What a revelation! After that first session and for the whole week following I used the No.1 lesson that I took away from that session. I learnt how to breathe to protect my pelvic floor. I found that when using the breathing techniques whilst performing my everyday home duties, the pain reduction was phenomenal. In some cases there was no pain, whereas before I would always experience pain. I actually felt, for the first time in many years that there may be a chance of improving my situation.
I was really surprised when I was on holidays for two weeks how much walking and other activities I could cope with. I didn’t have high hopes of being able to participate in all activities with the family. We walked a trail 8 kms long and I did the whole beautiful walk. I only missed part of one activity and that was because my knees were having troubles with the different ground levels. It certainly built my confidence and knew that I was on the right track and improving.
The biggest success so far is that I feel so much stronger and the severity and frequency of the pain has reduced substantially. Small tasks that used to cause pain and were so difficult now seem easy and I feel like I am getting my life back bit by bit.
I avoided trying something different for a long time. I am so glad I gave the program a go. In retrospect I should have started ages ago. Give it a go and you may be surprised like I am with the change in myself and feeling that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Rachelle.

Why I created the Focus on Core Program.
After attending a seminar on the core and pelvic floor I was immediately captured by the information I was learning and decided to take this back to my clients. After surveying all of my clients I found that a staggering 90% have some form of pelvic dysfunction.
I then decided that I must continue with this work so I went about studying further to completely understand the core system and how to integrate exercise and day to day tasks safely.
And the results speak for themselves. I have successfully helped many people deeply connect their mind and body and happily integrate back into movement and exercise they love.
We strongly advise you see a Women's Health Physiotherapist before commencing any exercise program.
