SASSI FIT WAS CREATED FOR ALL THE AMAZING WOMEN OUT THERE WHO WANT TO BUILD A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH THEMSELVES THROUGH FITNESS.
At Sassi Fit we understand the expectations and pressures faced by women in today’s society. We understand that every woman was created in their own unique mould. No two women are the same size shape or personality. Every woman deserves to have a positive relationship with exercise and fitness. Sassi Fit is an inclusive fitness space. We cater for all women, whether you are a gym junkie who wants to change it up, a runner who wants to learn how to strength train, a mum who wants an hour to herself or you have never stepped foot in a gym before and you want us to help change your life. We cater for you.
At Sassi Fit we recognise that traditional gym environments can be intimidating and unforgiving. We recognise that the pressures placed on women and in particular mothers and how they should ‘look’, ‘behave’, or ‘prioritise’ are unrealistic and harmful. As mothers we understand that your body changes after having children and to expect women to ‘bounce back’ to their pre baby shape is often impossible. We also understand the importance of training safely during and post pregnancy.
We understand that each woman is unique and we deliver a service that supports each individuals needs. Whether you have injuries or disabilities that are not catered to in the ordinary gym environment, you have pelvic floor instability or diastasis recti, whether you are yet to think about having children or your children are fully grown, we cater for you and your needs.

Caroline molloy | Founder | Head Coach | Pre & Post Natal Trainer | Teacher | Tribe Builder
Hi! I’m Caroline, coach, business owner and busy mother of two gorgeous, energetic children. I created Sassi Fit with the goal of building a tribe of strong, empowered women who support one another through fun fitness.
As a mum and as a pre and post natal trainer I understand the pressures and demands faced by mothers today. If I could remove one phrase from the world it would be ‘get my pre baby body back’. If you are a mum, your body has done an amazing thing. Exercise and fitness should be there to support your health, and to help you feel better. Fitness should be enjoyable and social. You should look forward to your work out. Not only because it makes you feel energised, happy and strong, but also because you have a tribe to spend time with while doing it.
After seeing what fitness and training options are out there and available to women, and to new mothers in particular, I know that we deserve more. We deserve classes that cater to our postpartum bodies, we deserve a training program that allows for the changing needs of a pregnancy, we deserve a training program that allows for our monthly cycle and changing hormones.
We deserve to train in an environment where it is safe to talk about our pelvic floor and learn how to strengthen these muscles just like we would any other muscle. We deserve to be given a training program that allows for a weakened pelvic floor or abdominal separation and helps to resolve these issues and not make them worse through jumping, running and extreme pressure. We deserve to learn how to eat to fuel our body for the demanding lifestyles we lead and how to teach our children how to have a positive relationship with food.
But we also deserve to feel confident, to feel good about our bodies and no longer feel pressured to ‘get our body back’ or get rid of our ‘mummy tummy’.
These pressures are unrealistic and harmful to women. My goal is to create a space where all women are confident and happy with their bodies and recognise what their bodies are capable of. Women are not smaller versions of men. And our training should reflect that.
We are strong and amazing creatures and we deserve to feel as fabulous as we are.
Stephanie Jeffs | Personal Trainer | Boxing Coach | Currently studying Diploma in Nutrition | Mum of two
I chose to study a few years ago to become a PT because I loved how it made me feel and how much it helped my mental health improve when I trained. I’m a very big advocate for mental health and training and love the difference training can make to people’s lives. Sounds corny I know, but when you’ve had clients that have been able to decrease certain medications and are feeling better within themselves, what more could you ask for?
For me, my goals as a trainer are to ensure that everyone has FUN (whilst getting extremely exhausted of course..!) while they’re training so it doesn’t feel like a chore and becomes something they look forward to and enjoy.
I absolutely love the path that I’ve chosen with pursuing my dreams of becoming a trainer and also to assist others to have a healthy relationship with food through studying my Diploma in Nutrition.
Travis Poznachowski | Personal Trainer | strength and conditioning coach | Diploma of fitness | sports lover
I have always been very active, whether it be playing sport over the weekend or growing up exercising throughout the week by going for a run or heading to the gym. Having worked for numerous sporting organisations over the past eight years I eventually decided to complete my Diploma of Fitness in 2016 to add new skills and gain work within the personal training industry where I can help others better themselves and improve their lives in any way I can.
I try to make my sessions enjoyable so people don’t feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed, something I believe is really important in everything you do. Exercise, health and fitness should be something we all enjoy and something to look forward to doing and that’s how I plan sessions.
For me, exercise is a way to relax, relieve stress and to feel better both physically and mentally. It’s amazing what fitness can do for your health and wellbeing. I live and breathe sport and to be able to work within the industry as a coach is a fantastic opportunity and extremely rewarding to watch others have better lives because of my help.
