Siobhan Middleton is a fully qualified personal trainer, movement specialist and nutritionist who specialises in pre and postnatal fitness and applied functional science. She is passionate about helping women to improve their overall health and fitness levels and grow their body confidence.
Early on in her career as a personal trainer, Siobhan realised that many gyms and studios didn’t offer any specific training or support that enabled women to reach their fitness goals – including options for pre and postnatal clients. She noticed that this left many women feeling frustrated with their lack of results, leading to a negative mindset and an unbalanced approach to diet and exercise.
With this in mind, Siobhan set out on a mission to remodel the fitness industry for women, and in 2014 she founded London’s first female-only fitness club – Beattitude – which offers unique, effective and innovative workouts tailored specifically for women of all ages and abilities. Located in Earlsfield, Beattitude delivers an extensive timetable including HIIT, strength, core, mobility and yoga, as well as offering many classes online, which can be accessed anytime from anywhere in the world.
