About Me

I'm Claire (she/her) - Movement Fix is me, and I am Movement Fix.

I started my own fitness journey as an unsporty teenager who fell in love with running, and then with weight training; I loved being able to drive myself to be stronger every session.

In university, I discovered kickboxing, then Thai boxing, and eventually that led me to Brazilian jiu jitsu. Training and competing in combat sports showed me a whole new side of fitness and strength; how easy it is to push yourself when you are having fun and absorbed in the moment.

That experience also changed my relationship with food; I stopped thinking of food as something I had to earn, and saw it as a valuable tool to get better at what I loved doing.

Experiencing inevitable injuries - from minor niggles to the total rupture of a ligament in my knee that required surgery - highlighted the importance of preparing the body for the demands that life may place on it, and made me think about navigating that grey area between pushing yourself to improve and avoiding injury.

In addition to my own personal experiences, since 2013 I have worked with over a hundred clients - from children to seniors, from non-athletes to professional athletes - and can confidently say that there is no one-size-fits-all approach apart from falling in love with the ability to move.
