"I tried Mel and Lily’s class with my 14 year old daughter, and it was a complete hit. Any worries that one or the other of us might not like it disappeared the minute we walked through the door, and we just had the best hour, working out and killing ourselves laughing.

Mel is a treat, the music was super fun, and we got to work together on exercises packed a sneaky punch and left us satisfyingly stiff and pleased with ourselves all weekend. To be alongside other mothers and their daughters was just brilliant, and I found it really moving. It’s rare to get a space where we can all play. As we walked into town for snacks after, we agreed that it was the perfect start to the weekend, and probably time we wouldn’t have taken to be together otherwise. We’re booking again, and my daughter liked it so much she’s up for it twice a week.

Here's a bit more lowdown on the feel of the class, if this is of interest.

Expect to work as a team of two, and in games and activities with others, generally with a ‘let’s challenge ourselves’ edge. Despite promising my daughter this wouldn’t happen, there is some cardio, alongside holds, hangs and bodyweight strength work, which feels really satisfying.

Mel subtly adjusts and differentiates as you go, so that you work together, but to your own level of challenge. We all had different levels of experience in our group, and it looked like everyone loved it and left buoyed up and happy. 

A genuine feel good class, on so many levels."

"My daughter and I absolutely loved Mel’s class. We had such fun! Mel was very clear at explaining/demonstrating the exercises and even gave alternatives in case they were too difficult.

It felt like such a warm, friendly environment and such a precious thing to do with my daughter. I left feeling closer to her somehow especially as she took her time to show me how to do most of the exercises I’d forgotten. I loved it that she felt empowered to help her Mum!

Thank you so much Mel for such an amazing idea. Your warmth and friendly manner energised us."

Sharon & Safi

"My girls loved it!

Asked when we could do it again that evening.
Thank you, Mel, such a friendly, supportive space."

Catherine, Jessie & Ella

"Mel’s classes are completely unique and utterly brilliant. They’re pitched perfectly so that mums and daughters have a great work out – and lots of fun! I got to try things I never would have before, to hang out with my daughter and have a giggle AND do some much needed exercise.

What’s not to love."

Clair & Juno

"We love our mother and daughter classes. They are so special – spending time doing something that we both enjoy together. My daughter looks forward to it each week. She wants to be strong and I want her to learn the importance of good technique, so that she doesn’t get injured. It’s also a lovely and supportive community – so we get an emotional  boost each week as well as a physical one."

Sarah & Maggie

"Me puts you at ease immediately and her classes are fun, accessible and a fab workout. The idea of mother and daughter classes is fantastic – modelling the benefits of exercise to our girls in a safe and nurturing group and carving out special time together too. Mel and her fantastic daughter Lily are positive role models and I guarantee you will leave feeling energised and smiling!

We can’t wait for the next one."

Astral & Eva

"That a lovely way to get fit together!

I loved spending time with my daughter in a different way. Supporting and challenging each other over fun workouts."

Sarah & Nancy

"Mel is creating something wonderful with her Bodyweight and functional fitness classes for girls and their Mums.

My daughter and I get to train together in an inclusive and friendly environment where Mel keeps us motivated to keep moving.
Alongside wanting to get in more burpees than my daughter!"

Celia & Winnie

"Mel, thank you, we had a blast!

I’m not sure if we did more giggling or groaning (the groaning was all me), such a fun class to do together, fab music, fab trainer!
We both came out with big smiles and sore abs the next day (again, all me!).

Thank you x"

Caroline & Marli

"Dear Mel

Thank you for introducing me and my daughter to FRIDA, me & i. The muscle strengthening session helped me target areas that my daily high intensity exercise doesn’t even reach. As a duo of mother and daughter, it helped tap into the bond that we crave as parents. With your guidance, my daughter was able to encourage me to exercise longer and build my stamina. 

Thank you, Mel. I look forward to our weekly FRIDA, me & i."
