Hey everyone! It’s been a while since my last post but my exams are over now and you’ll be seeing a lot more content soon enough. Let’s get to it then! 🙂


The 30 Day Little Black Dress Challenge was one of many firsts – my first fitness challenge, my first 30 day challenge and my first time blogging. It has been quite an experience for me with many highs and lows. I feel healthier and more confident with myself. I learnt many new exercises and how to squeeze them into my procrastination schedule. Your likes and comments have been a source of strength for me, motivating me to continue even through all the times when I just didn’t feel like getting active. I found out that not all types of exercise are super tiring and repetitive, and some could even be enjoyable if I just gave it a chance.

Final measurements:

B: 92cm
W: 74cm
H: 102cm

Overall impression:

I give this challenge a 8/10. The exercises are short enough that they can be completed in that small amount of time you are able to spare, but long enough that you feel the results. I strongly recommend this challenge to all fitness beginners and anyone who just doesn’t have the time or mindset to go to the gym or go for a run. I didn’t have any drastic changes to my measurements, but enough to know that this challenge does work. My muscles have become more defined and I feel less tired.

If you decide to try this challenge, please let me know. I want to know all about your experiences and impressions.

I’ll keep you posted. 🙂

Hi there and thank you so much for visiting my website.

After 14+ years of teaching fitness and Pilates classes in West Bridgford/Lady Bay I’m sorry to inform you but ALL OF MY CLASSES ARE NOW CLOSED.

I’m changing direction and am busy offering business coaching and training instructors (worldwide) online in my full-body, non-Kegel approach to pelvic floor function certification called “Your Pelvic Matters”.

The only client-based work I now offer is Personal Training specifically for pelvic floor dysfunction, online via Skype/Zoom.

The cost is £400 for 5 x 1-hour sessions with me, and the beauty is – you don’t even need to leave your house to make significant changes to your pelvic floor function.

All Personal Training sessions are video-recorded for you to review your exercise homework as many times as you like afterwards, and as long as you have a laptop, phone or tablet, you’re good to go!

Pelvic floor dysfunction won’t just go away I’m afraid, and my approach to rehabilitating it is very different from the “norm”.

So, if you’ve been doing the standard “squeeze and release” pelvic floor exercises regularly, and not feeling any change in your symptoms – a different approach may be exactly what your body needs.

Email me if you’d like to work with me 1-on-1 online for anything of the following conditions:

  • Incontinence
    (accidentally wetting or pooing yourself is common, but definitely NOT normal)
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
    (we should not have organs falling out of ourselves at the rate they currently are, but prolapse is my speciality)
  • Pre/post-surgery for pelvic floor or hysterectomy
    (yes, it’s possible to avoid surgery in some cases)
  • Labour/birth preparation during pregnancy
    (prevention is better than cure, and education is power when it comes to increasing your chances of a natural birth)
  • Infertility issues
    (give your “womb room to move” and go on to harness a human in there)
  • Pudendal nerve entrapment
    (3 simple lifestyle changes can give you relief, plus you’ll learn a tonne of info about how the skeleton should be loaded)

And, if you’ve made it all the way through here and you’re an ex-client, a very big thank you for your service since my very first Mummies and Buggies class in 2006!

Yours in pelvic health,

Claire Mockridge

With the Little Black Dress Project you’ll feel healthier, fitter, and more toned than you have in years, or even ever! You’ll be able to enjoy that glass of wine without feeling guilty, you will not have to constantly suck in, you can sit down without doing the dreaded shirt pull from your body.

Plus it won’t even have to stop there, you’ll finally have the motivation and momentum to keep moving forward to other goals that have been lurking in the back of your mind. Remember that bathing suit you wanted? (hint hint)

Those are just SOME experiences women, like you, have ALL the time; so why shouldn’t you?

Real Benefits

  • Confidence that you are doing the exercises your body needs to be doing, safely and correctly, because sometimes you’ve always wondered if you were doing them right in the first place.

  • Results each week whether it’s your pants getting loser or the weights feeling easier, each week there is always something new that you’ll experience and keep you excited for the next workout.

  • Support every step of the way because your NOT ALONE and this won’t be a lonely journey, you’ll be surrounded by others that have done, and are going thorough, what you’re going though.

  • Motivation that keeps you grounded and not falling off the wagon even after those long days with an angry boss, traffic jams and kids.

What’s Included?

Training Program

In addition to your classes at Readiness, you will receive a booklet of 20 On-The-Go Boot Camp style workouts that you can do anywhere! So the days you can’t be with us, you will still know what to do! PLUS….

Nutrition for YOUR Body

Yes this is one of the MAJOR components of this program. We all know it’s about the diet (hate that word) but we are going to make sure you follow science proven systems that will still have you eating real food. We have a 6-week meal plan for you along with pre-made grocery lists to keep things as simple as possible. Plus an amazing recipe book!


We hold you to a higher standard than you may hold yourself, because if you’re not accountable to someone only YOU know if you did, or did not, workout. Our entire focus is on getting you results. That’s why we do the most consistent and extensive progress tracking with our clients. That way, we always know what’s working and what’s not. What do I mean by that? You will just have to wait and see!

Daily Motivation

No one ever said this was going to be easy. Even with us at your side coaching you every step of the way there are going to be some days that will test your will power, we all have them. What we do to help out is send you some of most motivational quotes, stories and emails to just remind you why you started and to not give up.

Success Manual

Don’t you ever wish that you had a book to tell you everything that you wanted to know about what you are going though, why it happened, and what you can expect to happen over the course of your weight loss journey? You did think of that!? Well what a coincidence that we happen to have that EXACT manual just for you. Let’s just say, “You are welcome!” right now.

Private Facebook Group

You have Facebook right? We we add you to a private group just for those that are doing the program so that you can ask those questions that just popped up in your mind and not only get your trainer’s answers but answers from others that are doing the program as well. This alone will give you ideas that you never thought about and help keep you on your game throughout this program.

Discounted Groceries & Pre-Packed Produce

We have partnered with our good friend Lana, at Body Fuel Organics! You will receive a client card that will give you 10% off all of your groceries at Body Fuel Organics. Conveniently located at 1125 McDonald St. This round of LBD, Body Fuel will be offering pre-made bins with all of your produce pre-packed and ready for pick up! Doesn’t get much easier then that! You can also add and subtract things from your bin with ease using their online ordering system.

Inner-Self Workshops

Tracy Read, Personal Transformation Coach, will offer two workshops during the program focusing on creating more self-love and self-worth.

Ladies Night Out

We will all get decked out in our little black dresses and head out for some VIP treatment!
