VM Mom to Follow: Claire Gray, mobile fitness coach for new and expecting moms

This week’s VM Mom to Follow is Claire Gray, a mobile health fitness coach for new and expecting moms. Talk about an idea whose time has come! Born and raised in Kitsilano, she and her husband and two stepsons live near Queen Elizabeth Park. Claire owns and operates Claire Gray Pre + Postpartum, which offers in-home or on-location personal training for new and expecting mothers in Vancouver. She also offers nutrition programming and coaching services.

Claire recognizes the barriers in the way of self-care that many new and expecting mothers experience and her goal is to remove as many of those barriers as possible. She brings the equipment, does all the programming and will even hold your baby, nothing will get in the way of your self-care!

Five places Claire likes to go with her family

Granville Island

There’s something here for everyone in our family. Nate and I got married at Bridges Restaurant, the boys love to play in the arcade at the Children’s market and cruise the skate park.

I love getting my exercise in outdoors whenever possible. Margaret Pigott Park has its own beach access and is in the heart of Kits but just far enough from the main beach that you can feel like you’re the only one there.

I try and hit the Tower Beach staircase once a week for a leg and booty workout. There’s 410 stairs, only one way up and down, at the bottom you get to rest and take in an amazing view of Bowen Island and the North Shore.

My parents used to take my sisters and me to the gardens for picnics and games of hide and seek in the maze when we were little and we’ve continued the tradition with all seven grandchildren.

This is my favourite place to get work done. They are big on community and represent a lot of local and organic products and treats.
