Meet Project-B's new pre and post natal fitness expert - Dr Joanna Helcke

November 2013

Project-B is delighted to introduce their latest expert - Dr Joanna Helcké, creator of the UK’s first online pregnancy and postnatal fitness system

As you know, here at Project-B we have a team of experts to ensure you have access to the latest information in the world of pregnancy.

We are delighted to announce our new expert is a pregnancy and postnatal fitness expert – Dr Joanna Helcké.

Joanna Helcké juggles her career alongside looking after her three lively boys. In 2009 she founded Zest4lifeUK, her highly successful Leicestershire based pregnancy and postnatal exercise service and has, since then, looked after the fitness of hundreds of women, leaving them fitter and healthier than they have ever been before. She has worked with an entire spectrum of women, from fitness novices to professional athletes.

Her passion for enabling new and expectant mothers to experience the incredible benefits of pregnancy and postnatal exercise, has led her to develop an innovative nationwide specialist online pregnancy and postnatal fitness and wellbeing system, which is accessible to women, wherever they live and whatever their previous fitness experience. Her unique online system has just launched this November 2013.

On 14th November 2013 Joanna’s Company won the Best Sports and Fitness Group of the Year award at the What’s On 4 Me Awards at London’s Earls Court. Chosen from five shortlisted finalists, Joanna’s win is a fantastic achievement and testament to her expertise, energy and passion as a pre and post natal exercise specialist.

Joanna is a regular contributor to the national media, providing expert pregnancy and postnatal fitness comment for magazines such as Pregnancy and Birth, Mother and Baby, and Practical Parenting. She is also a writer and gives regular talks for NHS New Mums groups on adapting exercise for the pre and postnatal periods. Her love of writing and public speaking date back to her pre-motherhood career as a university lecturer, as does her academic title of Dr.

To avoid any possibility of confusion Joanna is an academic doctor, with a PhD, rather than a medical doctor or practitioner.

You can find more information on Joanna at where you can also have a taster of her unique online pregnancy fitness programme for free.
