I'm Melissa Woodward. I'm a Women's Health Coach, owner of Fearless Health, and a busy mum of two energetic boys who keep me on my toes!  

To be honest, my body has been through a lot, especially when it comes to my journey to becoming a mum. And that's why I'm so passionate about helping other women heal their relationship with exercise, by treating you as a whole person with real life challenges.

My approach is gentle yet effective, and it's all about building strength in a way that feels good for your unique body.  

My goal is to help you ease back into movement, manage any pain or injuries you may have, and to give yourself permission to rest when you need it most. Because let's face it, life can be tough, and I'm not here to make it  tougher.

That's why I created Fearless Foundations - it's the program I wish I had when I was starting out on my own exercise journey, after each new life stage or challenge. It's all about helping you build a strong foundation of fitness and strength, in a way that feels sustainable, inclusive, and empowering.

Because we all love to tick things off our to-do list, I'll have each workout and coaching video as a new lesson so you can see your progress getting through the program.

I like to keep things simple for your at home workouts so all you will need is a set of dumbbells - I recommend starting at around 3kgs, depending on your current strength. You will find that will consistent workouts that you may need to find heavier dumbbells. I find that the dumbbells at Kmart, Big W or Target are all affordable options. Other sporting retailers will have higher quality options.

You may also require a bench or stable chair for modifications. And an exercise mat may come in handy for comfort. 

Not at all. I don't often wear shoes when I exercise in the mornings at home but you may find your joggers will provide you with some extra stability, the choice is yours.

And as the workouts are low impact, there is no need for a mechanically engineered sports bra. You may even choose no bra at all. I recommend choosing clothes that are easy to move in and are comfortable for you to wear. 

Strength training (sometimes also called resistance training) is moving your body against resistance. Whether it's with weights like dumbbells or with your own bodyweight. Some examples of the basic movement patterns we will go through are squats, push ups, lunges, glute bridges and more. If you don't know what any of these exercises are, try not to worry, I will be explaining every single exercise we complete. 

Absolutely! This program has been designed so I can cover all the basics that I need people to know about working with me. This includes how to modify the exercises so that you can start at the level that suits your fitness level. We often work in repetitions (reps) of an exercise and sets of reps. If I state the workout is 3 sets and you are feeling really tired after 2, then stop there. Next time you repeat the workout, you may feel able to try the 3 sets. 

For this current release of the program, I would recommend waiting at least 6 weeks after the birth where you have had your check up with the doctor. You can start easing into movement before the 6 week check and once your check up is complete, you can further ease into these new movements. If you have been through a c-section, you may feel more comfortable waiting a little longer. You can contact me to discuss before committing to the program if you are unsure you are ready.

Yes please! You are the people I aim to help the most. So often you have been told you cannot exercise at all or given some vague information about exercise based on the idea that the only way to move is high impact, intense or long in duration. Strength training is low impact, can be modified to consider your condition, can be short and effective and the intensity set at an appropriate level to help you feel energised, while managing muscle soreness.

There are no refunds offered for Fearless Foundations for change of mind or if you do not like it. I will also not refund if you do not complete the program. You will have ongoing access beyond the 4 weeks so you can always come back and start again at your convenience.
