Meet The Team

Pip Black

Pip Black

Co-founder of Frame and Mum-hood, Pip has been teaching Mumhood classes at Frame for over 5 years and is hugely passionate about supporting women on their journey through Mumhood.

Mum to Phin (4) and Romilly (2), Pip has found that taking time to look after both her physical and mental wellbeing has been a huge help whilst navigating the unknown territory of being a new mum! Learning that little and often wins the race, that learning to breathe to calm your mind really can “save the day” and that exercise really is a fantastic substitute to a glass of wine, whether to unwind or energise!!

You’ll find Pip teaching classes at Frame, in our Fit Mums programme online, and often talking on panels and hosting events to build the Active Mum Community that is Mumhood.

Joan Murphy

Joan Murphy

Co-founder of Frame and Mum-hood, you’ll find Joan teaching on the Mumhood Pregnancy Programme online and tutoring on our Pre and Postnatal Academy course.

Joan is mum to Zayden (5) and Jayla (2) and is proof that with positive energy, you can achieve pretty much anything. She is also Queen of the ‘MumHack’ so if in doubt “ask Joan” ;-)

When Joan became pregnant with Zayden, it opened her eyes to the lack of reliable and useful information out there, regarding pre and post-natal exercise, which was the catalyst behind the creation of Mumhood. Being a Kiwi, she loves being outside close to nature and is a massive advocate of how this, coupled with regular movement can help keep our minds and bodies happy and healthy.

Shelley Buxey

Shelley Buxey

Shelley runs MumHood classes in Brighton. Find out more here. 
Shelley’s journey into the health and fitness industry began with a passion for netball and athletics which led to a degree in Sports Science from the University of Brighton and then a lecturer in the same subject. She then became a personal trainer and fitness tutor, delivering and assessing personal training and CPD courses ranging from studio cycling, suspension training, exercise to music, and sports massage.

Shelley’s passion is to make women feel strong enough to take on their own challenges. “Many of my friends and family have suffered difficulties and complications pre and post natal, and so experiencing such a range of different journeys close to me has given me the knowledge and determination to make this journey for others become more physically and mentally beneficial on the mind and body. Working closely with pre and post natal ladies both in physical training and sports therapy has enabled a reduction in postural issues and an increase in core stability.”
