About Me

No More Waiting Mama…!

Please please hear me when I tell you that waiting to take care of yourself helps NOBODY! The moment I started taking care of myself first, both my life and my family life transformed in so many wonderful ways.

Hi, I’m Alex, mamma of my baby boy Kuba, Health Coach, Founder of Active Happy Mama, marathon runner and big-hearted human being. I’m a qualified fitness trainer and nutritionist too. I’m passionate about supporting women’s bodies with fitness and lifestyle strategies that are fun, easy to implement and make a huge impact on our health and wellbeing.

I’m all about cutting through the complex diet rubbish and helping busy mamas to find strategies that work with minimal but consistent effort.

When I had my son Kuba, I had no idea how much my life would change. I loved him to bits, but no one had prepared me for not-so-lovely aspects of motherhood. The sore nipples, the never-ending wake ups, the loneliness, the boredom, the frustration.

I became so exhausted that I had no time or energy to focus on my health or fitness habits, so I just figured I’d wait until that time magically showed up in my life…. that was my biggest mistake!

I’ve always lived a very active life, I used to dance and was a cheerleader before becoming a professional trainer, so I was desperate to get active again after giving birth. Even though I was so exhausted and had no time to take care of even my most basic needs… I set myself up for challenges I’d have no choice but to step up to with my training routine…

When Kuba was just 6 months old, I crossed the finish line of a HALF MARATHON… and when he was 7 months old I ran my FIRST ever MARATHON. I completed TOUGH MUDDER a week after that – which is a 12 mile obstacle course and team challenge. Every event tested my physical and mental strength, not only during the race but also during my training in preparation.

Was it hard? Yes, it definitely was!

Preparing to run 26.2 miles itself is demanding… training for Tough Mudder on it’s own is a major challenge… doing both together is a killer combo… and doing both with a small baby… while breastfeeding… while enduring sleepless nights… is plain crazy.

 

It was probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life.

But it also showed me what I’m capable of. Now, I’m not asking you to go and run a marathon, but I want my story to show you that anything is possible for you too, when you make the commitment to yourself. I really feel that all these crazy challenges saved me – both as a woman and as a mother.

I know I’d go crazy if I spent every hour of my day with my child, even though I love him so much. Committing to my training schedule was my little escape, some precious time just for myself – time when I could recharge my batteries and take a break to see my mummy-challenges from a different perspective.

STAYING ACTIVE HELPS ME FEEL LIKE A BETTER MOTHER, A BETTER WIFE, AND A BETTER HUMAN BEING!

I realised there must be so many other mothers out there going through the same things as me, and I got the idea to launch Active Happy Mamas to provide fitness, nutrition and coaching to mamas who wanted to get back into shape and start loving life again after having a baby.

I’ve always been a huge fan of personal development, and I even started a Polish branch of Tony Robbins’ Basket Brigade – delivering food hampers to families in need during Christmas and Thanksgiving. It was then I discovered the true power of community in action and I saw how really anything is possible with a supportive group of people all focused on the same mission.

I knew I had to create a focused community for mothers, to bring back feelings of freedom, wellbeing and support to successfully achieve their health goals after giving birth.

And that’s exactly what I’m doing now. Providing professional advice in fitness, nutrition and coaching, while welcoming mothers like you into the Active Happy Mama community to finally get the support you need to start feeling like you again.
