ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Martha transformed her life through fitness, after a tough pregnancy with her second child. She suffered from histamine intolerance and developed severe chronic back pain in her youth, which heightened during her pregnancy. It took her six months to see results and become free from back pain. Through fitness, she found a way to cope with fatigue, improve her health and overcome obstacles to succeed in building a business doing what she enjoys.
Together with her husband Steve, the couple created short and effective fitness programmes so that people don’t have to spend hours getting fit. Martha has been motivating people to get fit through her Instagram account “martha_fitness”. In there, you will find her fitness journey, as well as her fitness videos.
Her idea of fitness is not conventional. She is also not part of the “aesthetic fitness” hype but champions fitness as a form of Rest and Refresh for living a fulfilling life. She wrote this book to help others find restfulness in life through fitness.
Martha runs a sports coaching company with her sister, Jill Quek. She was previously a firefighter and coached floorball in schools. She is a mother of two and is happily married to Steve Lee, a Physical Education lecturer.
