Taking Charge of Your Fertility Nutrition Modules
MODULE 1: Fabulous Foods for Fertility – Food can have an incredibly positive impact on your health and your fertility. In this module you'll learn what to eat, what to avoid, how to structure your meals, and how to maintain this way of eating for life. With this module you'll get a 7 day fertility friendly meal plan and fertility nutrients check list.
MODULE 2: Your Gut, Your Hormones & Reproductive Health - Your gut does much more than just digest, absorb, and excrete food. Your gut influences the health of every system in your body, including your reproductive system. In this module we’ll look at the importance of understanding and supporting your gut for fertility, a spotlight on thyroid health, fertility tracking and vaginal health.
MODULE 3: Optimising Male Fertility - When it comes to fertility there is a lot of focus on the female side. But we know it takes two to make a baby, so sperm health is equally significant. In 30-40% of cases the cause of infertility can be male factor, so it is important you both work on this. In this module we’ll be looking at testing for male fertility, lifestyle factors and how they affect sperm health, and nutrition for male fertility to help those swimmers swim!
MODULE 4: Your Lifestyle, Your Environment & Fertility - Your lifestyle is equally important when it comes to supporting your fertility. We'll cover sleep hygiene, stress management, and the importance of self care. We also look at the environment you are living in, and how it might be affecting your fertility. We’ll uncover the toxins that could be disrupting your hormones and sabotaging egg and sperm health, and what you can do about it by following some simple and easy changes.
Live Coaching Sessions
In addition to the nutrition education modules and fitness app, we'll be delivering live fertility health coaching sessions every fortnight. During these sessions we'll guide you through your fertility transformation, helping to keep you accountable to the changes you're making, and motivate and inspire you to get the results you're looking for!

If you are looking to prepare your body for pregnancy, feel healthier, get ready before fertility treatment, lower your BMI or perhaps work on your mental health, this course is for you.
Not only will you be provided with an 8 week fantastic full body workout plan with two workouts per week, everything is delivered via an amazing, state of the art fitness app.
All the workouts are designed by Maria, Founder of Fitness Fertility and qualified personal trainer and pre and post natal trainer, and all exercises are demonstrated for you in the app so even if you have never worked out before, you will know exactly what to do.
You can work out at home or in the gym (but everything is minimal equipment so don’t worry if you don’t have gym membership) at a time that suits you.
You will also be part of a supportive and friendly community group with everyone else on the course where you can share how you are getting on, support each other through the workouts and check in with each other throughout the 8 weeks.
Community is key to this journey and we can support you with that. You can message Maria in the app any time via the very easy to use messenger service (just like WhatsApp but within the app), send pictures, videos and ask any questions you have.
You will also be set up with healthy goals and healthy habits and these tie in with the topic of the fortnight so that you are really putting into practise the advice Julia gives you. So in short, it is like having a personal trainer and a supportive community in your pocket for the entire 8 weeks of the course.

Do you want to know what the best supplements are to support your fertility?
Supplements can be very helpful for supporting your fertility. However, there are many different brands and formulas on that market that vary hugely in what they do. Blindly taking lots of different supplements can be a waste of money and even do more harm than good. You are an individual, which means that your supplements must be tailored to your needs, so it is always important to work with a certified practitioner in this area to get advice on the right supplements for you.
By attending this course you’ll have the opportunity to book a one to one supplement review with Julia Young Nutrition at a discounted rate, and receive supplement discounts.
“I am delighted to say the IVF wasn't needed because within 3 months I was pregnant! I am sure the nutritional fine tuning had an important role to play in our success and importantly it also helped to feel that we were doing something different to help the process." — Kirsty & Jon, Surrey
Meet The Team
Registered Nutritional Therapist & Fertility Specialist
Hi, I’m Julia, a BANT Registered Nutritional Therapist specialising in fertility. I help couples struggling to conceive to realise their dream of having a family. Having gone through fertility struggles myself, I am passionate about supporting couples and women with their fertility and hormonal issues. I’ve been there, and I know what it feels like to struggle to achieve what you really want in life. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and suffered from amenorrhea (absent periods) for 7 years, which meant that we were unable to conceive naturally. After several rounds of fertility treatment and a miscarriage we were finally blessed with two boys, one via IUI and one via IVF. However, it was only after discovering that nutrition, lifestyle, and supplements could impact my health that to my amazement my periods returned. This inspired me to train as a registered nutritional therapist and to go on to help others struggling to conceive. One of the best things about my job is when I hear news from a client telling me they are pregnant; it shows the transformation that can happen when people make changes to their diet and lifestyle.
Maria McMaster Howells
Qualified Personal Trainer & Pre & Post Natal Trainer
Hello, my name is Maria, I am a qualified personal trainer and a pre and post natal trainer. I also have a BSc and a Masters degree in Psychology, a black belt in karate and have been on numerous sports teams in my life including touch rugby and cricket teams. I have a real interest in helping and supporting others; I love personal training and being active and also very much want to support those on their fertility journey, so I have combined both passions and now love training my Fitness Fertility clients. I have had my own fertility struggles, being diagnosed with PCOS after having years of anovulatory cycles, bad skin, migraines, pain and mood concerns. I am now lucky enough to have two beautiful sons after fertility treatment with clomid but unfortunately experienced pregnancy loss in between both pregnancies. I truly believe that one of the things that helped me prepare for treatment, both mentally and physically was being active. I ensured I was training in a way that was helpful for PCOS, kept my BMI within the healthy range and used my long runs and gym sessions to really work on my mental health. The fertility journey can be unbelievably stressful but for me, being active played a huge role in helping me through it. I am very excited to use what I know to help others grow their own family.
