Hi, so pleased you could join me!
My name is Penny and I’m a wellness entrepreneur and business owner: director of Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat and founder of MADE, a 360 degree wellness brand with on demand wellness membership and a wellness centre on site at Moddershall Oaks. I live in Staffordshire with my wonderful husband, Andy, owner of Guerrilla Training, our gorgeous little boy, Teddy and our furry, floppy eared baby, Bugsy Beagle.
As an animal lover, I’m also a long time veggie and currently taking online courses in nutrition, mindfulness and children’s mental health. The workaholic in me never wants to stop learning nor achieving. I’m told I can be quite a whirlwind at times, constantly pushing boundaries both for me and everyone around me!
My view on wellness is that it takes just one small step to change your life for the better. I never used to be healthy, far from it. I had a very unhealthy relationship with food which had many negative effects including tiredness, bloating, bad skin and awful stomach cramps which at one point I was hospitalised for. I was also diagnosed with asthma at a very young age and in my twenties it was diagnosed as chronic, resulting in a collapsed lung! It was incredibly scary to be totally out of breath whilst lying down and a huge wake-up call for me, I was terrified! It took me weeks to recover but that’s when I knew I had to change the way I was living and improve my wellbeing. More recently my struggle with my mental health has come to the surface since having Ted so I am championing selfcare and encouraging others to do the same.
I started MadebyPenny because I wanted to share my wellbeing journey. I’ve gathered together so much knowledge about nutrition, fitness and relaxation that could benefit a great many more people, not just our wonderful clients that come to our spa and wellbeing centre but wherever you are. So please join me in and start feeling a whole lot healthier and happier today.
