About me

Occupation Joy in Fitness Coach, Personal Trainer, Lover of Sparkle & Mum of Four
Location Ireland
Introduction Hannah Lilly is the owner of Hannah Lilly Fitness and a Mum of four. Qualifying as a Personal Trainer in 2013 led to the launch of the hugely successful Absolute Beginners Run Club stemming from her desire to create a non-competitive environment where everyone could be themselves without any fear of being judged. But it hasn’t all been positive and after training to compete as a bikini competitor in 2014 Hannah Lilly had a mental breakdown while struggling to come to terms with the fact that her disordered eating habits, obsession with fitness and achieving the “perfect” physique were ultimately damaging her relationships - with her children, herself - and her quality of life. It was from these struggles with anxiety, low self-esteem and more recently post-natal depression after the births of her last two children that The Joy Project was born. She created the Positive Exchange, which included following daily habits such as gratitude and kindness. Hannah credits the Joy Project and her now healthy dose of exercise with changing her life completely for the better – hence the creation of Joy in Fitness a brilliant mix of the two.
