Welcome to my World…

I’m Maria Rushe; writer, Fitness Instructor and Educator. I’m a Mum of two busy girls and have been sharing the balancing act that is my life on my award winning blog for the past 6 years.

My tagline has always been “Being Mammy, Being Me”, and as my kids are growing up, it’s time for my website to move on too.

I’m more than just a parenting blogger.

As well as being a writer, I run Rushe Fitness in Letterkenny with my husband, Emmet.

As a fitness professional and Strong Nation Instructor, I am here to help other mums enjoy exercise, whether you join our state of the art private training facility in Letterkenny, or our brilliant ONLINE programme, Rushe Fitness LIVE. You won’t find any false promises or quick fixes, but you will find a supportive fitness community to guide you to what you want to achieve.

I’m also a full time Secondary School Teacher with 20 years of classroom experience and in my spare time, I am honoured to act as Director of Letterkenny Musical Society.

My original Blog, The S-Mum Blog, is still here in all its award winning glory. Just click the tab to access over 6 years worth of parenting reality.

If you’re interested in Business Me, hit the Fitness tab to learn more about our family run business, Rushe Fitness, which is based both in Letterkenny AND online.

For my other writing, hit the Writer tab. You’ll find poetry and articles that are not just about parenting. I also have information about my fictional WIPs here.

To see how and where I’ve featured in local and national media over the years, hit that tab.

I hope you enjoy my words.
