Tiffiny Hall reveals her husband Ed Kavalee and her parents were forced to stage an intervention following the birth of her son


Tiffiny Hall has revealed her parents and comedian husband Ed Kavalee were forced to stage an intervention after she completely ‘burned out’ following the birth of her son Arnold in 2017.

She told the Ash London podcast on Tuesday that she was filming around 40 to 50 workout videos just six months after welcoming her son, all while struggling with undiagnosed health conditions. 

‘I really thought I could do it all, even when I was six months in a post-partum body. I was filming 40, 50 workout videos a day,’ the fitness queen said.

Tough times: Tiffiny Hall has revealed her parents and comedian husband Ed Kavalee were forced to stage an intervention after she completely ‘burned out’ following the birth of her son Arnold in 2017

Tiffiny said her mother would bring Arnold to her exercise video shoots and only then she would give herself a break to breastfeed him and to drink water, before going straight back to filming.

The fitness buff became so severely burned out with work and running her fitness app that she couldn’t get out of bed and was felt unwell for weeks. 

At that point her mother moved in with her and Ed to help manage their household and take care of Arnold. 

The former Biggest Loser coach revealed her Taekwondo trainer parents, Jeanette and Martin, and husband Ed then staged an intervention.

‘It was Ed and my parents coming over and saying, “There is no business if there is no Tiffiny”,’ she recalled.

‘When they said “You’re not mothering … [Tiff’s] Mum is mothering my child, the grandparents” … there’s nothing else that matters in this world,’ she added.

Thankfully, Tiffiny received a diagnosis for her health issues earlier this year – two genetic blood pressure conditions known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME and POTS.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) is a disease characterised by extreme exhaustion, sleep abnormalities and, in some cases, pain.

POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) is an illness that affects the flow of blood to the top of the body, with symptoms including lightheadedness, fainting and rapid heartbeat. 

This has seen her go from training most days of the week to just 10 minutes of training per day, which has been a huge change for the fitness buff.

Back in April she wrote on Instagram: ‘For some time now I’ve been battling a little with my health. A lot actually.’ 

Tiffiny admitted she’s struggled to accept her condition, and has ‘felt like she’s hit rock bottom at times’. 

‘While I’m staying positive, recovery is tough and will mean taking a break for a little while to get well again,’ she continued. 

‘This is one of the hardest decisions, but I have to practise what I teach. For now, I’m prioritising recovery and family, and hopefully will be back in no time.’
