As part of our 2021 schedule we will be offering yin yoga on a Thursday morning. I am so excited to be able to offer this wonderful weekly experience to our members.
What exactly is yin yoga?
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced, therapeutic style of yoga. You will not be doing a plank or a warrior pose or saluting the sun. Most of the time you will be sitting or lying down. Taking up a...Learn More
Have you ever eaten too much and then imposed exercise as punishment? So you ate a whole family size pizza. Feeling disgusted with yourself, you vow to do a punishing workout to make up for it. Or it might that you promise to get up early and go for a long run after too many late night chocolates. I know women who are trapped in a cycle of having to go on long runs every day because...Learn More
We all want to kick up our heels (if we can remember where we put them) this year in particular. The silly season is upon us and I feel like a party (with 20 people) more than ever!
What I do not feel like though is gaining any more weight. Getting through covid, banana bread, sourdough, baking and all that staying home and coming out the other end – there has been quite...Learn More
I am in the business of building self esteem. Many of our clients go from being women who are worried about “not being fit enough” to being satisfied and happy and slightly proud of themselves. So in addition to keeping weight in check, bones healthy and improving their cardio vascular health, most women in our group are building their self esteem and experiencing feelings...Learn More
This looks like a good plan
Do you do much planning when it comes to training and nutrition? Even if you do some planning do you find yourself starting off with good intentions but somehow not following through? Do other things get in the way?
For example, you have a regular training time which is great as you are unlikely to schedule other things in this time. Sometimes, however...Learn More

Monica says ” I started these classes to get fitter while working from home. ...Learn More
You know that slump you feel when you take a break and do nothing? It’s like the less you do the less you feel like doing. Your energy levels actually go down. You feel lethargic and unsatisfied and unproductive. This might be ok for a couple of days but I do not like feeling like this for a week or more, particularly when I might be eating and drinking more on my holiday which...Learn More
Two years after Anna had her third child, she started looking for a way to get fit. She knew it was about time that she established a good routine to keep her feeling her best. Anna liked the idea of training in a park outside.
She tried out a few different trainers and “bootcamps” but she did not have a good experience. Unfortunately, the young male trainers did...Learn More
As a menopausal or peri- menopausal woman do you notice that you have less muscle tone than you had when you were younger? You are not imagining it. A decrease in muscle mass as we women get older is linked to the decline in estrogen in our bodies. It is also the reason we seem to gain weight more easily – our body composition has changed. Less muscle means we need less...Learn More
Kaz was one of the brave ones who tried less sugar for August
Just before the month of August started (which seems like a long time ago now – why are the months so long this year?) a group of the Dellafit women decided to try to reduce our sugar intake during August. Our reasons for doing this varied but for most of us when we thought about it we had started to consume more sugar...Learn More
