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
Veronica was a frequent gym user before she had children but once she had babies she found it hard to get motivated. She was naturally tall and slim but she knew as she approached her mid 40s that she needed to do strength work to maintain her muscle tone. A friend from her mother’s group (yes one of those mothers groups that existed for years after the babies were little) suggested...Learn More
Simone is a very busy woman. I don’t call someone “busy” very lightly. But Simone IS busy. She has a career in law with demanding clients in different time zones. She has 2 teenage children and a preschooler. She also moonlights on the radio with her own “What’s On” segment which means that she has to go out to see a lot of performances and meet up...Learn More
It seems to be a badge of honour during this strange time to “get stuff done”. The reality for some strange reason is that even with good intentions we are getting less done than ever.
My daughter read me a message from a Uni friend who quickly relocated to Northern NSW once Uni went online. “How have your quarantined days been looking like?” the message...Learn More
One of my clients was telling me how much work she had to get through that day. She wondered why she had chosen to spend one hour of her precious time at the park doing physical exercise when this would reduce her time to complete her work. I was able to comfort her by reminding her of the cognitive benefits she would experience (better focus and retention) following her regularly...Learn More
This Friday is International Women’s Day. YAY.
At Dellafit we believe that in most respects training for women is really no different that training for men. We do not give women light weights and less strenuous workouts because they are women.
We are aware though, that there are a few things that might have an impact on women’s training which do not affect men...Learn More
Resistance training has so many benefits particularly for women who are 40 and beyond. I am always going on about this to anyone who will listen. The reason it is so dear to my heart is because it actually does work. It plays a key role in assisting you to avoid the slow and stealthy weight gain which is almost inevitable post 40. This is good news for anyone that enjoys eating food and...Learn More
