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
Over the break you might be making a new year’s resolution to get fit and strong in 2020. Here is some inspiration from some of the women who trained with me over 2019. I asked them to let me know in a few words what they got out of Dellafit this year. Here is what they said:
ANNA – excellent primary school teacher and mum of 3 – “I’ve loved...Learn More

PAY ATTENTION This is my top tip. Think about what you are eating and drinking. I don’t mean you need to...Learn More
HOW CAN I MAKE SURE I DO WHAT I SAY I AM GOING TO DO?
For most of us it is easy (particularly if we are feeling very lazy after a huge meal) to say to yourself: “From today I am going to change the way I eat and train for the better.” It is much harder to summon the discipline required to stick to the plan for the long haul. Accountability to yourself or to others can...Learn More
1. You will be outside!
There is a lot of research to support the benefits of being outside for at least some part of the day. But you don’t need research to tell you that. There is something about being outside that makes everything (even exercise) better! I have vivid memories of being stressed out with a crying miserable baby but the minute I took them outside and lay them...Learn More
Earlier this month we heard the sad news that Max, the beautiful big standard poodle, beloved pet of Veronica (a long time member) had passed. Max had not been sick – his passing was very sudden.
The news was very sad because we all knew how much Max meant to Veronica. Max was a much loved pet. Veronica and her husband Dario and their two girls treated Max as though he was...Learn More
Here is a great workout you can do in 30 minutes with no special equipment. If you are not familiar with any of the exercises you can easily google them as I have used their most common names.
Before you start this workout do a dynamic warm up – about 5 minutes of moving stretches and maybe a short jog.
Set a timer to 45 seconds work and 15 seconds rest for 30 rounds.
Forget about “motivation”. Just do it because that is what you do.
You might have seen a series of posts I have done on instagram lately on the subject of consistency (see @dellafit.sydney).
