Daisy the dog has joined the crew .
Earlier this year I finally relented to the kids’ pleas and we got a dog. A beautiful rescue puppy from Kempsey called Daisy. I drove a long way to pick her up from her country foster parents (which was a big deal for some one who is a self confessed bad driver). Border collies need a LOT of exercise so I was a little apprehensive about...Learn More
I am always being asked for advice by women about how to stop the feeling of being “bloated”. By “bloated” they mean that their abdomen in distended – it feels uncomfortable – like something is not quite right. That feeling when your waist band feels tight, your abdomen protrudes and you feel “fat”. It is not the way you want to feel. It...Learn More
We often tell our kids “Just try your best”. I recently tried something a second time because I was not completely satisfied with my efforts the first time.
Not surprisingly, my story comes from the world of Crossfit. Some of you may have heard of the world wide online competition “Crossfit Open”. Crossfit devotees all over the world compete every week...Learn More
I have recently qualified as a Level 1 Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition. What exactly is a nutrition coach and why might you need me?
The best way of explaining it is to think about the role of a sports coach. The coach is someone who knows the game well. They are usually knowledgeable about all aspects of the game and can give the players guidance on the rules. A...Learn More
You may have heard of HIIT. It has been around for a while now. There is a good reason why HIIT looks to be here to stay. It is not a passing fad. For women in their late 30s, 40s and beyond HIIT can be a powerful weapon in curbing weight gain that seems to happen around this time.
What is HIIT?
HIIT (high intensity interval training) is a type of training that...Learn More
LINDSEY’S HEALTH SCARE
Lindsey is one of our most loved Dellafit clients. She was actually at the first Dellafit session we ever had in mid 2013 and she is still with us! This is the story of how Lindsey beat high cholesterol through sheer determination.
In January 2018 Lindsey went for a routine visit to a new doctor who ordered a full blood test. The test revealed that Lindsey had very...Learn More
I stay away from the scales because in my 50 years I have wasted too many days walking around with a sad face because of a silly number I saw when I jumped on the scales in the morning.
Don’t get me wrong. I haven’t given up. I still care about maintaining a healthy body and not being too heavy so that I don’t put too much pressure on my joints. I just...Learn More
Being the “new girl” when you are starting a fitness program is not fun. It can be even worse when we feel vulnerable because we know we are not in good shape. We worry that the instructor will give the command and the whole group will go dashing off, leaving us gasping for breath and feeling embarressed about our lack of fitness.
Here is the thing – everyone had...Learn More
One of the best things I heard recently was an expert on habits explaining how to go about your first day at a new job or a new course of study (or something else that requires you to reset your routine). If you see training and nutrition as something you mean to continue even though you have a new job or a new routine then from DAY 1 you need to structure your day the way you wish to go on....Learn More
In July 2013 a small group of women joined Della in the park twice a week for some training sessions and “DellaFit” was born. Almost five years later DellaFit has grown to 8 sessions a week and we have a very large number of women who train with us on a regular basis, including some who have been with us the whole time. Apart from school holidays when we have a break, DellaFit...Learn More
