Just want to tell you about a great program we have coming up to make sure you look and feel your best this summer. It’s a 7 week program which will run from 16 October through to 4 December. You will aim to train 3 times a week (although you can train as much as you like). You will be focusing each week on a different aspect of nutrition, building on what you achieved the...Learn More
When looking after other people is something you do every day sometimes it’s easier to forget about looking after yourself. Looking after yourself can actually end up adding to the overall work load and make you feel stressed.
Here is an example – when I attend an evening training session I have to move quickly to organise an early dinner for the family. If this is not going to...Learn More
“It’s too hard for me to get out of my warm cosy bed and go out into the cold dark morning for training in the park. It’s easier to just stay in bed, get up late, wear some loose comfy warm clothing and spend the day keeping warm in front of the heater eating comfort food. Sure I may put on a bit of weight but I can go on a crash diet and lose weight in the spring.”...Learn More
“Let’s enter the Mother’s Day Classic – it’s a 4km run on Mother’s Day” I messaged the group some time in April. It was time for some of the members of the group to prove to themselves that they were now fit.
I was met with a few replies to the effect of “I can’t do that! That is too far for me. I haven’t trained – I...Learn More
Many of you will have already read about Mirren in a previous blog entry. Inspired by her success, Mirren decided to embark on another 7 week “fit and strong” program where she would pay attention to her nutrition and train consistently at least 3 times a week.
Mirren’s hard work (training outdoors at least 3 times a week together with swimming and yoga) paid off. Her...Learn More
People sometimes ask me how I stay motivated to train. I tell them that I am not particularly motivated. I prefer to see myself as consistent.
For me training is not optional. It’s not something I do when I feel motivated. The best way to illustrate this is to ask you what motivates you to clean your teeth. Most people do not have to be motivated to clean their teeth. It is just...Learn More
Meet Mirren before and after her 7 week Fit and Strong program at Dellafit.
Even more awe inspiring are her fitness test results 7 weeks apart. She shaved 40 seconds off her run time (over 3 minutes down to 2 minutes and 20 seconds) and went from doing 12 burpees in a minute to doing 19. At the start Mirren could do 12 push ups on her knees in 30 seconds and by the end she was up to 18...Learn More

When I started running training sessions in the park in 2013 some people expressed surprise when I told them that Meredith Phelps was one of my regulars. “Oh but she is already so fit!” “Are you sure the sessions are hard enough for her?” “She already does all that running” ….were some of the comments. It’s true Meredith was already very fit...Learn More
I have always struggled with “self help” stuff. At various times in my life I have had tastes of it – team building weekends as a lawyer where we were prompted to do self reflective exercises, school retreats, aspects of training to become a telephone counsellor, even sessions during my personal training course. I have trouble coming up with “goals” and putting...Learn More
