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
I am passionate about trying to spread the bug…the exercise bug. One of my clients recently confessed that she had it and how she felt funny when she skipped a session. Now she has got the bug training has become something that she places a very high value on. This means that she:
makes time for it (by scheduling it in the same way as she would an important meeting);
moves heaven...Learn More
Over the past 4 weeks I competed in an online competition for Masters Crossfit athletes. I am in the group for intermediate women aged 40 to 49. Every week the workout would be published and competitors would have one week to do the workout and submit their scores. I was not very happy when the third workout came out as it seemed to include a lot of “rope climbs” – 24 in...Learn More
I am excited as I write this, having just returned home from fitness testing with some of the women who completed the 6 week special program to improve their fitness. We had some spectacular results. But first I will take you back to where it all began….
Earlier this year in late February as part of the fitness testing for the special 6 week program I asked the women who had signed up...Learn More
I approached my first class with a healthy dose of nerves – I can’t remember the last time I did any cardio other than walking, which, judging my spreading waistline, was not really doing the trick anymore. “It won’t,” Della informed me, as we watched our kids’ swimming lessons. “You’re over 40 now.”
Ouch. I found it easy to get a carpark at Rushcutters after dropping the kids at school and...Learn More
Some lucky people feel good during their exercise session. You can see it on their faces – they are loving that feeling of being pushed to do their best. They seem to be on a little mini “high”. Often with outdoor exercise it’s being outside with nature around you in the fresh air – free and not all hemmed in.
But not everyone can relate to this.
However, just...Learn More
Towards the end of last year we ran a “New You” program and we had some amazing results (see the Tale of 2 Sisters on this blog).
Ever since we ran the program I have had people asking me when I will be running my next program because they want to commit to getting fit and changing some of their habits within a defined time, with measurable results. They like the...Learn More
