Over the last 8 years I have trained hundreds of women and I have noticed that there are a few main “attitudes” to exercise that really affect how often and how much effort women put into their training. This is turn affects how much they benefit from the exercise in terms of well being and health. The ideal is someone who thinks this way:

Many of you will be familiar with Davorka who started at Dellafit’s fitness classes for women at Rushcutters Bay shortly after we were allowed back in the park last year.
Davorka was very nervous about starting with us as it had been a while since she had done much training. But she fronted up and then kept turning up. Strength and fitness, boxing and yin yoga – Davorka...Learn More
You know that feeling when it just seems like everything is too much? So much going on – how will you go forward? That feeling of overwhelm which can seem particularly bad in the middle of the night? Our “fight or flight” system is on full and it starts to affect how we react to things that happen or how we treat those we love.
I sometimes struggle with that feeling of pressure...Learn More
My neighbour texted me that she had gone away but had not cancelled her food delivery service and would I like it? I jumped at the chance because I have always wondered about what these services are like. Would they be useful for some of the women who attend Dellafit to get on track with their nutrition? Or could they save me a lot of time and energy every now and then?
Water! It is vital to our health and well being and many of us don’t drink enough. You get about 20 per cent of the water you need from your food. The rest comes through what you drink and water itself is the BEST drink.In the first week of the Dellafit 8 week “best body ever challenge” we are all aiming to drink at least 2 litres of water a day.Benefits of drinking water:✅water carries...Learn More
Women often tell me that they are worried about not being “fit enough” to do our classes. I tell them that the reason you would come in the first place is to get fit. We do not assume that you are fit and all classes are structured to be challenging for ALL levels.

I am so excited to be running another challenge. It has been a while. I am determined that we are not going to lose our mojo as winter approaches. I am also keen for some new women to use the Challenge as a way of getting started with us.
What will the Challenge involve?
It will involve training at least 3 times a week at times that suit you. We will also have a focus for our...Learn More
Boxing has really packed a punch at Dellafit. It has been a big hit. It has knocked everyone out of the park with how popular it is.
By popular demand boxing will be TWICE A WEEK from term 2. Every Tuesday and Friday at 6.45am. So if you love boxing you will have 2 exciting mornings a week to look forward to.
What do we love about boxing?
Boxing uses the anaerobic system (70...Learn More
Davorka has been coming to Dellafit now for about 7 weeks. I thought it might be interesting for you to find out about what motivated her to join and how she experienced joining up and what she thinks of her new routine at Dellafit.
On my part I have seen Davorka go from being quite nervous and a bit down on herself to being much more confident and happy about how she is going. I...Learn More
These days we are all becoming a lot more aware of the way that hormone levels might affect the way that we feel. The hormone associated with stress is called cortisol.
We have cortisol for a good reason. It signals to our body that we need to eat more following a stressful situation. When we turn on a “fight or flight” response we use up more energy. Our body is telling...Learn More
