Adaptable Fun Fitness

Had I not mentioned the Indian summer we would not have had one, so you have me to thank that the last two weeks have been lovely! I even went back to Polzeath yesterday for a last bit of body boarding before my wetsuit retires to the loft.

​Thank you to everyone who completed forms for the Body Logic class for Men. Most of you will now be thrilled to know that classes start on Thursday 18th September, those whose wives filled in their forms may not be so excited! However, now is not the time to have second thoughts but the time to focus on the benefits of attending such a class. You may think it is too late to apply the LOGIC (look good in clothes) to your life, or that it only applies to women. Think again, come to the class and all will become clear.

It has been an interesting summer for me and those who are connected to my life in one way or another. Family have seen more of me in the last few months than they did in the whole of 2013. Relationships with friends have changed, become stronger, maybe reignited, and having known some for many years only now am I really getting to ‘know’ them. It is wonderful and humbling at the same time. How little time must I have given…..?

​Classes are getting busier and the diversity of clients more varied. This is very satisfying to see as the Body Logic ethos behind the way I structure the classes seems to be far more adaptable than I first thought possible. These comments were made by a lady who would have considered herself quite disabled by an accident last year and unable to take exercise in any true form.

“I was so impressed today with your class. It was so casually professional you have got it just right. It seems you are doing what comes into your head but it all fits into the music and is exactly the right length for your standard of clients and is so cleverly choreographed that you never feel the exercises are boring.”

These comment made my day!

As tans fade our thoughts turn to Christmas, well mine do as I get very excited about the festive season, it can’t come soon enough for me! No Christmas humbugs allowed would be my motto. Another thing to take your mind off dark nights will be music, I would like to start receiving requests. Any song that you think would be fun to have in class I can work with so get your ipods out and share your favourites with us all.

​That’s it for now as I have classes to prepare, stay in touch

About the Author

I have been involved in fitness all my life but never been hugely competitive. Entering the world of fitness instructor, personal trainer and nutrition advisor, I leant how simple it is to stay in shape without becoming a gym fanatic or elite athlete. I am neither, by the way!

So after 17 years of managing the swimming school and taking rowing classes at Newton Abbot Leisure Centre, I decided it was time to do something that would give me a different type of job satisfaction. Offering a service that directly influences someone’s wellbeing, seemed a good choice.

So, I studied the mechanics of exercise versus body shape and began to understand why so many people who have exercise routines that sometimes seem excessive, never see the changes they are hoping for. This led me to I set up Tessfit which tackles this conundrum. It is a real mix and match offering between nutrition and weight management advice, fitness classes and personal training. A combination which is proving to be highly successful for everyone involved.

I now work from home and run my classes and indoor Personal Training sessions at Venture Fitness in Newton Abbot. It is a great balance and not only do I love my work, I also get to spend more time with my family which is invaluable.​.
