After I finished my first ever blog I wondered how often bloggers blog, after all I didn't want to be boring but neither did I want this to be a one day wonder. A bit like trying to read a map I decided not to understand this and just ask! The answer was "whenever you feel like it" which explains why it is 10.20pm I should be in bed so that I don't look tired for my class tomorrow but I am writing my blog,I just feel like it.

No one wants their husband or partner to be right all the time but I have had to concede that when it comes to all things business, mine is annoyingly accurate. It will take up most of your time getting the message out there he told me, so I took on a part-time job. You will have to focus on one thing at a time, so I enrolled on a course. I gave up full-time work along with the cleaner and the gardener. 

I now regret giving up the latter two! The classes give me huge satisfaction and to see the energy that everyone puts in makes every ounce of effort worthwhile.I have listened to all the feedback and made adjustments for bad backs, poorly knees, high blood pressure and pregnancy so far. 

​There are ways around everything when you work and play together. We always do both.

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.​.
