I can’t think of a better time to start my blog. An aspiring writer I am not but to share my humorous and sometimes muddled outlook on life seems only fair. It would be boring to waste time explaining why at 49 I have launched into a whole new chapter of my life but suffice it to say, I intend to enjoy every minute!

Fitness has always been “my thing” but now I am a qualified fitness instructor I understand how many hours I wasted in the gym and at classes I was just no good at. I am good at Body Logic classes because I design them, everyone will be good at them and many will become excellent, I don’t do ‘too hard!’

I recently read that the definition of failure is to try and please everyone so forgive me if I don’t. I have declared myself allergic to stress so it confused me that I should be spending sleepless nights worrying about my excellent new life choices. My drive to work with people and spread a little happiness in the process is the only explanation I can find.

​My husband thinks I should have a slightly more serious business plan!Body Logic classes are now underway, the feedback has been amazing and I am sleeping like a baby.

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.​.
