Back from holiday and horrified to notice that the summer ended while I was away! Anyone who has seen the Milos album that we posted on fb will know what kind of holiday we had and it really was as good as it looks.

Refreshed and ready for skipping ropes, the classes began again. Various people have had the cheek to go away on holiday, however that has allowed some others to get special attention whether they wanted it or not! There has been some showing off with heavier weights and skipping backwards, I have been impressed and a little envious at times. This is a good thing.

Thank you to everyone who sent me their thoughts on the regularity of changes that would be appropriate. The most important thing I learnt was that you will let me know if I get it wrong.

One of my children is off to Australia for 6 months next week and you might be wondering what that has to do with anything, I will explain. My lovely mum once told me that the best parents give their children roots but also give them wings. I have always believed that, but sometimes, just sometimes I wish it was ok to clip those wings and still be a good parent! So leaving those selfish thoughts behind I will be throwing myself into Body Logic classes, Body Logic nutrition & weight management and all things Body Logic! My attention will not waver from bringing smiles to faces, energy to weary bodies and a general feel good factor about everything I do. Simple!

Look out for what I am going to be offering regarding nutrition advice, I will put details on the website and there is going to be an advert going up in the leisure centre. I find this subject fascinating and recently saw a ‘funny’ which showed a lady standing at her fridge which was packed with a terrible balance of food and the caption read “Getting it wrong since 1965!” which was the year I was born, I have taken that as a sign.

Men’s classes are under construction. Active Devon have offered me funding for this new initiative, did no one ever think that men might enjoy a class designed just for them?! Anyway I need to show that there is a demand out there so forms have to be filled in. No commitment – just an interest to be shown. Get in touch if you are male or know of one that might be happy to give it a go, as always I promise it will be fun!

​Remember to join in on any subject that I have rambled on about, I always like a good chat.

I hear the weather is going to cheer up and guess what, an Indian summer is on its way for the 10th year running, and this time it might actually arrive. I hope so.

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.​.
