Take Your Pick – Fitness – Weight Management – Personal Training

Get fitWhatever your health hopes for 2015 are, my hope is that you will find something here to help.  Whether it is Pilates style fitness classes, aerobic or tone that you want there is a variety to choose from.  Wouldn’t you rather control your weight through good nutrition rather than a restrictive or complicated diet?

Location, Location, Location!

Since my last blog Tessfit has moved to a brand new Studio at Steve’s Gym in Newton Abbot which is a great location and the owners Rick and Laura could not be more helpful. There is ample parking and a friendly welcome on arrival. I have introduced new classes and plan to expand even further in the next few months.

PilaTess Pilates

If you like the idea behind Pilates, long lean muscles, a toned body, good flexibility, balance and posture then this is worth trying. You will enjoy good music and some fun whilst working on the Pilates method. Already I am seeing improvements in client’s range of movement and adaptations that work to make this class suitable for all abilities and ages.

Nutrition and Weight Management

If you have a goal to change the way you feel about yourself it will nearly always be based on how you look. Small changes to your diet and daily routine can make a big difference to how healthy you are. The healthier you are the better you feel and so begins your journey to meet that goal.

Make sure your goal is S.M.A.R.T.

Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timescale

It is my job to guide you through this to ensure that mistakes are not made at the outset which can ruin the celebration of success that I look forward to so much!

Personal Training

Most personal training is carried out at a gym which is fine if you like going to the gym. If you are not a fan or time is short then the service I offer can overcome these hurdles. Very little space is needed to have a good work-out. One of the homes I visit has tables and toddlers in the same room but it all adds to the fun and challenges me to adapt the session.

This is my first blog on the new website and it has taken me hours! If anyone is a whizz at all the fiddly bits please contact me or the next one won’t be out for months!

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.​.
