I now Feel I Can Tackle Anything

I now Feel I Can Tackle Anything

I was born with CHD (shallow hip sockets) after many pelvic/hip/spine operations I have always been wary of any exercise. I joined TessFit last year in the Young at Heart classes which I absolutely love. (I am now doing Pilates 5 days a week by renting the Tessfit videos) My mobility has improved a great deal which has made my mind set 100% to tackle anything, in fact yesterday I had to climb through kitchen window because kitchen door handle had broken no way could I have done that before! I’ll admit I was a little scared at the start but Tess has encouraged me and given me tips on certain movements that my joints can’t do, its lovely when someone gives you belief in yourself. 🙂

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.​.
