Has Katie Hopkins gone soft?

Katie Hopkins – you know her don’t you? She’s the woman from The Apprentice who is now famed for her ‘acid tongue’, having a go at all in her path.

Why not join likeminded women to get fit?

I’m sure you know by now that I’m a Personal and Group Fitness Trainer – I hope so anyway! However, I’m not your normal trainer, which is why I don’t try to sell you stuff all of the time or instruct you to come to my bootcamp (I don’t run bootcamps by the way!) or […]

Never ask a woman her age!!

It’s a sensitive subject but it’s something that all of us have to deal with. Even as I write this, I’ve aged a little! It’s so true what my mother told me when I was a child. She said “Once you hit 18, time will fly.” Wow, she was spot on. I’m 47 now and […]

I know you and I know that if I said to you, “I can give you the secret so that you will get 20 benefits to your health”, you would sit up and listen (see what I did there – sit up!). [Disclaimer: I do not endorse doing sit ups!!] I mean, 20 health benefits? […]

You probably WON’T sign up – here’s why…

Experience tells me that you probably won’t do a lot of things in life – you know, the things that are on your ‘to-do’ list. The things you had in your head last December when you made your 2014 Resolutions. The things you wrote down in your notebook or on that piece of A4 paper. […]

Have you ever seen a monkey ill?

When I was a child, maybe 4 or 5, my parents took me to a zoo. Well, I sort of recall it but it’s a long time ago now! At that age, your first visit to a zoo was so exciting. I mean, I saw pictures of animals in books, some even in pop-up books, […]

With your permission, I’d like to tell you about my plans…

I’m changing the way I run my business. Phew, got that statement out quickly! There comes a time when you just have to review what you do and come up with new plans – both for the sake of the business owner (me) and (more importantly) the customer. There’s no doubt that I need to […]

I’m starting my diet tomorrow…are you?

“Hi, how are you?” “Oh, not so good. I’ve put on a couple of stone since I saw you last and I feel tired and fed up.” “Ah, I’m sure you’ll be fine. I had the same problem but just this last week, I’ve lost 6 lbs!” “Wow, 6 lbs, how did you do that?” […]

Healthy salads are just not rock ‘n’ roll! Try these instead…

Healthy eating doesn’t mean boring eating. You don’t have to reach for the tomato and lettuce every time you want a healthy snack! It seems that when you’re on a diet, you’re scared to eat fat so always go for the ‘low-fat’ items on the supermarket shelves. You’re also scared to eat carbs so always […]
