Funny how our kids/dogs/cats can teach us things isn’t it ?

I adore my Sunday Morning walks/runs with the dogs. Yes I love the exercise, the fresh air, being out in nature, laughing at the funny things that my dogs do and watching them simply be dogs and have fun. One of the biggest gifts I enjoy is the stimulation I experience for creative thinking. My…

It’s so good to be back to class and the energy, effort and enthusiasm was fantastic in all the classes as well as with our one to one work too. The sense of fresh starts, rejuvenation and renewed focus is palpable! How did you get on with last week’s Coffee Break Catch Up challenge, which…

Getting balance back into our lives…

Hey look at the date – it’s all 1’s and 5’s, I like the balance of it. Maybe it’s a good luck sign for getting balance back into our lives after the excesses of the festive season. Now don’t misunderstand me, I love the tasty food, drink and lots of Christmas telly; it helps re-dress…

Keeping It Brief…!

Good Morning! So it’s that weird time between Christmas and the New Year – some of us are back to work and others are enjoying the extended break. Here at HQ, I’ve enjoyed a couple of days off with good food, company and chillaxing. Enough of that thanks – I’m now beavering away on next…

Summer’s On Its Way!!!

Yesterday was Winter Solstice and from today, the days are getting longer and the nights shorter. It’s said – by many a coach – that Summer performances are built in the Winter and the same is true for our figures. What we do (food and exercise wise) in the Winter is what gives us the…

Only one more sleep to the Party Of The Year!

Only one more sleep to the party of the year and I’m sooooo excited to be sharing the decorations, food, music (Steve is DJ’ing as usual) and choreography but most especially, your company! As you know, the theme is Motown 70’s Disco (with a bit of glam rock if you like). Flares, afro’s, glitter (leave…

Keep Calm And Carry On!

It seems that Christmas is a time of stress, worry and exhaustion rather than goodwill to all men? Black Friday appears to have started a panic in people to find the biggest bargain/spend shed loads of money! Seemingly, folks MUST have that huge TV, games console, and so on before Christmas and it’s worth losing…

Only 24 sleeps till Christmas!!!!

Pinch Punch!! Oh my word, the first of December, now I’m ready to start thinking about Christmas! Actually I’ve been planning next year’s classes, courses and teacher training for quite some time. I’m certain I’m not alone when it comes to having to plan so far ahead but I think the downside is that we…

I suggest that you keep moving to keep warm; it’s better for your back, energy levels and mood too! There are lots of sniffles and colds around so try having a hot water, lemon and Manuka honey drink in the morning, wrap up warmly, drink hot soups at lunchtime and exercise daily to boost immunity.…

“Good Morning, Good Morrrrning”

Good morning, it’s dark and gloomy but for some reason I’m up and at ‘em today – already inspired and productive, such a fab feeling. I’ll keep it brief today (we are all so busy). I have lots of news including class schedule changes, Christmas party, and timetable, details of new classes and a healthy…

I have been training with Helen, twice a week, for 9 years, which I think tells you all you need to know. In addition to personal training, I have worked through the NLP process with Helen and experienced her ability with hypnotherapy. Whatever we do, Helen is always aware of the big picture and adjusts the programme accordingly, taking a holistic view of all my needs, whether or not I am aware of them! I would unreservedly recommend Helen to anyone, regardless of age, level of fitness or experience of exercise. If life coaching or NLP are required, she is highly-qualified, supportive and encouraging, a perfect guide through what are very beneficial but not always easy processes. Helen is discreet, completely trustworthy and a consummate professional.
