Too Much Passion?

Do you think that we can have too much passion?  Care too much? I’m going to hold my hands up here and say that I have a lot passion for many things and at times I think (know) that some people find my passion overwhelming.

I sometimes have to back off when I sense people are closing their ears and hearts to the message; this leaves me frustrated and quite discombobulated, which of course is my problem – this is when caring for others and about things becomes detrimental to me.

So what am I passionate about? I bet you can guess some things- animal welfare (which includes over vaccinating pets, weeks of fireworks, animal testing, hunting etc.), the environment (de forestation, plastics, pollution) farming methods and food quality (cruelty and lack of) lack of honesty, loyalty, excessive vanity, more kindness- oh goodness the list goes on – and of course the things you know about, our (yours and mine) mental and physical fitness, health and happiness. I have been blessed with the energy and opportunity to learn lots about our health and fitness and armed with this knowledge I want to help every one to understand and do what they can to become and stay as healthy and fit as they have the potential to be, (and for them to be able to help their friends and loved ones be the same).

It hurts when some people question my intention and purpose or my knowledge when it contradicts something they read in a magazine, social media or watched on the telly!

I care about these things because I’ve learned that they matter and make a difference. I’m committed to and passionate about helping people (especially my DYBO fitness family, blood family and friends) be the healthiest and best they can be! My mission statement is…

‘Helping people reach for their mental physical and professional potential’

Amongst our DYBO family there are those who have passion too, many have their own business and dedicate themselves to their products services and customers. I want to support our friends in business so I’m opening our weekly Catch Up to tell our fellow DYBO crew about what our small business members do in this build up to Christmas. When we shop in small businesses and local we really invest in our local community and its survival.


I will start and hope you will join in!

I offer a broad variety of bespoke effective and fun group exercise classes, courses and special events known as ‘Independance’ days. In my private gym we provide one to one services offering personal fitness and health training and guidance, weight management and gut health, life coaching and NLP, massage therapy, ultra sound, pre and rehabilitation exercise prescription for everyone.

I can provide vouchers for all of our services be that courses, vouchers or one-off appointments, small equipment and supplements.

Here is a special offer from DYBO family member, Emma…

  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until eggs are set and slightly golden around the edges. A knife inserted into the center should come out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm.

As a keen club runner I had become frustrated at a number of recurring running injuries. After seeing a variety of different physios and chiropractors, with varying degrees of success but no complete solution, I was recommended to Helen. Helen took a different approach to other practitioners, looking at the whole body structure, core strength and flexibility and initially recommending a programme based around my basic posture, rather than the actual location of the pain. Following the exercises and programmes recommended by Helen I have managed to stay injury free for over 18 months, and am able to train at increasing levels of intensity. Thank you!
