In this Q and A with myself I spill the beans on my life as a dance and dance fitness teacher. Get to know me a little better as I answer some personal questions and some frequently asked questions…
It’s amazing how quickly we adapt to being on holiday. We eat and drink what we want, how much we want and whenever we want! Working out tends to go out of the window unless you count lounging around by the pool as a workout!
Unfortunately, when we are back home it can feel like a real struggle to return to the normality of a sensible diet and regular exercise.
Getting back on track need not feel like a big upheaval though. Let’s face it, we’ve got enough to deal with in terms of unpacking, washing and the post-holiday blues!

Do you ever feel like exercise just isn’t for you? You might be thinking you’re not sporty enough, not fit enough or don’t look the part. Or you might simply be thinking that you’re just not that interested!

Life is too short to be counting calories when you’re on holiday. Your annual break away will most likely only account for 7-14 days out of the 365 in the year…so you shouldn’t feel guilty about having that big blow out meal when you’re on vacation! However you can still stay in shape on holiday and it might just be easier than you think… Read more

It can be super daunting starting a new fitness class, especially if you have fallen off the exercise wagon. You’re probably thinking, “Will I survive?” and envy the oh so confident teacher. Well this might surprise you, but your instructor is sometimes thinking, “Will I survive?!”

Plucking up the courage to go to a fitness class for the first time is not easy but doing the class doesn’t have to feel like hard work.
