Have you ever struggled to make sense of the purpose of your life or felt at a standstill when asked what your goals are? Ever feel like it’s all speeding by and you’re not really sure how to get off the treadmill? Do you need inspiring as to where you’re heading? (ins...

Gym & Tonic seems to cater for everyone which is really pleasing to me! We have quite a few lads coming in very early, my morning classes attracting mostly ladies of 40 plus, the evening classes same again, with younger clients sprinkled in, and during the day all sort...

 July already!? I PRAY the weather has improved as my birthday is imminent! (57). That’s really got me thinking. (You do think more ahead as you get older, as there is less of it!) Since the last blog, I’ve held the Embodied Yoga Principles (EYP) Workshop and it was a...

If every gym client stayed I’d have over 1400 in by now. That...

We often hear about ‘balance’, and ‘moderation’. It’s a good call. ‘A little of what you fancy’ really does do you good (because if we didn’t factor in some good times, we’d never stick to ‘the cause’, and life would be dull, dull, dull!). But where to draw the line? W...

I've got your back!

Hot on the heels of a recent blog (Optimal nutrition and training for the 3 phases of menopause’, which, judging by the many requests for my handout was thoroughly needed!)... I’d like to follow this with one on bone health and Osteoporosis (O.P)......
