The Return of No More Mrs Fatty McFat

It’s time for the honest return of No More Mrs Fatty McFat. Well the business is wrapping up and this blog will be duplicated on the website which I spent much of Monday morning turning into a personal website and away from being a business thing. So it’s September 2018…wow the time is moving so […]

We’re closing…

I have some sad news about Kirby’s. As of Sunday 30th Sept, the studio will close its doors for good. Alas, even with the constant bombardment of information from the NHS and news sources about how we need to take greater care of our health, there is not enough demand to warrant keeping the studio […]

It’s been a while…

Well, I’ve kind of let this blog just slip away into nothing of late. No real reason for it other than other things taking priority. The bulk of information we now share seems to come via Instagram and Facebook, so I tend to find I’m posting more to those mediums than utilising this blog. With […]

I have a confession to make….

I haven’t been on my game, food or exercise wise since middle of July. I have come up with excuses. I have ventured half hearted into my programmes and allowed my head to get between me and my goal. I have lifted and lifted heavy but skipped certain things I should do on my programme […]

My Personal Results

    For the past eight weeks, I have embarked on an eating plan designed by StrongFirst Master Instructor, Fabio Zonin.  Fabio is a highly decorated natural bodybuilder, strength and conditioning coach and has one hell of a singing voice. The plan is heavily protein based, and reduces carbohydrates to basically veg with allowances on […]

I finally love me

I know what you are thinking when reading that line, ‘Oh how self indulgent and up her own arse” but seriously, if you’re a regular reader of these blogs you’ll know that well I’ve lived the best part of 40 years loathing myself, so bear with me while I explain that headline. It’s also completely […]

Starting things right

I have been asked over the last few weeks, ‘Why do I have to attend the beginners course for your club, when I’ve done kettlebells elsewhere?’ and it’s a very valid question. At Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness, and Port Talbot Kettlebell Club we use the StrongFirst method of, what is known as, Hardstyle kettlebell […]

How much?!?

  Hi I’m Krissie and I’m a PT.   The exclamation I hear most when I give my pricing to prospective students here at Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness ….HOW MUCH?!? Last year I wrote a blog piece with the aid of my friend Jill, who had written something similar, but I feel I need to write again […]

Free From…not quite!

A long overdue update for the ‘No More Mrs Fatty McFat‘ portion of the Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness blog. This section is Krissie’s musings on her personal journey. Last October I suffered what I can only describe as a power loss in my legs. It was the most weird, frustrating and devastating feeling I’ve […]

We are only human…

It’s happened again. It seems to be a perennial problem with me. I get so engrossed in the back room stuff here at Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness as well as still figuring out everything that is not right with my ongoing knee issue, and before I know it I’m heavier than I have been in […]
