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 […]


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 […]

Personal Training Port Talbot

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 […]


A Decade On

Ten years ago at 6:45 this morning, I was sat on the floor of the bathroom punching myself full force in my over sized stomach, thumping lumps out of my huge thighs and screaming about how worthless and ugly I was, much to the worry of my poor husband. I had gotten up, full of […]

A Renewed Mission 1

This last weekend, while I was at a conference, I was encouraged to look at the statistics of the demography of the area my business, Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness Port Talbot, is in.  Statistics from the census etc, give us a great insight in to lots of different things in the area where we live […]

We never stop learning

It is true that we cease our formal education in school, and that University is so much more than just your degree, but even when you leave the comfy confines of the ‘establishment’, you never cease to learn. No matter how knowledgeable you think you are, there is always something new, some new way of […]


No More Mrs Fatty McFat

My whole journey into the fitness industry started with the writing of a little blog called No More Mrs Fatty McFat. I began the blog as a way of keeping myself accountable without boring my friends senseless with my continuous chattering about exercise and food which takes up 90% of my waking day. The blog […]
