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 […]


Revelations 1

  Nah, not the biblical kind but the last few weeks I’ve had quite the personal revelation happen. So much so, that this is the blog I always wanted to write but never thought it would ever actually happen. Regular readers of Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness blog and, more specifically, the No More Mrs […]


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.

When motivation wanes

The importance of practice

It might seem a bit ‘teaching Gran to suck eggs’ (where does that odd saying come from?), but sometimes a workout should be left to one side and the focus should be placed on practicing form and technique.   At Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness Port Talbot, we believe that one session every month should […]
