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 […]

What is Functional Exercise?

Here at Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness Port Talbot, we often use the phrase functional movement or exercise, when describing movements within a programme for clients. Functional exercise/movement/training are big buzzwords in the fitness industry at the moment and I’m often asked what Functional Exercise is.  Most trainers, when asked, can’t actually give a specific definition.

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 […]

Realisation of a Goal 1

Since I set up KrissieKirby.com and then subsequently changed to Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness Port Talbot, the dream was to not just be content with delivering sessions to clients and leaving them in sweaty mess on my gym room floor. I feel that as a Personal Trainer I need to be offering my clients far […]
