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.

Back to Basics

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 […]
