As a little girl, I envisioned myself as a prima ballerina! Although quite tall and gawky, I thought I was made to dance. I studied ballet at the very serious ballet school of Adelaide K. Hutton six days a week. At the age of 5 I was twrilling around the house in my full slip, my arms over my head, totally enthralled with the thrill of my graceful moves to the music. Every two years the Examiner from the Royal Academy of Ballet came all the way from England to our ballet school to give us an EXAMINATION and watch us perform our ballet syllabus where we were graded and judged.
Starting my own business was pretty scary, but it's something I've wanted for a long time. Having the encouragement and help from my friends and family made a world of difference. I'm very thankful for that, but my clients are the ones who really do the most. I couldn't do what I love without them. Starting with a personal trainer is hard thing to do, so I want to thank everyone who I've trained or will train for putting their faith in me. Without you I would still be at a job I didn't love 1000%.

After a great week of training and eating clean, sometimes we let it all out on the weekend and undo some of those gains we have made during the week. I have been guilty of that. Now with that in mind here are 3 tips to keep you on the straight and narrow.
1. Say NO to supersize- As fast food is cheap and easy to produce, supersizing your order gets the fast food chain richer and our waist lines, well poorer.

by Marc D Thompson As important as fat is, excess belly fat can be unhealthy, dysfunctional and unattractive. To maintain a proper body fat ratio or to lose unwanted belly fat, adhere to these basic principles.
I think it's so funny when my clients want to keep me a secret. Of course I respect that and I don't tell others who I train, but to me it's contradictory.I am hired to provide a wonderful health service, one that will hopefully enhance my clients well being.I guess it's the stigma attached or the "I didn't know you had so much disposable income that you can hire a trainer" attitude, when in reality, I think Health is THE MOST IMPORTANT EXPENSE AFTER PAYING YOUR MORTGAGE!
