My children are currently aged 2 years old (just) and 3 years old (nearly 4!). They are enthusiastic about most things in life and so active! At the front of our house, we have lovely big green which they run around in with their friends – they scoot, cycle, chase and generally have tireless amounts of energy.
Fitball initially started out as an ‘all over body conditioning’ class aimed at ladies! The ‘ball’
was not part of the session or even in my thoughts.
On Sunday 18th March, I completed my longest running challenge so far, the Gloucester 20! A 20 mile race around the countryside of Gloucestershire. The race felt pretty long and at times very challenging. I ran the majority of the race with a great group of Almost Athletes and dear friend, Emma.
I feel great for achieving the 20 mile landmark. At Christmas, the furthest I had run was 2 half marathons, one when I was 18 and one last year, the Tewkesbury. Each week since Christmas I have been building the miles and am so happy to have reached the 20 – only 6 and a bit to go to complete the marathon.
My next challenge is to complete the Brighton Marathon on April 15th 2012! This now seems achievable, but, I also know that it is going to hurt! To drive me forward is that this marathon is all for the great cause of raising money for Winston’s Wish, the Child Bereavement Charity. If you would like to donate please click below :
Thank you for reading 🙂
Fitball is quite simply the best exercise class I have ever done. I find the classes at Chapel Spa very relaxing, but I always feel like I have had a good workout the next day! Thanks Kirsty

Kirsty is wonderful. Before meeting her I felt fat, depressed and hated my figure. After 6 weeks of fitball classes my core was toning up and I felt fabulous.
We all need a bit of motivation at time, so I thought I would share some of the TWK client’s journey’s. I would like to share Donna’s journey.
Kirsty is so enthusiastic about our training sessions that its spurs me on even when I’m having a lazy day!
She constantly consults with me as to what my goals are and my sessions are tailor made to address them.
I called upon Kirsty for advice 5 months post baby and 3 months pre- wedding!! I started the sessions with a friend and enjoyed them so much I continued for 1:1 sessions. I admit there were times when I wasn’t sure where I was and couldn’t …see straight, Kirsty works you hard! What I really enjoyed was Kirsty’s general enthusiasm to turn your life around and she really stands by her Love fit Be fit mantra. She isn’t just interested in payment or goals for that session, but she really looks after you, inspires you and encourages you to try new pursuits or pick up where you left of pre baby. She is an inspiration herself after having two lovely children and I would recommend her without hesitation.
Still beaming from our session on Friday! I never thought that I would be able to run 5k in my life but with all your help and support since January i have the motivation to achieve things I never thought possible! I know that my journey has only just begun but with your support I know I will finally reach my goals – thank you! Cant wait for our next session.
