I was introduced to Natasha at Startfit through - Natasha through her vast experience on diet fitness and the body has without doubt saved my life. Weighing in at nearly 18 stone and 5'8" and getting older :-)) massively high blood pressure and having lots of vino - Tash said don't count calories Gray just watch your sugar intake and fat but make sure you EAT LOADS OF FIBRE- oh yea just curb the vino a bit -and above all exercise under my instruction.
Twice a week she comes to my house and I have a personal training session - and she knows exactly the point to take me! Yep I'm slaughtered but feel great after.
I'm about to put pics of me up soon so watch this space with well over 3 stone off since June 2016!!! And still loving life even when it goes to quite a few tiples of vino over what she tells me I should have (but hey hoe I keep that a secret from Tash )
I travel internationally hugely and Natasha's ideas of build lean muscle and the fat will take care of itself has sure worked for me - since Christmas have trekked to Australia -Japan twice - Europe many times and not put a pound on ( oh yea Tash forgot to exercise on those trips !! )
Tash -as Pink says 'it used to be the 'Funhouse' :-)) (yep you know what I mean when I'm lying on the floor at home thinking of old pub and curry times, sweat dripping and can't move reflecting on lots of vinos that I used to have in my totally work orientated life . But have to say the way I feel now it's a better funhouse and still have those little treats (ok a little more occasionally Tash :-)) - cannot rate Startfit Highly enough !!!!!!
Laura Natasha Dilley thank you for providing a day that really packs a punch :-) Always a great start to any day when you are around! Bonus beautiful weather and feeling on top of the work pile.
Stroke can be a life-changing occurrence for both the survivor and their families yet for many people help and rehabilitation support is significantly reduced after discharge from hospital. This is where STARTfit can help.

The next interview will present the many forms of help and support that you can get from this company:
Omg. Where's Day 17??šŸ˜†
So, I finished the 30 day leg challenge just over a week ago and have missed it so much I have decided to do it again starting today. BUNS of STEAL!! Looking forward to the Ab challenge next ;)
Your work has inspired me!! I am eating cleaner and training harder. Can you send me a link for buying a TRX? There is so much on eBay I can't figure out what to buy! Keep up the great work. Xcx
I am looking forward to getting started in the New Year! Please can you put a photograph and details of your Christmas Offer up so that I can "share" it .....and ask my family to get it for me :-)

STARTfit is about creating a entire lifestyle-shift that leads to long-term change, meaning you can

I created STARTfit in 2013 having left the Royal Air Force to start a career in health, fitness and rehabilitation. Throughout my journey it amazed me that so many businesses and products offered weight loss services for men and women based around the 'quick-fix', and what amazed me even more was that the same people kept returning to the same services year after year to lose the weight they subse

Operating as usual

"Good morning my dear Zebra!" The small bird who greeted his old friend the zebra in such a friendly fashion was sitting in Ali the crocodiles wide open jaws and picking remnants of food out of his teeth.

The zebra looked at him with a terrified expression, took a step backwards and then ran away.

"But zebra, you don't need to be afraid of me! We've always..." The bird looked at the crocodile, "what's up with him? Do you know?"

Ali shook his head "no idea. Zebras are strange animals".

In this stressful world of work, deadlines and keeping up with the Jones' it's quite easy to see how our bodies react by fleeing, when in reality there is no real danger. We're not designed to flee, fight or freeze unless our lives depend on it, and daily living shouldn't constitute a threat!

If you're constantly feeling like you're in survival mode, then now is definitely the time to stop and recharge. Let us help you let go of stress, and more importantly give you the tools to keep it at bay. Join us on our specialist 5 day Mind-Body Retreats and enjoy drinking from the watering hole of life!

Totally LOVING this adventure into ! So much delicious food it surely can't be good for you!

There's plenty of clean eating options out there, and paleo might not be right for you, but if you stick to clean foods, ditch the processed junk and steer clear of sugar then you'll be onto a winner regardless.

Why do I enjoy Paleo..? I just invested in a waffle machine..! The recipe called for it!! Boom!!!

My metabolism hasn't felt this good in ages! Loving the home made granola with almond milk, and the flavours in the vegetable and beef stew are immense!

Fancy a nibble? Try the recipes from Paleo For Beginners by Rockridge Press; taste sensation!

Photos from STARTfit's post 27/03/2017

Absolutely LOVING these paleo-based meals; another version of clean eating which, without dairy, grain and wheat in general, is having a rather positive effect I must say! Not even a sniff of bloating, which means Mr Abs should soon be making a bit more of an appearance..!

Remember peeps, if you keep doing what you've always done you'll always get what you've always got! If you're stuck in a food rut then help yourself by planning a food diary for the week ahead. Include meals and snacks throughout the day that meet your macro needs and then FOLLOW THE PLAN! Be disciplined, if you've planned properly then it will be a piece of cake (no pun intended)! Trust me, it works, and your body will thank you for it!


Just about to leave for my own fitness session when I realise that, in old money, it's now only 0430...! Yawn!


Up at 0510hrs today for a circuit session, and now the sun is shining as my reward! That, and the giant cup of tea I'm drinking!


Make sure you allocate some phys time today peeps; remember, 10 minutes a day keeps the grumpy PT at bay... Or something like that!

Met a LOVELY lady yesterday for a consultation, and I'd delighted to have her on board. Here's to a new recruit wanting long-term lifestyle change :) Big 'Woop-woop' to her for making that decision to start and then being motivated to DO IT! :) :) :) Exciting!


Sugar Intake

Excellent video; tells it like it is. Remember, 25g of sugar a day is the limit... Out of interest I was feeling thirsty in this lovely sunshine and picked up a can of sparkling 'Innocence' lemon & lime... 18g of sugar. Nearly my entirely daily allowance in one drink... Don't be fooled by the branding peeps. STARTfit:SMARTfit!

Training in the sunshine! Who says fitness is a chore hey, take Bethan's example and top up the vitamin D while you train. Here we nipped onto the beautiful riverfront in Shrewsbury and did a full body session using the , a and of course a trusty mat. Simples.

Fancy a fitness session in the sun? STARTfit is offering small group Personal Training classes along the Shrewsbury riverfront for men & women who want to try something different. Grab your friends and give me a call; make fitness fun this year!!


Think before you drink

Remember, you're aiming for less then 5g of sugar per digestive sitting, and no more than 25g of sugar per day... 2 cans of these drinks and that's your entire daily allowance of sugar done... That's without a single meal...! STARTfit:SMARTfit! Know what you're slurping!!!

Stroke can strike at any age, but the determination and persistence shown by this young chap is a testament of what recovery can be achieved with a lot of motivation. Worth a read...

Another fab achievement to start the Bank Holiday; my client JC has absolutely stormed ahead with his progression having upped his training to 3 times a week. At the start of our journey he attempted the Sf 20 Minute Fitness Checker (see below for link) and managed to get all the way through to 12 Burpees before the time ran out. A few months later we tried it again; not only did he complete the full challenge, he did so with 3 minutes spare! WELL DONE JC!!!

Why not have a go of the STARTfit 20 Minute Fitness Checker?!

Great prep for the Phase II Body Transformation Challenge!


An absolutely WHOPPING well done to my incredible SF client Clare who has dropped her body fat percentage from 28 to 18!!!!! YES, 18% body fat!

I'd love for her to see how AMAZING that really is so if you're willing to show your thumbs up then please 'like' so I can tell her it's not just me who thinks she's done a cracking job!

18% - superb!! Well done Clare

My husband, Andrew Marr, had a stroke. Now I know it could happen to anybody | Jackie Ashley 28/02/2016

My husband, Andrew Marr, had a stroke. Now I know it could happen to anybody | Jackie Ashley

Huge thanks to the family for spreading the word on such an important topic.

I would like to relieve any worries however that being over-active can 'cause' stroke; it can be a trigger if you are at risk, but it is not the actual cause.

High blood pressure can weaken the artery walls and so anything that subsequently raises the heart rate, such as exercise, can result in a burst. The primary factor however is the high blood pressure. The arteries aren't likely to burst without this weakening of the wall and so exercise isn't the true cause; in fact, staying fit and healthy reduces your stroke risk as it reduces blood pressure in the long term.

Be health savvy!

Do you know your blood pressure? If not, book a quick check with your nurse; it could help save your life.

My husband, Andrew Marr, had a stroke. Now I know it could happen to anybody | Jackie Ashley Strokes among men aged 40 to 54 have rocketed in 15 years, yet the resources available to treat and rehabilitate are painfully scarce. This must change
