May time at Little Mis Fit

Hey Mis Fitters ,

I hope you all had a fabulous Easter – how gorgeous was the weather!!! , at least here in the UK!.  It was glorious and really felt like summer had come early.  My poor boyfriend though was in Spain on a Stag do and it chucked it down! Still they took refuge in the pub and still had a great time and I think they just avoided all our social media posts of us all back home basking in the sunshine!. 

I spent a lot of the Easter weekend out in the garden , it really is my peaceful place and I love to head out there with my book and a cup of tea or on occasion a cold glass of Sauvignon  Blanc. This past weekend I’ve been reading the Mrs Hinch book , I really enjoyed it.  It was her story and also had plenty of her cleaning tips in too.  Aswell as reading though I was also working on planning out May here at Little Mis Fit .  Though I did also fit in a trip to Ramside spa for a night with some of my friends to celebrate a few of our birthdays. We had an absolute ball and of course with the weather being so lovely, it felt like being on holiday sitting by that outdoor pool , sipping prosecco, loving life!. 

May for me is Birthday Month! , Its a big one this year aswell, so plenty celebrations. I always feel like birthdays are always special though – not everyone gets to grow old so every birthday should be celebrated.  

May Happenings 

May class passes will be on sale from Friday 3rd May and are valid until 31st May. 

8 session pass – £35 

12 session pass – £50 

Unlimited monthly pass – £60

I am away Wednesday 1st May and Thursday 2nd May so no classes either of these days.  We also have two bank holidays in May – Monday 6th May and Monday 27th May so no classes these days either.  

May Class Timetable 

 We have been incorporating lots of Weight work in our sessions.  We already use them a lot in our Barre Burn class and we have started using them in our Small Group Pilates sessions aswell, which the guys are loving. 

We will definitely be using the weights more in other classes too such as body sculpt.  Weights help us to build muscle which in turn burns fat and of course helps us tone up. Did you also know though that weights also help keep our bones strong especially as we get older and our bones become more brittle.  Keeping our bones strong by using weights and body weight exercises can help us reduce our risk of brittle bones as we do get older, so it is important to build that strength up and lets face it none of us want bingo wings do we!.  hands up if every time you wear a strappy top , you think to yourself – I wish my arms were more toned!.  

if you would like to invest in some weights for classes – get either 1kg or 2kg ones for the Pilates/Barre burn/Body Sculpt . I got both sets from Argos. 


Barre Burn 6.30pm-7pm at North Durham Academy, Stanley 

Pilates 7pm-7.30pm at North Durham Academy, Stanley

April at Little Mis Fit


Hey Mis Fitters!,

Can you believe we are almost into April??? We are a quarter of the way through 2019 already!.  Have you guys been following along with March matness and trying out a few Pilates moves?.

Its been a busy few months here at Little Mis Fit since going Full time which is fantastic.  It really has been a bit of a whirlwind  . I’m heading off for a little break this weekend though , which I am really looking forward to, a chance to catch my breathe and recharge ready for the next quarter. It really is so important to take time out to recharge your batteries.  You really do feel so much better for it.  So make sure you guys are taking some time in your day or week just for you, to enjoy a little time out.  April is actually Stress awareness month so I’ll be sharing some tips and ideas here on the blog and over on my social media pages , so be sure to come follow us –

April is also Caesarean awareness month , as a Post Natal instructor , I’ll also be sharing some tips and stretches and exercises for new mams. 

Of course this Month we also have Easter.  Does anyone else  think that Easter Eggs are even nicer than regular chocolate?. I mean I’ve always been a Cadburys Chocolate button kind of girl – I have a bit of an addiction to be honest, but Easter eggs are just so yummy and it really does not help when the Supermarkets sell them half price – far too tempting

February at Little Mis Fit

Guys can you believe the first month of 2019 is just about over and we are about to enter Chapter 2 ?.  

I know a lot of people think January seems to last forever, but for me , Classes have been super busy  and I had a few fun adventures booked in – bonus a lot of them had been paid for in advance  – always good in January!.    I had got my sister afternoon tea at the Town House in Durham for her Birthday back in November and we had booked it for January . It was so nice!.  if you don’t know it, its a Gorgeous little twenties style boutique hotel right in Durham City, it really was like stepping back in time to another era, and the afternoon tea was really nice! . 

Then Peter and I had a date night to the Sage to see Dirty Dancing the musical  which was fantastic!. I have seen it on the stage a few times before, but just with the smaller venue , it definitely added a little more to the show.

  My mam and dad also  celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary ,

so its been a busy fun start to the year, with plenty more celebrations to come. throughout the year. 

Classes have been really busy which is brilliant!.  I honestly love teaching and we have really built such a lovely community within the classes ,and the small groups and in the  1-1 sessions  , that sessions are always so much  fun to teach with plenty banter and laughter alongside the workouts.  Its said your Vibe attracts your tribe and I am so so lucky with all you guys!. 

I’ve also been hooked on a couple Netflix shows this month too. Have any of you watched YOU on there?. so good!!! can not wait for season 2!.  I’ve also been hooked on Marie Kondo tidying up.  I read her book a couple years  – The magic art of tidying up and now she has her own Netflix show and I’m hooked.  I’ve been decluttering the house using the Kondo method. Its about keeping the things that spark joy for you – if it no longer sparks Joy, its time to thank the item and then declutter it. Have any of you guys been watching too?. Have you been inspired to try the Kondo method?.

Hello Mis Fitters


So its now officially Autumn!.   The final quarter of 2018 – honestly where has the year gone?. Does anyone else think its just whizzed by so fast?. Please say yes so I just don’t think its because I’m getting older and they say time speeds up as you do eek!.    

The end of Summer / start of Autumn weekend was a good one – I went to see Wicked last Saturday – its the third time I’ve seen it now but its just as spell binding as the first time!.  Sunday was such a lovely Sunny  Autumn day , we took a stroll around Beamish museum.  We have those annual passes for £20 which means you can go as often as you like – its perfect for a nice walk. plus there is always something going on there. The pub with their apple cider – delicious, perfect for this time of year   . I can’t wait for the 1950’s town to open aswell!!! .

This week I  finished my Barre qualification, hurrah!. Barre is a combination of Ballet moves, combined with Pilates and Yoga  – plus we’ll be adding in elements of HIIT, plus  using weights aswell for workout that is going to help you get leaner, stronger and more toned – perfect for any time of year , but especially with the Christmas party season right around the corner!.  Its a class I’ve wanted to bring to the timetable for a while and  I’m excited to finally be able to do just that.   check out our new October Timetable on our Timetable page! .  I would love to add a Teen/Tween barre class too if I can fit one in somewhere!.  Those of you coming along to Barre next week – don’t forget your 1kg weights if you have them!.   I got mine from Argos for £6.99. 


I’m also busy working on our Halloween themed classes –

Monday 22nd October  

Halloween Kids Yoga camp  1130am-3pm at Believe and Be Consett  . This class is suitable for kids age 4-7. £18 per child  including a picnic lunch ,  90 minutes play in believe Town plus a Yoga and craft session. Spaces are limited so do please book early! 

Of course  they can get dressed up in their halloween costumes ! 

We will also be doing our Pumpkin HIIT  class and a family  Halloween Yoga class!  on Saturday 27th October – more details to follow!  

Last week we also had our first men on mats pilates class  – which was really busy. I think they really didn’t know what to expect, but they all did brilliantly . They all seemed to really enjoy it and hopefully all coming back!

 By the end of the year Little  Mis Fit will be full time – eek, I’m not going to lie ,  I am so nervous to leave my corporate 9-5 Travel job with its steady pay check and benefits – I only work there two days now but its still nerve racking taking that leap into full time self employment .  I have to try though and life is indeed what happens at the end of your comfort zone so its time to spread my butterfly wings  and fly. I’ll definitely  be sharing my journey here on my blog for those of you that want to follow along. Maybe you are on a similar journey or maybe you would love to do something you are passionate about for a career so maybe  my journey might help you in some way. 


This weekend I’m off on a little trip to the Busy Bee Studio in Durham with my friend Erin, for a browse around their Halloween/Autumn goodies.  Erin has been telling me about this shop for ages and they  have three big shopping weekends  – one end of September, one end of October and one end of November . I’m so excited. as they keep posting teasers on Instagram of the shop and all the amazing products. Check out their Instagram  I’ll try and Instastory on our trip there , and I’ll definitely be sharing anything I purchase.

Spooktacular October at Little Mis -Fit

Hey Guys,

Right I feel I have said this so often this year , but honestly I can not believe another month is almost over!. I mean its October next week! – October ! . Though I admit , I do love Halloween month, I’ll will definitely be gong in the loft to get my Halloween décor out in the next week or so . I got some fab Halloween mugs last week from Tk MAX. – what about you guys? – do you decorate your home for Autumn/Halloween? . if you follow me on Instagram @littlemisfitjojo- I’m sure I’ll be doing some Insta stories on my autumn/Halloween décor.  

October at Little Mis-Fit we will see some timetable changes! . Injecting some new classes.
We will be bringing Barre classes to the time table . Barre is a combination of taking ballet moves and fusing them with pilates and yoga moves to help strengthen and tone the entire body and we can also make it a HIIT style workout too – welcome to Barre BURN!!. If any of you would like to get a pair of 1kg weights to bring along to these classes , to add in an extra challenge to the workout, then it would add an extra challenge.
You can get these from Sports Direct, Argos , Amazon etc. Don’t worry you will still be able to do the classes without these , it just adds that little extra to your workout and of course Christmas party dress season is right around the corner . I am also
going to bring a boxing style class back on a Saturday morning , as we have been boxing past couple weeks and I know some of you miss it.

We will also have a Small group training starting Mid October , which will take us to the end of November – right in time for Party season. Please let me know if you would be interested in a place.

Pilates Small Group will also be back Mid October though this often sells out pretty quickly!.

From January , I will also be looking at running some day time Small group sessions so please let me know if this would be something you would be interested in. these will be in addition to the evening sessions.

Little Mis-Fit’s Greatest Adventure yet …….

So this week,  my little community fitness business – Little Mis-Fit  turns 8 years old!!!.   



I look back 8 years ago , at the hopes and dreams I had when I set out on my journey and honestly can’t believe how fast the time has flown by, and how much my little dream has grown and become my reality .  

I had always loved Exercise. I started running in primary school – one of the teachers used to take a group of us out on a Friday lunch time. Throughout Secondry school, I was on the cross country team and I loved PE.  Now I was on the Cross country team, -but honestly  I was so not the best runner at all but what I did have was the determination to try and to keep trying. I would train with the team each lunch time, I went to running club on a Tuesday and Thursday night  and just practiced and practiced. I just really enjoyed it and I got faster and fitter.  So when I left school the Career advice lady who came to school, suggested I may want to go into the fitness industry, at that time though I wanted to travel and sport was something I did because I enjoyed it , what if it was my job and I came to hate it??.   so I became a travel agent!. 

In 1995, at the age of 16, I left school after my G.C.S.E’s to enroll on a YTS (youth training scheme ) as a trainee travel agent – I wanted to travel the world .  I liked the job but there was just something inside that told me , this was not really what I was meant to do  .   I have travelled to some amazing places and even got to work in Las Vegas a couple of time so when I was  in my early twenties  which was pretty cool. 

Over the years however I did keep coming back to the idea of teaching classes. Finally in 2010  as the age of 30 , I found a local course and decided to go for it. Now not many people know this but in actual fact I signed up to do my Pilates course first!!!, then changed my mind and switched to the group fitness course instead.  It was over 10 weeks and it was a tough 10 weeks!!. It was the first time I had studied in a long time and I was working full time and at college on a Sunday all day and trying to juggle the homework and choreography practice. Ha all that juggling though would stand me in good stead for all the juggling I do now!.  I remember having a week off travel work , during the middle of it though and it was a lovely sunny day and I was sat in my garden , studying – thinking this could be my life! My life could be not being stuck behind a desk all day in a stuffy office for 8 hours , 5 days a week , but instead have the freedom of  doing a job I loved and working more flexible hours.  8 years on , I am achieving that dream!.  A couple years ago, I did eventually get around to  doing  my Pilates course aswell hurrah!.   From that first moment of teaching – I knew I had found it – the job I was meant to do!. It just felt right

After getting my Group fitness qualification – I set up a Class on a Monday night in a local church hall. Back then I think I was on Facebook but no clue really how to use it . In fact I didn’t really know much about running a business at all! . When I was 24  and saving for my first house, aswell as my travel job though , I worked as a Virgin Vie make up rep – so I would go round delivering parties selling make up – as a make up junkie  this was actually a bit of another dream job too , getting to play with make up and being paid for it ha.   Hmmm actually I wonder if Charlotte Tillbury or Mac would be interested in me doing a little side work for them …………………. .  Anyhoo I digress but actually being a Virgin Vie rep I did learn a couple things about marketing and running a business so I was not totally clueless  as I learned about keeping my accounts and a bit about marketing but there would be so much more to learn.   

It has not always been an easy journey – so many people think being their own boss is much easier than working for someone else. In actual fact its so much harder.  I’ve tried things that didnt work  out but there have been plenty things that have worked out and I genuinly love what I do . In recent years I have also started working with kids – doing Yoga  , which is actually not something i ever set out to do, It was a little detour but again something I really enjoy so definatly a case of  Serendipty    (FYI totally love that movie!!) 

I am truly truly grateful  to each and everyone of you that has been part of the Mis-fit journey over the past 8 years – some of the people in that very first class, are still with me today  and the same with my second class I set up a couple months later – they are also still with me.    Without all you guys coming to classes and helping spread the word,  Mis-Fit would not be what it is today. You guys inspire me to keep going , to keep teaching classes  , to keep learning new things to increase my knowledge and keep classes fresh and fun.   I love our little Mis-Fit community we have created , with friendships formed and the craic in the classes . I can have had a really stressful day at the 9-5 and all I want to do when I finish is curl up on the settee and watch netflix, but I know the minute I stand up in class and start teaching you all , sharing in the banter , laughing , Its the perfect medicine and I love that I know its the same for you guys too.  You can have loads going on at home/work but you show up for class for some You time and we help you feel better too.  

Huge thank you aswell to my mam, dad and sister who  are my constant cheerleaders, cheering me on and supporting me and my friends who do the same and who understand when I can’t always play out because my working hours are so different to theirs but they are always there. 


My Big goal was always to aim to make Little Mis-Fit my full time job. As I got more Qualifications and grew my classes , I was able to reduce my days at my travel job from 5 days to 3 days and last December I actually dropped down to 2 days. However having returned from Holiday this  Summer and having talked about it forever and with the support of my family and friends all cheering me on , I made the huge decision to take a leap of faith and take Mis-Fit full time – eeekkkkkkk!.  S*#t just got real people!!!!!!!.   So from December 2018  – Mis-Fit is full time!!!! . 

Maybe it will work out , maybe it won’t   –  that determination I had when I was starting out running , that has always  stayed with me   and I have every determination to try and make this succeed too -Either way I have to at least try – after all the magic happens when you step outsode your comfort zone!  .   I believe at least trying  ,  will be Little Mis-Fit’s  greatest adventure yet!.   


Time now for Cake and Prosecco!!!!!!!!!!
