New Year, New Training Gear
My focus has always been to make training fun, effective and motivating.

It’s also important for me to have variety in exercise challenges, and with that in mind, I’ve taken delivery of some great new kit, including new plyo boxes for the awesome outdoor training area, weight vests, speed ladders, battle ropes, and powerbags.

If the summer heat is a bit much in the garden, then there’s always the large air conditioned hall to train in.

Personal Training :: Small Group Training
72 Malvern Avenue, Malvern, (Off Unley Road) Adelaide

The Train Station studio will be temporarily closed for indoor training from Monday 23rd March 2020 in line with the announcement from the Prime Minister.

However, I’m very lucky to have a large private outdoor grass area to train 1 on 1 personal training in accordance with Government directive. Social distancing will be observed as well as strict hygiene practices.

Also, I will be using Zoom to live stream free 30-40 minute workouts, using little or no gym kit so we can still meet up to train in virtual groups.

The first fun/free class will be Monday 30th April in the style of my studio Fighting Fit Class. All you will need is a mat and a couple of light dumbbells. The classes will be a general level fitness class, though note you are partaking at your own risk.

New kit just arrived
I’ve just taken delivery of a great bit of kit called a battle rope. It’s surprisingly hard and great cardio, plus it’s really gets the core working too. There are so many different ways to use it. The main thing though, is, it’s really fun. Get in touch and come along and try it out.

November 2014

I’m very excited to be moving in to my new personal training premises in Unley. I have taken over the old Malvern Scout Hall, at 72 Malvern Avenue, so lots of great space to train, both indoors and out. Really looking forward to getting started and training clients old and new, plus there will be some group classes starting next year.

April 2014

It might be getting cooler outside, but we can soon warm up by moving faster and getting a good energy training session done. Perfect weather now, I feel to get outside and get moving, get walking or jogging. The Train Station has both indoor and an outdoor covered space for great energy training with lots of fun functional training kit.

New kit just arrived:
This month I have taken delivery of a full set of medicine balls, plus an Olympic bar bell and discs. Classic old style training that’s making a comeback as it works. You can’t beat weighted squats and deadlifts for great legs, plus medicine ball boxers twist and V up for core work.

Simon: Tyla is a young woman with a great sense of humor and experience in fitness for all ages. My wife found her and I was given a tryout in January 2014. I didn't think it would be my cup of tea as I am 53 years old. However, she soon had me hooked with her vibrant and forever changing morning sessions...

When I arrived in Adelaide, I was told about Mad March. So much to do and see, festivals, shows, sports events, concerts, how are you going to fit everything in? Having a few pieces for a home gym might be the answer. A few basics like a kettlebell, a mat, a swiss ball and a stretch band might be all that you need to get started. It’s finding what suits and is fun for you to do. Get in touch and try a free consult and taster session to get started with a few ideas

January 2014

In my studio in Edinburgh, Scotland, I had a pull-up/chin up bar fitted. There wasn’t a good place for it here, so I have bought a Power Tower which has a pull up/chin up bar, a captains chair for abs. and dip station.

A pull up or chin up is quite a challenging exercise and I have brought with me great stretch bands to help get the technique just right and get the strength built up. I’ve been playing with this new bit of kit and have found that it’s a great attachment for my TRX suspension trainer and TRX Rip trainer. A great basic bit of kit for functional training.

Life Truly is a Beach
My studio gear has now arrived in Adelaide. All it has to do is clear customs and then I can take delivery at my new studio space called THE TRAIN STATION on King William Road in Unley.
It’s all been wrapped in brown paper, so it will feel like an early Christmas for me. I love training with a variety of kit, keeping it fun and effective.

Mind you, not having kit is no excuse not to train. You can go with bodyweight only exercises or how about a single kettlebell.
These are readily available from some major stores in Adelaide.
I had brought along my trusty TRX with me. A great bit of kit, so many exercises you can do with it, from stretching to high impact strength and cardio work.

Gemma Hay (Head teacher) Tyla was a huge inspiration who was as invested in my success as I was. Highly motivational training sessions supported by texts in between certainly kept me on track...

Lisa Wedgwood (Restaurant Owner) I had never set foot in to a gym before but after I reached 30 I wanted to stay slim, getting married was also a motivation in itself!! After two years with Tyla, I couldn’t be happier with my figure, my health and general attitude to fitness…

October 2013

Settling in Down Under
Adelaide is quite a change from Edinburgh, loving the weather already, although running a boot camp in the snow can be really great fun.

This week I took my Australian Apply first Aid and CPR course, passing with 100% despite having to newly learn about lots of biting and venomous things that I should be aware of. My new running shoes will certainly come in handy for a quick getaway.

Today, I joined Australian Fitness (Register of Exercise Professionals) transferring my membership of UK REPs (Advanced level 4), taking my first fitness qualifications in 2004. (Click here for full list of qualifications)

So, if you are thinking about personal training, be it to get fitter, run a mile or a marathon, lose fat, gain muscle, I can help.

For me it’s not just about the exercise, though I guarantee that you will enjoy the sessions and want to get the extra homework training in; it’s also about getting great nutrition, and by that I don’t mean expensive supplements, but eating real food; and thirdly it’s the mind-set, more than just a matter of will-power, which can be both for positive and negative, but finding the long term do-able strategies to get you to your goals and surpass them.

Jane: (Teacher)I have reached my goal weight, am a lot fitter, have a better diet, loads of energy and no longer suffer from regular headaches. My skin is better and I've had to buy a new wardrobe of clothes! This is all down to Tyla's encouragement and support... (Click here for more...)

Leigh: (Private banking) Four years ago I had finally had enough of feeling tired, lethargic and lumpy and knew that a personal trainer was the only way I would feel comfortable exercising. Previous forays in to the gym or to organised classes had not gone well as I felt self conscious and uncomfortable exercising in public. Still nervous I turned up for my first session and was immediately convinced I had made the right decision. Tyla's sessions were fun from the start, she always seemed to know just how hard to push me... (Click here for more...)

Life’s a Beach Bootcamp - Edinburgh, Scotland
On a sunny Sunday, 1st September I ran my last blast Fighting Fit Boot-camp for my lovely clients in Edinburgh. I titled it “Life’s a Beach” and we had some great costumes including grass skirts and sarongs. Lindsay wore a bikini, over her training gear, well it is Edinburgh and even though we were running around, it was a brisk day. We had buckets of sand, water filled blow up rings and dolphins, beach balls (med balls) wave making with battling ropes, boat poses, crocodiles, spider(man) press-ups to name a few, plus fun and games at the end. Not forgetting, all Boot camp attendees were offered one of my special home-made healthy (although a bit calorific) chocolate cookies. The session was for an hour and a half, so we did burn through plenty of calories. I have put up some pictures on my Facebook page. Also, somewhere in there is my cookie recipe, listed on a previous boot camp update. (Click here for Facebook page)

It’s all change from mid September as I will be off to Adelaide, Australia, to be a personal trainer in the sunshine. I’m taking some kit with me on the plane with me including a TRX, stretch bands, skipping ropes, Sandbells (they will need to be re-filled), a swiss ball (and pump), plus boxing gloves and pads. I think these are great bits of kit and will keep me busy, whilst I wait for my container filled with the rest of my studio gear to arrive.

Glynis (Osteopath): Tyla is an extremely skilled personal trainer. She has worked with me to help to re-establish and maintain my personal fitness. She has friendly and considerate nature which meant that while pushing me to exert myself she maintained a good working relationship with me. (Click here for more...)

Samantha (Banking): I initially met Tyla when I booked an appointment for a massage to ease shoulder and neck tension. The massage went so well that I returned every month for the next three years. During the course of the massage, Tyla and I would chat and got to know each other well. I found her outlook in life extremely uplifting and very motivational. (Click here for more...)

Eileen (retired): I have been so pleased with the results achieved so far - I did not think I could actually enjoy exercise again at my age, 60+. Tyla always kept you motivated and took a personal interest in your development. (Click here for more...)

Tricia (professor of Midwifery- retired): Post-operative, unfit, a crinklie and feeling past it, I needed someone, somewhere to exercise under supervision without the stares of the young and beautiful. Tyla Wilson's mini gym is perfect, a private space with masses of equipment, and despite its small size plenty of room to have a full workout. The best part is Tyla - she can devise exercises at the drop of a hat for the ageing body (this week, oooh my back, next week, poor knees) (Click here for more...)

August 2013
Edinburgh has had a great summer this year, making outdoor training much more fun. Instead of donning rainproof wear, I got extra supplies of sun block for my clients whilst training out the back of my studio in the old dry dock on the Shore of Leith.

From up North to Down South
August was the last month for me in Edinburgh as I’m moving to Adelaide, Australia to be a personal trainer over there. It’s been a busy month, focusing on clients’ goals and how they will be continuing their training. From Adelaide, I will be updating my Facebook fan page on a weekly basis with exercise ideas and challenges, nutrition and menu tips. (Click here for Facebook page)

Stewart (Retired): I was originally introduced to Tyla by my Osteopath. One of the best decisions of my life! I am 69 years old, and retired, and over a period of time Tyla has managed to "persuade" me to become much fitter, and, to eat more healthily. (Click here for more...)

Sarah (Teacher and Artist): I met Tyla motivating a bootcamp in the park on a Sunday morning. She was immediately warm, embracing and enthusiastic and my husband and I joined her merry gang. I needed more tlc and joined her for 2 blocks of personal training because I sought more focus and weight loss. (Click here for more...)

Chin (Doctor): I have been training with Tyla for over a year now. I saw Tyla's website by chance and not looked back since. My goals were to maintain lean muscle, strengthen core muscles without getting too bulky and calories burning. I discussed my aim with Tyla in my first meeting and knew straight way that Tyla could help me achieve the aims. In my opinion, Tyla is very professional, courteous, enthusiastic and last but not least, patient. (Click here for more...)

Caroline - Signing up with Tyla has literally been life changing for me. Years of trying to cope with a hectic lifestyle (full time job, semi pro musician, sitting exams, etc) meant that exercise and nutrition were always the things I'd neglect as there were always 'more important things' to attend to.

New Kit to jump on and off again…
I have just put together my new plyometric boxes from Again Faster. Plyometrics, also known as “jump training” or “plyos” was first developed in the 80’s by a Russian scientist to increase Soviet athletes’ explosive speed and power in track and field events. Apart from that, they are really good fun. If you would like to find out more plus have a free taster session using the boxes and all the other functional fitness toys I have then please get in touch. (Click here)

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
March saw me qualify as a practitioner coach in NLP. I believe it takes three things to succeed in your health and fitness goals: the right mindset, great training that you want to do and healthy eating that you enjoy. NLP is a study of how we think and communicate, with ourselves and with others, and of how we can use this to get the results we want. First of all though, it’s knowing what we want and addressing any limiting beliefs we have. By looking at what drives us to behave a certain way that could be stopping us from achieving, we can work out how to change it.
The mind is a powerful thing and can leads us to self sabotage our goals with, for example, emotional eating “Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.” Henry Ford.

Sports First Aid
March also saw me also update my sports first aid and injury management. CPR on a resuscitation Annie is not the most fun of things to do, but better to get the skills practiced, a thing which I feel everyone should have a go at. It could and does save lives.

I’ve now got a fab now have a set of Sandbells® from Hyperwear USA. I bought the bells and filled them myself with sand bought from Argos, not as some of my clients have said, Portobello beach. The sand came wet, so I had to take a week to dry it out on trays before filling the bells. Almost as exciting as watching paint dry. They are such good fun though. Come try them out if you like :-)

Plus, I’ve just got my 'The Lebert Equalizer Bars' and 'The Lebert Buddy System'

I saw these two portable rails being used on a website and knew that they would make a great addition to the kit in my studio. You can use them to do dips, press-ups – incline and decline, plus hanging ab crunches to name a few.

Whilst I was on the Lebert website, I saw the Buddy Sytem . It’s like suspension training, only you work with your partner. I really think this is great fun and very effective, really hitting the core.

Food Diaries

Studies show that keeping a food dairy, can help double weight loss.

Faddy diets do not work, nor does starving yourself all day and eating a huge meal at night.

A healthy diet is full of variety and rich in fruit and vegetables, with limited amounts of fats and sugars, ideally eaten in small amounts spread evenly over the day.

Food is one of the joys of life and taking the fun of this away will only make you miserable. So, if you want to eat some ice cream or chocolate, then why not occasionally eat a small amount of the very best and make it a treat.

An old, but true saying, “you are what you eat” and by keeping a food diary we can see how we can change things to boost your energy levels and help you achieve your fitness and weight goals.

As part of your initial consultation, we will look into your diet and how we can realistically make changes to help you achieve your goals.

Walking: Get out there, its Summer, at last.

I have recently read that surveys have shown walking to be Britains most popular sport.
The summer is here in Edinburgh and with the festival due to start, it’s a great excuse to get out there and see all the open air entertainment on the Royal mile. For a little more exertion, there is always Arthurs’ seat, a fab get away from it all in the centre of the city. I also love to go hill walking, though the list of Munros I have ‘bagged’ is still rather short.

Follow the 80/20 Rule:

I have been given a book to read called The Food Doctor Everyday Diet by Ian Marber. It’s a good read and says many things that I have been telling my clients for some time. I believe that we should have a healthy eating and exercise lifestyle that is sustainable and fits in with our hectic schedules. Going on and off diets have been shown not to work.
One of my favourite principles in the book is the 80/20 rule. Eat well 80% of the time and allow yourself a treat every so often without feeling guilty. If it’s going to be chocolate for example, then make it a small bar of the best organic dark chocolate that can get.

Mainly egg white scrambled egg, omlettes or pancakes with oats rather than flour are a great protein food, using just 1 yolk to 2 or 3 whites.

Now, from a client of mine, here’s what to do with the yolks, apart from make ice-cream that is. Mind you making homemade ice-cream is an indulgence, but at least you know exactly what’s in it. Portion control is key.
Back to egg yolks. Freeze them until needed. Mix 2-3 egg yolks, 1 dstp vinegar. Blend. Add olive oil (lighter coloured) and blend again – add enough for a smooth non-drip consistency. It can stay in fridge for up to 3 days. Coat hair and leave for desired time.
Perfect, hair conditioner!!

Here’s my favorite pancake mix idea. It's high protein, great slow release carbs, low in fat and tastes good too.


3 eggs whites, 1 yolk, 1 small banana, 3 rounded desert spoons of fine milled oats, 1 rounded Linwoods fine milled nuts and seeds, use extra virgin spray oil in pan, cook slowly. Top with mixed berries and low fat yogurt


Pancake mix as above minus the banana. Topping ideas: tomatoes, spinach, watercress, rocket, cottage cheese, salmon, parmesan shavings. Try some different combinations.

FITNESS GURU!! I first went to Tyla after I failed a number of fitness tests at work, I was desperate to improve my fitness levels and fast. I was instantly impressed with Tyla's energy and professionalism, she was just what I needed. The sessions I have with Tyla never feel like a chore, I look forward to them as she is always giving me new things to try. Tyla's personal work space is great as it gives you privacy to work out, knowing no one is watching you. Tyla is full of energy and her love of fitness is infectious, I certainly aspire to be like her. After seeing Tyla regularly for only 6 weeks I passed my fitness tests at work and more importantly regained my confidence in my fitness ability.
