THE MEANING BEHIND “DUMBBELLS AND DELIGHTS

My blog back in 2010 was called Ebony Delights (don’t Google that you will need to wash your eyes out) and has gone through several transformations and reboots. It is now a fitness and wellness blog as that is my passion. Dumbbells- is my favourite exercise equipment and Delights- everything that give me pleasure. Exercise is an essential part of life and the purpose of my blog is to show the fun and exciting side of this lifestyle. My plan is to remove the fear and intimidation people feel when they think of exercise because I truly believe healthy living is for everyone and it’s meant to be fun and manageable.
