Fitness is for Life

Hello! Hello!


I am Annie!  Thank you for taking the time to get to know me.  


I am 53 year old now and was born and raised in Suffolk.  I have always had an incredible amount of energy and a huge heart.   I am fun, incredibly hard-working, and I love to learn.


My passion for movement started at the age four years old.  I won my first disco dance competition at the age of seven years old to Michael Jackson "BEAT IT"  I  continued to dance and run for the next fourteen years up to the age of eighteen years old.  I enjoyed representing my school, Northgate High Ipswich, Suffolk. I also ran for the Ipswich Harriers Running Club and became 200 meters running champion and County runner.   I also qualified in dance too.  Tap, Ballet, Modern, and Contemporary dance. Before moving to London in 1993. I met my husband and started a family at 22 years ago now.    To lose weight, I started my marathon journey a year later after having my first son, "Jack," and I haven't stopped since.                                                                                                  


 I love nothing more than seeing my clients change in body and mind when we start working towards their goals and then smashing them!  It is almost as great as being a "ROCK STAR!" Almost! I guess you should also know that I love adventures and learning new skills.   This has taken me to the Sahara, and  I have enjoyed dancing with Prince at the O2.  I have run over eighty-seven races , 5k, 10k, half, full  marathons and three ultras to date! I haven't finished yet!                                                                                                                   

I am a very proud Charity Ambassador of Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital and Terrence Higgins Trust, and the Eve Appeal ove the last 21 years.   Raising money for charities is why I run Marathons.  


As a trainer, I have met and trained numerous wonderful and inspirational people from everywhere. But most of all,  I am totally committed to my clients and their well-being.  I LOVE it! I am constantly upgrading my skills to offer a first-class service to my clients.  Whether it is weight loss, pregnancy, mental health, running, nutrition, conditioning, or obesity.  I am a strong believer in the power of "GREAT HEALTH".   It's your platform for a "GREAT LIFE!"                                                      

I like to think that my strongest quality to offer my clients is my self-discipline and ability to be consistent during my working and personal life. I have overcome many personal and physical challenges, which resulted in me becoming wiser, more understanding and patient. Great skills to work with.  I know how hard things can be, but I also know how to WIN in life!   When you work with me - it's about YOU achieving what you wish to achieve.    I don't believe in extreme diets or mad exercising.  I believe in consistency, hard work and a sacrifice! Let's face it - we don't brush our teeth just for six weeks at a time - do we!  I believe you and I are a  'WORKING TEAM!'.   One without the other, hasn't, doesn't, and never will work!                                                                                                                                


I am a positive and honest person.
