I am Annie! Thank you for taking the time to get to know me.
I was born and raised in Suffolk and I have always had an incredible amount of energy and a huge heart. I am fun, hard-working, and tough on myself - don't worry - not you!
My passion for movement start when I was four years old and won my first disco dance competition at the age of seven years old to Michael Jackson "BEAT IT" I then continued to dance and run for the next fourteen years up to the age of eighteen, representing my school, Northgate High Ipswich, 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 thirty years old. To lose weight, I started my marathon journey a year later after having my first son, "Jack," and I haven't stopped since.
I also represented my school in four teams. I am so grateful and happy that I have found the right job to nurture my desire for health, fitness, and helping others! 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! My goal is to reach one hundred!
I am a very proud Charity Ambassador of Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital. This is the reason why I run passionately so many marathons to raise funds for the children.
As a trainer, I have met and trained numerous wonderful people. 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 that gave me wisdom and empathy. I know how hard things can be, but I also know how to WIN! When you work with me - it's about YOU achieving what you wish to achieve. I don't believe in extreme diets or exercising. I believe in consistency, hard work and a little sacrifice for what you want will get you there - for life! 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 happy person and therefore, like to work in a happy, warm, and respectful environment with my clients, as it is a very personal business. We will share a lot - ups and downs along the way! Trust is of the utmost importance for that reason.
I BUILD STRONG BODIES, MINDS, AND FRIENDSHIPS.
So now you know a little more about me. I hope you would like to work with me. I would LOVE to work with YOU.
