A recommendation from a friend led me to a body transformation that started in January 2017. January... The month that everyone decides that "I'm going to get fit".... My reason was slightly different- I'm a teacher; a PE teacher, so exercise was always part of my day.... Sometimes a chore. A 5 ft 4 female, weighing in at 56/57kgs. Fast forward 15 months, sleep deprived, poor diet and a new post natal body that weighed nearly 70kg- I just thought it was a body that I now I had to accept as mine. I could not shift the pregnancy pounds.... It got me down but Annie has got me a body I never thought was achievable beyond the age of 21!!! She took me on, lacking in confidence and lots of chumb! We started off slowly, my body still fragile from birth.
Week by week I saw the transformation, random text messages during the week to see how I was feeling (the timing was perfect... My head would be in the fridge, seeking out the sweet treats!) Those texts got me back on track when I reminded myself, "no, you have weigh in on Wednesday"
Annie is the most amazing trainer (inside and out!). As we squat, I want to do double squats as she motivates me. If I'm tired she has a way with words that will get yourself kicking butt! She has opened my eyes to so many different forms of exercise, a personal favourite being Piyo!
What used to be a chore is now something I genuinely look forward too, twice a week. We laugh throughout the session, (I have also welled up when Annie told me about her phenomenal achievement of running and achieving a bronze medal in The Comarades ultra marathon in South Africa)
Her personality is infectious, her motivation is mind blowing and her care for her clients is incredible. If you want to achieve things you never thought were possible... Book a session with Annie Foulds!

My husband's testimonial and fundraiser email. True and
Working with Annie has been unique and an absolute pleasure. Her method is unique as she listens to you, how you are feeling and what your goals are and then tailor makes your work out based on how your body is feeling on the day.
Our work outs never felt repetitive or a chore as every time was inspirational and worked within the realms of how my body had reacted since the last work out.
I met my goals for weight loss and muscle conditioning within a record period but did not push my body beyond its limits. Annie is always careful not to injure weak points that had developed through previous injury and body changes after pregnancy.
We always found time to work out well and have a laugh and a catch up in between. I always looked forward to seeing Annie as she has become more of a friend then just a trainer! She understands women's bodies and heading into your 40's and how to make the most physically of our health during this time of change.
I always ask myself now when contemplating not working out or having that extra slice of cake ....what would Annie do!!??!! I always find the right answer as Annie now lives in my subconscious.

" Fun and Hard'
Having returned from a skiing holiday my heaviest weight ever and been beaten on the slopes by a 75 year old ( I am 26) I knew something had to change and that is when I discovered Annie. Having not exercised in years Annie was just what I needed to get me on the right track again and I can now honestly say after training twice a week for 3 months I am a changed person. I have feel healthier and more energised than ever. Annie has a diverse range of workouts but my personal favourite is her TRX sessions which is the most effective workout I have ever come across.
Annie combines a super intense core workout with cardio and I firmly believe they are the reason I am fitting into those pencil skirts that have been languishing in the back of my wardrobe. Crucially, Annie makes every session a joy with her tireless positivity, I am now thoroughly addicted to her workouts and could not recommend her highly enough!"

I was introduced to Annie by a common friend. From the first moment I was in awe, standing in front of me was an amazing athlete with a beautiful face and the perfect body, full of joy and energy. I instantly knew that this was the right person to train with. I am glad to admit that after a few months of training, building my strength and stamina to a level I have never achieved before, perfecting my body and discovering the world of kickboxing, long distance running and training in the park, I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer. Annie’s smile, energy and mental conditioning encouraged and inspired me to find a new level of enjoyment in training and prepared me for the challenges within my motor racing career.
Thank you Annie!

"Simply the Best"
"I first met Annie over three years ago when I was a heavy smoker and couldn’t even complete the warm up jogs at the start of our training sessions. I completed my first half marathon three months ago and I have been smoke free since nearly two years.
Annie has been at the centrepiece of my journey towards a healthier lifestyle, she has helped & supported me in obtaining fitness goals that I had deemed unattainable. More importantly she is one of the most inspiring women I have met on a professional, personal, physical and intellectual level.
Through her relentless optimism and positive energy she has the ability to bring out the best in me. I look forward to many more years of fun, creative, exciting (and hard work!) PT sessions with Annie. She is simply THE BEST!"

"Smile & Positive'
As an ex professional sportswoman, I’d always struggled to be challenged or even work up a sweat with other person trainers. I expressed this to Annie on our first meeting which in hindsight was probably not necessary!
That was almost five years ago and I’ve never looked back. Annie has helped me maintain my fitness levels and is an absolute pleasure to work with. Regardless of the time of the day, Annie always brings a challenge with a huge smile and she’s massively motivational. After all our sessions, I’m still given new exercises which keeps our sessions so up beat. Often we work together first thing in the morning and it always get me off to a great start to the day.
I regard this positive, inspirational woman far more than a PT and I look forward to extending our relationship and friendship into the future.

Annie is incredible genuinely kind and positive disposition have always been an inspiration to myself. Her boundless energy, huge generosity and professinalism are simply remarkable.
Annette, is an athlete and professional personal trainer. She has ben training me in preparation for ‘Walk the Walk’ – breast cancer charity – as well as numerous friends and we all are in awe of extraordinary human and professional qualities.
Debora d’Armagnac Regazzacci - September 2014
Before I started training with Annie I used to dread working out as I found it just mind numbing and monotonous going to the gym – with Annie training is so enjoyable and energising, there is not a moment of boredom and the time just flies, I feel amazing by the end of every session and equally happy with the results.
I can honestly say I’m addicted and feel very disappointed when I have to miss a session due to work.
Not only is Annie an amazing personal trainer but also a remarkable lady and her commitment to health and well-being is a real inspiration. I call her Super Woman for a reason.

“Back to training”
I used to train very regularly over about a 12 year period but because of an overseas move I had not trained consistently for about 4 years. Exercise was once a big part of my life and I wanted to get it back. I have now been training with Annie for 4 months. I train on average 3 times a week and my program is tailored to perfection by Annie – cardio, strength, gym work, outdoor – we cover every discipline for all round fitness. I have rediscovered the motivation for exercise that I thought had gone for good and we now work toward specific goals and targets. I am now training at a level of intensity I thought would be impossible to recapture and am genuinely as motivated to work hard on my fitness as I have ever been.
I can’t recommend Annie highly enough as a great motivator but above all a really creative trainer.

"I booked Annie for 6 sessions before I got married (2 sessions a week for 3 weeks) as I had gotten sofar with weight loss & toning myself but I needed to be pushed in order to go the final distance.
I was thrilled with the results especially in the short space of time, in particular my arms! She worked me very hard but it was worth it for the compliments I received from friends & family and for the photos – which I’ll have forever."

I exercised up until the seventh month of my pregnancy with Annie. Despite my growing stomach keeping up outdoor cardio exercise helped me feel positive, healthy and energised in the lead up to the birth.

"Annie is very professional, enthusiastic and passionate about what she does. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field always ensuring that she is continuously investing in herself in order to benefit her clients.
She is a stunning person on the outside as well as the inside and I consider her to be a valued business partner as well as a friend".
