Shape Up Fitness
My motivation is YOU!
My goal is to get you moving and to keep you moving! My online workouts are live via Zoom and I have a growing library of pre-recorded workouts available as ‘on-demand’ sessions. My main workout is ‘body conditioning’, where we focus on strengthening your body to keep you fit, strong and in good health.
I also offer one-to-one programming and coaching in person or via Zoom where I’ll support you to reach your fitness goals.
For over 30 years I’ve enjoyed delivering all kinds of routines from vigorous and challenging to strength and conditioning workouts. A few years ago, when I experienced significant and constant pain, after exploration, I was diagnosed with good old wear and tear issues with degenerative osteoarthritis in both my hips and lower back.
At the time it was tricky to accept but determined I reviewed what exercises were best suited to maintain strength, protect bone density and still be a great workout – so my main workout passion is my full-body workout with weights called ‘body conditioning’. Your muscles are challenged as are your heart and lungs. Due to these workouts my joint pain has reduced, my body is strong, and I have improved mobility.
I value the importance of movement, strength and sensible rest much more than I’ve ever done before. I focus on exercise that helps enhance your life by maintaining or improving bone density, helps to reduce pain and improve movement ability and flexibility.
In the past, I’ve worked out too hard at times! Learnt that balance is so important – great results come from quality, not quantity!
I want to help others feel better about themselves, not through pressure but from encouragement, coaching and sometimes a change of perspective!
Thankfully from education, and learning to accept and appreciate my body, I understand what’s truly important for a more balanced approach to life and living!
So, I’m here – a normal fitness friend that understands that you might be feeling apprehensive to start something new and get out of your comfort zone, but rest assured I’ll support you.

"Thank you to Annabel. You've been amazing and provided us all with excellent, energetic, fun online classes. I'd also like to thank you for going above and beyond with the 1:1 advice and support you have supplied. I'm so glad to be part of your team and can't recommend you enough"
"I have been attending Annabel’s classes now for over 4 years. I like the mixture of strength and aerobic training and my body has benefitted by becoming stronger and leaner. Annabel’s knowledge on nutrition is excellent and she has a unique way of motivating you to work harder but also enjoy at the same time. "
"Annabel's experience comes through the online screen with natural warmth, fun and encouragement. She makes our classes uncomplicated, and still allows us to work at our own pace and ability.... and the best bit, we can still laugh, banter and feel great after her workouts.... "
"I have exercised my whole life including marathon running. I workout with Annabel and have done for many years! She is incredible, you won’t find a more motivating instructor anywhere! Her classes are great fun and you can push yourself as hard as you want! Our workouts are even better online as I don’t have to leave home or put any makeup on! Maybe I should see if I could get away with working out in my pyjamas one day!"
"Never have I felt so enthusiastic and committed to exercising at home as I have with these online classes. I feel so energised and good afterwards. I love the flexibility that the classes bring and Annabel and Sean are so motivating and welcoming. I have been a member for many years and there’s nowhere that brings me the same level of enjoyment in exercise as Shape Up."
"The only online classes I actually enjoy! The energy that Annabel & Sean bring to every class is exactly what Shape Up is all about - having fun... whilst getting fit!"
