Hey, I’m Annabel
I began teaching fitness at 18 and love it (it’s been a few years!)
Personally, I’ve made many mistakes over the years and tried the latest fads…even the daft things. I was stuck on that low-carb diet like forever, stopped and as soon as a bit of weight crept up I ran straight back into the demands of Dr A! I’ve deprived and tried many new regimes. I once believed I was a certain blood type, followed the rules for that type and lost weight only to discover afterwards I actually wasn’t that blood group at all! I’ve gained weight and lost weight but after many years and study, I understand the importance of eating well and the invaluable benefits of a balanced and healthy diet to support your long-term health regardless of your aesthetics.
I’ve also been guilty of ignoring injuries in the past, I pushed through only to end up more in pain. However a few years ago I was experiencing significant constant pain and after exploration, I was diagnosed with degenerative osteoarthritis in both my hips and lower back plus a tear in the labrum (ouch) so I truly value the importance of movement, strength and sensible rest much more than I’d ever done before and with further education, I now focus on exercises that enhance your life, help to reduce pain and improve movement ability.
Over the years I’ve worked out hard, in younger years attained the unrealistic ‘Insta-Impressive’ physique and then backed off because I’d overdone things – felt disappointment as my body softened and heard people say I ‘needed’ to diet. But it was not sustainable nor healthy so I learnt that the very industry I loved had an ugly side! This astounded me because I wanted to help others feel better about themselves, but not by this type of pressure and thinking! I changed my approach and stopped worrying about what others thought – after all it’s none of my business! Thankfully from education, learning to appreciate my body and many more years of experience, I understand what’s truly important for a more balanced approach to life and living! So I’m here – a real normal fitness friend that understands a lot especially that you might be feeling scared to start something new and get out of your comfort zone but I come from a kind and supportive perspective not one of criticism (ever).
I’m more than just a plethora of certifications. I now know what works. That’s why I can help you. My knowledge comes from real-life experience, working with people just like you! Ax

"I never thought online work outs would ever be my thing but it is solely due to the enthusiasm, professionalism, versatility and friendliness of Annabel's classes that I am now a convert. Easy to slot into ones day with smiling happy faces and great camaraderie what’s not to like? Annabel and her family are a testament to her business and her unfailing positivity and encouragement, with instructions for all levels, is all one could wish for. Thank you Annabel. You are a star!"
"I have been attending Annabel’s classes now for almost 2 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. All the members of Annabel’s classes add a lot of fun and laughter to the workouts plus her boundless energy."
"Annabel and Sean have kept us going, and made a difficult time a most enjoyable one! 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 certainly kept up my fitness level with them! Doing these online classes at home are such a bonus and so convenient. Thank you Annabel, Sean and Tate, you're a great family team!”
"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!"
