Shape Up Fitness
My motivation is YOU!
My goal is to get you moving and to keep you moving! My online workouts are split between live Zoom classes and also a library of pre-recorded workouts available as ‘On Demand’. My main workouts are ‘body conditioning’ classes, where we focus on strengthening your body to keep you fit, strong and in good health.
If you’re looking to upgrade your healthy eating and lifestyle choices then take a look at my healthier kitchen series and my other resources.
I also offer one to one programming and coaching where I support and help you to reach your fitness goals.
I am a health and fitness industry veteran with over 30+ years’ experience! I enjoyed years of delivering vigorous and challenging classes with endless hi-impact routines until a few years ago when I experienced significant and constant pain, after exploration, I was diagnosed with degenerative osteoarthritis in both my hips and lower back.
At the time I just couldn’t accept that I wasn’t able to leap about as I had done but it was simply too painful. Determined I reviewed what exercises were best suited to maintain strength, protect bone density and still be a great workout and discovered my new workout passion!! My full-body workout using weights is called ‘body conditioning’. Your muscles are challenged as are your heart and lungs. I am now not in constant pain, my body is strong and I have improved my 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, learning to appreciate my body and from many years of experience, 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 a lot especially since you might be feeling apprehensive to start something new and get out of your comfort zone but rest assured I come from a kind and supportive position.
Get in touch if you have any questions – I would love to help you. My knowledge comes from real-life experience, working with people just like you.

"Thank you to Annabel & Sean at Shapeupfitness online. You've been amazing throughout this crazy time 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 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!"
