Maintaining bone strength, preserving cardiovascular health and flexibility and good posture are just few of important exercise-related goals at this stage in life. Hunched posture:
- Decreases your lungs and breathing capacity
- Reduces overhead shoulder motion
- Causes shoulder, neck, back, and rib pain
To prevent these complications, the appropriate upper body strength training and stretches are crucial.

Jocelyne: “I started training with Anna at the beginning of March 2007. In 6months I have gone down from a size 20 to a size 14 and have a lot more energy and confidence to go with it. When I met Anna for the first time, she shocked me into action by revealing my Body Fat Index, and then devised an exercise programme for me. She also asked me to keep a food diary for a week, went through it with me a week later and gave me some good advice about nutrition. I see her once a week, do a gym session on my own once a week, plus swimming or water aerobics, fast walking and spinning.
Before seeing Anna, I thought that Personal Training was something for celebrities and couldn’t see the relevance to me, but it really is the most effective way to maximise your effort. Anna knows her stuff and can be tough, but in a nice way! You will discover muscles in your body that you didn’t know existed!
Veronica: “I have been training with Anna for about 1 year now. I have found her to be one of the best trainer since having several others in the past.
Since my time with her I have found her to be polite, courteous and very understanding as to my needs.
We have worked well together and I have really benefited from her experience.
I would certainly recommend her to anyone else wishing to improve their fitness.
I hope to continue with her.”
