Online Sessions

I also train via zoom, an online app that enables a two way conversation.  Information on normal sessions and prices can be found in the sessions section.  Below is the group session I run on zoom only

6 week Special – Functional Mobility & Strength Progression Sessions (max 8)

Strength & mobility is of peak importance to a woman in her 40s and beyond.  Join me for a 6 week Strength and Mobility progression programme focussing on 5 key functional movement; squat, lunge, push, pull and rotation.  £60 including 6 x 45 minute sessions and 1 x home work out a week.

As we get older we can become stiff as fascia and connective tissue becomes dehydrated and can stick together if we don’t include multi directional moves in our weekly workout.  Mobility moves are essential to keep us flexible, supported and enable us to access our strength potential.  Learning the correct form and then progressing our strength through a series of increased loads will improve performance in every day tasks as well as in running, walking and dancing and reduce your chance of injury, in addition to increasing and maintaining your bone and lean muscle mass – a big issue as we grow older.  Strength training has also been shown to improve heart, brain, health and hormone balance.

Equipment – we will be using body weight and resistance bands, plus dumbells or kettlebells if these are available ideal.


“I’ve enjoyed Anna’s cardio classes for some time but strength was completely alien. As always, Anna’s in-depth knowledge and ability to achieve results made this a must-do. From pushing weights to improving balance, this is a great compliment to a cardio class. I can see clear benefits and would recommend to anyone.” Beth

“I started Anna’s introduction to strength classes feeling pretty fit but conscious that I didn’t do any strength workouts.   The classes really focused on getting good technique embedded which really makes it stand out from the ubiquitous online workout and was exactly what I was hoping for.  I have noticed a real difference in my strength and now find myself actually choosing to add a bit of strength work onto the end of my runs or HIIT sessions.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there’s going to be an intermediate class starting so that I can sign up for that too!”  Gen
