Find your best self
Believe it or not, we have to move MORE as we age. Are you experiencing any of these:
Tired all the time
Muscle mass loss (sarcopenia)
Lack of motivation
Low bone density (osteopenia/osteoporosis)
And you don’t have any idea what your next step is?
The hard facts and research estimate that between the age of 60-70 years old, we have lost 12% of our muscle mass due to sarcopenia (loss of muscle mass; muscle around the limbs starts to atrophy, resulting in a decrease in function) and those over 80 have lost over 30%. 1
Osteoporosis and obesity also go hand-in-hand with sarcopenia as high risk factors as we age. Strength and resistant training are an effective way to build muscle and keep your quality of life by staying fit and feeling good. Here at Wellness By Anna, I work with your Whole Self. As a Functional Personal trainer, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Yoga therapist, I create a supportive environment that enables you to find your best self through movement, wholesome eating, healthy habits, and a community of like-minded people.
About WBA: Go deeper with expert guidance
Hi. I’m Anna.
When I turned the big “5-oh”, I had an awesome birthday. I even got a custom cocktail made for the occasion! But… there were a few gifts I didn’t count on. Adrenal fatigue. Frozen shoulder. Thyroid malfunction. Weight gain. Sound familiar?
When was the last time you felt good in your body? When did you feel like you owned your own body? Let’s get back to that place. You CAN own your body and trust that it’s “got your back” for whatever life presents you.

Andie ..."my best shape ever."
I have been training with Anna for 10 years. I started on my 59th birthday and have continued working out with her 2 times a week. It has been a valuable long-term investment in my health and appearance. I am in great shape - toned, strong and fit, looking younger than my age and more importantly feeling younger. I believe I am in the best shape ever. Anna is always modifying the routine while each time addressing stretching, balance, strength building and cardio.
Julienne..."from couch potato to a lean mean exercising machine"
Anna has taken me from couch potato to a lean mean exercising machine, she does so with kindness and ferocity, I look forward to her workouts, always different, and always learning something new. I especially noticed an improved difference especially in my upper body after I added sessions to workout two days a week. Such a difference.
Char ... I even like jogging now.
Michelle … “yoga, holistic approach and good energy”
I thought I was aging well and in decent shape until the simple act of carrying plastic bags of groceries in each arm caused muscle strain in my neck and shoulders. Yikes! Time to consult a trainer. I appreciate her background in yoga, holistic approach and good energy – it was a perfect fit.
David … “truly meets me where I am”
I have dealt with injuries for a long time. I used to have a very physical job that banged me up pretty good. Anna is the first trainer to truly meet me where I am and work with what I have. A flare-up of an old back injury forced me to stop running about 6 months ago, but after working with Anna on balance and stability issues, and on postural changes, I am back to doing short runs. I feel better than I have in years. I strongly recommend Anna if you want a trainer who will invest time in you and truly teach you how to improve your health from within yourself.
