Anya developed a passion for sport and fitness whilst studying for a degree at the University of Bath, which has a strong reputation in elite sports performance and student sport. During her time there she represented the University in lacrosse, as well as regularly training at the university fitness suite. 

After a successful ten year career in the television industry, Anya decided to transform her life and become a personal trainer, proving it’s never too late to make a big life change.  


Anya is extremely driven and focused in helping her clients reach their goals. Her caring, encouraging and positive attitude coupled with her careful planning and preparation of programmes, tailored to her individual clients’ needs, makes her an in demand trainer, with many of her clients regularly achieving and exceeding their own expectations. 


She is constantly striving to be the best trainer she can be by furthering her knowledge and completing numerous courses. A few years ago, she qualified as a Girls Gone Strong Pre and Post Natal Fitness Coach, which is internationally recognised as one of the best pre and postnatal certifications for fitness and healthcare professionals.
