Steph, 40

Alittle long but wanted to share...

My journey so far....I just hope this helps someone who feels like I did to believe it can be done....

Beginning of this year, I felt so fed up with how I looked and felt... it was time to make some changes.... This was a turning point. To go to something on my own with not knowing anyone, was way out of my comfort zone.

I met Annelies Merrells, she is the instructor at the Trampoline Park. I basically broke down and asked her to help me..

I started with two PT sessions, HIITSTEP and trampolining every week... I started to feel better in myself physically and emotionally after 4 weeks and felt I could handle a lot more than I normally would. I didn't see any change in my weight but I changed mentally and started to sleep better instead of staying up till gone 2am and back to work early the next morning..

I have a little boy with special needs and my daily routine can be quite challenging with a full time job also...... with exorcise I felt I could cope so much better and felt alive. I felt I could run after him quicker and work the hours I needed to do.

I'm not good with change but Annelies as made me feel liberated and I feel I've found myself again.. I've always given my time to my children and home life which I still do, but I now find the time for ME, more importantly I look after my Health and feel I'm doing something solely for me....and also be around a lot longer for My Son's.

If you don't look after yourself, how can you look after anyone how I think now. I'm stronger than before physically and emotionally.

Annelies is a great role model, motivational, energetic, supportive, great listener. Listened to all my problems, me moaning and saying "I can't do it" when training. She's pushed me and pushed me and gave me that motivation ...that I can do it!!! I would of never of done so much training if I went to the gym. I would of given up as soon as I lost my breath...

I asked her "why does training not get any easier?"...her response "because I push you more every week and you do alot more in a short space of time, than you did before now"

Annelies has such a great attitude and is the most supportive PT /teacher/friend who helps me do things I never thought I could do. So if you're thinking of changing your mind set and seeing the inches fall off, she's the one to go to!

When that weight doesnt come off as fast as you want it to. Think.....

Muscle V's Fat = inches/great mind/positive attitude same weight but different You!!!

Up to now I've lost 15 inches and over a stone. I won't give up now and still a long way to go but wanted to share how amazing Annelies is and how far we've come.

I've been trying to lose weight for a while but never found the right diet or exercise. I then found about about FOCUS on ME. It was a 6 week programme with 3 sessions a week. It was so challenging but i kept pushing myself with the massive help from Annelies. She is a fantastic Personal Trainer and I can't thank her enough.

I really enjoyed it throughout the weeks and started to feel better within myself. I was eating better, sleeping better and doing a lot more exercise. By the end of the programme I managed to lose 8.3 inches from my body, my BMI came down and I'd built up some muscle. I am so happy with what I have achieved in just 6 weeks.

Thank you so much Annelies.


Stacey, 31


I signed up to this 6 week programme not really knowing what to expect. I had tried every other avenue of diet and exercise but nothing had worked.


Every aspect of it was hard but so rewarding. It was 18 sessions, 3 a week for 6 weeks. Every session was different. There was no time to get used to anything as you were always using and working different body parts of your body. Whilst one body part aches, you use another.

In my opinion Annelies is what makes it work. She is such a great Personal Trainer, keeps you focused every step of the way, never lets you give up and doesn't accept the word can't. She is tough but always supportive. Nothing is ever too much. I couldn't recommend this programme enough.

I lost a total of 12.2 inches from my body and i am finally focused. My attitude had changed alot. I have more energy and i sleep better. I enjoy exercise, i never though i'd be saying that!

Thank you
