About Anna Gora Personal Trainer

Passion. Experience. Results. Fitness is not about obsessing over the number on the scale or punishing your body. It has never been about crash diets, food fads or dodgy supplements. Fitness is about becoming the best version of yourself. I will help you smash your goals and discover your true potential! AREAS OF EXPERTISE Weight loss and general fitness Losing weight and improving your fitness takes time, effort, and determination. Truth is, it can be tricky to constantly keep a positive mindset, stay highly motivated, choose the right workouts and follow nutrition plans that tick all the boxes. But you do not have to do it alone. I will help you navigate your fitness journey, so you avoid common mistakes, get in the best shape of your life, and achieve the body you have always wanted! Injury and pain prevention and management Lower back pain? Problematic knees? Strained shoulder? Modern lifestyle is not easy on our joints and muscles, but you do not have to suffer. The right type and amount of corrective exercise can do wonders to your strength, mobility, and quality of life. With the right approach, you can treat your issues and prevent them from happening again. I will help you find the right ways to manage your aches and pains so you can move and feel better. A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF ‘Food is the most abused anxiety drug. Exercise is the most underutilized antidepressant.’ MY STORY Why did I become a fitness coach? Let me take you back in time. I grew up in the 90s, the golden era of 'heroin chick' look. Do you remember these pictures of ill-looking models plastered all over the place? My teenage body did not look like that. At all. And that constant feeling of not being thin enough was slowly destroying me. I was struggling with weight fluctuations, comfort eating and severe bouts of depression. I could not find my place. My sense of self-worth was quickly disappearing. Then I got myself into competitive sports. And I discovered something. It was not just my body that got stronger and healthier - my mental well-being also started rapidly improving. Exercise helped me become more mindful, less anxious, and more in control of my negative emotions. For the first time in my life, I could switch off the noise in my head. I quickly fell in love with fitness and I believe that this passion turned my life around for the better. To this day I have not found an activity that would bring me more clarity, peace and satisfaction than working out. I became a personal trainer to promote the benefits of being active and to help people discover their true potential. Seeing my clients succeed gives me the greatest satisfaction! MY VEGAN JOURNEY Believe it or not, I used to absolutely love cheese and I could not imagine my life without a milky coffee. Everything changed when I lost a bet to my vegan sister. She decided that my ‘penalty’ would be to switch to a plant-based diet for a month. No more cheese. No more milk. You will not regret it, she said. I was quite sceptical, but I accepted the challenge and gave it a try. Rules are rules, right? To my surprise, I quickly discovered how easy it was to change my lifelong habits. And I absolutely fell in love with the taste of vegan food. More importantly I experienced a remarkable improvement to my physical health. I could finally ditch the medications for my digestive conditions. I felt lighter, happier, less bloated, and more energetic. Even my persistent skin problems started slowly disappearing. Deeply inspired by such a positive experience, I started actively seeking information about the vegan movement. What I learned helped me fully realize the horrifying extent of animal abuse and environmental degradation. I decided that I did not want to take part in this ongoing destruction of our planet. The challenge has never stopped. I have been a passionate vegan for nearly six years now and I am fully convinced I will stay plant-based for the rest of my life! KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE I am a firm believer in science and evidence-based approach to nutrition and exercise. I spent many years meticulously researching the effects of diet and physical activity on health and well-being. My professional qualifications include: • MSc with distinction in Nutrition, Physical Activity and Public Health – University of Bristol • BSc with distinction in Nutrition – University of Warsaw • Advanced Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training (level 2 and level 3) • Advanced Diploma in Fitness Testing (CPD) • Diploma in Functional Resistance Training (CPD) • Boxercise® Instructor Diploma But it is not simply just extensive knowledge that makes me stand out as a fitness professional. I have nearly 9 years of professional experience and a proven track record of delivering highly effective personal training sessions to people of all ages and sizes. Throughout my career, I provided services for David Lloyd Leisure, Energie Fitness and Pure Gym, as well as for The Fire Fighters Charity and academic events. Since 2012 I have helped hundreds of people achieve their personal best and I intend to help hundreds more!

Ian N.'s review on Mar 26, 2018

I met Anna while she was working at at David Lloyd Westbury, Bristol I am a cyclist as was keen to work on my core and strengthening. Over a ten week period Anna produced a training programme allowing me to reach my goals including to be able to dead-lift over 100kg (previously 60Kg), which I have been able to maintain. We also worked a lot on stretching which was a weakness of mine. Anna is very professional, but also encouraging and fun to work with and subsequently trained my wife

Ruth D.'s review on Mar 16, 2018

Anna is great - she pushes me but doesn't make me feel awful if I need a break. She chats with me and makes the sessions enjoyable rather than just hard work. Although my weight hasn't adjusted due to my own issues, my body is more toned and I can now see a difference! She is very positive towards me and doesn't allow me to say negative things about myself. I really look forward to our sessions and love how much stronger I am already!

STEPHEN C.'s review on Mar 14, 2018

When comparing when I started at the gym with where I am these days, the personal training was a key factor in achieving this. 15 months have passed since I 'started' as someone that did virtually zero exercise, ate all the 'wrong' foods etc and consequently weighed in at 119 kg @ 172cm; so in a poor condition in many ways to say the least! Starting personal training sessions helped me to move forwards, and Anna understood that at that stage, there were certainly limitations to what I could do but provided support, motivation, 'smart' goals and exercises that were suited to my ability which enabled slow but steady progress; some sessions were harder than others, but I always left the gym feeling that I had moved forward. Now I'm quite 'fit', 84 kg and I fully recommend using Anna as a PT.

Ruth E.'s review on Mar 13, 2018

Anna was a great inspiring & encouraging trainer, she pushed me when she knew I could take it & was able, and then more relaxed when I was not at my best, I would recommend her style and calm manner and personal commitment
