Anna is warm and easy to talk to. She is an engaging but highly flexible trainer. She adjusted her training session to just the right amount of intensity after learning that I have a race coming up soon. After some basic warm ups, she quickly spotted my weakness, i.e. balance, and spent most of the training session on improving my balance. She seemed to have endless tricks up her sleeve and pulls out new workout ideas like a magician. The workouts were perfect, they did not tire me out, but improved my balance. ~ Dan Li

Anna is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm she brings to every session. Her easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. She designs each workout to be challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! She incorporates moves into each workout to improve my performance in my other sports.   She also places a high value on correct form with each exercise. My energy, balance and flexibility have improved immensely. All of this has translated into faster running times and better performance in my favorite sports: water skiing, snow skiing and tennis.~ Sue Pickrell

“Anna was a phenomenal coach while I was working with her. We worked on body weight movements, kettlebell abilities, and other strength focused activities. She also helped me work through injuries by finding modifications and adjustments that kept my rehab on track.”~ Paul G.

“Coach Willard is a positive force of motivation and expertise, and I have the most fun working with her. She is helping me get started with dead-lifts and kettlebell swings, and I am loving it. She also introduces progressively more challenging exercises, and inspires me to push myself. I have some physical limitations, and appreciate the care with which she plans each session to fit what my body can handle that week. She is attentive, watching closely for form, and is great at communicating how to do each exercise safely. I have made much progress in the few weeks I’ve worked with her, and am ready for more!” ~ Leah G.

 

“I started working with Anna several years back after I started going to the gym on a consistent basis. Unfortunately, I was overloaded on cardio which was great for weight loss perspective but not a particularly balanced approach. Together we worked on a plan to dial back the cardio and introduce strength training to assist my new-found interest in running.” ~ Eric Hanson

 

 

 

“Anna is awesome!! She is very motivating, keeps workouts fun and varied (no boredom here!) and challenges you to do more as she works with you to achieve the goals you define together. Anna keeps her clients accountable and on the right path. She helped me move from rehab after multiple knee surgeries to real strength and overall fitness (and got me hooked on kettlebells and strength). And it’s not just about the workouts — Anna coaches the whole person. She is encouraging, caring and can adjust on the fly for injuries, sore muscles, etc. I highly recommend Anna to anyone who wants to make real change in his/her life.” ~ Becky G.

“Anna was my personal trainer for four years. We met weekly and she was constantly teaching me new exercises that kept each session challenging and fun. Her pleasant personality and knowledge made it easy to trust and follow the exercises. She was also very good at tailoring the workouts to meet whatever temporary limitations I had. While recovering from a frozen shoulder she incorporated exercises that helped speed along my recovery, for which I am very grateful.” ~ Gary K.
