Meet Anka

You are a busy, powerhouse, career go-getter and yet committing time, money, and energy to your health is still a top priority.

And whether you're in excellent shape or just getting started, what matters is that you want to challenge yourself to get stronger and healthier, build muscle, look great, achieve more, and feel really good about yourself.

And I think you know this but ...

There is no magic pill.

The industry lies and tells you there's an instant solution. But really, getting in excellent physical shape takes commitment, discipline, consistency, and focus in all the right places. It's hard work. It takes effort.

But there is one thing that will make it easier. And that's having a no-gimmicks, no deprivation, zero-bullshit GUIDE that will take the guess work out of all this.

I'm Anka. I've been part of the fitness world my entire life, and I know what works.

I am a personal trainer, fitness blogger and former figure competitor. I help people just like you achieve their goals with SANE, SIMPLE and EMPOWERING training programs. My holistic approach blends strength training, nutrition coaching, lifestyle adjustments, and work inside and outside the gym to build (and maintain) a stronger, fitter body, reduce stress, take your confidence through the roof, and empower you to become the most awesome version of yourself.

I'll be honest – you're going to have to do some work. But if you are serious about getting in the best shape of your life, then I can help you DISCOVER all the INCREDIBLE THINGS your body can do, and ensure that you maintain those results long term. I'm not exaggerating when I say that this program can literally change your life. (If you don't believe me, check out the testimonials from my rockstar clients).

Don't wait for tomorrow. Contact me today for a free consultation and let's get ready to work on a better, stronger, fitter you.

More about me

I'm a certified trainer for highly-motivated individuals of all shapes, sizes and ages who want to nail their fitness goals, and realize that hiring a trainer is going to optimize their results and take the guesswork out of getting them.

I was born and raised in Germany, a culture that rewards hard work, dedication and independence. I trained as a competitive gymnast and speed skater, and spent most of my childhood and youth competing at a high level in both disciplines. I fell in love with sport from a ridiculously early age, especially the confidence-boosting aspects. I learned early on that physical fitness can help you actualize your goals in ALL AREAS OF LIFE.

Around 18 years ago (is it really that long?) I moved to the Bay Area where I practiced karate and then 8 years later got into bodybuilding. The culture's pretty different here. You guys taught me so much about the importance of holistic training. I quickly learned just how much you can achieve when your body is in harmony with the mind and soul. I started living a clean, well-rounded and healthy lifestyle, and fused those techniques into my fitness programs. My results improved drastically!

When it comes to personal training, my ethos is pretty simple: no BS quick fixes, just a balanced lifestyle plan based on personal goals and needs. My programs combine the main tool of weight training with calisthenics, plyometrics, nutrition and LIFESTYLE EDUCATION to achieve long-term results. Whether you want to get big and strong, learn about effective weight loss, or simply feel better about your body - I'm here to support you EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

I'm also a fierce advocate for body positivity. I love nothing more than to help people everywhere to discover their strength, realize their potential and take wonderful care of themselves through confident transformational change.

When I'm not lifting, you can find me hiking with my sweet pup, Milo, grabbing a burger at my neighborhood Burgermeister, satisfying my sweet tooth with a chocolate macaroon from 'Hot Cookie' (everything in moderation!) or tackling an ambitious DIY home improvement project. Oh, and I like to be my own guinea pig. Learn more about my personal fitness journey, my AMAZING badass clients, and my favorite products here.

I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
