I cant thank you enough for keeping me on the straight and narrow through all this. I was in the worst place and am so in your debt where you have changed my life for the better and continue to do so. I never thought this would be a way to change my life, but our sessions each week really have made a difference and knowing i can text you anytime to keep me on track is the best. I bet when you started coaching you didn't realise how much of an impact you'd have on people, but when i say you have saved me from myself i really mean it. I would have become a terrible mum, person and friend without your support, never forget the impact you have on peoples lives and when i send the same stats in each week, don't feel deflated as you help me in ways you'll never know. You honestly are a lifesaver and i wanted to let you know what that means to me xx

I started with Annabelle in June 2021, and since that time my only regret is not starting sooner. To know there is someone at the other end of the phone I can message my achievements, my bad days, help with eating out choices and weight loss wins at any time or day is first-class. I know the things Annabelle has taught me are going to stick with me for life, not just whilst I’m dieting. Thank you always to the most caring, positive, marvellous Annabelle!!
(-4 stone down)
I first met Annabelle in 2018 when for medical reasons I needed to lose a load of weight, and thought it was completely in impossible, as I’d always been on the larger side. Annabelle not only helped me to achieve a
6 stone weight loss in a year, but taught me so much about food, nutrition, and my own body. But she doesn’t just look at what you’re eating, and what your weight/body measurements are, she assesses the whole situation, what’s going on in your world that will affect your progress and results. She’s always available to answer any questions you have no matter how small. I’ve worked with a lot of coaches for various things in my time but I’ve never met anyone who’s coaching style is as brilliant and as successful as Annabelle’s. She’s taught me so much that I’ll never go back to eating or thinking about food and exercise in the same way I used to. My only regret is not meeting Annabelle sooner, she’s just amazing.
I’ve been working with Annabelle for a few years now and honestly couldn’t ask for anything more from a personal trainer. Her dedication to your goals & attention to detail, whilst pushing you to give your best really does mean you achieve great things! Annabelle ensures that you never get bored with the programmes she carefully designs for each individual, even after all these years my programmes are always varied and perfectly planned to match with what I want to achieve. Annabelle has also given me excellent advice with regards to several injuries I’ve had and always managed to keep me training without jeopardising recovery. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Annabelle.
I have my demons and still fall
back on them occasionally but
i have learnt my old way of
living wasn't making me happy.
If I didn't have to check in with
you regularly no doubt they
would have taken over...
Having our calls and check ins
provides a point of reference
which makes me feel like i
have to do better. I have been
honest about the good and
bad days, but the calorie help
doesn't equate to the mental help
you've given me.
One day I will post a picture
of me when I reach my goal
and it will say how this woman
overcame so much more than
just trying to lose weight and
i can tell people that even with depression you can overcome
what is thrown at you. This day
will be the best day for me
and keeps me going

Thank you! I'm feeling and looking great, so thank you so much for your support! Its really worked... I have learnt so much about nutrition and lifestyle from you and feel really confident to manage this myself now..

It's definitely not a 'one size fits all' approach with Annabelle. She really listens and created a personalised plan to help me achieve my goals. Regular check ins and motivational messages also help keep me on track. Nutrition is clearly a passion for Annabelle and i have found the whole experience of working with her to be educational, empowering and inspiring. Thank you xxx
What can i say? Annabelle is amazing and knows her stuff! I used to think that eating less and exercising more was the right thing to do, but I was so wrong and that's where this lovely gentle lady came into my life and changed my way of thinking. I now flip to and from Annabelle when i need some more help and guidance and she is always happy to help. Thank you x

Wow!! Thanks for my plan, you did work hard, that's almost an essay just for me thanks so so much. I trust you, even though I cant get my head around some of what you are saying.
After years of trying so many
different diets, including the
“big names”, I decided I needed
to do a program specifically for
me! Someone suggested I contact Annabelle, and I’m so glad I did!
In the first six months I’ve learnt
about food, the importance of
water and mental well being.
I’ve lost more weight in this time
than I ever had and I’m enjoying
food and exercise.
Annabelle has been there to
support me every step of the way!
I’ve tried many diets over the years
and to be honest I managed to
loose some weight but always
plateaued and what I found was I
was very confused when it came
to foods / good foods and how
to implement it into a lifestyle.
With Annabelle’s plan I learnt so
much about good foods that
managed to make it a lot simpler
to stay on track. I also learnt a lot
about how my body works. All of
this is why I think it was successful
for me.. That and Annabelle’s
coaching calls- which with a call to
be accountable instead of a
group meeting where I can hide in the
corner, I managed to reach my goal!
I have worked with Annabelle
Smith off and on for years. As a
distance runner and cyclist she has helped me to achieve so many of
my goals, and helped me change
my approach to sports nutrition.
She listens to my concerns and
busy schedule and sets achievable
plans. Her refreshing approach to coaching and nutrition works well
for me as no foods are banned, but she’ll also be honest and give me a
‘kick up the bum’ when I need it!
She seeks to educate about food choices rather than preach, so if
you want that G&T on a Friday
night you can have it, but you understand the calories it has in it.
As a working mum she also
understands the juggle it can be to
train and stick to plan around
family life. Annabelle really knows
her stuff, and I have since gone on
to recommend her to several of
my friends and family who have all
had amazing success with her
approach to coaching.
I attended personal training with Annabelle for quite a few years,
she is fab!
Very reliable, always on time, and
always delivered the drive I needed.
She is extremely knowledgeable,
and would always work with any
injuries I had.
I felt comfortable training with her,
and gave me the confidence I
needed if I ever attended the gym
on my own.
Polite and honest person, and I
would not hesitate to use her
services again in the future.
I’ve been using Annabelle’s services maybe slightly different to most as I have been trying to find ways to put on muscle/weight which is learning to accept to eat more. She guided me in ways to slowly increase calories without feeling guilty and ultimately allowing for muscle to grow. She
was only a message away and
would reply quickly with the
answers I needed even if it was something small and simple
Annabelle has helped me on numerous occasions over the last few years. Firstly, to get back in shape safely after having a baby and more recently with my nutrition to gain more muscle. Annabelle is so knowledgeable and supportive and always has titbits of advice when you need them most. If you are thinking of any sort of lifestyle change then Annabelle is the one to get you there.
Annabelle came recommended to me by a friend. Following two children I needed to lose weight and get back to fitness. Annabelle was so supportive and helped me put in place good eating habits, enjoy exercise again and get the results I wanted. I continue to train with Annabelle working towards my fitness goals and always feel she is rooting for me to succeed in achieving my personal goals.
Annabelle has taught me a lot on
my weight loss journey. I used to
fixate on the number on the scales
but for me now it’s more how I feel
in myself! The scales didn’t really
change much for me but with Annabelle’s help I didn’t quit I kept going & noticed my shape
changed & old clothes started to
feel more comfortable again.
Without her help I’d have given up
& reached for a slice of cake to
make myself feel better.
Annabelle has been a great help
in my attitude to food & exercise.
She’s quick in replying, reliable
Your support and guidance was transformational for me at the time. I had yo-yoyoed all my life before working with you, yet have maintained your results for the last 3 years easily due to the knowledge i learned along the way
I first met Annabelle when she was a PT in my local gym, but due to being pregnant I left. I continued to follow her FB page as I was interested in her experience in post-natal health and nutrition. I quickly realised how like minded we were and how I resonated with every post she posted. It was then I got back in touch with Annabelle to help me lose my baby weight. It was only after a few months that I quickly realised I was in that fad diet cycle, in denial and completely dependent on food to make me emotionally happy. Annabelle not only supports my weight loss journey but helps me to understand why I am the way I am, how fad diets are not the way to eat and the need to drop the unhealthy yo-yo dieting together with thinking that there are ‘bad or naughty foods to avoid. I still have a long way to go but I can see the changes in my thinking and take a positive out of my day rather than see a negative. Annabelle has helped me focus on the foundations of my weight loss which I truly believe is a massive step to sustaining my weight loss in the future.
Annabelle was recommended to
me by a family member as I
was struggling with stomach
related issues and trying to
lose weight. Annabelle just
'got me' and completely
understood how I was feeling
mentally and physically.
With her invaluable knowledge
and experience I felt comfortable following her advice and for the
first time in many years, I am
starting to feel like my old self
again. It was a rocky road to
begin with as my digestive
system was fighting against the
previous years of dieting and if
it wasn't for Annabelle's support,
I would have given up quite early
on but I'm so glad I persevered
as I'm now starting to reap the
rewards - happier digestive system,
less bloated, more energy,
clearer mindset, physically
stronger and losing weight.
Annabelle's a true inspiration and
I'm so glad she is with me on
this journey to a 'healthier' and
Tried diet clubs & been talked to like a 5yr old & had enough?! I had,
then started to work with someone who is a realist, knows what it’s like to juggle work, life & trying to have a healthy lifestyle, dosent judge, has
the patience of a saint and is totally on your side.. Annabelle is just that person you won’t regret it!!
