About Annette

My name is Annette Knoll and I became a personal trainer in my early 40s after falling in love with lifting weights and finally figuring out how to change me body with weight training. I earned my original certification with ISSA and then wanted to take my career up a level by getting certified with one of the top agencies to certify personal trainers, ACE. I have also completed several other major certifications to compliment my original certification, which include Specialist in Fitness Nutrition, Weight Management Specialist and Sport's Conditioning Specialist. I believe that knowledge is power and therefore I continue to increase my knowledge to be a better trainer for my clients.

I specialize in group trainings and have trained as many as 10 people in a group setting. I love creating unique workouts that keep you engaged and help you learn to love training as much as I do.

I trained bootcamps for several years and love that experience and teaching people yo understand what they physically can do!

My Goal especially with women is to teach them to lift just like the guys do. Lift heavy and lift hard in order to sculpt a beautiful physique.

My Nutrition theory is to EAT!! I never preach starvation or deprivation. I teach you what to eat and when to help you boost your metabolism. You shouldn't have to starve to lose weight. You don't need to do crazy diets! You can actually eat and lose weight and build muscle. Yes, there is a way and it just takes you putting in the work to get where you want to be.

I love teaching people and learning what makes people tick.

I offer training in my home for clients in this area and I also offer ONLINE training programs for people who are not in my area.
