 Personal training  Philosophy & Mission

Ansha believe every individual is capable of attaining their optimum physical condition, if they are made aware of their potential and how to achieve it.

As a personal trainer, she has worked with clients ages 14 through 79 to help them accomplish things they never thought possible.

We don’t all have the genes to be a super-model, athlete, or bodybuilder, but everyone can improve on what they have.”

Anusha’s  mission as a personal trainer is to educate my clients about exercise, diet, and teach them how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

“My goal is to empower my clients to make the most of their abilities — through knowledge, direction, and encouragement. 

I believe in constantly changing and evolving exercise routines to ensure continual progress and alleviate boredom.”


Personal Training  Service Offered

Anusha explains her services offered

Weight Loss and Body Fat Reduction

I prefer you to think in terms of “fat loss” instead of “weight loss.” The aim of getting in shape is how you look and how healthy you are. The goal should be to get leaner. This means changing your body composition so that you have less fat and more muscle. Since muscle weighs more than fat per cubic measurement, absolute weight loss should not be the sole measure of your success. The important results should be how your body looks, how your clothes fit and how you feel. A visible six pack of abs is only accomplished by both building the abdominal muscles and shedding the fat that covers them up.


The basis for losing body fat is using more calories (an energy value of food), in daily metabolism, activity and exercise than you take in through eating and drinking. It takes about 3500 calories above those utilized to gain one pound of fat. The reverse is also the case. Using up 3500 calories above those taken into your body will cause a reduction of one pound of fat. Therefore, to effectively lose fat, the bottom line is to restrict your calorie intake and increase your calorie output.

Burning Fat through Aerobic Exercise

In addition I work with you on an aerobic exercise program to burn fat and increase your metabolic rate. This is done either on equipment such as Stairmaster, stationary bicycle, treadmill or elliptical machine or skipping. The aim is to sustain the aerobic activity for a minimum of 40 minutes at a time at a moderate intensity of 50 percent to 70 percent of your max heart rate. I will help you establish this intensity level and a program of working toward your goal in increments suitable to your current fitness level. Your weight and aerobic programs will be the cornerstones of your fat loss plan. They are created by your fitness trainer only with you in mind and based on your current condition, goals, schedule, and lifestyle and simply, what will work FOR YOU.

Spot Reduction of Fat

You must remember when embarking upon a fat loss campaign that spot reduction of fat is not possible. Your body gains and loses fat by way of its unique genetic programming. Unfortunately experience and research shows that the first-acquired, and usually largest, fat-deposit areas are the last places that our bodies loose fat. So if you are holding a lot of fat in your mid-section or in your thighs that will likely be the last place you lose it. But don’t despair, you WILL lose it. Sticking with it is the ticket. To help you do this, I also provide motivation and creates a structured program that helps anchor you through a sustained effort.
