Anna Reich

 BBWC Head Trainer

This inaugural balanced bodies weight loss camp is the brainchild of Anna Reich - a Cardiff-based personal trainer and the owner of Anna Reich Personal Training.


Anna qualified as a Personal Trainer in 2008 but prior, she worked in public relations in London. Despite “loving the job” and thriving at building strong and trustworthy relationships with the media folk, there was something missing… More squats!


Personal Training enabled Anna to combine her two passions: People and Health.


Since qualifying as a personal trainer, Anna regularly contributes to leading media outlets as well as appearing regularly on TV and Radio in Wales. The cameras are often rolling at her unique studio on the historic Cathedral Road in Pontcanna, Cardiff, a favourite training spot for well-known TV folk and secretive visiting celebrities (such as Alexandra Burke, Lin Manuel Miranda and Lucy Owen!).


“I am passionate about what I do and feel that the more people I can reach and convert to a life of health and fitness, the better. Life can be tough but I am certain that it’s better when you’re fit and healthy. This is everyone’s right!”
