Anneke (pronounced like Monica without the M) graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from the University of Utah. While completing all of the pre-requisites to enter medical school she began to exercise to minimize the stress that came with having a full-time job, being a full-time student and to control unwanted weight gain. It was then that she realized that with her medical education she wanted to have a career that focused her time on health and wellness as opposed to sickness and disease. Anneke made a slight course adjustment after 5 years in the medical field and she found her true passion helping people with their health through physical fitness and proper nutrition.
Anneke became a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine in 2013. Since her certification she has spent countless hours, in the gym and online, training a variety of wonderful clients. She is also a certified USPA Powerlifting instructor.
Anneke’s main goal with all of her clients is to help them to see the true strength that each and every person has inside of them. She believes that you can achieve anything that you set your mind to if you just work for it!
She is an elite level, nationally qualified raw powerlifter and NPC Bikini Competitor. Anneke lives near Salt Lake City, UT with her husband, Ryan, her son, Miles, and their bulldog, Rooney. As a new mother, she stays busy between keeping up with Miles, running all of the behind the scenes work for Fitbliss, and coaching clients & herself in the gym.
