Anne is the owner of The Finchley Weight Loss Centre, where she helps busy people lose weight, but more importantly keep it off once and for all.

While working in the corporate world, she struggled with her own weight, and had no clue how to integrate healthy eating and regular exercise with her crazy schedule.

After retraining as a personal trainer, she vowed to help those people that are struggling with the same issues she was herself.

She devised the B.E.A.M.S system which forms the core of all her programmes.
By following the system, her clients learn how to change their habits around food, exercise and lifestyle, while improving their mind-set for long term success.

She has different programmes available, You can contact her through her website on www.barnetpersonaltrainer.co.uk

Healthfriends offers to our users the opportunity to put questions to consultants, clinicians and wellbeing experts in order to obtain information and support. Please read and take note of the following important points:

- Responses from clinicians should be used as an adjunct to the care given by your doctor, nurse or other clinician and should be discussed with them before you take any action.

- Our clinicians and experts do not have access to your full medical history and are not in a position to, and do not, provide a specific opinion or advice about your particular case or healthcare need.

- Before you make any changes to your treatment or care please discuss them with your GP.

Questions will be responded to within two working days on most occasions. If our clinician is on leave or not able to respond within this time a notice will be placed at the bottom of the clinician's profile.
