About Anna Victoria

The passion to help women change their lives began with my own journey. I began studying and researching everything health- and fitness-related in 2012 before the craze of fitness guides and apps emerged. I researched every topic imaginable as I went through my own fitness journey, looking at all sides of various scientific studies, personal stories and, of course, my own experiences. Now, my focus is on helping women learn how to love themselves, from beginning to end.

Nobody should exercise or eat healthy because they hate their body — everyone should exercise and eat healthy because they love their body. I am determined to show women everywhere how to fuel and nourish their bodies to get the results they deserve, and to look and FEEL their best. A great way to commit to a healthy lifestyle is to find yourself a workout partner. Looking for someone who never cancels, never complains and will motivate you from warm-up to cooldown? Your dog is the best workout buddy you can find. Check out all the fun and safe ways you can get fit with your pup.
