Jane Fonda aerobic workouts, and competitive body building in the late eighties, sparked my health and fitness path in Melbourne Victoria.
In 1990 I moved to the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise, where I worked in gyms and gained experience writing and teaching members their training programs. As the Health and Fitness industry boomed in Australia, a new exciting job tile and career path was created. This led me to become a qualified personal fitness trainer.
My first career highlight happened in 1991, when I trained the movie star Christopher Lambert. He came out to the Gold Coast to star in a movie called Fortress. Christopher was famous for his roles in such movies as Greystroke the legend of Tarzan and Highlander.
To further my career in 1996 I moved to Double Bay in Sydney for a year, and trained high profile clients such as Fashion Designer Alex Perry, and the late Princess Diana, when she stayed at the Ritz Carlton. Having gained a successful reputation in Sydney as a ‘trainer to the rich and famous’ I returned home Main Beach on the Gold Coast, where I specialized in client home workout programs.
In 1997 created a small business called Breath Is Life Productions. Together with my mother we produced 2 successful Australian Yoga Video’s. Yoga Breath is Life and the Intermediate Yoga Breath is Life 11. ‘Yoga Breath Is Life was Australia’s Best Selling Yoga Video in 1998.’ I cannot remember the reason, but I needed to take a break from personal fitness training. In this time I married, divorced, and dabbled in Art.
In 2013 and in my mid-forties, I became obsessed with ageing and was determined to age feeling my personal best, and I am. My fascination with “ageing well” lead me to re-invent myself once again. I became a published author of a book called Keep Life Simple. An Easy-To-Read Book on Anti-Aging for Today’s Modern Woman. Publisher’s website: http: //sbprabooks.com/AnnetteSpanski
Today l am a personal health, fitness and well-being trainer for mature aged women. I am also a qualified Meno – Fitness Coach. I named my new lifestyle Keep Life Simple (KEEP making LIFE changes that are SIMPLE). My social media includes a Facebook Keep Life Simple page, Instagram @keeplifesimpleas and this Website www.keeplifesimple.com.au
Every day I am blessed to experience the amazing benefits of Keep Life Simple… life is amazing!
