Anne Kantz

Montclair, VA 22025-1046

With 28 years in the fitness industry, I have experienced the joys and challenges of being a group fitness instructor, a personal trainer and fitness director. I am an extremely active mother of four and have enjoyed participating in fitness competitions, programs and activities including, cheerleading, coaching, community fitness benefits and boot camp trainings.
To my surprise, at the age of 41, I was diagnosed with DJD (degenerative joint disease) concentrating on my knees, hips and spine. Upon diagnosis, I decided that this was simply unacceptable!! I needed to prepare for the inevitable by obtaining all the information needed to both prolong my surgery and then, return to function quickly after the surgery.
In the following five years, I proceeded to do research, take workshops/courses and became an ACE certified Advanced Health and Fitness Specialist.
At the age of 46, I had a total hip replacement. When released from physical therapy, I continued to follow my self-designed pre and post rehabilitative programs both on land and in the water. In less than one year’s time, I was participating in most of my past activities. At my current age of 58, I have returned to many of the advanced functions to which I was so accustomed and enjoyed.
So many individuals are in similar situations with limited knowledge and resources. I continue to receive heart-felt satisfaction daily by helping my members and clients overcome their challenges and achieve their goals. Through both land and water personal training, I am lucky to be afforded the opportunity to make this difference in both their lives and mine!

    I have had the pleasure of working with Anne for the past few months. I am amazed at how much stronger I have become since working with her. I highly recommend her.

    Anne Kantz is an outstanding trainer. Over 10 years.ago, my physical therapist recommended Anne to work with me in the pool. Anne cares about her clients. She talks with new clients to learn about their problems, issues, and concerns and what their goals are for taking the class. Anne monitors her students throughout the classes to see if anyone is having problems. If there are concerns, she adjusts the exercises to fit the client’s needs.

    Anne is very energetic and very dynamic and she pushes us individually at our own pace. She has always given us kudos when doing the exercises correctly. Her personality is terrific and she makes us feel good about ourselves even though we may be tired or not at our best. Working with Anne has improved my mobility. When I am away from the class for a while, I recognize that I need to get back to the pool and work with Anne. I do appreciate all she does to help me and I recommend Anne Kantz to anyone who wants to feel better overall but especially physically and mentally.

    Anne is a phenomenal trainer and genuinely cares about your health and fitness goals. Anne goes above and beyond in terms of helping you achieve your goals. She may send me a good morning text, email articles and or tidbits related to a particular exercise or a gentle nudge to get you in to the gym. Lastly she has a huge heart and beautiful spirit. I'm truly the lucky one to have met her and learn from her. She sets the bar extremely high for other trainers to work towards. I wish her the best!
