Climbing Mt. Fuji in Japan, swimming semi-professionally in Australia, or training clients at The Perfect Workout; no matter what she’s doing, Anna Rahim throws herself into it with passion and enthusiasm. If you stop by The Perfect Workout’s Mission Valley studio, you’ll know Anna – she’s the fun, vivacious one with the cheerful Australian accent.
Fitness has been in Anna’s blood since childhood. From the age of six, she swam for ten years in her native Australia, even competing against future Olympians. After training clients and teaching fitness classes in Australia and Japan, Anna was planning her move to the U.S. and wanted to continue her career as a Personal Trainer.
“When I heard about The Perfect Workout, it made sense to give it a try!” Anna says. “I stopped my other fitness activities and focused only on slow-motion strength training. I was absolutely amazed by the results! I'm the strongest I've ever been and I've learned the most effective workout that I can. I will do it for the rest of my life.”
Anna had acquired multiple certifications in personal training, fitness instructing and boxing/kickboxing and added slow-motion strength training to her repertoire. Anna came on board with The Perfect Workout, and went through the rigorous in-house training program. “This was definitely one of the hardest certifications I’ve had to get, and it’s the one I’m most proud of.”
Her enthusiasm rubs off on her clients and Anna has already helped produce a number of success stories. “One woman shared with me that her husband told her this morning, ‘Wow! Your legs look great!’ Another client went to dinner and took off her jacket, and her friends couldn’t believe her new look, saying, ‘Look at your arms! What are you doing?’ That kind of feedback is what I like most about my job.”
Working with clients 1-on-1 is amazing for Anna. “I get to develop deep connections with my clients that turn into incredible friendships. I get to do that while helping them reach their goals, it's the best! It’s hard work but it’s fun and rewarding!”
