Constantly Challenge Yourself
Hey everyone:) I’m Anna Austin and the Co-Founder of S & A Wellness Duo, an all-encompassing health business specializing in hypothyroidism nutrition and fitness, reducing toxins, oxidative stress and inflammation in the body and enabling you to live your most vibrant life yet!!
A little bit about myself - I live in North Carolina and married my best friend, Austin, on October 30, 2015! I am blessed to have a husband who encourages me to reach for my dreams and passions in life:) We have a 4-legged fur-baby, Bucc, who is just as human as we are!! We have a sweet baby girl who we welcomed into this world early 2017 and precious baby boy who we welcomed into this world soon after in 2018!! I am a ASFA Certified Group Fitness and Bootcamp Instructor, and a Certified Personal Trainer through ACE. Working with clients and helping them to break barriers to reach their goals and getting to know them is beyond rewarding and I love what I do!!
I have an array of passions, dreams and aspirations in life and fully intend to chase them down
I graduated from East Carolina University in 2010 with a degree in Marketing. I’ve always been fascinated with marketing & sales, technology and creative branding; with the ever-changing landscape of this industry you can never stop learning, just like the health and fitness industry! I have always had a passion for health, fitness and wellness...along with clothes, shoes & a good glass of wine, of course...and am thrilled to launch S & A Wellness Duo with my mom. Trust me, it has been a long time coming! Knowing we wanted to share our journey, as well as help others who may suffer from our same issues, we FINALLY had the amazing idea of S & A Wellness Duo – a Mother-Daughter team – Susan, my mom, who specializes in nutrition and is a Certified Health Coach, and myself, an all-fitness lover Group Fitness Instructor & Personal Trainer.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism at the age of 11 and being able to maintain a healthy weight has always been a struggle for me...a roller coaster ride to be exact...along with weight management, I also have issues with low energy, adrenal fatigue and crazy food allergies:) So needless to say, a healthy lifestyle and fitness have played a HUGE role in my life. I love trying out new workouts and am game for any challenge that keeps my body and muscles guessing and keeps fitness a fun and enjoyable part of my life. Having gone through so many trials and errors of what works, and what doesn't work for me, makes me grateful to be able to share that with others. Our journey will never be over, but I am so excited to be sharing it with you! Any advice or suggestions I can give that will help someone will always be my greatest feeling of accomplishment. To me, you can never stop learning when it comes to nutrition and fitness, so in turn, you can never stop helping.
