OFFICIAL EVENT AMBASSADOR
Refreshingly different Lee-Anne Wann is not only highly educated and informed, but the most relevant and trusted health/fitness expert in New Zealand. After Lee-Anne hit the wall from pushing herself to the extreme, she realised that life was not about striving for perfection but about being the best you can be.
That led to further educating herself to ensure she could offer solutions which every day people could relate to and implement themselves independently in their own home at little or no cost. Most importantly it changed Lee-Anne’s thought process and focus so that everything she recommended was centered on one philosophy - keeping it real.
As a sustainable change health practitioner with over 30 qualifications to ensure she is up-to-date with the latest trends, ideas and scientific research, Lee-Anne’s approach is not fad based but one that recognizes that our lives are complicated and busy. Lee-Anne is focused on helping people get back to basics when it comes to health and fitness.
