My name is Anna Maria Lang and I am an advocate for body diversity and your qualified guide, writer, mentor and coach. Battle Babes Fitness was founded out of my passion for body diversity, writing and helping women to lose weight off their minds to love their body and find a sense of peace. I have been super fit in the Army as a paratrooper and high level runner and super unfit due to injuries and life challenges while overcoming an eating disorder. I know what it is like to be on the full spectrum of sizes and the stresses that comes with, especially the internal and external judgement, stepping into a gym or getting started with a fitness program. I understand what it is like to have the pressure in your 40’s to look like you are in your 20’s even when faced with an accumulation of injuries, life’s challenges, early menopause and long-term damage from dieting in my 20’s. Body love and peace are needed more now than ever. It is time for women to stop comparing themselves and start loving what they have now. It is the time for freedom and giving up obsessing over looks to drive your fitness and making peace and love your key focus.
“Welcome to your magazine and coaching where you get to find peace and feel loved and accepted regardless of your body shape or size”
I am a published author and weight, body image and fitness for joy specialist. I am a Counsellor, previously a Personal Trainer, currently a Master NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Practitioner, Master Results Coach, Body Positivity Coach, Mind, Body, Eating Coach and specialist in human behaviour. I’ve been faced with weight concerns and am on the journey understanding how difficult it can be with societal pressures, external limitations and self imposed limiting beliefs. I know things can happen to take you out of the game and I am here to help you get in it or back in it while releasing the pressures placed upon you by others or you to win this war hands down.
“I want to see you love your body now, as life is too short to spend it doing anything but that”
Before establishing Battle Babes Fitness, I served nine years in the Australian Army and became a paratrooper and achieved high levels of fitness and have since run half marathons. I achieved running 200 km in a month challenge while having to overcome many obstacles and personal challenges to get there. I know what it is like to go to extremes with your body and I know the impact of long-term pressures on your body while being healthy is imperative and being free internally is essential. You don’t need to punish your body into looking a certain way – you can achieve your goals and do it from a position of power and mental fitness that entails body diversity and body love now. Trust me – I know!
“I have a dream and that dream includes your success”
My vision is to assist millions of women to lose mental weight, find love and peace over their body and shape up in a way that suits their values (not by society’s standards). It is to guide and inspire them to live the life of their dreams now. Battle Babes Fitness is cutting edge when it comes to weight, body image and mental fitness. Mental fitness doesn’t have anything to do with body shape or size – it is all about your ability to love your body and find peace in this war. I include all women in this mission, as all women deserve to be represented. I have been on the full spectrum of sizes and know what it is like.
Your health and weight are important to me because they may be running your life in ways that might be holding you back from what you truly want in life. I understand where you are, where you may have been and where you are going. You don’t need to damage your metabolism in the process of pleasing the world and being thin, you can achieve what you want while being mentally fit to create love and peace regardless of your age, shape or size. I can assist with your goals and finding love and peace over your body, for the life you always dreamed of, regardless of your body shape or size.
