About Annie

I am a mom of an active daughter. I have been training since the time I got my certification, in person and online. I focus on building functional fundamentals with my clients that are important to them in their daily lives and also to build strength, mobility and flexibility. I definitely thrive on my clients enjoying their workouts AND seeing results - changing their body composition and mental and emotional disposition. I am invested in my clients - they are my friends first, then my client.

My favorite client story

I have helped a 60 year old to change her "I can't" to "I can". She had mentioned several times that she was doubtful that she could do some movements that I'd tell her to do. In the end, she did with just a tad encouragement. I love picking people up and change their minds about their "I can't".

My favorite exercise

It's got to be the bear plank. So much goes into that motion and so much progression is possible with that basic motion to give clients a solid core and full body workout.

My favorite quote

Do it Afraid.

My training philosophy

Fundamentals then Progression...Appropriate regressions are necessarily in order for the body to know that's its doing and build strength and precision again.

My training experience

I have worked with clients over old as 78 and as young as 18 years olds.
I have also worked with clients post injury and post-rehab.
