Hello! My name is Annie and I am a Certified Personal Trainer. I am extremely passionate about fitness and helping others become healthier and happier versions of themselves! I am eager to provide you with the best workout experience where I will design workout plans specifically tailored to meet your goals and track your progress for you. I like to focus on endurance, strength training, HIIT, and bodybuilding exercises which will help you get lean and obtain the muscle definition you've always wanted!
I have experience running half-marathons and would be able to develop an effective plan for you to complete a running race, whether it is your first one or your 10th. I include stretching and recovery exercises to help maintain healthy muscles, bones and joints. Another expertise of mine is roller derby, as I skated for the Tallahassee Rollergirls, Denver Roller Derby, and Tampa Roller Derby. I was a head trainer for Tampa's team, and would be able to help you learn new skills or design workouts tailored to help improve your game!
I love a great challenge and will work diligently to motivate you to progress towards your health and fitness goals. I look froward to working with you soon!

My training experience
I love personal training because I love to work one-on-one with people. I love to motivate others and keep them accountable, so I am always checking in on you about food and exercise. I have personal training experience at gyms and on my own, travelling to clients or meeting them at a local park. I really try to make the experience 100% unique and personalized to each person so that they are happy and set up for success!

Annie is a wonderful trainer and I would highly recommend her! She shows up at my house at 5:30 (that’s AM people!) and is always cheerful and smiling (even when I’m not!). ;). She changes up the workout each time so you don’t feel like you’re doing the same thing over and over again, and will really listen and take your feedback into account when designing and tailoring the workout to you. I always end her sessions tired (in a good way!) and with a sense of accomplishment. And did I mention she’s wicked smart?! Give her a try. You and your body won’t regret it!
I couldn't be happier with Annie as my trainer. She's very hands on and helps me keep track of my diet and exercise goals. I've been training with her for a few weeks now and I've lost some weight, can do exercises easier than when I first started, and have felt an increase in speed with my half marathon training. She never makes me feel bad if I can't do a certain exercise and is really good about either scaling it down or finding an alternative move. She's very encouraging and pushes just the right amount to where you want to keep going and don't feel overwhelmed. She's very flexible with scheduling sessions which is great when my schedule gets a little crazy. I would give ten stars if I could!
I'm not fond of training at all nor a great morning person. So I really appreciate that Annie works with me, my style, and my pace. This makes me want to continue training and pursuing my health goals. I also really appreciate that my schedule as crazy as it gets doesn't deter Annie from sticking with me. I've had other personal trainers that bombed because of these things. In addition, I don't feel intimidated nor pressured in any of our sessions to injure myself or buy any materials. No sales pitches here! Definitely no weird ass contracts at the gym :)
I highly recommend Annie has a trainer. She is personable and kind, and will work with you to create workout plans that are tailored to your needs. Whether you find working out to be daunting and foreign or whether you need a trainer to challenge you, Annie will be supportive, meet you where you are and help you progress to your personal goals. I felt as a client reassured having Annie has my personal trainer. And have been very satisfied with our partnership and my growth as it relates to my physique and knowledge about fitness.
I’ve been training with Anne for about a year and I would HIGHLY recommend her! Very knowledgeable, friendly and most of all motivating. Helps me with short and long term goals for my individualized health plan; pushes me every week to be better. Always comes to our sessions with different exercises and explains everything thoroughly!!
My fiance and I have been working with Annie for a few months, and we are so glad we did. She is easy to work with and willing to adjust workouts to your needs and limitations. I would absolutely recommend Annie to anyone that asks.
Annie is a great trainer. She has a good intuition for when you push me and when I really need a break. She's able to adapt exercises/workouts based on feedback I give her about how I feel doing the workouts or any issues my body is having on any given day. Above all, she is a kind person and wonderful to work with!
