Building an online health and fitness was a popular route before 2020. During and after the pandemic it became a GO TO career path for many. But it most certainly isn’t made for everyone. Being an online coach is more accessible than ever – and just as challenging, if not more challenging than it always […]

3 Simple Steps To Building An Online Health And Fitness Business with Annie Miller

Touching on the question – do the same exercises work for building muscle and strength? The fitness industry loves to categorize exercises and approaches to movement as if they are specific to a given result. Rarely does it work that way. A single exercise doesn’t create a training stimulus. All factors – intensity, load, volume, […]

Same exercises work for building muscle and strength? with Annie Miller

There has been a debate for years among strength coaches and personal trainers about whether or not “extra” or defined core work is necessary for both aesthetics and performance.

3 Simple Plank Core Exercise Progressions with Annie Miller

Over the years I have gotten asked several times about what makes the perfect warm-up, or what a warm-up should include for a given day. Just as there are infinite possibilities for exercise selection in the book of a work out, the same is true for a warm-up. So it can be very overwhelming to […]

What goes and doesn’t go on your social accounts? What’s a hard yes and hard no? This is your social media code of conduct and something we define clearly in my FitsPRO Foundations course.

How to Build Your Brand Social Media Code of Conduct with Annie Miller

Did you know you have THREE HEADs to your triceps (cue the name)? The long head is the only head that crosses the shoulder joint while the other two attach to the humerus (upper arm bone). Often referred to as the short head. When you can see the developed musculature, the triceps make a “horseshoe” […]

Three Best Exercises For Triceps with Annie Miller

From 2013 to 2021, finding and linking high quality, simple exercise demo videos in my programs was a TASK. Having them be a female vs male? Even more impossible. If we’re being honest, Marcus Filly’s exercise library has completely carried the fitness industry on it’s back for over a decade. This was a frustration I […]

A Peek At My Last 10 Years Of Life and Biz with Annie Miller

There is no one size fits all for lifting cues. Some thing that will work for you might not work for me. But the goal is always better neuromuscular control, more muscle fiber recruitment, and ideally better movement patterns. That’s what today’s episode is all about. After coaching for a decade in person and online, […]

168 | All Time Fav Lifting Cues And "Tricks" For Better Gains with Annie Miller

If you want “toned” shoulders or “strong deltoids,” then doing some sort of single arm press is something that will likely benefit your training. You have three areas that make up the deltoid muscle. All lay superficially on the shoulder (closest muscle to the skin). These include your anterior (front), medial (middle or lateral) and […]
