If you’re a personal trainer, health coach, strength coach or any type of professional in health and fitness, you hold the same truth as everyone else who is just starting out. We all begin without experience. AND, we all want to feel confident but aren’t always so eager to do what it takes to become […]

How to Feel Confident as a New Trainer or Coach with Annie Miller

Sustainability + discount for you. Here’s zee story: Vooray reached out to me months ago. Though I loved the versatile clean style of their bags, I asked about a more sustainable/organic option. They mentioned that spring 2021 they’d be rolling out a sustainable, eco-conscious collection. To which I said, I AM GAME. So, here we […]

best gym and day bag brand with Annie Miller

Mobility came on the fitness scene in large thanks to CrossFit. Perhaps you disagree or perhaps that is even untrue. But in 2011-2013 CrossFit was booming and thus came a large demand and need for mobility in the fitness industry. People like Kelly Starrett with Supple Leopard, and resources like ROMWOD mobility became more advisable […]

153 | Why Mobility Matters for Hypertrophy or Strength Gains with Annie Miller

3 tips to show up more confidently on video. It’s no secret that Instagram just takes concepts from nearly every mainstream social media app and calls it their own. Instagram stories are no different. They were derived from snapchat. I bring this up because we need to understand the organic nature and purpose of stories […]

what is tempo training and how do you use it with Annie Miller

Especially in the western world, it seems to be preached that more is better – that we should always be after more, that more is to be coveted. Annie’s being philosophical again, watch out. Truly, I know nothing other than what I have experienced. So, that’s the lens I am sharing through. I don’t know […]

more isn't always better with Annie Miller

It’s no secret that since November 2020, Instagram added another type of content for all of us to create and consume. Many people did not get access to this feature for nearly a year to my knowledge. But I believe most users have access to both consuming and creating reels at the time of this […]

All things Instagram Reels with Annie Miller

Anecdotally speaking, Instagram is far less predictable than it used to be. Meaning, back in 2015 when you created “x” piece of content at “y” time of day, you had a fair chance of knowing how that piece of content would perform – how many likes and comments it would get. Gone are those days. […]

what to do when your instagram post tanks with Annie Miller

Leavenworth is a German town at the base of the Alpine region known as the Enchantments in Washington State. We’ve been many times before, but never in February.

Visiting Leavenworth, WA in February with Annie Miller

I read that Lake Chelan is Washington’s hidden gem recently. While we do think it’s a gem, it’s certainly not hidden. Many Washitonians and visitors from other states come during all seasons to experience all that Chelan has to offer. It’s only 1 hour from Leavenworth and 2.5 hours east of Seattle. That’s wildly “out […]
