I'm an adventurous introvert from Vancouver, Washington who lives on sleep + "me time." I'm a lover of lifting weights, dinosaurs, real talk and traveling with my husband. I am here to help you move better, lift more, bust the myths of the fitness industry, and inspire you to love the process.

Hey you,

The name's Annie & you're reading my thoughts. Let's get acquainted.

Torres del Paine is iconic. It, and Fitz Roy are likely what most people think of when they hear “Patagonia.” And that’s for good reason. The three peaks of TDP combined with the surrounding mountains, lakes and wildlife make this a truly memorable location. I can’t dive into the details of hikes, park entrance fees, […]

Patagonia Torres del Paine Travel Guide by Annie Miller

Today’s episode is specifically speaking about a strength or hypertrophy based program. The honorable mention will cover conditioning if that is a part of your program, but this assumes that you have an aerobic base to work with when it comes to your strength training. If you lack an aerobic base, that would need to […]

5 aspects of any good training program

Our sole purpose for coming to El Calafate was to visit the world known Perito Moreno Glacier. Let me just say, this beast is more magnificent in real life than you can even imagine inside your brain. First off, you have to get to El Calafate. Which can happen many different ways. You can drive, […]

Perito Moreno Glacier with Annie Miller

El Chalten was way cuter than I had envisioned. It comes out of nowhere as you make your way in, through the vast barrenness that is Patagonia (outside of the main attractions). We drove in from Chile Chico. The drive was like all of our drives during our 22 Day Patagonia Road Trip…boring. But oh […]

views of driving into El Chalten with Annie Miller

Today’s episode is one that you need to take with a grain of salt. These lessons are very personal to me, but may apply to you, so don’t think that just because I found one of these distracting and un-useful, that it must be distracting and un-useful for you. Always stay true to you, your […]

There are the most hiking options around El Chalten. It’s not called the hiking capitol of the world for nothing. Considering Nate and I are not die hard hikers, we chose carefully. And of course, Fitz Roy was a nonnegotiable for us. In our research, we found that you can either start the Fitz Roy […]

Hiking Fitz Roy with Annie Miller

Today we get to bro out a bit. To talk shop in the gym. Covering the mistakes people could be making. I often find that people could get way more from their training than they do with a few simple changes to their time in the gym. That is literally why I created fitdesignbyannie years […]

3 mistakes you're making in your strength training with Annie Miller of the fitsPRO podcast

Honestly I see no need to ever visit Chile Chico in your entire God-given life on this planet. But, we went as part of our 22 Day Patagonia Road Trip. Thus, I am sharing our insights with you. I mean, you can’t deny the beauty of Chile Chico and the surrounding lakes. Patagonia truly is […]

Beautiful views of Chile Chico Patagonia by Annie Miller

The relationship I want to discuss today is one that I have lived. I have been aware of this but didn’t put an actual name to it until Dr. Sean Pastuch brought it to my attention during my appearance on the Active Life Podcast. And he said it came from Adee Cazayoux. I am not […]

relationship between error, quality and success with Annie Miller of the fitsPRO podcast

Most people who know about Patagonia have no idea that Bariloche even exists. Which is a shame, because it’s gorgeous. San De Carlos Bariloche is located in the very northwest area of Argentinian Patagonia. It’s a lake town to put it mildly. You can take this however you please, but Bariloche is CLEARLY a German […]
