you're on 

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.

The art of story telling for content and sales. Something I say often is that content is everywhere and everything can be content. I also think marketing is everywhere and it behooves us as entrepreneurs to always be observing it. Most of us spend a lot of time consuming – be it via direct marketing […]

Pricing is one of the biggest roadblocks that new and old coaches run into. Not knowing what to charge, and having mindset blocks around different price ranges. Along with not knowing whether to grandfather people, and when they want to increase their prices, or even how to increase their prices.  That’s what we are going […]

We ended part 1 as we arrived to the hospital in active labor, and my utter misconception of what that would look like. If you missed it please be sure to listen to 193 before tuning into this episode. If you don’t, I’ll just make clear again that this is MY STORY and no one […]

Courses I took: MamaSteFit Birth Prep, Pain Free Birth, Christian Hypnobirthing. Most important questions asked throughout all of these courses was: How I wanted to feel in my labor process? And values I wanted held in my birthing space. It was extremely important to me to not have fear or external pressure enter my birth […]

Bébé Miller Birth Story Part 1 with Annie Miller

Lifting weights is the best. You know this is my philosophy – that weight lifting and movement is not a season, but something we ideally take part in until our days come to an end. Muscle mass is king, and mobility is arguably also king. We can get both of these via strength training. BUT, […]

192 - What Are Lifting Ratios & Do They Matter?  with Annie Miller

how to choose the right business mentor with Annie miller

I remember saying during my internship at University of Portland to the head coach, I don’t know sports. I don’t know positions, or what people should be doing. So I questioned my ability to be a strength coach. And Bradford Scott essentially said to me that we are more so in the business of optimizing […]

190 | Lessons From Watching UFC, Crossfit, and The Olympics with Annie Miller

In many contexts, we hear that less is more. You say it in health and fitness all the times. Focusing on small daily habits that stack up rather than trying to do it all at once. In my experience I’m juggling college, internships, working full-time, and life in general to growing my business, focusing on […]

188 | How To Focus On Less & Get More Done In 2023 with Annie Miller

I adore the topic of this episode. The idea of lifting technique is the literal reason I created Movement 101 in 2017 after rehabbing from a back injury that happened during squatting back in 2014-ish. Now, I would be lying if I said that this back injury didn’t lead to me becoming a bit of […]
