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.

Single Arm Press (DB) Variations To Try with Annie Miller

It’s no secret that video is the future and now the present of content creation. Nearly every app and platform – search or social based has embraced and even pushed video content. Podcasts, YouTube (obviously), Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, TikTok, everyone. So, being able to speak confidently on camera will most likely be needed. While not […]

How To Speak More Confidently On Camera with Annie Miller

Today’s episode comes from what feels like the expectation even with one on one to have some kind of community aspect (or group program) to your offer. I hope to keep this episode short and sweet, and really just gives you some things to think about in order to determine if you do or don’t […]

167 | To Have a Group Aspect of Your Program or Not? with Annie Miller

Writing an exercise program can be an overwhelming task. And I am convinced that part of this overwhelm is the self-imposed expectation for new fitness coaches to do THE MOST. Take a breath. Do less. Most coaches are out here thinking they need to write a brand new program from scratch for every client on […]

How New Coaches Think They Need To Program with Annie Miller

To batch content simply means process of planning and creating content ahead of the time in which it will be used. You can batch Instagram posts, story videos or slides, youtube videos, podcast episodes, email marketing drips, and the list goes on.

To Batch or Not Batch for Content Creation with Annie Miller

Most people in fitness around the globe recognize that push ups from the toes are harder. But WHY? In short, two things – the upper body is less “elevated” from the toes than from the knees, and more of the body weight is being moved from the toes than the knees (the load is heavier). […]

The Science Behind the Knee Push Up & Why It's Easier with Annie Miller

Want more confident sales? That will likely be a by product of clarity on three things within your offer. Every entrepreneur wants to “sell with ease.” For sales to feel natural and un-forced.

166 | Audience Q&A - Self tanner, online platforms, muscle maintenance

In the same boat as “I want to be toned but not bulky,” we have “I want to build ‘lean’ muscle.” First off – I get what this person desires: I believe it is to have the appearance of muscles at rest without carrying “too much” muscle (whatever that means to this human). But let […]

Is There a Difference Between "Lean" and "Bulky" Muscle? with Annie Miller

The pistol squat is one of those “party trick” fitness movements. Is it something most coaches program for their clients? No. There are simply far more bang for your buck exercises that require far less balance for the goal of gains. However, the pistol squat is a rather advanced movement. Pistol squats – What’s the […]
