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.
You’ve likely seen or heard of the hierarchy of needs within fitness in some capacity. In my Built by Annie program my clients get access to something called Annie’s Secret Laboratory of Brain Gains. And in that lab, I have a video training on the two hierarchy of needs that I see and use in […]
Get ready for a fitness question/myth busting mash up. This episode is a compilation of fitness related questions I have received over the years or as of lately.

BUT – we need cardio and being conditioned has awesome carry over into lifting more weights. So here we are, talking […]
WHERE IS YOUR PLACE IN THIS FIELD? I am coming at this from the perspective that some of you are trying to find your place as a coach and some of you are trainees. And I honestly think it’s beneficial for coaches to understand WHERE their clients are so they can meet them there. It […]
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST EXERCISES. There are infinite exercises in the world. And if an exercise is any form of movement, then the choices are, quite LITERALLY, infinite.
