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.

Ankle mobility is a problem for A LOT of people. Most of my clients do not pass the ankle mobility assessment when starting out. You should be able to touch your knee to the wall while keeping your entire foot (heel) in the ground with your big toe 4.5 inches from the wall, one ankle […]

How to Increase Your Ankle Mobility [videos included]

Maybe you’ve started or want to start an online business. I know what you’re thinking. And guess what, it’s not a fancy website or a pretty logo. I speak from experience. I had a website and a program and NO ONE TO SELL IT TO. First off, you need to #1 – Solve a problem […]

Build an online business with these five things

Train, eat well, and be joyful during the holidays. The holidays bring stress from social pressures, financial pressures, the feeling that you need to have accomplished something spectacular by the time the new year rolls around. It’s an event filled, alcohol consuming, schedule ruining, and sweets overloaded time of year. With all that said, the […]

How to train, eat well and be joyful during the holidays

How we’ve been traveling the world. It’s old news that world travel is VERY doable these days. You don’t need to be rich and you don’t need to have any previous experience. With the internet, airbnb, and the use of wifi all over the world to search the best food, hidden gems, cheapest flights and […]

What you need to know in order to travel the world for one year

Batching – get more done in less time for the same result? One of my first mentors, Marie Forleo, introduced me to this time saving, result making tactic.

Does having a certification make you a better trainer? Certification is a very broad word, covering a lot of possibilities. We must first lay out the fact that not all certifications are created equal.  Certifications do not equal good coaching; they represent time put in, and knowledge gained. Even that may be generous.  Letters behind a […]

Annie Miller CSCS discusses certifications for trainers and strength coaches

From running to weights, to any type of exercise, why do we really do it? I never put it together. My motivation behind the type of exercise I choose to take part in. I always say “because it makes me feel strong, capable, and in-tune with my body.” Which is all true. But those feelings […]

Annie Miller shares her core reason for exercise between lifting weight and running.

“Do you prescribe what weights to use in this program?” This is one of the most common questions I get as a remote strength coach. The answer? No. I rarely prescribe specific weights; and definitely not for non personalized programs. That doesn’t mean I can’t help you determine what weights to be using. I’ve got […]

Annie Miller's Golden Rule for determining what weight to use for strength training

There’s a lot of talk these days about the suppression of women. This is undoubtedly a sensitive subject. And I’d be naive, maybe even ignorant, to think this post won’t ruffle some tail feathers. Fact of the matter is, I’ve got some thoughts on the subject and this is my blog. So here we are. […]

Tattoos are not for those who fear commitment or suffer from analysis paralysis. I should preface this somewhat “impulsive“ sounding title with the fact that I’ve had most of these tattoos drawn for 10 years. So why the week before we set off on our year of world travels? In short, it felt right. Kind […]
