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 beautiful. i see you.

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.

My favorite performance enhancing training accessories. With copious amounts of training accessories out there from straps to bands to shoes and electronics, it’s hard to know what’s really worth it. I am here to help and even share my favorites with you. All of these tools are PERFORMANCE ENHANCING. They help you lift more, get […]

“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. […]

There is no manual on gym etiquette. But there are certainly some unwritten rules that one should follow. In my world travels I have had quite a few experiences in the gym that break the code and would certainly be against public gym etiquette. I’ve always been a stickler for respect and following the rules, in […]

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 […]

Working Harder + Smarter I grew up in a very hard working household; but it was not one of high or even middle class income. For me, working hard was something you did because it was expected, and it was a part of your character. We were proud to be hard workers. But working hard […]

Learn what you need to do instead

Travel – Santiago Vlog – Santa Lucia Santiago Chile has many things to see. You can drive two hours from edge to edge and still be in the city. Most things to see happen to be within 20 minute of the city center. One of which is the Santa Lucia Park. It is a refreshingly […]

I give you permission to conquer this fear I’ve been lifting in a different country, with different customs, different gym etiquette, different metric system and different equipment all together.  In the midst of all this, YOU game to mind. Yes YOU. Through my 10+ years of weight room experience – from the YMCA, to crossfit, […]
