I'M ANNIE

THIS IS WHERE MY STORY MEETS YOURS

 

I believe that women should feel strong, capable, and knowledgeable.

I want you to get the hell off of the elliptical, to know how to move well + to be in tune with your body, and the fuel you put in it.

I want you to LEARN. I don’t want to do this for you.  I want you to do this for yourself because it is the LIFESTYLE YOU DESERVE.

I lift heavy, but everyone starts somewhere + “heavy” is relative. My goal is to help you set REALISTIC goals, and lead you to success in this LONG HAUL to an empowered you.

 

Now here is a little background on your’s truly

 

My knick name in high school was "Mannie" because I LOVED lifting weights.  I suppose it was rather fitting...

I went to community college for my FITNESS TRAINING ASSOCIATES.

I continued to fall in love with weight lifting but I wanted more.

I moved on to Concordia University - Portland for my B.A. EXERCISE & SPORTS SCIENCE. 

I love education and learning about the human body. I thought, "I'm a badass and ONLY want to work with athletes." No thank you to the general population {times have clearly changed - forgive me}.

I INTERNED at University of Portland under two geniuses, Cat Wade and Bradford Scott, as a STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACH.

THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC BEGAN. I had to read and write programs for D1 athletes {no pressure}.  I didn't have a flippin' clue, but I knew I'd better learn REAL QUICK.

After two years at UP and finishing my college career I had fallen in love with WRITING PROGRAMS

+ Became a CERTIFIED STRENGTH & CONDITIONING SPECIALIST (CSCS).

 

After having several injuries due to poor movement or overuse (knee, hip, ankle, low back, and shoulder), undergoing rehab + interning at a performance based physical therapy clinic, writing programs for youth athletes, various D1 athletic teams, for my training partners and myself; my love for the body, movement patterns, and optimizing it’s potential is REAL.

It is what I am literally called to do, and I simply want you {the young mom, the college student, the middle aged woman trying to embrace her body} to feel as strong and capable as you possibly can. 

Have grace for yourself & LET’S DO THIS.

 

THE STRENGTH & LIFESTYLE YOU DESERVE IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK.

i'll see you there!
