IT'S WILD OUT THERE IN FITNESS.
THE NEVER-ENDING INFORMATION CAN MAKE IT FEEL LIKE WHAT YOU'RE DOING ISN'T ENOUGH
OR THAT IT'S WRONG IN SOME WAY.
IT'S INTIMIDATING AND YOU'RE NOT EVEN SURE HOW TO GET STARTED.
NOT TO MENTION THAT GOING TO THE GYM IS THE WORST AND YOU CAN'T RELAX. IT FEELS KIND OF LIKE YOU'RE PLAYING THE ROLE OF SOMEONE WHO DOES THIS....BUT THIS DOESN'T FEEL LIKE YOUR CROWD.
YOU'RE SPORTING YOUR FAVOURITE, COMFORTABLE (MAYBEE SOMEWHAT WRINKLED) T-SHIRT, SURROUNDED BY WHAT APPEAR TO BE ACTIVEWEAR ENTHUSIASTS.
THE YELLING AND SHAMING IN THE FITNESS CLASSES DOESN'T REALLY SAY APPROACHABLE...
SO INSTEAD, YOU'RE FRANTICALLY SCROLLING YOUR PHONE,
TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT KIND OF EXERCISE YOU SHOULD OR SHOULD NOT BE DOING
YOU WANT TO GET IT DONE AND GET. THE. HECK. OUT. BEFORE YOU RUN OUT OF

Hi, I'm Anna Bolte!
I've been in the fitness industry for over 10 years but it wasn't until I had my first baby that I saw it: there were massive gaps in the women's health, fitness, and athleticism space.
Women are commonly experiencing symptoms such as prolapse, diastasis recti, and navigating major life events like pregnancy and postpartum with little to no support.
Typical fitness programs, gyms, and coaches frequently do not consider the needs, struggles, or real lives of busy moms and parents.
The "look" that fitness and some women's health spaces have tends to be oppressive and excludes BIPOC, LGBTQ+ , people living in larger bodies, and other folks in marginalized bodies.
Many folks have had disappointing, disrespectful, or intimidating gym experiences that have put them further away from their goals and training entirely.
This is exactly what motivated me to build a welcoming, educational, anti-oppressive space - both in-person and virtually - to better support the women and folks that I get the opportunity to work with.
I can help you to feel confident in the gym and in life, and to gain power, capability, knowledge, and the support system you need to do all the things you love without hesitation.
Individualized support for your unique situation and goals.
Small, supportive groups working together towards a similar goal.
Pregnancy & Postpartum Coaching
Guidance and education as you enter into these important chapters.
Online Training Options
Support wherever feels best to you.
"I BEGAN WORKING WITH ANNA A YEAR AGO.
I WAS RECOVERING FROM AN ACHILLES INJURY. I WAS SCARED TO RUN, JUMP OR EVEN DO SQUATS FOR FEAR OF RE-INJURING.
ANNA WORKED CLOSELY WITH ME TO MAKE SURE I DID NOT HURT MYSELF AND SHE HELPED ME OVERCOME MY FEAR! I CAN NOW RUN, JUMP, AND DO SQUATS.
ANNA IS AN AMAZING PERSON TO WORK WITH!" - LORI
