What’s your favorite workout?
My favorite workout is one that completely exhausts me – I love to jump and I love strength work! I like challenging myself trying new things.
Who’s your inspiration in the fitness world?
I have had many inspirations in our local fitness world Mimi Walsh, Megan Weymouth and Carol Perry when I was younger, Charlotte Armstrong and of course Jacki and Kathy later on 🙂
What are your music tastes?
High energy with heavy beats. I like most types of music but I will say country is not my favorite 😉
Do you have rhythm and do choreography or go with circuits & timed drills? I do have rhythm but I don’t choreograph my workouts. I get very creative you never know what to expect though I will always have a modification for anything you don’t feel comfortable doing.
Annemarie teaches great cardio strength combo classes includine MaxIntensity, AssKicker with Annemarie, Bootcamp and Pure Strength. She also accepts a limited amount of personal training clients.
What’s your favorite workout? Barre. It’s my absolute favorite. I started off with rowing when I first joined the team. However once I taught my first barre class I was hooked. I love the way it works every little muscle in the body. I love hearing from clients the were sore in places they never knew was possible. Side note. Barre clothes are the best 🙂
Who’s your inspiration in the fitness world? There are many people in the fitness world on a daily basis. I’m constantly browsing Instagram trying to get ideas. Some of my favorites are Tracey Mallet ~ founder of The Bootybarre and Simone De la Rue ~ founder of Body by Simone.
What are your music tastes? I have a very big range of music when it comes to my classes. In one playlist you can expect music from all decades. A lot of fun remakes. Anything that inspires & motivates me when I’m browsing Spotify gets added. Music can make or break the workout!
Do you have rhythm and do choreography or go with circuits & timed drills? I prefer to go with the flow of the class and vibe of the music playing than an actual beat, so you can count on me to move with YOU rather than the music to get the best workout!

What about YOU do you think your clients love about you?
*I think the way I can always find a way to connect on a personal level with my clients. Fitness is not just a physical experience, but mental and emotional as well. It’s important to me as a trainer, to remind individuals what they are capable of, when they may have forgotten themselves.
What’s your favorite workout?
I love a good cardio sweat fest!
Who’s your inspiration in the fitness world?
I follow so many different individuals in the fitness world; from athletes, to yogis, and other new mom’s trying to juggle it all. I feel that learning from different people creates a more well rounded Self; body, mind, and soul.
What are your music tastes?
As my clients know, I have a pretty eclectic taste in music and love bringing that into my classes. And of course I love my 80’s hairbands 🙂
Do you have rhythm and do choreography or go with circuits & timed drills?
Apparently I have rhythm, but only on a spin bike! I love creating my workouts around the playlist I’ve created

I am a local Aquidneck Islander and love being surrounded by water. I enjoy being at the beach or on the boat any chance I get.
I have always enjoyed being active but truly found my passion for fitness when I took my first boot camp with Jacki. I was so inspired by the Pulse community that I decided to take my love for fitness to the next level.
I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine certified personal trainer. High energy workouts that take me to my physical limit are my favorite. Mixing strength training with bursts of cardio is a fun and exciting way to stay fit!
After becoming certified as a Personal Trainer I added a TRX Certification to my resume and also teach at Orange Theory Fitness.
I look forward to working with you in camp, class or privately to help you achieve your goals!

Jenn is a former California girl turned New Englander. She began her journey into yoga back in high school, when she got curious about how she could add balance to her athletic lifestyle. Jenn took one hot yoga class and was hooked!
Jenn is a 400-hr certified yoga teacher through Strength & Soul Yoga and the Humble Warrior Yoga teacher training program. She is also registered with Yoga Alliance.
With a strong choreography background (and a bad a$$ playlist), you can expect Jenn to bring a well balanced flow that will leave your mind, body and spirit feeling strong & uplifted. The deep inner healing and self- growth that Jenn has experienced herself through a disciplined yoga practice is something that she is most passionate about bringing awareness to for others. Yoga is so much more than the physical practice, and Jenn can’t wait to help you explore that magic.
When she’s not on her mat, you can most likely find Jenn spending time with family and friends, on a beach with her toes in the sand, picking out only the best sea shells with her 4 year old son Austin and Golden Retriever Goose!
